A TRAVES DE LAS PAREDES FRONTERIZAS

To my sweet love,

A mi dulce amor,

I know our love has been moving fast on the mental plane.

Sé que nuestro amor se ha estado moviendo rápido en el plano mental.

At the same time, it has been moving very slowly in the physical realm.

Al mismo tiempo, se ha estado moviendo muy lentamente en el reino físico.

Every night I go to bed very lonely and flooded over with continually frustrated desire to clasp my body in passion to a very beautiful woman like you.

Cada noche me voy a la cama muy sola e inundada con el deseo continuamente frustrado de abrochar mi cuerpo en la pasión a una mujer muy hermosa como tú.

On the days and nights when you greet me and tell me you love me with your emoji kisses, my heart is filled with hope and my life with happiness.

En los días y noches en que me saludas y me dices que me amas con tus besos emoji, mi corazón está lleno de esperanza y mi vida de felicidad.

Just two or three words from you, “Good morning baby” or “I love you sweetheart” are all I need because I know your situation and you need to work long hours every day.

Apenas dos o tres palabras de usted, “bebé del buen día” o “te amo cariño” son todo lo que necesito porque sé su situación y usted necesita trabajar largas horas cada día.

But last night you didn’t text me back and my heart sank in severe darkness.

Pero anoche no me has texto de nuevo y mi corazón se hundió en la oscuridad severa.

I know you must have been very tired from working every day 12 long hours.

Sé que debes estar muy cansado de trabajar todos los días durante 12 largas horas.

Any other woman would have given up on our love long ago. We don’t speak the same language, don’t come the same country or culture, don’t even have work schedules that match each other, don’t have the same religion, don’t listen to the same music, don’t laugh at the same jokes, don’t barely get to plant sweet kisses on each other’s tasty lips.

Cualquier otra mujer habría renunciado a nuestro amor hace mucho tiempo. No hablamos el mismo idioma, no llegamos al mismo país o cultura, ni siquiera tenemos horarios de trabajo que coinciden, no tenemos la misma religión, no escuchamos la misma música, T risa en las mismas bromas, no apenas consigue plantar besos dulces en los labios sabrosos del uno al otro.

But still you held onto me long after others, with so much more in common, would have quit.

Pero aún así se mantuvo en mí mucho después de que otros, con mucho más en común, hubieran dejado.

So last night, when you didn’t text, I got scared you fell out of love and into the common sense that says this is too crazy and you decided it was too much not to drop, and my heart sank.

Así que ayer por la noche, cuando no escribiste, me asusté que te cayeras de amor y en el sentido común que dice que esto es demasiado loco y decidiste que era demasiado para no caer, y mi corazón se hundió.

I had asked you, because we couldn’t get our days matched up, to let me pick you up and spend the night and it seems you got reasonably scared because we’ve only seen each other in person for all of one work break and a meal at a restaurant but not really spent time together.

Te lo había preguntado, porque no podíamos conseguir que nuestros días coincidieran, para dejar que te recoja y pasar la noche y parece que tienes un miedo razonablemente porque sólo nos hemos visto en persona durante toda una pausa de trabajo y Una comida en un restaurante pero realmente no pasamos tiempo juntos.

You are working to avoid deportation while I am working to avoid death from diabetes due to loss of insurance and massive debt.

Usted está trabajando para evitar la deportación mientras estoy trabajando para evitar la muerte por diabetes debido a la pérdida de seguro y la deuda masiva.

Of course it seems wise at this time not to complicate our lives with the extremely hot fire of love. But honey I ask you please to do it anyway and come burn with me. For what is life without love but a living death? And there’ll be plenty of time to be dead when we really are dead. We’ve come so far and merged our hearts together in this great, amazing love, to give up now. We can’t give up, honey, We’ve got to hold on, we’ve come too far even in this short time already.

Por supuesto, parece prudente en este momento no complicar nuestras vidas con el fuego extremadamente caliente del amor. Pero cariño te pido por favor que lo hagas de todos modos y venga a quemar conmigo. ¿Qué es la vida sin amor, sino una muerte viva? Y habrá mucho tiempo para morir cuando realmente estamos muertos. Hemos llegado tan lejos y hemos unido nuestros corazones en este gran y asombroso amor, para renunciar ahora. No podemos rendirnos, cariño, Tenemos que aguantar, hemos llegado demasiado lejos en este corto tiempo.

Yes, I know we are caught now having to take a tremendous risk and do something very scary or else lose everything we have together. I know spending nights together is the only way since there are no days we can spend together. I know we don’t know enough yet to know how the years will turn, both of us having brought ourselves to the bitter pain of divorce through the tempestuous flames of youthful desire. But I say, baby, no love is ever perfect and every love demands you sacrifice more for it than you want to or are comfortable giving. But I say to you, darling, be brave and take this chance with me while we still have it. I will be there with you every step of the way and I promise you you will be so glad even despite the hardship we must take now to get there. But as the first Selena sang in a song many, many years ago, the one who sang in both English and Spanish, “Listen to your heart”. Please my baby. Don’t listen to fear. I know we can win big. You don’t have to chant NAM MYOHO RENGE KYO with me. It is enough that I do for us to gain absolute victory in life. Just by supporting me, the one who does chant, you are assured absolute victory in life, victory over incredible odds. Let’s not let this movie come to an unhappy ending. People are watching us and want to see us happily married forever. Now is our chance baby. I beg you don’t be scared. Come. Come spend the nights we have now and Let’s build our love into a treasure trove of happiness so not only we but our friends can see that love can work out in the lives of two courageous who trust each other and the forces of fortune and that there is still a chance for the human race. Come. Come join me, and together Let’s smash this border wall once and for all.

To say, “I love you” isn’t enough to express all I feel for you, love, but I will say these 3 (or 2) words anyway because they’re all I have.

I LOVE YOU, Y_______

SPENDING POWER, NOT MONEY

Somebody was talking about money the other day when I mentioned my determination to do only my mission of creating great writing the other day so I figured I ought to enlighten those of you who are still hostage to money about value and worth. Money, like truth (as first SG Pres. Makiguchi said), has absolutely no value. Those of you who’ve been around a few decades, understand the truth of this when you realize that a dollar today can get you little more than a mere penny could get you 50 years ago.
What you should be focusing on instead of money is spending power. Spending power is basically a product of 3 factors: the value of the money you possess, the market conditions, which itself is a product of what people are actually willing to spend on any given item plus the fixed higher price sellers are able to get from an item irregardless of what people were originally willing to spend, and in this category fall all kinds of things which include taxes, fees, things which don’t even exist that people are told are necessary or desirable commodities,  in other words, a whole bunch of nothings which are dressed up in fancy sounding but totally incomprehensible words, and, finally the 3rd factor of LIFE CONDITION, which is actually the primary factor that enables a person to increase his or her own value to others as well as spend only on what one considers to be of true value that either matches or doesn’t exceed its preset market value. A person with a weak and unself-developed life condition will have much lower both spending and earning power than a person with a life condition that’s been built up over time by rigorous practice, self-discipline and unswayability. A person who is able to dream and never lets go of their dreams and works hard and wisely towards realizing them is such a person. Every dollar that would be wasted on the lottery is instead spent wisely. That is the vast difference in spending power, which neither a stock market report nor price index can possibly tell you. Are you happy and truly satisfied most of your day? If so, you have good spending power. If not, your spending power is very weak.

I am a writer being forced to be a medical transcriptionist in a system that is verged by the fear of many and the immorality of a few to collapse very soon and leave us all, rich or poor, in much bigger trouble.
The teachers in school said the few spoil it for the many but they never taught us how to fix that and look what our world has turned into. They were just talking about the one or two kids who act out and that’s why there was no way they could help us figure out how to stop the kids with 2-digit ages above 20 who have gotten their fingers on the controls of our financial system and are enslaving us into their reign of terror with no effective accounting or oversight.

i am very young

As long as I’m alive, I will stay young. Whether it’s nurturing the next generation, fighting for equal justice for all or awakening people to the beauty of their lives, I will be totally vibrant and alive. What I was too scared, too sick and too overwhelmed to do for too long, I will be doing 3-fold for a very long time ahead. I dare all you 20-year, 30-year olds, to try to keep up with me.

Mike’s final speech on what it means to govern

Hi. Welcome to my blog. Here is an excerpt from my screenplay, Return of the Green, the final scene, President Greenbaum’s final (unbeknownst to him) speech of his life in Dallas on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy. Happy 4th of July.

 

 

MIKE

There seems to be a mean-

spiritedness about people who go

into politics, a desire to beat the

pants off the other side, a

competitiveness of such ugly nature

that it doesn’t even even have the

fun-spiritedness of sports. Perhaps

that can’t be totally avoided,

though I think you’ll agree that it

didn’t have to sink this bad that it

disgusts and turns off so many

people. I know I am forceful in my

approach. I am this way because in

such an atmosphere of deadlock,

there is no other way to do what we

really should be here to do: to

govern. To make sure that the basic

needs of all our citizens are met

and that threats to meeting those

needs are deterred. While I would

prefer being able to discuss and

negotiate how to do this, the

needs of the times and the

challenges that have been ignored

by our elected officials in

Washington for too long must be

met with decisive action now.

That is governing—having a sense of

mission of what it means first to

protect the American people, who

are the true sovereigns, and also

what it means to respond to the

founding gamut—to form a more

perfect union every day—every day—

not to lose sight of what it means

to put everything you got on the

line so that one American can be

happier today, so that one American

can be freer today, so that one

American can get a better shot at

improving his financial situation,

than yesterday. To stand on the

backs of the great innovators and

pioneers of the American spirit of

improvement and forever be at the

vanguard of new ideas and

approaches for humanity’s

betterment. That is the only reason

one should enter politics.
