Float to Live — Swimmer’s Daily

Everyone who falls into cold water unexpectedly wants to follow the same instinct: to swim hard and fight the water. But when you fight it, the chances are, you’ll lose. Instead you need to stay calm and #FloatToLive.

Yes, I’m busy teaching people how to swim and save their lives every day, especially in the summer!

28 Years Older

La Fortaleza (The Governer of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rosselló) tweeted this info today:

Currently Puerto Rico has a generation system that is 28 years older than the average in the electric power industry in the United States.

And that is the newly replaced system!!!!!

Mafalda y su sopa

Commememucho

Amo a Mafalda y lo que representa. Este es mi pequeño homenaje a esta pequeña niña que odia la sopa y que su postre preferido son los Panqueques.

Mafalda llegó a nuestras vidas el 29 de septiembre en el año 1964 en Argentina, de la mano del humorista gráfico Quino. Recuerdo perfectamente la fecha porque mi hermano Miguel había nacido ese mismo día 5 años antes.

Mafalda era, y sigue siendo, una niña curiosa e irónica. Mafalda es una rebelde. Es contestataria, con una cabeza despejada y propensa a filosofar a partir de cualquier hecho cotidiano. Es idealista y quiere hacer de este mundo un mundo mejor. Le gustaría estudiar idiomas y trabajar de intérprete en la ONU para contribuir a la paz mundial. Mafalda es una defensora del progreso social de la Mujer y lo preconiza a ultranza, algo muy adelantado a la época de su nacimiento.

One True Thing

IMG_6436.jpg

One True Thing

tell me one true thing

demanding without fear

without petulance

just one    between us

what is true

escapes the moment

yet I see my words

spelled out a contrail

in the summer sky

one thing in our world

you laugh predictably

touch your fingertips to your ear

as if I’m silent

noon day heat

light breezes toss my words

beyond you sidestep

the contrails fade

my words hang

hotter than any sun

glaring    yes one true thing

don’t whisper I love you

don’t whisper always

forever is not true

so breakable ephemeral

lies spiral up

you want to say

yes but no but

I can’t    you can’t

say anything can you

truth catches in your throat

while all around us

the truth of nature smiles

bite it if you dare

swallow the world entire

you will never hold it

within you    I know

one true thing

you can’t tell me

anything
