HONORING PUERTO RICO

“That looks like a Puerto Rican statue of liberty on steroids.”

(a friend told me)

Some of you may know, others not.

I am a fan of tattoos, having a few of them myself.

I’m also Puerto Rican, born and raised, living in the mainland.

Since September 20, 2017, when Hurricane María battered and almost flattened my country, my personal feelings have come to the surface.

My heart and soul ache for Puerto Rico.

Today I visited my tattoo artist again for add ons, updates, coloring and, mostly, for completion.

Colors, shading, The ‘cemí’, the hibiscus flowers, the ‘Taíno coquí’ and the ‘Taíno sun‘ were completed.

It is still a bit swollen, it’s still a bit ‘shiny’. 

The process is almost totally done.

Give a few weeks for skin healing and then another ‘sitting’ for any needed last detail.

My tattoo artist, Barefoot Stacy, is amazing!

Here it is!

This is a proud Boricua woman, holding her head up high, ready to hold her stand and give the good fight.

This happens in Puerto Rico every minute of every day.

The fortitude of the Puerto Rican woman has been tested during the trying times since Hurricane María battered the Island on September 20, 2018, a bit beyond six months ago today.

I wanted to share the ‘almost complete’ result with you today.

 More will follow as it’s totally done.

OSCAR LOPEZ RIVERA

♫ … ‘OH HAPPY DAY’ … ♫

This picture seems to portray Oscar coming out of the apartment building he has been confined to since his release in January 2017.

His ‘house arrest’ ended yesterday.

Notice the Puerto Rican flagpin near his heart!

What a sight for sore eyes!!

Resonating Thoughts #2 …. “Declare PEACE: Someone Has to Do It”!!


DeclarePeace

~~November 16, 2015~~ 

SOMEONE HAS TO DO IT

Declare World Peace

One syllable, five letters, containing so much grace.
You’d think each single soul would find it easy to embrace.
Whispered in the darkness by those who live in fear.
Shouted from the mountaintops for everyone to hear.

Elusive as the wind that blows it often slips away.
Leaving in its shadow, pain and sorrow in the fray.
Let us join together as we call for war to cease.
Let us all agree to all declare we want world peace.

In every corner of the world in every language known.
Speak the words of peace in every country, every zone.
Add your voice until we drown the noise of hate and war.
Until the sound of peace becomes a loud and thunderous roar.

~~September 23, 2015~~

‘FRANCIS EFFECT’ HAS TAKEN HOLD

Within two years of becoming pope, Pope Francis now has an effect named after him.

This “Francis effect” provides both comfort and challenges to Catholics, according to a panel of U.S. Catholic leaders speaking during a March 10 teleconference organized by Faith in Public Life.

Pope Francis “challenges those on the left and the right,” said Kim Daniels, a senior adviser to the group Catholic Voices. For the right, she added, the challenge is “a fresh look at poverty”; for the left, “a fresh look at how to build a culture of life.”

SHEEP IN THE ISLAND, #2

A short, animated film for adults. Not really for children.

Two ships collide in the middle of nowhere and sink in the ocean. An island can be seen nearby.

Two boxes make it safely to shore.

There’s a third box approaching the Island.

Wonder what it could have in it?

Take a look. The third box is opening

Hope you enjoy!

Cats Knocking Stuff on the Floor …. “Lighthearted Video, #2”!!


Cats

~~July 14, 2015~~ 

“I CLEANED THE COUNTER FOR YOU”

Let’s face it, cats have an evil streak in them.

Whether they’re trying to get back at us for something we did (that we likely don’t even realize) or they’re just feeling like little punks, cats have a way to get right under our skin.

It seems like all cats enjoy knocking our things onto the floor, no matter how fragile.

Watch as these little felines push things onto the floor right in front of our eyes!

No shame, kitties, no shame.

But even if they’re being bad, we can’t help but love how cute they are.

Natalie …. the piano player from Melbourne, Australia!!


~~November 5, 2014~~ 

You’d Never Notice This Old Woman On The Street, But Hearing Her Play Is Magical

80-year-old Natalie Trayling has been been soothing the weary hearts and souls of Melbourne with her piano playing for years now.

Once homeless, Natalie’s life has been marked by tragedy, including the deaths of two daughters, a son’s battle with depression, and a scholarship to London’s Royal Academy of Music that she had to turn down at 15 because her family didn’t have the money, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

She now plays on the streets of Melbourne, chauffeured by her son Matthew, who captured this amazing performance of a piece she wrote when she was just 13.

~Natalie: Iconic Melbourne Piano Street Performer~

Untitled original piece

~Published on Jan 21, 2014~

Matthew Trayling

This musical piece was composed between the age of 13 and 14 and finished some years later. Another insight into the mind of this musical genius. Enjoy. I made a comment 12 days ago after observing the dramatically increasing views on YouTube of this video I filmed an uploaded of Natalie (my mum) that reaching 100,000 views would be a wonderful gift for her 80th Birthday being tomorrow. Well  …. it seems at this stage (884,272 views) that it might just make “ONE MILLION” at some stage during the day. This is not just phenomenal.. It’s rightly earned by her. The world is listening, and not just listening to an old lady playing piano on the street, but listening to musical genius.

(This morning when I checked: 2,412,612 YouTube views)
