Te quiero

Tus manos son mi caricia
mis acordes cotidianos
te quiero porque tus manos
trabajan por la justicia

si te quiero es porque sos
mi amor mi cómplice y todo
y en la calle codo a codo
somos mucho más que dos

tus ojos son mi conjuro
contra la mala jornada
te quiero por tu mirada
que mira y siembra futuro

tu boca que es tuya y mía
tu boca no se equivoca
te quiero porque tu boca
sabe gritar rebeldía

si te quiero es porque sos
mi amor mi cómplice y todo
y en la calle codo a codo
somos mucho más que dos

y por tu rostro sincero
y tu paso vagabundo
y tu llanto por el mundo
porque sos pueblo te quiero

y porque amor no es aureola
ni cándida moraleja
y porque somos pareja
que sabe que no está sola

te quiero en mi paraíso
es decir que en mi país
la gente viva feliz
aunque no tenga permiso

si te quiero es porque sos
mi amor mi cómplice y todo
y en la calle codo a codo
somos mucho más que dos.

-Mario Benedetti

My World of Words

As 2014 sets in and we all adjust to writing the proper year on our pages, I have decided to reapply myself to my world of words. My thoughts have been wailing to be let out since before I left Madrid, and as a resolution they shall venture back out onto type and print. In order to get the flow started, I have been contemplating what to do with my current blog platform. Here are my thoughts/options:

  1.  Start a new blog from scratch
  2. Rename this blog with an updated title that reflects my current whereabouts in the world
  3. Keep my blog as it is and let it grow 

I still have yet to decide…thoughts?

You are the author of your own story…trust and believe.

The simplicity and beauty of dance.

Not your average bullying video.

One of the best bullying videos I’ve ever seen. PLUS one of the best spoken word pieces I’ve heard.

This is just the best in so many ways.

Feliz Cumple to Mom! <3

To MY mommy!

You forever love and give,

And make life so pleasant to live.

Through all the coffees and chats,

Lessons, laughs, and emotions have sat.

Teaching me to always thrive,

My life is now in full drive.

With warm virtual hugs I wish to give,

I want you to venture and begin to relive.

That nothing but the best will do,

And that is what I truly wish for you!

!Feliz cumpleaños!
