WHEN WE RISE 

Whoever you are, you are not alone

How I wish I’d heard those words as I was coming up in my life.

I lived through this alone.

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, far away from this struggle.

I struggled on my own until I discovered that I wasn’t the only one who was different.

I discovered others like me.

The process was long and prolonged. There was no internet then. The books that were available were few and difficult to come by.

Yet, I totally identify with the struggle.

That’s why we are not standing down now after the advances made since then.

I thank all of those who came before me.

I refuse to go back into the closet.

~A Love Letter to LGBT Activism~

When We Rise” was written and created by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.

This mini-series event chronicles the real-life personal and political struggles, set-backs and triumphs of a diverse family of LGBT men and women who helped pioneer one of the last legs of the U.S. Civil Rights movement, from its turbulent infancy in the 20th century to the once unfathomable successes of today.

~Cleve Jones landed in San Francisco too late for the Summer of Love~

Fifty years ago, about 100,000 young people from around the country converged on San Francisco.

They were flower children and hippies, queers and artists, radicals and draft dodgers. A generation of freethinkers looked to the city for change, with resistance, liberation, and free expression unfurling in every corner.

Because of them, the city gave rise to movements in support of the rights of women, African-Americans, gays, farm workers, Native Americans, animals, and even the planet.

Change was everywhere.

ABC’s groundbreaking miniseries When We Rise introduces us to the lives, loves, and struggles of these activists, covering a 40-year span in the long battle for LGBT equality.

Thoughts for today, #469 …. “Nice try, Drumpf … Not True …. Alternate Facts …. “!!

CLAIMS HE INHERITED A MESS

Words evade me!

The degree to which this ‘so-called president’ will dare stoop to.

Yet, I’m not surprised he goes so low.

I’m not surprised about his constant lying and his spewing forth of alternate facts. 

The more he does, I’m hoping, the more people will a functional brain will see him for who he really is.

I have no hope for is hard-core followers.

However, keep in mind, the more he continues down this road, the more will reach the tipping point of:

“I’ve had enough!”

I will miss you a lot Mama!

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 … “

Two Years Anniversary …. “A dream come true …. it’s still legal …. “!!

WHO WOULD’VE THOUGHT?

Getting our marriage license!!
This is how our day began, early morning, 2 years ago!

Yet our story began 38 years ago when we met in college!

We met and it was as if we’d known each other forever. Life got in the way and each went along different life paths. Yet, life brought us together again in 1996. Together, inseparable since. Two years ago, our union was legalized! ‘Til death do us part’ .. are the words that rule our lives.
Happy anniversary, my love!!

❤❤

A lifetime of memories …

… for the rest of our lives on this earth!

BEAUTIFUL LAND OF DREAMS

“I believe in everything until it’s disproved.

So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons.

It all exists, even if it’s in your mind.

Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?”

ALESSIA CARA

I was waiting for MOANA to come out.

From the previews I’d seen, I knew it was a ‘must see’ movie.

So far, I’ve seen it twice with the grand-kids.

For lighthearted fun, for an amazing animated quality production and for amazing music, this is a ‘must see’ movie.

Enjoy!

~How Far I’ll Go~

Alessia Caracciolo (born July 11, 1996), professionally known as Alessia Cara, is a Canadian singer and songwriter. She is signed to EP Entertainment and Def Jam Recordings and is best known for “Here“, her debut single from the debut studio album, Know-It-All, released November 13, 2015.

~~Wikipedia~~ 

goldswirl

Disney released the music video for “How Far I’ll Go” from animated film “Moana” on Thursday, November 3, sung by Canadian singer Alessia Cara.

The video features the sweet-faced singer and songwriter singing on a beach, between shots of her walking alongside the water to closeups of her face as the wind blows through her hair.

All the while, she sings, “See the line where the sky meets the sea?/It calls me/And no one knows how far it goes/If the wind on my sail on the sea stays behind me/One day I’ll know, if I go there’s just no telling how far I’ll go …”

How Far I’ll Go” was written by “Hamilton” creator and Tony Award-winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote all the film’s songs alongside Mark Mancina.

SUNFLOWER

Sunflowers always brighten my day.

Need some brightening today.

Imagine a flower in the morning. The flower is not yet open. The sunshine embraces the flower, and the energy of the sunshine begins to penetrate the flower.

The sun doesn’t just go around the flower. The light naturally penetrates the flower, and an hour later the flower has to open itself to the sun.

The sun is our mindfulness, embracing the flower of our feelings.

LOVE TWO 

“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image.

Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”
