Charlie and Lola. This is my favourite Discovery Kid's cartoon. It is about the relationship between two closed-age siblings: Charlie, the elder brother and her little sister Lola, a very imaginative and creative little girl.

At the beggining of every chapter Charlie says: "I have this little sister Lola, she is small and very funny" and then Lola starts a new adventure.

I like it not only because it is really funny but also because it reminds me of my own relationship with my elder brother Leo.

Leo and Euge could be the argentinian version of Charlie and Lola. Hahahah.

I am sure that everyone has his/her own version of the cartoon in his/her real life and I believe that siblings are one of the best inventions life.

Salvador Dali: "Woman at the window"


Why do people stick to the past?
Why do we want to live in the “old days”?
Why does the past seduce us more than the present or the future sometimes?
Why do we want to “back to the past” instead of looking forward?
Why are we so nostalgic?

According to Wikipedia, “Nostalgia” is a bittersweet feeling for the things of the past.
Is it true that every past time was better? Who knows? It might be better sometimes but…it might be worse sometimes, too.

Nostalgia is related with the past in an idealized way. Ideal, idealist, idyllic. This is the key word. It is said that nostalgia is like a grammar lesson: you find the present tense, but the past perfect. However, was the past really “perfect”?

We always want to come back to that people, place or time in which we felt happy. We forget every mistake, fault or error made in the past and we only keep the good memory. “Nothing is more responsible for the good old days than a bad memory” is a popular quote. However, we are nostalgic when we have the fear that there is no chance of its feeling coming back.

On the other hand, it’s true that we can’t have a better tomorrow if we are thinking about about the past all the time.

It’s no bad to be nostalgic providing that you never forget that “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery, but today is a GIFT”.

Better times will come if you attract them.

To learn English = To become a child again

Zev, my homestay father told me once that if I want to learn English I should read children’s books, I should watch children’s TV Shows and I should sing Children’s songs.

When you learn a different language you become a kid again. It ‘s like starting the kindergarten … everything is new, you need to start from the bottom. And you know what? It’s a fabulous sensation because it’s like you can recover your sense of wonder and you capacity to be astonished.

You discover a whole new world!

It’s wonderful to look at the world through the eyes of the children again.

I watched this movie today: "Little Foot in The Land before Time" :o)

Listen to the song: "Always there"

Enthusiasm, the inner fire...

Joan Miró: "Ladders Cross the Blue Sky in a Wheel of Fire"

Show the world what you love to do
Tell everybody what you really enjoy
Share what your passion is…

And people will see the enthusiasm that is in you.

Enthusiasm is an energy that makes you transcend in life.
With enthusiasm everything is possible.
Enthusiasm is you in action… is you in the pure state of creation…
Enthusiasm makes things happen.
It fulfills your soul of joy and happiness
It makes you go far, go beyond, arise, fly…
Enthusiasm is the gas you need to cope with life.
It pushes you to your goal
It enlightens you and enlightens everything is surrounded you

When you are enthusiastic you show your fire because enthusiasm twinkles from the deep of your eyes.

Benjamin Chee Chee

Benjamin Chee Chee is a famous canadian artist. He was born in Temagami, Ontario and he taught himself to draw and paint. He had a very sad childhooh because his father died when he was two months old and he lost track of his mother. One reason behind his drive for success as a painter was his ambition to be reunited with her.

He was a prominent member of the second generation of Woodland Indian painters, a native art movement that began in the early nineteen-sixties and has since become one of the important art schools in Canada.

Unlike many of his contemporaries, he painted in a style influenced by modern abstraction. While most of the young Woodland Indian artists were content to follow the style of the movement's founder, Norval Morrisseau, in depicting myths and legends by direct and "primitive" narrative means, Chee Chee pursued a more economical graphic style, a reduction of line and image more in keeping with the mainstream of international modern art.

At the age of thirty-two and at the height of a new-found success as an artist and printmaker, Chee Chee died tragically by committing suicide.

A short love story...

April come she will

When streams are ripe and swelled with rain;

May, she will stay,

Resting in my arms again.

June, she'll change her tune,

In restless walks shell prowl the night;

July, she will fly

And give no warning to her flight.

August, die she must,

The autumn winds blow chilly and cold

September I'll remember

A love once new has now grown old.

A little piece of Toronto in Buenos Aires: Starbucks

Toronto: "It's no goodbye"

Gini .

Why is so important to learn another language....

Hope you have enjoyed it :o)

If I were my boss...

I would hire me.

It is not easy to trust people you don't know. When you are looking for someone who has all the qualities, qualifications and competences you need, it is not easy to find him/her.

I know me that is why I trust me.

I know that I am a responsible person. I know about my commitment with everything I do in life: job, family, friends, job again.

I know that I am not going to work FOR you, but I am going to work WITH you. I will see in the same direction you see. Your goals will be my goals. That is called"fussion". That is "partnership". That's the only way I believe things work. That's me. I cannot feel apart.

I believe I could do everything if I only had the chance. "It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult" (Seneca). That is why if I were my boss, I would hire me :o)
