HONORING PUERTO RICO

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.

Yesterday, I visited my tattoo artist.

I had an idea in my mind but Stacy showed me her idea and this is what she came up with.

I instantly fell in love with this image.

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 the hurricane. 

There are still some details and colors to be added to the artwork.

I wanted to share this with you today.

 More will follow when completed.

Tencha, you rock!

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

💟 💟 💟

Comes to mind the last part of “En La Brecha“, de José de Diego.

Jeannette P.

My Facebook friend saw the image and commented as noted above.

I asked her about “En La Brecha” and here it is.

Jose

~En La Brecha~
Poema

José de Diego
¡Ah desgraciado si el dolor te abate,
si el cansancio tus miembros entumece!
Haz como el árbol seco: reverdece
y como el germen enterrado: late.

Resurge, alienta, grita, anda, combate,
vibra, ondula, retruena, resplandece …
Haz como el río con la lluvia: ¡Crece!
Y como el mar contra la roca: ¡Bate!

De la tormenta al iracundo empuje,
no has de balar, como el cordero triste,
sino rugir, como la fiera ruge.

¡Levántate!, ¡Revuélvete!, ¡Resiste!
Haz como el toro acorralado: ¡Muge!
O como el toro que no muge: ¡Embiste!

‘Sound Of Silence’ Begins To Play …. “🇫🇷 French figure skaters Vanessa James and Morgan Cipres 🇫🇷 …. “!!


France

~~January 22, 2018~~ 

FIGURE SKATING AT ITS BEST

… because we need beautiful, inspiring things in our lives.

Enjoy their performance. It’s beyond inspiring, soothing and amazing!

I love their song choice!

GoldSwirl

When French figure skaters Vanessa James and Morgan Cipres teamed up to vie for first place in the International Skating Union’s World Team Trophy 2017 competition in Japan, they blew away the competition and left fans marveling at their routine.

The duo have developed a bond on the ice that allows Vanessa to completely trust Morgan when he is flipping and spinning her around. The two are able to incorporate amazing partner work in their routines because of this.

For the competition in Japan, they skated to Disturbed’s rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s classic hit “The Sound of Silence.” Their synchronized skating and perfectly performed stunts matched magically to the music.

The mellow, almost eerie song coupled with their all black costumes lend a melancholy feel to what actually is a vibrant and stunning ice skating routine.

Their initial spinning jump is executed perfectly in tandem.

THEIR TIME IS UP

MAGNIFICENCE!! 

 ~Annual Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement~

I’ve always admired her. I followed her when she had her TV show. Her movies, her OWN Network.

So deserving of this award.

Listen and watch the introduction and her powerful speech.

The video speaks for itself.

~Full Transcript of Oprah’s Inspirational Golden Globes Speech~

Oprah Winfrey was the recipient of the Golden Globes‘ annual Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement, and gave a powerful acceptance speech during Sunday night’s ceremony. She was introduced by Reese Witherspoon, who compared their time together on the set of A Wrinkle in Time to a master class at Harvard Business School and a spiritual retreat all in one.

“Oprah’s hugs could end wars, solve world peace,” Witherspoon joked.

Once Winfrey took the stage, she delivered an inspirational, uplifting speech which discussed race and gender and the fight for equality. She also told the story of Recy Taylor, a woman who fought for justice in the Jim Crow era after she was raped.

“For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men,” Winfrey said, bringing the audience to its feet.

“But their time is up.

Their time is up.”

WordPress Update …. “🧐 We’re Updating our Privacy Policy 🧐 …. “!!

QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS

ASKING FOR YOUR INPUT AND THOUGHTS 

Several weeks ago, I received an email from WordPress announcing to the fact that they are updating their privacy policies.

I guess I was living my life when a blogger friend mentioned something about this. This friend was concerned and was even considering closing her website.

Ah! This made me take notice and look at the email itself in more detail. I must say I’m not too good in this department, hence I would like to post this and request thoughts from any other blogger friends who may stop here and help me in this quandary.

Should I simply accept their new policy or should I also consider closing my ‘spot’?

I thank, in advance, anyone who may feel inclined to help this fellow blogger along.

Here’s the info …

Carmen Yulín Cruz …. “🇵🇷 Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 …. and Stephen Colbert …. AWESOME!!

CARMEN YULIN CRUZ

~VISITS STEPHEN COLBERT~

I didn’t know anything about this woman before Hurricane María battered my country, Puerto Rico

The first images I saw from my country, after the hurricane, showed her working, wading through flood waters, calling on her constituents. Since then, I’ve heard people disparage her real intent. Yet, to me, she has been to voice for my country. She keeps the spotlight on the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico. Will she benefit from this?

I don’t know and I don’t care … as long as Puerto Rico’s crisis remains in the forefront rather than a back burner.

~VISITS STEPHEN COLBERT~

It’s been two months since Hurricane María all but destroyed much of Puerto Rico. And it’s been more than a month or so since most late-night comics ran out of material about Drumpf blaming these American citizens for their own misfortune, whipping paper towels at them like he was trying to win a stuffed animal at the fair, and his administration awarding a sweetheart deal to a tiny energy firm with no experience and two full-time employees that just so happened to be from the hometown of Drumpf’s Interior Secretary and financed by a major Drumpf donor to fix the island’s power grid.

Stephen Colbert took some time on Wednesday’s Late Show, November 29, to let San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz both thank the American people for their continued help and goodwill in the disaster’s aftermath, and to use her time there to continue her criticism of Trump’s characteristic lack of both.

~~Trump’s Tax Bill Will Hurt Puerto Rico~~

Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz

~~Published on Nov 30, 2017~~

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz explains how Puerto Rico could be negatively impacted by Trump’s proposed tax plan.

GoldSwirl

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” inducted San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz into its “Trump Attacked Me On Twitter” Hall of Fame on Wednesday night, November 29,
Cruz was bestowed the honor following her feud with President Donald Trump, which began when she criticized the federal response to Hurricane Maria’s destruction in Puerto Rico.
In accepting the award, Cruz continued with her criticism of Trump.

She called him a “bully” and mocked his almost daily Twitter meltdowns.
“That gentleman that took the Twitter account for 11 minutes should be nominated to the Nobel Peace Prize,” said Cruz.

“I hope he’s a better golf player than he is a president, because he surely isn’t a good president,” she added.

Cruz noted that being attacked by the president was “a badge of courage” because it meant she was “different to him” and actually cared about people.

‘What About Us? …. “🌸🎼🌸  P!nk’s new Captivating, Mesmerizing Video …. The Song for The Times 🌸🎼🌸 …. “!!

WHAT ABOUT US?

I’ve heard this song playing on the radio.

It was’t until last night’s VMA Awards and today that I went searching for the video. P!nk has always had serious, impacting messages to share in her songs.

This is another example at a time when it’s most needed.

A protest song!

GoldSwirl

What About Us” is a song by American singer and songwriter Pink. It was written by P!nk, Steve Mac and Johnny McDaid, with production handled by Mac. The song was released through RCA Records on August 10, 2017, as the lead single from P!nk’s upcoming seventh studio album, Beautiful Trauma (2017).

“What About Us” is described as an emotional club ballad and dance floor anthem with pounding drums and an array of synthesizers. The song has also been described as a protest song.
