That kind of love...

The one that feels like home
The one that takes your breath away
The love that gives you butterflies
The one you’re looking for to hug everyday
The one that isn’t like a storm but rather like the peace after
The love that makes you laughed
The one you can’t stop looking at
The one that completes you
The love you can stay silent with
The one that puts a smile in your face
The one that makes you feel secure
The love that caress you delicately
The one that let you be who you are
The one you love and don’t know why
That kind of love…

My book, En busca de la paz (In search of peace)

André, a very curious little boy, is in search of an answer to the question What is peace? What is it made of ? What does it feel like? 
The answers come to him in a dream in which his grandfather appears and teaches him that peace is wonderful and can be experienced when feeling secure, safe, and protected. 

This is my second published book. It is called En busca de la Paz. That means In search of peace.
I wrote this book after my younger son asked me about the September 11 attacks. He wanted to know about peace and how he could feel it. My explanation to him is carry on the message of the book.

You can get your book in Amazon. Link is showed above

Go ahead and smile...

Go ahead and smile because it's the beginning of a new day
   Go ahead and smile because you just listened to your favorite song
Go ahead and smile because life can bring you second chances
   Go ahead and smile because that smell reminds you of your childhood
Go ahead and smile because you can feel the cool grass with your feet
   Go ahead and smile because you can hear the rain falling
Go ahead and smile because you just experienced the most beautiful sunset
   Go ahead and smile because your child smiled with you
Go ahead and smile because your eyes just met the eyes of the one you love
   Go ahead and smile because you lived another day
Go ahead and smile because you just want to

Color my world...

Color my world with your smile
  Because it lightens so much your face
Color my world with your voice
  Because it is a soothing sound
Color my world with your laugh
  Because is music to my ears
Color my world with the sight of yours eyes
  Because they tell me everything you want me to know
Color my world with your hug
  Because it shows me the way you feel
Color my world with your life
  Because is the only thing I really need

N Y Times article: Is the Drive for Success Making Our Children Sick?

Good article about how stress associated to school is making our kids sick. This is happening in college students, high and middle school students and as little as students around 5-6 years old.

"Expectations surrounding education have spun out of control. On top of a seven-hour school day, our kids march through hours of nightly homework, daily sports practices and band rehearsals, and weekend-consuming assignments and tournaments."

"Nearly one in three teenagers told the American Psychological Association that stress drove them to sadness or depression — and their single biggest source of stress was school." 

"At the other end of the age spectrum, doctors increasingly see children in early elementary school suffering from migraine headaches and ulcers. Many physicians see a clear connection to performance pressure."
