To go out in the night.

. .
(This is a practice of my english classes) . . When I was in my twenties, I used to go out to discos with my friends. And I must admit that I used to go out, not because I liked it but because it was a way of living in society, a way of relating with girls, with friends, with diverse people in a more relaxed athmosphere than work's environment. Nowadays, I hardly ever go out in the night. Once or twice a year, mainly to go to the cinema, and to dinner with my wife. The reason of this austerity is that we have many difficulties to leave our son and our daughter with somebody who may look after them. But probably, if we had really wished to go out, we would have solved it. 
In fact, I have always thought that there are many others activities more interesting than going out in the darkness... than going into smoky and tight and noisy locals... than losing sleep... than being enforced to wake up late, and therefore losing wonderfull sun's hours of life and pure air. I think that the…

To clear out (Leave everything)

I'm going to get rid of my worries. 
I'm going to get rid of my fears.
I'm going to get rid of my boundaries
that doesn't allow me to reach my fate.

I want to get rid of the chains
that press my heart and tie my brain.
I want to get rid of the thoughts
that stick me and hit me without faith.

Heaps of junk inside my soul
must disappear with fire and light.

In the drawers of my inner home
only hope, only smiles.
I'm going to clear out the path
that I have to start freely under the sun
sorting out the array of instants
some in passion, some in fight.

I'm giving away myself with joy
working on me, I'm helping the world.
Throwing away the shit, I choose
a better pace and a sweeter world.
I ask you to take out all your rubbish
far away of your core.

Catalonia. Human Towers.The "Minyons de Terrassa" get upload the "3 of 10" this morning.

In Catalonia, we do human towers, “castells”. The human towers are the result of the sum of many efforts. In the human towers, men and women apply efforts following an order, a plan, an strategy. Every arm is important, every leg is important. And men and women need to believe that the human tower will be lifted, that will reach its fulfillment, that the tower is rising . The members of the tower must be encouraged continuosly. They must encourage each other continuosly. The people are very important. The people who do support under the tower are essential. The tower can't ascend without the people below. When the tower is up, the most tiny child, who is in the top, raises his or her hand. At this moment, the tower is considered as uploaded. Then, the members start to download the tower. If they completely download the tower without the collapse, then the tower is considered “uploaded” and “downloaded”, this is the highest achievement. If the tower collapse during descent, then th…

November, 9. A thrilling and victorious day for Catalonia.

The crowds got close to the point of votation last sunday despite the prohibition. . . . Last sunday, november 9, we, the Catalans, experienced a thrilling and victorious day. Not even in the best dreams I could have imaginated so many people defying the prohibition of putting the vote in the urn. So many people, and so diverse people. Grandparents, young ones, grandsons pushing the wheelchairs of their grandparents, families, catalan speakers, castilian speakers, workers that had arrived from germany only to vote... Some people could not vote because their identity cards were expired, or because they didn't realise that the adress of their identity cards was different to the ellectoral college where they had gone to vote. I remember the case of a girl that had just arrived from germany to vote in Terrassa, and she could not vote because in her identity card there was the adress of Germany. Some old men left the ellectoral college in tears because they remembered the long decades of d…

The harassed Catalonia's consultation of november 9

The intimate and overwhelming satisfaction of shouting what we believe, what we love, what we think, what we wish. The identitary and essential decision of not shutting up not even when someone is threatening us with  flares of impotent and empty glances. The river's force, travelling towards the sea with all its natural and unstoppable power, deafening with the lofty stridor of the free water. The angry hoots of those who are willing to stop the forthright Earth's energy. The golden tremor of the vineyard's leaves in the hills, in an iniciatic autumn, like clandestine flags celebrating the people's victory, humble, stubborn, real, patient. The grandparents, the grandchildren, the armed wings with ballpens and paper sheets, and poems, and candles, and chants, and prayers... in a dark slavery's night hidden for decades. The slow crutch that advances towards the votation's institute, to say what the fascists said would be silence for ever, seventy five years ago. Not …

The Spanish Government is a black spot in the heart of the democratic Europe.

A black spot in the heart of the democratic Europe. An state that protects the dark protagonists of Franco's dictatorship. Argentina has asked the extradition of several ministers of Franco, and of some high-up VIP of the former regime, but the current spanish government systematically blocks the clarification of the facts, and prevents the extradition. There are many families who lost some members that were executed by Franco, and that were buried in the roadside ditches or in unknown fields or woods; the current government also hinders these families the search and the recovery of the bodies of their families. The Spanish Government also denies the plurinational character of Spanish State , and denies again and again the right of Catalonia to express the will of the people through a democratic consultation. The obsession of Spanish government of not allowing the votation makes an ass of itself. On the contrary, UK, with the Scotland referendum, gave a lesson of democracy and civ…
