Anything Goes On Sunday: The Devil Is A Handsome Man

This poem is dedicated to anybody who has fallen in love with a narcissistic person. Let the pain go away. The deceiver will never stop deceiving!

devil god deceiver man narcissistic dra martha castro noriega mexico

This is a paradox.

-you are a bad man-

You lie like you breathe You cheat and deceive

Your smiles and your jokes Are in fact just a cloak

The sparkle in your eyes As you take pleasure in my cries

And the way you rejoice Hearing the pain in my voice

Made me understand That you ARE a bad man

Under that polished facade, You believe you’re a god

I’m tired of your neglect And of your disrespect

So I pen these words Hoping you’ve heard

That at the end of the day Those games that you play

Maybe you are fun But my dear I am done!

Anything Goes On Sunday: Food Art For A Wonderful Relaxing Sunday

FOOD ART

Creating wonderful art with nature is a masterpiece for the eyes to admire. It looks so good, would you eat it?

A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY:

Filippo Tommaso Marinetti was the first artist in the modern era to think of the preparation and consumption of food as art.

The avant-garde Futurist movement, formed by Marinetti and other artists in Milan in 1909, embraced the industrial age and all things mechanical—from automobiles and planes to manufacturing methods and city planning. They thought cooking and dining, so central to everyone’s day-to-day lives, should also be central to their farsighted, far-out ideas.

Just because …We Love – For You To Be Happy Today!

Looking at beautiful pictures is an incentive to our brain neurons to produce dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphins to makes us feel good, better, happy, up-beat. Also reading few encouraging lines, and peaceful notes of love, is good enough to activate these hormones and neurotransmitters to make us go stronger and more hopeful through out our day. So here are some for today!

When you love, you don’t abandon …ever!

“The sun does not abandon the moon to darkness.” ― Brian A. McBride,

Climb Every Mountain Inspiring Song Shirley Basey Video

CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN

climb every mountain music inspiration dra martha castro mexico

I watched Barbra Streisand concert, delightful voice, BUT, Barbara Streisand misunderstood this or decided to change the meaning of the song. She sang a song from the “Sound Of Music”. (My favorite version is with one of my best-loved singers of all times: Dame Shirley Bassey). I have a problem with a part of the lyrics.

I will tell you first a little bit of my musical experience so you know why I dare to criticize (in a constructive way, of course) the lyrics and Barbara Sreisand.

Barbra Streisand lacks that philosophy heart and didn’t put it together correctly. She was the director of her own concert, and this was a flaw of hers

I happen to be a musician. I play the guitar and sing very well, actually. I sang professionally in my youth to pay for my medical career.

climb every mountain music inspiration dra martha castro mexico

I studied music, singing lessons and musical composicion: music and lyrics, in Bellas Artes in Mexico City. So I think I have a very good idea of what I am talking about, but I am always open for a healthy debate and to change my mind if somebody is willing to explain to me why I am wrong in my assertion about this song:

The problem I have with, is highlighted and I will tell you why below the lyrics:

Climb every mountain
Ford every stream
Follow every rainbow
‘Till you find your dream

It should say “reach” your dream, not find your dream. You already need to have had found your dream, this is “know” your dream, then climb every mountain, until you reach it.

And I don’t see any problem with the rhyme. Changing the word find to reach would not affect the tune nor the octaves, but it would make a lot more sense, and it would have more psychological and inspirational impact, in my opinion.

What do you think?
