WORTH READING: Drew Magary’s new book Someone Could Get Hurt is released to the world today. It has inspired me to become a dad. Who wants to carry my child?
“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.”
“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.”
“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.”
“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
“Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.”
The Wisdom of Siddhartha Gautama

Life is simple if we look at it the way Mother Teresa does :-)
Just returned from covering the 10th anniversary celebration/protests of the military being pushed from Vieques with NYSV (New York Solidarity with Vieques)
On my way back home I stayed with friends in San Juan, and was immediately taken aback by the utter beauty and soul of the graffiti in Rio Piedras & Santurce. Thought it was worth sharing.
From one barrio to another, gracias por la oppertunitad para experienciar lo mejor de la isla del encanto…
More info on the trip, the Vieques struggle, and efforts at home to come!
Also, if you’ve yet to see…
“El Barrio Tours: Gentrification in East Harlem”

p.s. If Google tells me Vieques or Puerto Rico is misspelled again I am going to write an angry letter. They are real places I swear.
