BLACK OR WHITE

IN MEMORY OF MICHAEL JACKSON

Michael Jackson had a birthday last month.

We all miss his presence, his music and his talent.

I found this video this morning as I scrolled through my Facebook Timeline.

Even though Michael’s birthday has already passed, this tribute is worth a look.

At the beginning of the video, several current worldwide events are shown.

Black against white, terror attacks, continued wars, military might, police brutality, abuse of power, political status.

Anti-racism is one of the most important.

~Happy Birthday Michael Jackson~

Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009) was an American singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, and actor. Called the King of Pop, his contributions to music, dance, and fashion along with his publicized personal life made him a global figure in popular culture for over four decades.

Today, August 29, we celebrate the king of pop and everything he did for us. Michael wanted to spread good in our world trying to change the bad and heal the world for some of its problems.

Unfortunately the world is still in a troubling state.

In these times many people look at various links on social media and unfortunately react with fear, hatred and immediately close their arms. Instead we should open up our arms and look to solve the problems together.

There should be room for everyone in this world.

No matter what you look like, what religion you have or where you come from.

We are all one.

goldswirl

That’s the purpose of this video. To remind all of us how incredibly important love and freedom is and to put something good out into this world. Something that will unite people from all around the globe.

The world is beautiful.

We should all enjoy it together.

Humanity should be our race.

Love should be our religion.

Bittersweet day …. “My brother’s birthday …. 79th ….”

~~July 6, 2016~~ 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BROTHER

Today would have been my brother’s 79th birthday.

There were four main family members in my immediate family, my parents, my brother and myself.

Three of us have birthdays in July.

Today would have been my brother’s.

Wherever you are, please know that I love you and remember you always.

This is a note which I wrote for my brother when I returned home from his burial

My only brother — Jose Tomás Rexach-Rivera

My brother (Jose, Pepo II, Pepito) was born on July 6, 1937. I was born on July 1, 1950. The 13 year difference is obvious but it doesn’t mean that it was the intention of Hortensia & Pepo I (our parents) to have only the two of us. As a matter of fact they were quite busy – Catholic??? …. or the desire to have a big family, like my Dad’s???

Mami had seven pregnancies – 3 after Pepito, one of which produced another son called Jaime Luis. He lived only one day after his birth. Then I came along, the only girl. Luisito was born after me – on July 24, 1951. He lived only 1 year. My Mom found him in his crib – gone with the angels that watched over him.

Hence, only Pepito & I were the offspring of Hortensia & Pepo I.

As a kid, I remember getting into his stuff and, of course, getting in trouble. I also remember riding in Papi’s car arguing about which radio station to listen to – I think he wanted to listen to the American teenage music of the time while I wanted music in Spanish – that I could understand.

How can a teenager really argue with a kid, or vice versa ….?

GoldSwirlBroGIFGoldSwirl

As the years went by, mostly because of the age difference, each of us went our own merry ways. Pepito – the handsome lady-killer, awesome piano player – went to Mayaguez to study the family trade – engineering/construction. I still was young and stayed at home with my parents.

Eventually, my brother got married in 1964 – I was a bridesmaid – golden dress – (I have a bracelet charm to prove it!!). I grew up and went to study at the Catholic University of Puerto Rico.

Our lives continued in different directions.

There were the usual weekend visits to our parents. He came with his family, I came for the weekend from the West Coast of the Island. I think that that was the major extent of our interactions as adults.

Don’t get me wrong, we were in touch but both belonged to different generations. There were just different interests, wants and needs.

It wasn’t really until Mami and Papi moved to Mayaguez to be near me so that I could help Papi take care of Mami that our adult lives intersected again. I think that at this time, we started getting closer – he visited me when he came to see our parents, had dinners together in Boqueron, watched tv, etc. Vista Bahia Restaurant was a favorite.

We started getting closer as adults. He would stay in the Vista Verde house, which I think he really liked. It was there, in the family room, that he told me that his kidneys were failing. I remember and can visualize the day very clearly …

His kidneys deteriorated and eventually he needed dialysis – a killer treatment for those who go through it. He came out of these treatments drained, complications set in … But, a fighter he was. He never gave up. His faith kept him going.

When I traveled to Puerto Rico after Christmas ’09, I learned many things about my brother that I didn’t know. At the funeral home, people came up to me to tell he was their mentor, he was the best at his job, there was no one like him. He was faithfully religious, read his Bible regularly and lead a life that was ruled, it seems, by the Golden Rule –> Do unto others as they would do unto you.

At the cemetery, Joe, his minister, José, his son (Pepo III), his son Carlos and a Catholic Deacon said beautiful words about him and how he should be remembered and celebrated. At the burial site, friends mentioned funny things that he said and did. His dry humor was always present, his serious face was remembered – he seemed to have a hard shell but inside he was a softie – like our Dad, I think.

I felt like an outsider looking in – into the life of a person that I didn’t know well.

Before he was a husband, father, an engineer and a member of his Church group, he was a son and a brother. The same blood runs through our veins.

It seems as if he lived in two worlds – two worlds connected by his mere existence. That’s the beauty of him – seems that he fit well in both worlds. It was a progression from one to the other.

Looking back, I wish we would have been closer but nothing can be done about that now. The best I can do isl cherish the memories of our growing up and sharing what we shared.

Dear Brother

GO IN PEACE, REST IN PEACE

Know that I will miss you.

I will miss knowing that you are but a phone call away.

My brother – my only brother.

I’m the only one left of the original four.

Bog shoes to fill …

In the arms of an Angel fly away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here

CONNOR MICHAEL JOSEPH

This is Connor.

He’s my oldest grandson and also my godchild.

Today he has a birthday.

He’s Angelika’s brother.

This collage was created by an iPhone app called “Timehop”.

We celebrated his birthday last year by taking him to dinner at “Outback“.

That’s the plan for tonight.

He wants to go there again.

Who can deny this “little man” his birthday wish?

Love, Mina

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

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!”

A few days ago I shared a post about Ellen’s birthday.

The actual date is January 26, 1958.

I wanted to share a video of the celebration on her show for this day but it seems it wasn’t posted until last night.

I found it!!

Watch why Ellen is so beloved by so many people, including me.

She has a heart of gold, a kind nature, her sense of humor is infectious.

Did you know that Ellen even has one of those National Days, like National Pecan Pie Day or National Hug Day?

That’s right: January 26 — which is also DeGeneres’ birthday — has been declared National Ellen DeGeneres Day.

Here’s to Ellen and why!
