“…Quién se acordará”

“…Quién, en fin, al otro día,
cuando el sol vuelva a brillar,
de que pasé por el mundo,
¿quién se acordará?”

Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer
(fin de la rima LXI)

“Good Morning!!!”

This week WPC is “Good Morning”…And Today is the “Worl Smile Day” …So, I have been thinking and thinking…
Usually everybody starts the day  more or less the same way: shower, coffee, tea, rush, rush, traffic jam, work, rush, rush…
Please!
Take just two minutes….No more….
Inspire…Move the muscles of your face….And…

“Start every day off with a smile and get it over with”

W.C. Fields

Smile

May be it can help…

The Sea…An Eternal Beginning…

“The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too  impatient.

One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach …

Waiting for a  gift from the sea.”

Anne  Morrow Lindbergh

This Week the Photo Challenge is “The Sea“…What is for us the sea? I truly believe Anne´s words…To me the sea is like a box I can open any time…And any time something different will be offered to me, depending on my mood, on my happiness or on my sorrows…

Today in London…

All of you that follow my blog for sure have noticed I never make any statement about news across the world, about politics, about religion….

But, today….Today I have seen the most awful and sickening thing in my life…A man was standing in front of a camara, bloodied hands with a machete and a knife, saying he had to kill somebody, saying eye for eye, tooth for tooth, saying he was sorry women had to see this, but women in their land had to see that every day..

And all of this was in London…!!!!

Are we crazy? How is it posible somebody can kill someone with a machete in the middle of our cities, and he is even filmed after?

What is that crap about some assessin just being in front of a camera, with bloodied hands, like if he had been killing a pig in the middle of the village, just patronizing us about what we have to do and how sorry about giving that spectacle to “your women?”

Who is he to threaten all of us????

I am a woman…I am not English, but Basque..I have been living in the middle of two different war.conflicts…And I think I have never felt myself so attacked and sickened as today, looking at the TV news…

Terrorism is awful, but barbarie is worse…

They were old…

They were old…

They passed me on the street,
engulfed and almost hidden among the mass of people…

They were old and small…
But they did not seem to care…

They had just enough
taking care of them both…

They were old

Loneliness…Or Solitude?

Today I went out with Sigh, as usual…

…And this I found in the middle of the forest…

It struck my eyes…

And felt a little pain in my heart…

“When everyone leaves you

it is loneliness you feel…

When you leave everyone else

it is solitude”

Photo Story Challenge: Letter “N”

Good morning to everybody…

Today Frizztext challenge is about the letter “N”: http://flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2012/10/02/story-challenge-letter-n/

So, taking into account that today is as well the International  “Non Violence” Day, I want to add this picture…

I saw it at Dachau…

Never again…

I do not want to be a coward…

I do not want to silence anything I do not like…

I do not want to close my eyes to anything that I know it is wrong…

Never!!!

Casi Las 10 de la Noche..Es El Momento Perfecto….

 SPANISH

Son casi las 10 de la noche…Es el momento perfecto… El momento de pensar en las oportunidades perdidas del día…En aquellas que ni siquiera se dignaron aparecer… En las que nos sorprendieron…En  las que alegraron nuestra jornada…En todo aquello que hoy hemos logrado y en lo que hemos dejado de lado…

Hoy…Claro…El mundo es grande…Tal vez mi noche es aún tu día…Tal vez aún andes bañando a tu bebito, paseando a tu perro, buscando  la fotografía perfecta, acudiendo a una recepción un tanto glamurosa y un mucho aburrida…Tal vez estés aún trabajando, mirando una pantalla llena de luces verdes, rezando para que no aparezca una roja en el último momento…

Pero, al final, serán las 10 de la noche…

Un poco más pronto, algo más tarde…

Y, estés donde estés, será el momento perfecto para coger una copa, un bombón, un cigarro, tu amor de toda la vida o simplemente los pedacitos de tu alma perdida….

Será el momento para acercarte a la ventana  y  mirar al  mar, al  jardín, al río del pueblo o al  edificio posmoderno de enfrente…Para elevar tu mirada al cielo y descubrir las estrellas brillando en lo alto…Para dar gracias , para pedir más, para  gritar con rabia, o para llorar en silencio…

Serán las 10 de la noche….Y me gustaría que, al menos hoy, tuvieras la seguridad de que alguien, cerca o lejos, ha pensado en ti…

ENGLISH

It is almost 10 o clock at night….It is the perfect moment…The moment to think about the lost opportunities of the day….About the opportunities that did not show up…The opportunities that surprised us…The opportunities that made our day…About  all those things  that we accomplished today and all those we left for tomorrow…

Today…Alas…The world is big…Maybe my night is still your day…Maybe you are still bathing your little baby, walking your dog, looking for the perfect photograph, attending a glamorous and yet boring reception …Maybe you are still working, your eyes fixed on screen full of little green lights, praying for them not to change to red at the very last moment….

But, at the end, sooner or later, it will be 10 o clock at  night….

And it will be the perfect moment to grab a drink, a chocolate, a cigarette, your true love or just the little pieces of your lost soul….

It will be the moment to approach the window and   look at the sea, at the garden, at the village ´s river, or just the postmodern building that stands silently in front…It will be the moment to lift your eyes, and to discover the stars shining in the sky…It will be the moment to thank, to pray for more, to shout in anger, or simply to cry in silence…

It will be 10 o´clock at night…And I would like you to be reassured that, at least today, near or far away, somebody has been thinking about you….

And here is the perfect song.
