New Orleans, Jackson Square

Becoming is Superior to Being


Jackson Square, New Orleans (December 28, 2015) — Image by kenne

After hours joints have closed
The music has faded away,
Even the horn player
In front of the cathedral.

A new world takes over,
The night people lost in the fog
As if hiding from the light
And the people of the dawn.

In Jackson Square, the show goes on
With the new day, a new act
Enters from stage left and right,
Carrying their daily wares.

This ritual, old as the city,
Played out as people walk by,
Only briefly noticing a passing soul,
Neither greeting the other.

Protected by the levee
On the edge of the big muddy
Visitors a wait the man with the key
To open the Place d’Armes gates.

Entering the historical Jackson park
Gazing on “Old Hickory,”

The Humbling

Live & Learn


Al Pacino and Barry Levinson on Age, Accomplishments and ‘The Humbling’:

Mr. Pacino, 74, is playing Simon Axler in The Humbling. Axler is an aging actor whose memory and stamina are failing him. He fears his opportunities are drying up and audiences no longer recognize him.

Q: “The Humbling” deals with a character who is despairing because he’s growing older and believes he’s no longer proficient at the things that defined him. Are these feelings you’ve experienced yourselves?

Al Pacino: Oh, yeah. What film is this again? [Laughter] There are professions where there are certain tools you depend on. With the actor it’s the memory, and also it’s the stamina. You can’t coast in some of these Shakespearean roles. They’re uncoastable. You can imagine the kind of panic that sets in when you realize you can’t get through this.

Q: Is a crisis of confidence like the one your…

I feel sore today. And it is my fault. I did not stretch well enough yesterday, was in a bit of a hurry after the workout. I am pretty happy with my workout week again as I stuck to the plan. I am just trying to figure out now how I can incorporate the running again into the training, as I want to be able to run 10km until April latest. But with the current workout schedule it seems a bit tricky.

Una gran amiga publicó esto en su Facebook el día de hoy. Me encantó, tiene toda la razón. Hay que honrar la vida. Ojalá que los inspire como a mí.

“Es una virtud, es dignidad y es la actitud de identidad, más definida. Eso de durar y transcurrir no nos da derecho a presumir. Porque no es lo mismo que vivir, honrar la vida… Porque no es lo mismo permanecer que transcurrir, honrar la vida”.

Este Lenguaje del Amor

Reflexiones del Corazón


Aquí leyendo “Los 5 Lenguajes del Amor” escrito por Gary Chapman, el describe con lujos de detalles que la palabra Amor puede ser de mucha confusión. Nos gustan las actividades, objetos, animales, la naturaleza, y la gente. Hasta nos enamoramos del Amor. Él dice que usamos el Amor para explicar los comportamientos. “Lo hice porque la amo” dice un hombre que está teniendo una relación adúltera. Dios llama eso pecado, pero Él es El Amor. La esposa de un alcohólico recoge los pedazos después del episodio que acaba de tener su esposo otra vez. El Psicólogo llama esto codependencia, pero él lo llama Amor. Los padres complacen a los hijos en todo. El Terapista Familiar llama esto Irresponsabilidad de los padres, sin embargo ellos los llaman Amor.

Yo no me creo ser Psicóloga, o profesora, ministro, o consejera. Soy una mujer como cualquier otra. Soy amiga, hija, prima, hermana, esposa…

Happy MLK Day!

We often forget that teamwork requires us to come together with responsibility and commitment. Teamwork can make dreams come true and help us realize our goals. We must be able to communicate appropriately and come together in leadership by listening to each other with respect. We must be willing to share and be humble enough to know that there is strenght in joining forces to meet our common goal. Together we can conquer and in teamwork we can overcome and triumph. Frequently, without the team, we lose, but shoulder to shoulder we can succeed. These much needed skills are key to being able to work jointly in any job or with any group. Many forget that without it, often failure will come to all.

“We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education. The complete education gives one not only power of concentration, but worthy objectives upon which to concentrate.”

“People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don’t know each other; they don’t know each other because they have not communicated with each other.”

“The time is always right to do the right thing.”

“Now there is a final reason I think that Jesus says, “Love your enemies.” It is this: that love has within it a redemptive power. And there is a power there that eventually transforms individuals. Just keep being friendly to that person. Just keep loving them, and they can’t stand it too long. Oh, they react in many ways in the beginning. They react with guilt feelings, and sometimes they’ll…
