Adversity? #Quote: “Claim your experience. Don’t let it claim you…” #Jarvis, Debra vía #TEDx

#Quote: “Claim your experience. Don’t let it claim you…” #Jarvis, Debra vía #TEDx

Relevant Excerpt:


Many years ago, I had a patient, just a wonderful young man who was loved by the staff, and so it was something of a shock to us to realize that he had no friends. He lived by himself, he would come in for chemotherapy by himself, he would receive his treatment, and then he’d walk home alone. And I even asked him. I said, “Hey, how come you never bring a friend with you?” And he said, “I don’t really have any friends.” But he had tons of friends on the infusion floor. We all loved him, and people were going in and out of his room all the time. So at his last chemo, we sang him the song and we put the crown on his head and we blew the bubbles, and then I asked him, I said, “So what are you going to do now?” And he answered, “Make friends.” And he did. He started volunteering and he made friends there, and he began going to a church and he made friends there, and at Christmas he invited my husband and me to a party in his apartment, and the place was filled with his friends. Claim your experience. Don’t let it claim you. He decided that the meaning of his experience was to know the joy of friendship, and then learn to make friends.

Nichiren’s #Gosho – on Lessening Karmic Retribution and facing ‘Obstacles’… (#WorldViews on #WorldPeace, attained through individual reformation)

7 Oct


Sadly (or fortunately?) seeking a “Path of Least Resistance” does not ‘jive’ with what we do – we are supposed to rejoice at encountering hurdles.

Why? ‘cuz then we are supposed to grow in the process of overcoming them.

(That’s how the ‘overdrafts’ are also taken care of, so to speak, when seeing ‘karma’ as a sort of an ‘account’, if you will)

Anywho – snapping this snippet of the ‘major writings’ (Jpn – Gosho) as it is pretty timely, indeed.

(Lessen – Vergessen – Mittagsessen… Yup, I can ramble and alliterate in a few!)… a sort of curse, BTW, when the predominant style is ‘plain spoken’

Good morning Cloud.

Another ‘Feature’ DayView? #WanderlustWednesdays (o “Cuando Las Quimeras Queman”)

8 Feb

Well, esta semana nos hemos dedicado a “organizar” el blog en función de “segments” los cuales potencialmente nos permitirán “enfocar” los diferentes aspectos que una bien llevada autobiografía nos pueden prestar, ambos como narrativa y como fundación a largo plazo… (and yeah, this time, we beg the main local audience, for the #Spanglish #AudioCaption to come out, as we have been busy with real life today, yet wanted the Segment’s DayView to proceed as ‘freshly’ as possible…)

Anyway, como dicen, para muestra? Un botón!


Y el botón anterior?

Es una pintura del sitio donde aterrice, allá en los sesenta, de un sitio otrora celestial, apodado como “Capital del Cielo”, Ciudad de “Eterna Primavera” y si, un sitio que a est distancia, anhoramos con pasión y nostalgia que solo puede nacer de una decisión tan costosa como un voluntario exilio.

Luego les contaremos mas; por ahora, repito, solo para dejar que el HashTag salga al torrente, y bueno, para no dejar de pasar un solo día sin bloggear!

#DailyJournal-ing (#AudioBlog)

… Cuando te Despides de un Buen Amigo… Sayin’ Goodbye to a Goodfriend… no son muchas las emociones, pero todas son profundas, si… when we have to say goodbye to a friend, the emotions are not many, but they are surely deep!

Dia 62/62nd Day of #3rdWinter? “Paramo Plummets” & “Hemisferios Encendidos” #FF & #Latinos

20 Jan

Buenos Días, Universo Celestial!

Hoy, reenfocandonos al punto donde queríamos llegar, en función del actual retooling, es decir, que el blog salga antes que nada en Hemisférico Spread One (Castellano); luego vendremos, pasaremos el rastrillo mecanizado y de seguro nos reiremos un rato con la manera como el Google interpretara el Root Alpha y nuestros intentos en Portunhol; hoy hay trabajo en el horario, por lo cual, si los hacemos esperar, mil disculpas!

Entonces al afinar queremos asimismo darle relevancia no solo a la autobiografía sino a la actualidad: el que hatee hubiésemos pensado volver al DVR’d versión of the South Carolina Primary Debate, bueno, que buenas causas hicimos que al final del interludio familiar tan necesario, resulta que no solo vimos el formato destilado y comentado del highlight, sino que @CNN decidió volver a pasar el rerun entero; debemos admitir que el “Plato Fuerte” lo pusieron al comienzo, tremendo “Command Performance” del #ProfesorGingrich en función de las cosas que según dijo en el pasado; y mas que el punto en si, el cual tendemos a olvidar en medio del posterior análisis, fue el como fue manejado, jugando con las audiencias, bases y localidades para un excelente “Tono de Testosterona”…

… En fin, el resto se lo diré en #MP3; por ahora, el nuevo reporte del tiempo, “#BroughtToYouBy @Yahoo & @Apple (and that other choice carrier which I’m afraid to mention due to potential misinterpretations of contractual obligations, yo!)



BUT before I go, and as I am working on getting back into #FF..,

“Young Hispanics in America are eager to lead new types of conversations about their local community to build national credibility. Their socially conscious thinking and their ability to keep conversations moving across multiple channels and platforms via social media allows them to cultivate fresh perspectives and an influential voice. As one of the young Hispanics at the Town Hall told me (after the event), “I am tired of the old guard’s attitude. While I respect the doors they have opened for my generation, they must let go of their anger and use that energy by sharing their wisdom to inspire and guide us. They don’t understand the new generation of Latinos and the challenges that we face. Their voices bring us down.” It is evident that young Latinos are ready to revitalize our (Hispanic) reputation and correct the misperceptions if only the older generations would begin to serve as mentors to enable their voices.”

En El 64 Día … On The 64th Day of #3rdWinter? #Epiphanies! #Epifanías!

17 Jan

Buenos Días a todos los que quizá leen, los pocos que se subscriben y por supuesto, a los arqueólogos de la nube paquetera, con quienes siempre cuento para motivarme en esta quijotesca aventura en la Blogosfera Circa 2012!

Parte Uno del Audio, nowadays mostly in Spanish, hints of Spanglish for those daring enough? (and the analysts, perhaps?)

Parte Dos (Warning: Contains some politically-driven-drivel… so there, I said I talked ’bout it!… #Primaries, indeed!)

Given the fact that perhaps my voice is not truly resonating in the current echo chamber that constitutes the #SocMed Spheres, that for the sake of acuity, definition and above all, marketability that I’ve decided to highlight my strengths by giving Spanish first billing and who knows, given the boundaryless nature of these communicational streams, give way to a more believable and authentic version of yours truly as after all the time being spent here, now being carefully measured against other, more traditional aspects of the “$earch”


Entonces ahora que estamos un poco mas claros con respecto al enfoque, nuestro tradicional segmento del clima! #Unsponsored by @AlGore’s accoladed Opus on why I am now wondering about all the winter gear, and that quiza la Fourth Layer that just melted, well…

Si! Rehicimos la Aritmética y según hoy es día 64 del #3rdWinter! Son dos meses, quizá los peores, pero con #GroundHogDay solo a…. 16? Días de distancia, q’ les digo…. Seguimos!
