FRENCH ANNOYINGLY RETAIN RIGHT TO CLAIM INTELLECTUAL SUPERIORITY OVER AMERICANS

Macron wins French presidency by decisive margin over Le Pen

As the news started coming in through social media, I felt an immense sense of relief.

It was a worldwide sigh which created a ripple effect as the French rejected fear, xenophobia, racism, populism, nationalism, isolation and the politics of the far right in a landslide.

Emmanuel Macron will be France’s next president!

His victory was hailed by his supporters as holding back a tide of populism after the Brexit vote and Donald Trump’s victory in the US election.

On Sunday, May 7, the people of France annoyingly retained their traditional right to claim intellectual superiority over Americans, as millions of French citizens paused to enjoy just how much smarter they were than their allies across the Atlantic.

In bars and cafés across France, voters breathed a sigh of relief in the knowledge that arrogantly comparing themselves to the U.S. population, a longtime favorite pastime of the French people, would remain viable for the foreseeable future.

CONFEDERATE FLAG

The “Confederate flag,” as it is colloquially referred to, was the flag used in battle by the Army of Northern Virginia during the Civil War.

The actual flag of the Confederate States of America featured red and white stripes offset by a blue canton (a term that usually describes a rectangular block in the upper-left corner of a flag) and white stars. The battle flag came into use in 1861, when Confederate Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard complained that the flag of the Confederacy appeared too similar to the American flag on the battlefield.

The battle flag, designed by secessionist William Porcher Miles, was incorporated into the second design of the Confederate flag and was also adopted as the Navy Jack, in 1863. The design remained a part of the Confederate flag until the fall of the Confederacy in 1865.

The origins and symbolism of the flag are the subject of heated debate.

The flag has long been divisive.

Descendants of Confederate soldiers who served in the Civil War argue that the flag is an emblem of their heritage. Others say it carries an insignia that is inextricably linked to racism and hate, especially since it has been adopted by many neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups.

HUGE LOSS 

Céline promised her husband she’d be there for him to ‘die in my arms.’

I have been an ardent fan of Celine Dion since her crossover into the American music scene. I remember her first album in English … “Unison“, released in 1990.

“Where does my heart beat now?”

It’s all history after that.

With time, I got to know her story. One aspect which amazed me most was the size of her main family. She was the youngest of 14 siblings!

Then came her fairy tale love story, her marriage, her growing family and her continued worldwide success.

Celine and her family have just suffered the loss of the patriarch of the family, her mentor, her manager, the maker of her career.

I can barely being to imagine her sense of loss.

This makes me sad.

I can only wish Celine, her children and her family, strength in this time of grief.

I will continue following her steps wherever she goes.

PUERTO RICANS 

“Our skins are different.

We have many colors.

We are all Puerto Rican (Borinqueños).

(translated)

GoldSwirl

Puerto Ricans (Spanish: Puertorriqueños; Taíno: boricua) are the inhabitants or citizens of Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is a multi-ethnic nation, home to people of different ethnic and national backgrounds. As a result, some Puerto Ricans do not treat their nationality as an ethnicity but as a citizenship with various ethnicities and national origins comprising the “Puerto Rican people“.

Despite its multi-ethnic composition, the culture held in common by most Puerto Ricans is referred to as mainstream Puerto Rican culture, a Western culture largely derived from the traditions of Western European migrants, beginning with the early Spanish settlers, along with other Europeans arriving later such as the Corsicans, Irish, Germans and French, along with a strong West African culture which has been influential.

Puerto Ricans commonly refer to themselves as boricuas. “The majority of Puerto Ricans regard themselves as being of mixed Spanish-European descent. Recent DNA sample studies have concluded that the three largest components of the Puerto Rican genetic profile are in fact indigenous Taíno, European, and African”.

THE GARDEN OF EDEN

The Garden of Eden is described in Genesis, Chapters 2 and 3. The Lord created the Garden specifically for Adam, the first man, whom God had formed.

In Genesis 2:8-9, we read:

“The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed. And out of the ground the LORD God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food.”

Some believe the Garden was atop a mountain, or perhaps it was an outlet for freshwater springs, because we read, “a river went out of Eden to water the garden, and from there it parted and became four river heads” (Genesis 2:10).

To start the day …. Yanni’s Aria!!


  Y1

~~August 23, 2014~~

Today is a day where positive thoughts, bright light and healing energy are needed in this household. 

Music has always been a refuge and a comfort for me. It’s played a very important part in my life. Once again, I rely on music …. to make it through some rough spots.

This is a meaningful, triumphal, lyrical song that touches the heart and soothes the soul. There are a few versions of this song and they are all inspiring!

Msoul

Yanni’s “Aria” (from Yanni Live at the Acropoplis) is based on The Flower Duet, from the Léo Delibes opera Lakmé, and popularized by various British Airways TV commercials.

Lakmé is an opera in three acts by Léo Delibes to a French libretto by Edmond Gondinet and Philippe Gille, based on the 1880 novel Rarahu ou Le Mariage de Loti by Pierre Loti.

The subject of the opera was suggested by Gondinet as a vehicle for the American soprano Marie van Zandt. Delibes wrote the score during 1881-82. Like other French operas of the period, Lakmé captures the ambience of the Orient that was in vogue during the latter part of the nineteenth century; Bizet’s The Pearl Fishers and Massenet’s Le roi de Lahore being two other examples.

As noted above, this beautiful song was popularized by  various British Airways TV commercials.

Yanni Live at the Acropolis is the name of both an album and video by Greek composer Yanni, recorded live at the Herodes Atticus Theatre, Athens, Greece, on September 25, 1993, and released in 1994.

In a three-year television deal with PBS, the live television special was one of the top fundraising subjects for PBS, raising $13 million, with more than 750,000 home videos and more than 7 million albums sold worldwide. It has been seen in 65 countries by half a billion people, has almost continuously remained on the charts since its release, and is the second best-selling music video of all time.

This album peaked at #1 on “Billboard’sTop New Age Albums” chart and at #5 on the “Billboard 200” chart in the same year. The film received an Emmy nomination in 1994 for “Outstanding Individual Achievement in Lighting Direction (Electronic) for a Drama Series, Variety Series, Miniseries or a Special“. The corresponding concert tour of the year was “Yanni Live, The Symphony Concerts 1994“.

ARIA ” is loosely based upon a short, but beautiful part of the 19th century French opera, lakme, by Leo Delibes. Yanni has revived ARIA with a lot of passion in this wonderful super production in Acropolis. Watch it , you will never forget it!

~~LYRICS~~ 

Sous le dome epais
Ou le blanc jasmin
A la rose s’assemble
Sur la rive en fleurs
Riant au matin

Viens, descendons ensemble.
Doucement glissons
De son flot charmant
Suivons le courant
Fuyant, dans

L’onde fremissante
D’une main nonchalante
Viens, gagnons le bord
Ou la souree dort

Et l’oiseau
L’oiseau chante
Sous le dome epais
Sous le blanc jasmin
Ah, descendons ensemble
