IOTD …. “Image of the Day”, #119!!


~~January 1, 2015~~ 

Topo Gigio wishes all of you a very Happy New Year!! 

Topo Gigio was the lead character of a children’s puppet show on Italian and Spanish television in the early 1960s. The character, created by artist Maria Perego, debuted on Italian television in 1959 and has been customarily voiced by actor Giuseppe “Peppino” Mazzullo and later Davide Garbolino. The Italian nickname “Gigi” is a derivative of Luigi (“Louis”), so Topo Gigio could be translated as Louie Mouse.

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

To start the day …. “The ‘Other Christmas Letter’ From Children To Their Parents!!”


~~December 20, 2014~~ 

To my English speaking friends and readers, the ad is in Spanish (from Spain and their specific intonation). However, there are subtitles and you won’t miss the message. 

Hope you enjoy it.

Watching TV around Christmas can be a minefield for children and parents alike, with all those toy commercials. But in this case, IKEA Spain came up with a campaign called #LaOtraNavidad (The other Christmas) in which they present ‘the other letter’ written by children to their parents, after asking the Three Kings for numerous gifts in their first letters.

All the kids in the video end up making the same petition to their parents: to spend more time playing together; which, needless to say, brought the adults to tears as they read their children’s wishes.

The producing agency assures the moving commercial is real and unscripted, what do you think?

To start the day …. “Electra”!!


~~December 1, 2014~~

A vivacious, energetic musical piece by Chris Spheeris. Gloriously interpreted by this wonderful group of dancers. 

Reminds me very much of flamenco.

Flamenco is a form of Spanish folk music and dance from the region of Andalucia in southern Spain. It includes cante (singing), toque (guitar playing), baile (dance) and palmas (handclaps). First mentioned in literature in 1774, the genre grew out of Andalucian and Romani music and dance styles. Flamenco is often associated with the gitanos (Romani people of Spain) and a number of famous flamenco artists are of this ethnicity. Flamenco was first recorded in the late 18th century but the genre underwent a dramatic development in the late 19th century.

IOTD …. “Image of the Day”, #88!!

“The young, free to act on their initiative, can lead their elders in the direction of the unknown … The children, the young, must ask the questions that we would never think to ask, but enough trust must be re-established so that the elders will be permitted to work with them on the answers.”
~~Margaret Mead~~

A child named Josef sits on a stone porch outside his home in Chupon, Peru on Sept. 1, 2014. The village lies in the Peruvian Andes in the province of Ayacucho, and houses about 30 peasants who subsist on farming corn and potatoes.

At the end of the day …. “The Alhambra”!!


~~November 27, 2014~~ 

Alhambra, the complete form of which was Calat Alhambra, is a palace and fortress complex located in Granada, Andalucia, Spain. It was originally constructed as a small fortress in 889 and then largely ignored until its ruins were renovated and rebuilt in the mid-11th century by the Moorish emir Mohammed ben Al-Ahmar of the Emirate of Granada, who built its current palace and walls. It was converted into a royal palace in 1333 by Yusuf I, Sultan of Granada.

Alhambra’s Islamic palaces, as we know them today, were built for the last Muslim emirs in Spain and the court of the Nasrid dynasty. After the conquest of Granada by the Reyes Católicos (“Catholic Monarchs”) in 1492, some portions were used by Christian rulers.

The Palace of Charles V, built by Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor in 1527, was inserted in the Alhambra within the Nasrid fortifications. After being allowed to fall into disrepair for centuries, the buildings being occupied by squatters, Alhambra was rediscovered in the 19th century by European scholars and travelers, with restorations commencing.

Al1

Moorish poets described it as “a pearl set in emeralds,” an allusion to the color of its buildings and the woods around them. The palace complex was designed with the mountainous site in mind and many forms of technology were considered.

The park (Alameda de la Alhambra), which is overgrown with wildflowers and grass in the spring, was planted by the Moors with roses, oranges, and myrtles; its most characteristic feature, however, is the dense wood of English elms brought by the Duke of Wellington in 1812.

The park has a multitude of nightingales and is usually filled with the sound of running water from several fountains and cascades. These are supplied through a conduit 8 km (5.0 mi) long, which is connected with the Darro at the monastery of Jesus del Valle above Granada.

At the end of the day …. “Love Letters”!!


~~November 26, 2014~~ 

What I needed! Soft music, a sweet guitar and attraction. Swaying melody, seductive. Pulls me toward you. Because I love you!

I Do Not Love You Except Because I Love You

I do not love you except because I love you;
I go from loving to not loving you,
From waiting to not waiting for you
My heart moves from cold to fire.

I love you only because it’s you the one I love;
I hate you deeply, and hating you
Bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you
Is that I do not see you but love you blindly.

Maybe January light will consume
My heart with its cruel
Ray, stealing my key to true calm.

In this part of the story I am the one who
Dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love you,
Because I love you, Love, in fire and blood.

By Pablo Neruda
