MADAME CHOCOLAT

It’s with a heavy heart and a sorrowed soul that I want to inform all my friends and family know that Mama G passed away. My heart aches and my soul cannot understand why mom left me so soon.

I will miss you a lot Mama!

Go and meet Mamita, Alain, Papa Julio and all your friends that had passed before you!

In Memoriam a Ms. Georgina Duprey
‘Hay personas que pasan por la vida, haciendo el bien, sin mirar a quien. Siembran bondad, sabiduría, consuelo, alegria. Dedican su vida a ese servicio, escogiendo una profesión dedicada a guiar y ser solidario en el dolor, resolviendo y buscando soluciones a problemas sociales y burocráticos. Calladamente, ponen su granito de arena para hacer de este mundo uno mejor y menos oscuro.
Anoche nació a su nueva vida espiritual Ms. Georgina Duprey. Una nueva estrella en el firmamento, un nuevo Ser de Luz, una nueva fuerza positiva.

Hasta siempre, Madam Chocolat, gracias por los recuerdos, consejos, buenos momentos.

Vuela alto … fly high!!

I met this extraordinary woman in 1985 when I began my career with the Veterans Administration in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico.

There are no words to express the feeling of loss of such an incredible woman.

You saw her coming down the hallway, in her bright attire, with a smile that went from ear to ear.

Her hearty laugh was music to our ears.

Her kind heart, her incredible dedication, her amazing sense of humor are but a few of the qualities she has.

Her Three Kings Day celebration was unique!

Madame Chocolat … the African Queen

… the loss is too huge to measure!

Fly away!

We are ALL connected through LOVE

‘In the arms of an Angel far 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
In the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here … “

Basic Taj Mahal Historical Facts and Pictures

Taj Mahal, the iconic white marble mausoleum and one of the most photographed historical monuments in the world, is located in the city of Agra in Uttar Pradesh, India. Mughal emperor Shah Jahan promised Mumtaz Mahal, his third wife and soul mate, that he would build a magnificent monument for her and Taj Mahal was the result, still bearing the mark of their true love.

The construction of Taj Mahal, literally meaning the “crown of palaces”, began around the year 1632 and completed in around 1653.

Ustad Ahmad Lahauri, the renowned architect of the Mughal Empire is considered the principal designer while the whole project was handled by an architectural board, comprising of the likes of Abd ul-Karim Ma’mur Khan and Makramat Khanunder, under imperial supervision.

I have been a huge fan of Yanni’s work and music. I started following him since his first appearance with Linda Evans on the Oprah TV show. It was love at first sight.

I have followed his career since then and have been able to see him perform live several times. 

I was looking for a video to use in the last post of the day and ran into Yanni performing at the Taj Mahal. I selected the video presented here mainly because of the introduction given by him.

~~ALBUM: TRIBUTE~~

Tribute pays musical homage to India on several songs; Greek-born composer and keyboardist Yanni describes the album as a tribute to the builders of the Taj and the Forbidden City, as well as to the people of India and China. Yanni’s ethereal keyboard work is backed by orchestra, vocalists, a choir, and various world instruments including didgeridoo, duduk, charango, and bamboo saxophone.

~~Some Interesting Facts About Yanni’s India Tour in 1997~~

Yanni performed live for three consecutive nights from 20 to 22 March 1997 at India’s iconic monument Taj Mahal located at the heart of the city of Agra (State -Uttar Pradesh).
The spectacular concerts which were staged at the back-side of the monument Taj Mahal on the bank of the river Yamuna took almost two years of meticulous planning and painstaking efforts by Yanni and his team.

Yanni became the First Western Artist to be permitted to perform at the Taj Mahal.
The event also marked the artificial illumination of the Taj Mahal during night for the first time in history.

Yanni’s team comprising of almost 300 members successfully accomplished the task of building a stage and seating arrangement in the middle of the river Yamuna on a sandbar that periodically became visible when the river dried up between November and late March.

Indian Army’s help was sought to build two pontoon bridges to get across the river and also for building the roads leading to the pontoon bridges. The bridges were built in record time.

Almost 130 tons of video and audio equipment were imported from United Kingdom brought in around 50 trucks and a plane.

Taj5

Four towers were built with some of them over 60 feet high for housing the lighting equipment.

A stage was also built spanning 100 feet to 80 feet, 6 feet high and tiered to hold the orchestra and the band.

Seating was created for 7200 people.

Yanni also flew in the revolutionary V-DOSC sound system that cancelled the sound reflecting from the rear of the speaker cabinets completely. During the concerts the sound reaching the Taj Mahal was as low as two people talking.

Apart from adhering to strict sound emission and lighting norms, no motorized vehicles were brought in upto 500 meters of the monument.

Yanni wrote the songs “Deliverance” and “Love is All” specifically for the Taj Mahal.

Yanni says: “This album was conceived and recorded during a tumultuous and wonderful period in my life. It was inspired, in part, by the possibility that I might perform new works at Taj Mahal and the Forbidden City, two of the greatest man-made structures on earth. That this came to be, that I had the privilege of performing my music in India and China in the midst of national treasures, is a tribute to so many who believed in project that seemed always at the edge of reason.

For me, the Taj and the Forbidden City remain essential because they remind us all of our own potential for greatness. The spirit of their builders remains incredibly vibrant. For the members of my band and the orchestra, the nights spent in the shadows of these monuments provoked inspired work and often, tears. I hope, in a small way, we have been able to pay tribute to those many souls, many years ago, the nameless artisans, and laborers, who created these incredible structures.

This album is also meant to be a tribute to the dynamic, warm India and China, to the many, many people who embraced us with their kindness, smiles and applause. Finally, like all I’ve done since leaving, Kalamata, Greece, this is also a tribute to my parents, Sotiris and Felitsa, who taught their little boy a long time ago that …. love is all

~~Love Is All~~

~~Uploaded on Sep 15, 2007~~

This a magnificent song especially written for the Taj Mahal by Yanni. This is in fact his very first song with lyrics. Solos are by Pedro Eustace on the ancient Armenian Duduk, Ramon Stagnaro on the guitar, and voice by Vann Johnson.

“As the population increases, the planet becomes smaller and smaller. We need to learn to accept and tolerate one another. I am a human being just like all. There is more than one way to live life. Socrates once said: The perfect human being is all human beings put together. As a collective, as a “we”. All of us together make perfection.

Sending a message to all the world of love and unity, acceptance and tolerance.

~~PARTIAL LYRICS~~

“Love will keep me believing
Through the dark, can you hear me calling?
Holding on when I’m dreaming
Love is all, love is all, love is all

Like a tempest to the sea, I’m standin’
Love is all, love is all, love is all
Love is all, love is all, love is all
Like a tempest to the sea
I’m standin’, I’m standin’ [Incomprehensible]
Love, love, love , love is all

Love is all …. “

A PRAYER TONIGHT

I normally don’t write posts related to the Lord.

It is my personal belief that there are as many concepts of Him as there are people in the world.

Religion and Spirituality are not the same.

What is important to me is what is inside.

However, these recent days have been trying.

We need some comfort and support.

Go inside.

The answers are there.

They have always been.

Here’s a balm for the soul!

When I despair

I remember that all through history

The ways of truth and love have always won.

There have been tyrants and murderers

And for a time they can seem invincible

but in the end they always fall.

Think of it … always.

~Mahatma Gandhi~

Spirit

A religion is an organized collection of beliefs, cultural systems, and world views that relate humanity to an order of existence. Many religions have narratives, symbols, and sacred histories that are intended to explain the meaning of life and/or to explain the origin of life or the Universe. From their beliefs about the cosmos and human nature, people derive morality, ethics, religious laws or a preferred lifestyle.

According to some estimates, there are roughly 4,200 religions in the world.

May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May the Lord make his face to shine upon you,
and be gracious to you.
May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
and give you peace. 

God’s peace (“Shalom“) is not essentially about “quiet” or the absence of noise, but about the gift of wholeness, health and well-being.

What is love?

There are so many answers to this question. As many as there are people who think that they are in love. As many as those who have a stable significant other. 

Many of us who are in our “golden years” may feel this way.

I have some friends who actually introduced P!nk to me. Because of them, I watched one of her concerts on DVD and went to her most recent live concert. She captivated me. Her musical ability and her personna, while performing is enchanting.

The graphic above, which resonates so much with me, brought to mind the following song. The lyrics, though a bit strong, taken in a humorous light, explain a lot of life’s reality.

At least, my reality …. sometimes. And I’m sure it works both ways in my relationship.

“True Love”
(feat. Lily Rose Cooper)

Sometimes I hate every single stupid word you say
Sometimes I wanna slap you in your whole face
There’s no one quite like you
You push all my buttons down
I know life would suck without you

At the same time, I wanna hug you
I wanna wrap my hands around your neck
You’re an asshole but I love you
And you make me so mad I ask myself
Why I’m still here, or where could I go
You’re the only love I’ve ever known
But I hate you, I really hate you,
So much, I think it must be

P2

True love, true love
It must be true love
Nothing else can break my heart like
True love, true love,
It must be true love
No one else can break my heart like you

Just once try to wrap your little brain around my feelings
Just once please try not to be so mean
Repeat after me now R-O-M-A-N-C-E-E-E
Come on I’ll say it slowly (Romance)
You can do it baby

At the same time, I wanna hug you
I wanna wrap my hands around your neck
You’re an asshole but I love you
And you make me so mad I ask myself
Why I’m still here, or where could I go
You’re the only love I’ve ever known
But I hate you, I really hate you,
So much, I think it must be

P4

True love, true love
It must be true love
Nothing else can break my heart like
True love, true love,
It must be true love
And no one else can break my heart like you

(I love you, I think it must be love, I love you)

Why do you rub me up the wrong way?
Why do you say the things that you say?
Sometimes I wonder how we ever came to be
But without you I’m incomplete

P3

I think it must be
True love, true love
It must be true love
Nothing else can break my heart like
True love, true love,
It must be true love
And no one else can break my heart like you (like you)
No one else can break my heart like you (like you)
No one else can break my heart like you
