Recordando A Violeta Parra En Sus 100 años

October 4, 2017

El 4 de Octubre en Chile se celebra El Dia De La Musica Chilena. Es en honor para conmemorar el nacimiento de la gran Chilena, Violeta Parra. Hoy, fue un dia muy especial para todos que aprecian la musica de Violeta Parra. Hoy se estaba festejando los 100 años de nuestra querida Violeta.

La Musica de Violeta me ha inspirado e impactado en varias formas. Tambien me inspiro en escribir un poema que lo escribi como una oracion. Aqui se los comparto.

Oracion a Violeta Parra

Violeta Parra,

Madre del Folclor Chileno,

servidora de los mas marginados,

amiga de los Mapuches,

damos gracias a nuestro Dios

por tu luz que ilumina nuestro camino.

 

Tu fuiste la que rescataste nuestra cultura folclorica

y la actualizaste para conectar a tu pueblo con su canto.

Tu supiste usar tu guitarra y servir a tu querido Chile.

Tu construiste la nueva cancion Chilena con amor

y le diste alas para viajar por todo el mundo

Como folclorista,

nos llamas a estar siempre al lado de la justicia,

comprometernos con los procesos sociales,

Y vivir nuestras vidas con un sentimiento solidario.

Tu nos inspiras con tus cantos, pinturas, decimas y sentido de humor.

Nos muestras que para ser feliz tenemos que amar y servir a los mas necesitados.

Danos la fortaleza de ser autenticos con nuestros dones

y vivir nuestras vidas para el bien de la humanidad.

Haz que el egoismo y la embidia no sea un cancer en nuestro camino

y que tengamos la fuerza de sobrasalir los obstaculos en nuestras vidas.

Violeta Parra,

Hija de Latinoamerica Unida

Compañera de los pobres

ruega por todos nosotros.

Amen.

 

Los dejo con unas canciones que me han impactado.

Here is one of my favorite quotes by Fela.

Is Yu Darvish The Answer To Dodgers’ October Blues?

July 31, 2017

The Dodgers pulled the biggest coup d’etat in today’s MLB trading deadline by landing Yu Darvish for 3 prospects with Willie Calhoun being the biggest piece being sent to the Rangers.

This trade almost never happen but somehow it came together in the final minutes before the deadline.

The addition of Darvish only strengthens the Dodgers rotation who have been doing an amazing job this year. That along with the Dodgers’ bullpen who have stepped up big time and just added two great lefty relievers from the Pirates and Reds.

The Dodgers achilles heel in October has been pitching and this year the Dodgers became aggresive and went out to make it better.

With the Dodgers being owners of the best record in MLB, it is safe to speculate now that without the Dodgers going to the World Series, this whole year will be a huge disappointment. Dodgers haven’t gone to the World Series since 1988 and 29 years after are in a position to make it happen. Could Yu Darvish be the answer that will put the Dodgers into the World Series? Could Darvish and Kershaw team up to end the Dodgers World Series drought? Having the best record in Baseball doesn’t mean anything if you can win 11 games in October. 

We shall see how the postseason turns out but for now the Dodgers have put themselves in position to go to the World Series for the 1st time since 1988. Let’s hope they get the same results of 1988.

We are all wounded healers

The main question is not, ‘How can we hide our wounds?’ so we don’t have to be embarrased, but ‘How can we hide our wounds?’
