The Beginning of the End?


‘THE BEGINNING OF THE END?’ …. my hopes exactly!!

Filosofa's Word

It started when media mogul Harvey Weinstein stood accused of crimes against women.  Not, mind you, a few women, but it seems sometimes that every female who ever aspired to become an actress in Hollywood has, at one time or another, been sexually harassed or abused by none other than Harvey Weinstein.  Once his accusers began telling their stories, it was if a floodgate had been opened, as if the tears that had been held in check for years, decades, suddenly began to flow freely, and there could be no stopping them. Even today Weinstein is headline news.  A movement by women who have been victims of men abusing their power called #me too, went viral on social media, and suddenly women were empowered.  Weinstein does not stand alone … such notables as NBC’s Matt Lauer, writer Garrison Keillor, playwright Israel Horovitz, Senate candidate Roy Moore, actors Kevin Spacey and…

JOHN BOB

I have a very dear friend, across the pond, who has been following the Puerto Rico situation with me. He has been a support for me during this trying time.

Here’s another poem that he has written for my country.

John Bob will always have a special place in my heart for as long as I live.

THANK YOU, JOHN BOB

~John Bob Poem~

Sad a sight of ragged flag,
And disorder all around.
Help us now
To restore from plight our shatter island home
For storm that came and left a dread and lost beyond
belief,
Cry with us and remember, well that befell us then
For to you, the fate could come again
and help be not at hand
So those that have a small donate to help your fellow man

We are but proud and asking not our way
As author is this piece of rhyme I ask on their behalf
a cent a dime a dollar enough for coffee drink.
Enough to restore a gem in blue yonder sea
to see PUERTO RICO shine as was once before.
A new flag atop of mast but just below,
the tatters of
A flag to remind of hardship past and renewal now at last .

With Dedication to all those that lost, RIP

John Bob

Plena Puertorriqueña

~MANOLO AND OLGA~

It’s December 1.

The holiday season has already started.

It will be a bittersweet celebration in Puerto Rico. Yet, the Boricua spirit will never be vanquished.

This is a new song, dropping at the perfect time, with the perfect message. The Puerto Rican people shows their strength and resilience during difficult times.

“Que rico es poder decir que yo soy Puertorriqueño, que rico es poder decir que yo soy Puertorriqueño, enamorao de mi tierra de mi cultura y mi pueblo … 

Sube esa bandera al son de una rica plena … “

#YoNoMeQuito

The plena originated in Ponce, Puerto Rico around 1900

It was first heard in the neighborhood Barriada de la Torre, whose population consisted mostly of immigrants from St. Kitts, Tortola and St. Thomas, who had settled on the island since the late 1800’s. Originally, sung texts were not associated with the plena, which was rendered by guitar, accordion and pandero, but eventually, in 1907, singing was added.

Plena was often called the periodico cantado or “sung newspaper” for the lower classes because it spread messages among people, similar to the corridos in Mexico. The traditional center of plena was probably San Antón, a barrio of Ponce, although the black neighborhood of Loíza is also mentioned as the heartland for the genre. Its popularity peaked in the 1920’s.

Yo Soy Puertorriqueño, Plena Puertorriqueña, con Manolo Ramos y Olga Tañon

Letra y Música: Manolo Ramos

Publicadora: Warner Chap

Cuando me preguntan que donde fue que nací, se me hace un nudo en la garganta y les digo así, nací donde el cielo mostró su primera estrella fue jugo de tamarindo mezclao con parcha, china y quenepa …

De Puerto Rico, Lelolelolelola, Borinqueeeen!

Que rico es poder decir que yo soy puertorriqueño, que rico es poder decir que yo soy Puertorriqueño, enamorao de mi tierra de mi cultura y mi pueblo.

Si tu eres Boricua sientes igual que yo estoy sintiendo.

Le agradezco al cielo, porque fue en este lugar donde abrí mis ojos pa’ ver el sol y aprender amar rodeao de palmeras y el mas bello mar azul
