Tell me why you are so white
Made of clear ice yet fairer than
Pearl . . . . . .

Tell me why you are all unique
Such that no two are the same
Crystal . . . . . .

Tell me why you are so delightful
As to be courted in Julie Andrews’ favourite things
Convivial . . . . . .

Tell me why you are six-sided
Rivaling the radial symmetry of radiant stars
Hexagonal . . . . . .

Tell me why you are so beautiful
Blazing with the sparkling perfection of gemstones
Inspirational . . . . . .

Tell me why you are modelled
By the self-similitude of recursive patterns
Infinitely fractal . . . . . .

Looking at Taíno Legacy from 1492 and Beyond


My heritage and identity!! … ‘“Taíno: Native Identity and Heritage in the Caribbean” … TAINO!!!

Repeating Islands

borinquenaWe have posted about this exhibition several times before, but it is always good to have a reminder to visit it soon. “Taíno: Native Identity and Heritage in the Caribbean” opened on July 28, 2018, and is on view until October 2019 at the National Museum of the American Indian (located at 1 Bowling Green, New York, New York). Here is a review from Remezcla.

The lives of Taínos are often framed through a colonialist lens. While Christopher Columbus’ violent colonization after stepping foot in Hispaniola in 1492 changed the course of history for Taínos, this Indigenous group didn’t just go extinct immediately after 1492. And a new exhibition is putting this into focus by exploring Taíno identity and legacy beyond Columbus.

Titled Taíno: Native Identity and Heritage in the Caribbean, the National Museum of the American Indian exhibition aims to offer a fuller picture of this group, including how Cubans…

♫ Imagine ♫ – Redux to Ring In a New Year


Another one of my favorites … and perfect to end this year or any year!!

Filosofa's Word

I have played this song twice in the past year, and it is not my goal to keep repeating the same song over and over.  But, it is New Year’s Eve, and we all, I think, have some hopes and aspirations for the world in the coming year.  As such, I thought there was no better song around to start us off on the right foot than John Lennon’s Imagine.  Listen to the words, if you will … let the music engulf and embrace you.  ‘Imagine there’s no countries … nothing to kill or die for’.  That is my hope … that is my dream.  Happy New Year, friends.

Imagine
John Lennon

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill…

I have a list of folks I know all written in a book,
And every year at Christmas time I go and take a look.
And that is when I realize that these names are of a part,
Not of the book in which they’re written, but of my very heart.

Each name stands for someone who has crossed my path sometime,
And in…

For last year’s words belong to last year’s language

And next year’s words await another voice.

And to make an end is to make a beginning.
