More 80’s Sitcoms

In this blog entry  I wrote about my favorite 80’s sitcoms.  If there is one thing  the 80’s decade had was great TV shows, especially comedies. Among other favorites are; Growing Pains, Murphy Brown, Perfect Strangers, Who’s the Boss, The Facts of Life, Kate & Allie, Empty Nest, Punky Brewster and  and Full House.  

Mario Benedetti – Arco Iris

m-benedetti

A veces

por supuesto
usted sonríe
y no importa lo linda
o lo fea
lo vieja
o lo joven
lo mucho
o lo poco
que usted realmente
sea

sonríe
cual si fuese
una revelación
y su sonrisa anula
todas las anteriores
caducan al instante
sus rostros como máscaras
sus ojos duros
frágiles
como espejos en óvalo
su boca de morder
su mentón de capricho
sus pómulos fragantes
sus párpados
su miedo

sonríe
y usted nace
asume el mundo
mira
sin mirar
indefensa
desnuda
transparente

y a lo mejor
si la sonrisa viene
de muy
de muy adentro
usted puede llorar
sencillamente
sin desgarrarse
sin deseperarse
sin convocar la muerte
ni sentirse vacía

llorar
sólo llorar

entonces su sonrisa
si todavia existe
se vuelve un arco iris.

Vindictive Neighbors

I never post  personal things but in this case I must get this off my chest before I explode. I have had the WORST neighbors since December  of 2014.  Not only are they loud and obnoxious but also feel the need to bother us whenever we go to sleep. This has been going on for over a year and last week I had just about enough of this abusive and repetitive behaviour. I filed a complaint for disturbance of the peace past 11 PM and not surprising they have began to bully us by calling us crazy and talking about our personal lives for anyone to hear. Things are so bad with these people that once the lease is up we are getting the Hell out of here and  Hope to NEVER see these Toxic Vermin again.  Nonetheless, the time we have left in this forsaken place we want a little peace at least when it’s time for bed.  If things don’t change we plan to leave before time. I don’t give a Crap if they feel they are getting away with their motive (bother us so we move out or literally go crazy) let them rot in their own putrid existence for all I care. We deserve a better life and we will find it once again. This Hell has to end!! We are good people and like any other human being deserve to sleep in peace at night.

 

Extremism & Radicalism

Everyone is now concentrating on Islamic extremism but nothing is said  about Christian Radicalism/Extremism.  Nothing is said how the Evangelical movement  for decades has been driving this country on a downward spiral with its preaching of intolerance and hatred. Is it any wonder the younger generations are so turned off by organized religion and politicians?! I am HUGELY frustrated about how this country seems to be more divided than ever. I am Sick and Tired of these Fake people ( if they can even be called people) hiding behind a veil of Christian Hypocrisy in order to judge, criticize and condemn anyone as  devil worshippers simply because they don’t follow their ludicrous beliefs. No wonder Agnosticism and Atheism are growing worldwide. Loads of people around the world, myself included, are Tired of the Intolerance and the Hypocrisy. Enough of this!!

She Walks in Beauty – Lord Byron

beauty
She walks in beauty, like the night
   Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
   Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
   Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

 

One shade the more, one ray the less,
   Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
   Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
   How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

 

And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
   So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
   But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
   A heart whose love is innocent!
