"el Morocho", mi viejo, my dad... on his firsts 60s

with 60 years on him, he has been always an inspiration, a support and a great friend. no Fonchy can be understood without knowing and listening to him. Ladies and Gentelmen, with you.... "El Morocho", my dad, my heroe :)


i just love to introduce him to my friends... he recently turn 60 years old, so because of the special number i wanted to give some lines to him, even when he is not really a blog-reader :P (i know 50 can be more meaningful, but when we turn some 10-multiple is special, isn't it?) u might know him as "el morocho" or just as my dad :P
me encanta presentarlo a mis amigos, y le quise dedicar algunas líneas ahora que cumplió 60 años, aunque no sea (él) precisamente un lector de blogs. normalmente en la family y sus patas le dicen "el morocho", pues él siempre llamar así a la gente alrededor.

i don't want to make people bored talking about him and how nice person he is... we all know about that :) but people around might not know a couple of phrases i learned from him, that maybe he got somewhere else... but what i find important is that he got it, he learned it and then he taught me so.
no quiero aburria anadie hablando de lo gran persona que es, ya todos lo saben :) pero lo que no saben es algunas frases que he podido aprender de él, y aunque quizá las haya sacado de algún lado, las encuentro importantes y edificantes.


there are situations we can change... or not
if we can change them, there is no reason to be angry
if them cannot be changed, there is no reason to be angry either

the main fact here, i think, is to remain with a good attitude and try to reach a higher level of self-control, and even when i am not talking about reaching the Nirvana that's the path to improve ourselves :) (not Nirvana-reaching, but looking for a better mental stage)
hay situaciones que podemos cambiar, y otras no
si se pueden cambiar, no hay razón para amargarse; como tampoco la hay si no se puede
lo principal aquí es mantener siempre una buena actitud, tratando de elevar nuestro nivel de control sobre las emociones, sin que necesariamente llegar al Nirvana

for my soldiers, the best weapons
he answered that way someday i asked about replacing some components in my computer, starting the question with something like "would it be possible...?". he has always support both my sister and me on our activities, and i don't need to mention the special care he had on education (and the pc as a tool for it), starting at home. the metaphor of education as a weapon is way powerful :)
para mis soldados, las mejores armas
esto me lo dijo como respuesta para reemplazar algunos componentes de la computaora. mi viejo siempre ha sido un gran apoyo en todas nuestras actvs y eso sin mencionar la especial atención que la da a la educación (y bueno, la pc es una herramienta para ella). la metáfora de educación como arma es genial

ok, enough... too much wisdom for the month :P
bueno, sufciente sabiduría por el mes

i love my dad, he is intelligent as hell, he can build up a conversation from nothing and keep it interesting for hoooours... i can never win when arguing with him (this annoys me, but i like the challenge!)... and i can keep talking about him until i reach the end of the Blogger characters limit... his birthday was on Feb 18th, but today is also a good day to give some words to him, it is his Anniversary :) and my mom's of course :D I know they are not reading this... and if the do, i'm sure they are not understanding... so... ¡¡¡Feliz Aniversario!!! :D
mi viejo es lo máximo y lo amo: es inteligente, construye conversaciones de la nada y mantiene el interés de la misma por horas, y nunca puedo ganarle en una discusión (es irritante, pero me gusta el reto), y podría hablar bien de él por 987653456789 caracteres más. su cumple fue el 18 de Febrero, y aunque ya pasó hoy 2 de Marzo es su aniversario... igual un buen día para desearle felicidades :)

es vdd, mucha gente piensa opina igual... y se me viene a la memoria un trago que me invitó hace unos años y que yo inocentemente acepté (lo postearé luego)
