El Aguacate,

The Avocado

You are my love
My joy and my treasure
My only charm
And my illusion
You are my love
My joy and my treasure
My only charm
And my illusion
Come calm my ills
Women do not be so fickle
Do not forget the suffering and cries
For your passion
Come calm my ills
Women do not be so fickle
Do not forget the suffering and cries
For your passion
I’ll give you my love, my faith
All my dreams are yours
But you will not forget
I adore the unfortunate
The poor might one day was
Your charm Your greatest desire
And your illusion
Come calm my ills
Women do not be so fickle
Do not forget the suffering and cries
For your passion
I’ll give you my love, my faith
All my dreams are yours
But you will not forget
I adore the unfortunate
The poor might one day was
Your charm Your greatest desire
And your illusion
This is a very representative song in my country. The singer is Julio Jaramillo.

Coffee

coffee

A very good drink they call Chaube that is almost as black as ink and very good in illness, especially of the stomach. This they drink in the morning early in the open places before everybody, without any fear or regard, out of clay or China cups, as hot as they can, sipping it a little at a time.

Léonard Rauwolf

In this way the first western describe the coffee, from there until now is still very appreciated by many, for example students in exam season, became part of the daily lives of people in its beginning some people came to believe it was a drink that incite the revolutionary spirit, because rebel’s meetings were held in cafes, so some leaders wanted to ban it but they were wrong because people rebelled to demand that allow the coffee.

Coffee is my favorite drink, I think there is nothing better than the smell of coffee in the morning, get up and perceive its aroma is like an invitation to start the day with great energy, or have a cup on a rainy day helps warming the body and spirit, sit in front of a window looking at the raindrops hitting on the glass while you take a sip of coffee is relaxing.

Sit with a friend while take a cup of coffee, makes it more entertaining chat, allows all the senses of sight, touch, smell, taste and hearing are activated, all in sync enjoying the moment, as says my mother if you’re not with all your senses can not enjoy the moment.
I like to sit and have a cup of coffee alone, staring vacantly and thinking about everything and nothing at once, just let my mind wander where it wants to be, I give it the freedom to take an imaginary trip to the place where you feel more free and at ease.

The path

A green and black wall in front

In such a deep black that surrounds your soul

Your goal is in the midst of that darkness

A dim light is with you

Just you enter the darkness, then you begin hearing noises around you

There is movement everywhere, they move protected by darkness

Just listen to their movements, and your worst nightmares fill your mind

You hear whistles and cold air begins to cross your body

You walk faster to end torture

Your goal is in front of you

then you look around you, you try to watch something in the darkness

With your goal in hand, you come back on the road traveled

Near the end of that dark wall steps are heard

You run as fast as you can

When leaving your body and breath is calm

Back to see the wall from which you just leave

Only sees an impenetrable darkness.

House

The House

There was an abandoned house by the train station in Riobamba. It was very sloppy, it had a plenty of grass that for a long time nobody had cut, roses had grown carelessly so it gives a terrifying appearance, those white roses hung up from a long thorny branches.
They were like a languid arms that time had injured, with a pale white flower in the end, it was like watching the death’s hand that inviting you to approach. To complement the landscape of abandonment, the train station where squeakings was never missing.
To pass with daylight was terrible, but at night was terrifying a completely dark dingy place where the wind whistled across the old windows, and the sounds of doors opening make you shiver, always hear stories from friends who had seen people walking indoors at night, lights moving in the house and piercing screams.
I never reached to witness something so scary but I was always afraid to approach at night, so I rather go for a long way to have to go near the house.

The Space to Write

I don’t have a dedicated place to write, the only requirement is the calm and that nobody disturb me, but If I could choose a place would have large windows and in a place where nothing can block my sight with comfortable chair, big desk and a wide room.

I like to write in my PC any moment, but my favorite time is at night, I don’t know because at night, but I can think spinning ideas and the calm lets me work easily, in the night everything is different, all transform at night I don’t know if the dark, the silence, the cold or the all together. But at night all has a new look. Something that at daylight isn’t there or that goes unnoticed.

Now I always carry a book on hand to take notes of ideas, because for me the hardest part is getting started, for some may simply sit in front of the PC and the words begin to flow, for me is a terrible struggle sometimes I spend time watching the screen with a flashing cursor, as if it were challenging me to write something, it’s an eternity waiting the right words, and above all the most important express my ideas fully.

Writing 101, day eight

Dear Fear,
I’m writing to tell you that I’m finishing our relationship, I am not the problem is you, you try to control me all the time, do not let me improve, develop myself. And although I know you do to defend myself but I think I can already do it alone, I’m mature enough to know that I can overcome challenges.
When we met it was a relief that you were beside me it gave me the strength I needed, I pushed out of the danger I was in, but it all went out of control, you do it now even with things that are not dangerous for me and you push me away from my goals trying to protect me from a nonexistent danger, stop me when I want forward.
This also is my fault because I lets you do it, I let you win without fighting, but I want to tell you that that will change. But I thank you for the help you gave me in moments of greatest danger.

Although you’ll coming back I will not be alone.
Greetings,

Looking this picture reminds me, that all situation is temp, all the sad and the happiness.

One day you could be the indispensable employee, the best paid, the first choice for everybody.

On the other hand you could be unemployed, looking for an opportunity for change your life.

All that you have is this moment.

No matter past, you can’t change it.

The future, is unkown. Don’t worry about it.

Enjoy this moment, is a gift from life, do not waste it.

About

I’m a bookworm, since I was at school I liked machines and books, I was astonished and amazed even now looking how the man has created biggest machines, a teacher asked me. What do you want to be when you grow up? I answered I want to be a scientific to create a robot, I was very sure of my decision.

Well I am not a scientific, but still I passionate machines and books, so this blog isn’t about a specific subject, you will find my experiences with engines, how to repair it, and some news interesting for me, some comments about books I’m reading and some articles that I like.

Day Five, Writing 101

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Really struck me this phrase, to walk without a path fills you of so many mixed feelings, the excitement of being in a place that nobody else has seen, no one else has walked, at same time the fear of not having security which is the right path, life itself is a journey that begins at birth since that moment there is no route.
The path is made by walking, you don’t know the destination, you don’t know the path or obstacles on it, you just follow each day and so you approach your destination, every day is a step that brings you closer to your destination, each decision in life is a change to the path that you had, sometimes we feel completely lost without knowing what to do, we are afraid to move for fear of getting lost more and then not know how to get back.
There will be roads that do not reach anywhere, others that will take you where you do not want be, and others will do you spin in circles without moving forward then you must get back on your footsteps and seek new routes, remember that you have companions since born, and all the way you will find many more, some of them will be with you all the way, others will walk beside you only for a while.
The important thing is that you always keep moving, do not stop progress, the best of the trip is not the destination but enjoy the journey, enjoy the life, live and be happy.
