This time is for all to be us

Winter solstice has been thought the ages a time for thinking and introspection. A time when the dark days bring the bright light of the stpirit shinning on communities and through our society. A time when families come together and friendships are strenghtened. For some of us followers of Christ His birth commemoration brings a deep sense of belonging and of peace.
But the peace that some of us feel is far away removed from those living in the middle of turmoil, near or far away. This is the time to come close together and make peace to be the central attraction force in and within our nations.
May this time of year bring happines and joy to all of you.
Merry Christmas and a very prosperous new year!

This a good example, very good example of how working for peace goes hand in hand with working for the environment!

Quick Change Artists on America's Got Talent

It takes time to change clothing when you don't know what to do or how to do it. But if you know how, if you really know how then it doesn't take any time at all!

This is a cool site: The idea is that once a week we should stop and hug someone. At 1 PM West Coast Time (PST) we have to hug someone that is near us.
Can you hug someone this Tuesday? Don't forget.

So long ago!

It has been said many times: time really flies!
This is true we have to believe that. Once more I am writing something in my blog just to keep it going. Have nothing to say except that the semester is gone. That one more group of student is moving along, and one more group of people becomes part of my life. Some will continue been close, some will not.
I hope that this tools that we now have -the internet- will allow us to be in touch.

Is time infinite?

I'm reading a blog about the infinte and the finite and is making me think about the relationship between finite moments and the infinity of time. This post is to have a record of Todd's blog in my blog.

April 5, 1948.

Date of birth!
As this week I get to my 59 th birthday I get to feel a sense of tranquility and joy. Many things have happened in my life, and all of them have been a blessing from God. When something looked like it wasn't very good for me down the road it came out that it was the best thing it had happened to me.
When things happen it is not easy to see what the whole context is, it is not easy to see what the consequences of it will be, it is hard to see all the connections with other thing in our lives; but something that now I can see is that there is a connection between our past and our future.
It is obvious for some -may be, but what the connection is in my life no one knows. The sure thing is that after the day is gone I have seen the reason behind it all!

Harvest time

It is so difficult to know when is the right time to harvest. As we go along in our lives things start to happen in a way that -if you don't force them- fit together. In one of my classes one student came with a great idea: somebody should write a book "for dummies" about environmental stewardship! So my answer was why don't you write it? So I recommended that she started a blog where she would be posting her ideas and...
here it is! "Stewardship for Dummies"
By doing so she gave me a great feeling of optimism, the Lord has given us the challenges and the tools to face those challenges.

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing. So I'll be using it to post directly from my Flickr account. Hope this is going to make it a lot easier to put pictures here. The Youtube account for some reason that I don't figure out is not working :-(
