William Shakespeare – Love Sonnet XVIII (18)


Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.


Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Uno de mis escritores latinoamericanos favoritos he leído casi todos sus libros y mis favoritos son ; El Amor en los Tiempos del Cólera,  Del Amor y Otros Demonios, Vivir Para Contarla y 100 Años de Soledad.  He aquí algunas de sus mejores frases. Que faltan hacen escritores de la talla de Garcia Marquez y Mario Benedetti.


Vientos de Agua

Sublime mini teleserie creada por el talentoso director argentino Juan José Campanella. Majestuosamente actuada por un reparto de primera que incluye; Héctor Alterio, Ernesto Alterio, Eduardo Blanco, Pablo Rago y Guilia Michellini. Trata sobre la llegada de unos inmigrantes a la Argentina en  la década de los 30. Una serie sublime y una de las mejores que he visto en mi vida. También tiene una banda sonora de alta calidad compuesta por el compositor Argentino Emilio Kauderer. Demasiada programación chatarra hoy dia en la television y tambien por internet. Hace mucha falta programas y teleseries que tengan un alto contenido y sean menos vacíos y superficiales.

Rio Olympics 2016

The last olympics I saw were the Olympics of 1992 held in Barcelona, Spain and I was just  a kid back then.  I saw this news piece on CBS Morning News that really put into perspective the Useless waste of money for an event that only last 17 days. Brazil is going through the worst recession in the last 25 years and according to a poll 67% of Brazilians think hosting the Olympics is a terrible idea.  They cut funds for Health and Education in order to build the oversize stadiums that most likely will be left to rot after the Olympics are over. Wasting (that is the proper word not spending) such exorbitant amounts of money, especially in a country in economic crisis is a not a good idea from my point of view.
