'The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.' — Albert Einstein
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be critical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.
'Painting will get you through a lot of things in this life' a friend once told me. She was right. It has and still is. There is hardly anything better than when brush touches canvas and composing a world from ones own thoughts. A turning point in my artwork was a trip to Mexico living there in order to learn Spanish. While there I began writing poems in Spanish and so decided to add a few to this site. Thank you for reading this and for viewing my work.
He vivido en México por tres meses para aprender español y la cultura. Ha sido el evento de mi vida. Me encanta México. La experencia ha cambiado mi vida y la dirección de mi arte. Ahora incluyo mis poemas con mis pinturas.
Corazon libre, alma paciente
y para devolver
Todo a ti
De palabras ciertas
Nada mas importante
En el mundo que
Mas que un tesoro de oro
Este poema está dedicado a una persona muy especial para mí, mi profesora, Angélica Guerrero
La Cara En Las Nubes
Vi una cara en las nubes
Pero es solo vapor y neblina
Vi un cambio en las nubes
Pero es solo viento y tiempo
Sentí una gota de lluvia
Pero es solo una lágrima
De mis ojos
Por la pérdida
De mi hermana.
El cielo se cae
La tierra se mueve
A condición de
Que todo cambie
En el mundo
Sabe que mi amor
Por tí siempre
Es como una
Montaña de oro
