A Good Review

I got a very nice critique over another piece of mine which was published on August at the Aphelion Webzine (and I do not even know this chick Junior Critic, I swear!!:)

How cool is that?!

Memorable Mention on my poem "Outsider"

What a Shakin' experience!!


Antarctic Treat: A Tetric Trick

It's freezing scary the reasons why so many eyes are into the North and South poles. I am now petrified by the fact that the news are announcing the resurrection of foreigners exploration interests on the Antarctic region for natural gas, oil (petroleum) and other mineral extractions. In an allusion to Pink "Flood" we should proclaim, "Leave the penguins all-one!!"
There are just so many ways to use the resources we are already using anyway, such as recycling and purifying natural elements to bother putting your teeth on the ice pudding. Knowing that the Antarctica Continent is the largest natural resource of clean, fresh and pure water to the entire planet, and that there is no limit to humans greed and ambitions with serious disastrous consequences to this unique ecosystem, the results of such enterprising would be catastrophic to all present humanity. After all, would you pour dirty water on your own tea?? I don't think so.

But the clock is tick(l)ing and the bomb will explode if we do not stop those staring eyes that were not satisfied to only contemplate but ate all the natural beauty...

Tic or Tea?? It's just a matter of time.

A dessert to deserters in the desert surges,
"I know your urges!
I am good meat,
So come and eat.”
One deserter with the eyes full of lust
asks, “can I trust?
My mind is fecund!”
“Not even a second!
I am just a mirage on the desert.
You are so pervert...”
He took a bite
with his tongue uptight.

All Mine!!

There she came showing off her flesh,
"I am so fresh,
I am so neat,
So come and eat.”

He stared at her, eyes full of lust,
"You became rust,
You're now all red..."
"Are you not glad??"

She sighed and into tears she burst,
"To Hell", she cursed,
Let drop or droop
He who's no dupe.

(A Minute to ponder on a metaphor
of what we've been doing to Mother Earth)

Blog Action Day: A Global Warning... Aquiescencia Global (Vote)

At last, we should care for Mother's Earth.
Let's all act today for a better tomorrow,
Or the future will be filled with sorrow...
Having good conscience has its worth!

All my paintings and handcrafts are made on recycle paper
And NO to those Plastic Bags that keep making the sea life sick!
I also make handmade bags with my creations on organic cotton with acrylic and painting for fabrics.

Walk more, be fit and enjoy Nature in a Stress Free "Feet-ness" in Bora Bora
I created polls on my community "Dance As One" on ORKUT about the problems we all face today.

What's the Best Solution to Stop Global Warming??
What would you be willing to do to help our Earth??

[X] Use less automobile, car and walk more??
[X] Talk/Meet with governamental authorities
[X] Denounce ecological crimes
[X] Stop smoking
[X] Recycle more
[X] Not waste water, to cleanse, rinse, with economy
[X] Unplug any devices or electronic supplies while they're not being used.
[X] Warn people about the problems we face today
[X] Plant trees (I've got plenty of avocado trees after I started recycling on my garden:)

Now I'm takling showers and rinsing my hair while I fill up a tank with the water I used. This way I have it to clean the floor, wash the toilet and flush up the residuals. I cannot just sit down and watch the global weather changing so radically, and one should be blind not to notice that the changing is real and scary too! Anyway, hugging trees, I should have named that too, for I also do that a lot, especially for those which protect me from those acid rains and from the gigantic tempests that's been happening more and more over the years. Such a shame we didn't take care of that, although much have been said (and not done) since that ECO convention that took place in Rio in the early nineties. Back then I already had my ecological agenda when someone asked me, "Is it because Ecology is IN??" Like saying that I was just following a trend, the new fashion... Well, I said, "Nope, it's because the subject is so out there and we seem to do so little. I'm just getting started with that!" So much that we still need to learn. Tell me about economy!! Soon there will be no more Politics, or Economics: only ECOS!! If you have other suggestions I will be just thrilled to learn... Also take a look Here, and find out that one person can actually help stop the global climate drastic changings.

Actually, I remember me hugging trees when I was a little girl. They soothed my heart many times, when I was the one who needed a hug... I guess it was my own instincts telling me that I needed them to be alive! I also talked to them... they used to tell me many stories... like a grandma!! Oh, those old days when we could stop by just to listen out... some good connections! What am I talking about?? Old days, no way!! I'll be right back... I just remember that I have a tree I just planted to give a hug full of CHI... Cheers!
