Dear Mr. President...

Imagine that Europe's governments would turns towards the "right" side.... Imagine -just for one second, although it could be a little bit hard and a nightmare...- that the future could make a step back.... yes! it is true! it could come if we are not more wise... and think about the importance of using our voice... and go to vote always! to claim for our rights to have a strong social system for Anyone! not only for a few...

I think that you are needing to forget not this......





Will you forget? so, if you don't... just let me know.......

Sometimes, only sometimes. the silent is just NOT an opinion... it is just a failure!

ONE YEAR...




ONE year could looks like a little time... because we use to say that "times literally flies!" or, in another hand, one year could be a long time to do a lot of things and pass by very, very slow... What is your situation regarding this question?

I've found today a nice smart quote that says the following:

If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.

George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Irish Author & Playwright

And the translation to spanish of course.....

“Si tú tienes una manzana y yo tengo una manzana, e intercambiamos las manzanas, entonces tanto tú como yo seguiremos teniendo una manzana. Pero si tú tienes una idea y yo tengo una idea, e intercambiamos ideas, entonces ambos tendremos dos ideas.”


George Bernard Shaw


Well, I would like to say that (after thinking about this issue) I think that if we SHARE in the most wide sense of the meaning... then we will get richer and maybe also.... One year could fly! :)


I was thinking now also in a song that I love.....

POESIA.... One of my poems


In 1998, I wrote a poem named "DELETE". The main theme was the way our memory sometimes is trying to forget the remeinders more painful for us. I was making a comparision (a methafore) with this. I was also translating it to english and one friend of mine helped me with the italian translation. I hope you will enjoy this... Also I would like to know more about what is (in general) your favourite poems? Do you have any recommendation? :)

DELETE

Existe un lugar,

en el transfondo de la memoria,

donde a veces nos empeñamos

en ocultar los recuerdos.

Ese lugar tiene una puerta,

de frío mármol,

y tras ella, todo queda

en absoluta oscuridad,

sin reproches, sin exigencias,

sin voz… en un páramo yermo.

Ese lugar pesa en nuestra alma,

como una losa, y tiene nombre:

se llama Olvido.


DELETE (FALL INTO OBLIVION)

There is a Place

In the background of memory

Where we insist on

Hiding the Reminders.

That place has a cold marble door,

And after it, all keep in silence,

full of darkness,

Beyond reproach, without demands,

Without voice… in a death state of mind...

That place weighs over our soul

Like a tombstone, and has a name:

It is called oblivion.


DELETE

Esiste un luogo,
nel più proffondo della memoria
dove a volte ci impegniamo
a nascondere i ricordi.
Quel posto ha una porta,
di freddo marmo
e dietro a essa, tutto rimane
nel buoi assoluto
senza ..., senza pretese,
senza voce... in uno spazio vuoto e infertile.
Quel posto pesa sulla nostra anima,
come una lapide, e ha un nome:
si chiama Oblio

CRISIS Y CREATIVIDAD - CRISIS & CREATIVITY


Albert Einstein

(1879 - 1955)

"No pretendamos que las cosas cambien si seguimos haciendo lo mismo. La crisis es la mejor bendición que puede sucederle a personas y países porque la crisis trae progresos.

La creatividad nace de la angustia como el día nace de la noche oscura. Es en la crisis que nace la inventiva, los descubrimientos y las grandes estrategias. Quien supera la crisis se supera a sí mismo sin quedar "superado".

Quien atribuye a la crisis sus fracasos y penurias, violenta su propio talento y respeta más a los problemas que a las soluciones. La verdadera crisis es la crisis de la incompetencia.

El inconveniente de las personas y los países es la pereza para encontrar las salidas y soluciones. Sin crisis no hay desafíos, sin desafíos la vida es una rutina, una lenta agonía. Sin crisis no hay méritos. Es en la crisis donde aflora lo mejor de cada uno, porque sin crisis todo viento es caricia. Hablar de crisis es promoverla, y callar en la crisis es exaltar el conformismo. En vez de esto trabajemos duro.

Acabemos de una vez con la única crisis amenazadora que es la tragedia de no querer luchar por superarla".

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

“Let’s not pretend that things will change if we keep doing the same things. A crisis can be a real blessing to any person, to any nation. For all crises bring progress.

Creativity is born from anguish, just like the day is born form the dark night. It’s in crisis that inventive is born, as well as discoveries, and big strategies. Who overcomes crisis, overcomes himself, without getting overcome. Who blames his failure to a crisis neglects his own talent, and is more respectful to problems than to solutions. Incompetence is the true crisis.

The greatest inconvenience of people and nations is the laziness with which they attempt to find the solutions to their problems. There’s no challenge without a crisis. Without challenges, life becomes a routine, a slow agony. There’s no merit without crisis. It’s in the crisis where we can show the very best in us. Without a crisis, any wind becomes a tender touch. To speak about a crisis is to promote it. Not to speak about it is to exalt conformism. Let us work hard instead.

Let us stop, once and for all, the menacing crisis that represents the tragedy of not being willing to overcome it.”

LEARNING ENGLISH

Sometimes it is very difficult to express yourself in another language. I am trying to learn english and danish and maybe someday... with a little bit patience and many work I will be able to speak (more or less) properly... meanwhile I will write this blog in my born language: spanish... :)

I would like to show you the funny situation that some spanish people have to face regarding mistakes with the language... In my life I also made mistakes similar to the ones you will watch on those videos from Fawlty Towers. This is a serial from the BBC around the 70's and there is a hotel with a very british owner (the Boss) and Manuel is a spanish man from Barcelona... he is very funny trying to learn and speak english. I adore him! Go ahead and enjoy!

OBAMA con Andalucía, un ejemplo de tolerancia y multiculturalidad

El presidente de los Estados Unidos de América, Barack Hussein Obama,ha visitado recientemente El Cairo (Egipto) y ha puesto como ejemplo de convivencia tolerante entre diferentes religiones el caso de Andalucía, y particularmente la situación en Córdoba, en los tiempos tras la reconquista por los católicos de las tierras que durante más de ocho siglos ocuparon los árabes. En ese periodo, judios, cristianos y munsulmanes convivían de forma pacífica y tolerante. Se aprendió a respetar al vecino, independientemente de sus creencias o forma de vida. El respeto hacia la multiculturalidad y la diversidad fue el ejemplo de que todo es posible si aprendemos a conocer y respetar nuestras diferencias. A veces es más lo que nos une... Empecemos a conocernos más y, compartamos o no las mismas ideas, seamos respetuosos y tolerantes.

Para todo hay un principio... ¿cuál fue el tuyo?

Para todo hay un principio, un momento en la vida en el cual nos parece que la existencia de ese momento hace cambiar el rumbo de todo lo que somos y seremos. A veces, ese principio se puede identificar claramente con una canción, con un hecho puntual, con una visita a un determinado lugar, con acciones tales como conocer a una persona, etc. ¿Puedes decirme qué cosa te hizo cambiar de rumbo? Seguro que nos sorprenderíamos si hiciéramos una lista con esas pequeñas-grandes cosas que nos anclaron a algo o a alguien tal vez... para siempre. Os pondré un ejemplo... en mi caso fue una canción.....
