    Siegfried Woldhek came off the stage with a convinced disposition that he has found the real face or generational faces of Leonardo Da Vinci https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vXsynj1QkQ View more
    Siegfried Woldhek came off the stage with a convinced disposition that he has found the real face or generational faces of Leonardo Da Vinci https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vXsynj1QkQ It is highly compelling but does not put away the possibility that Woldhek is too certain and certainty requires confirmation. It is the same in science.

    Just because one scientist has developed a way of doing that works, it is not until the experiment is repeated by another scientist that we can add credence to the assertion that the real face of Leonardo has been found.

    History does get shaped over time and then re-shaped as well. This encourages me to view the Da Vinci History TV documentary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYBO0YyJ6RU [Run time 90 Minutes] Whether it is documentary or films, directors are open to interpretation and place their view on the face of Da Vinci and what his life was actually about.

    Christian Galvez is an interesting mind, he is among those who elevate my thinking and in that regard I welcome such people. Close

    #5 @ @Gert ๐Ÿ Scholtz

    The great thing Gert is that exposure to Spanish poets helps with your personal aim of beginning to learn the Spanish language. What I am learning about both Spanish and Latin American poets is the relationship with the political environment.

    These were not people like William Wordsworth who examined daffodils and was enthused by yellow flowers, Spanish poets are more like Wilfred Owen whose poetry was magnified because he wrote it in the trenches during battle and in Owen's case he never made it out of the First World War, which is yet another tragedy. There is something far more powerful about recognizing the generational poets from Spain, it is their back-stories that are just as compelling as the art they are recognized for. So it is the background of Miguel https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems-and-poets/poets/detail/miguel-hernandez

    Two things stand out from this background. First Miguel is the quintessential working class hero and secondly to rise from what was a menial and mundane farming existence, he had to overcome his own father who severely discouraged his son from pursuing poetry. Miguel Hernandez fought hard to achieve and so his chief constraints were not all political.

    I am also conscious that my Western education in both England and Canada never featured Spanish poets and so unless one attended a top notch school, we are faced with the promotion of Western figures and so by entertaining the life of Miguel Hernandez, I am also getting past the constraints of this Western Education - and here I am inspired by Hernadez story, while of course I weep at the tragedy of his illness and incarceration, and most of all a lifetime full of challenge and challenges.

    The first thing I needed to acquaint myself was what the "generations" are and so I spent time to get familiar with 27, 36 and also 50 and it is quite a complex array of poets and artists. I also took a look at the Generation of 98 in light of your original introduction to Antonio Machado

    Generation of 98

    Generation of 27

    Generation of 36

    Generation of 50

    Apart from Hernandez's story which you said you would write, so thank you, I also got to discover the City of Jaen, which many travel sites described as the hidden treasure of Andalucia's hidden treasure http://luxurycolumnist.com/jaen-spain/

    I like what he did to "Mad World". Not a fan of Adam Lambert, especially when he fronted Queen, but he did an incredible Mad World. I think we grew up with the same songs. I was 15 when I heard Seasons and the story behind it. Picked up a guitar wanting to learn how to play it. Toya Wilcox was big at the time.

    The amusing thing here for me is that I heard that song a few years under 50 years ago and I only get to find out about Marrakesh in this buzz !

    For me music is milestones more than beats - for this is where it captures our individuality and so what we happen to like is different to what it happens to mean. A great example is the song that stamped my psyche after 9/11 - which was Gary Jules https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N3N1MlvVc4

    When Pink Floyd sang Another Brick in the Wall that is a memory ticker that coincides with Alice Cooper "Schools Out Forever" - you can guess I was at a school which all of us did not want to be at. I can enjoy masses amount of commercial pap because I keep liking separate from meaning. For sure when we talk about song composition and beat this fits in the middle space between like and meaning - but music for me is what flows through my imagination, so much so it is individuality and music becomes DNA.

    Perhaps the song I don't like to hear but which carries the most haunting meaning for me is Terry Jacks "Seasons in the Sun"

    #14 CSNY's most poignant track was Four Dead in Ohio , an anthem to the Kent State shootings when the Ohio National Guard killed four students protesting the Vietnam War and the incursion into Cambodia

    Four Dead in Ohio - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

    These shootings led to mass Student strikes, and it was H.R. Haldeman, Nixon's Chief of Staff involved in Watergate who marked the Kent State shootings as the moment that created the deep scrutiny on Nixon's administration, that eventually uncovered Watergate and led to the impeachment of President Richard Nixon.

    The Marrekech Express is Crosby, Still, Nash's most joyful song, Four Dead in Ohio their most significant. Close

    Having been nearly 50 years since Crosby Stills and Nash recorded the song "Marakech Express" it is about time I actually saw something of the real Marrakech and now I have, it was a great way to catch a glimpse of it in this sublime buzz. I don't remember a buzz of yours before which broke into a novelist dialogue but the effect of the 2nd section added some personal "being there" and it worked. Great photographs as always and I concur with @Paul Walters about the debonaire bit.

    I read a Lifehacker piece about the origins of St. Patricks Day and discovered three interesting things

    1. Patrick was not Irish
    2. His name was not Patrick
    3. He is called St. Patrick but not canonized

    Patrick however is credited with the Shamrock which was helpful to him in spreading Christianity to a nation predominantly pagan and druid..

    re: http://lifehacker.com/the-real-history-of-st-patrick-s-day-1793354674

    Then there is the colour green. Turns out Time say it was a political origin - with the ruling class of Ireland at a time carrying a BLUE flag. Irish rebels from Confederation of Kilkenny chose a Green flag to protest the land occupied that today is Northern Ireland. Then "Society of United Irishmen" further reinforced the colour green and utlimately embedded due to a ballad called "The Wearing of Green" .

    Since I have begun reading these travel blogs, it has given me a greater sense of place. Not only did I get a fix on where Penang Island is situated, but I gained a better handle on the geography of the region, and only saw today that Malaysia has two bits to it. I also took in the context of neighbouring Indonesia and how complex that nation is with its 18,000 islands. What struck me is the 10,000+ uninhabited islands in the region. Malaysia unlike Indonesia at least has a definitive geography.

    08/03/2017 #21 Randall Burns
    #17 Thank You @Sara Jacobovici for your thoughtful response, I appreciate it and I agree with your sentiments. I understand your definition of "self" and it is a much more expanded perspective than the "norm". You're right when you say "I see or experience the "self" as all that of which we are made up. I don't relate to the self as being the intellect and/or ego.", but I find that most people's self awareness is eclipsed by exactly their "intellect and/or ego"; the emphasis of their perceptions are limited to this aspect of themselves. When I refer to "losing the self" I'm saying that by reducing their emphasis on the limitations of just "intellect and/or ego", (which in their minds is the sum and the whole of themselves), they will make room, open up for the deeper, more nebulous aspects of themselves to "wake up". I refer to expanding our paradigm of our perception of the "self", which is to break barriers that can be difficult, (myself especially included, I have a "hard head"). This could be discussed at great length but I hope that you "grok" what I'm saying.

    i use a quote with my Cooks when i'm mentoring them and I'm trying to break their perception of their own personal paradigms,

    "The only way to recognize and determine the boundaries of the possible, is to go beyond them into the realm of the impossible"

    A pleasure to read this @ Randall Burns and I sincerely thank @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher for bringing me here. Many parts in this piece instantly resonated with me that I gratefully want to share and highlight here.
    Your mention that there is so much more to our beings than just our minds; and in learning, we are learning with much more of ourselves than just our minds
    As well as that of the value of 'traveller' spirit receiving information across the whole "Learning Spectrum. I had earlier written a poem on such a traveller.:) Here is the link if you would like to read The Traveller https://www.bebee.com/producer/@savvy-raj/the-traveller
    And most of all of your experiences of the Dancing lights....
    My senses rejoicing with the feeling of the Aurora dancing so close that I could almost touch them and some aspects of my being were actually being touched by them. I could certainly relate to that even though I have yet to see the phenomemon . I look forward to witnessing these 'Dancing lights ' someday sooner than later.
    Truly appreciate and thank you for your reflections!

    Part 2/2 Now finally to my response @Randall Burns. As @Ali Anani mentioned, I consider us sensory beings and as such your post is a primary example (and proof) of that. I also very much enjoy your writing style. (Yes, there is a but here...) My only point of diversion would be away from your discussion of the "self'. I say "your", as you expressed it, but realize that it is connected to the concept of many others. As an integrator, I see or experience the "self" as all that of which we are made up. I don't relate to the self as being the intellect and/or ego. I don't see us as beings in which dwells a self. Self is defined as "a person's essential being". I find it difficult to relate to an aspiration or process in which we lose the self. Yes, we can have transcendental experiences, altered states of consciousness, experience things beyond the physical confines of our body. If one loses the self, who is having the experience? Now, it may be a matter of "semantics" but I don't think so. I come at "us" as selves in search of an identity; a lifetime (and beyond) process. The self (as you say, made up of so many parts) wears different forms of identities at different times and these identities are shaped, formed and defined by literally an infinite number of factors. I think the self is a glorious thing that we need to learn more about, all of its parts. I think that it is the identity part that trips us up. Thank you Randall for the opportunity to participate in this dynamic discussion.

    Part 1/2 WOW! OK....first to thank @Ali Anani for bringing my attention to your post @Randall Burns. I'm sorry I missed it the first time it was posted, glad to see it now! I not only enjoyed the post but the discussion that it is generating. Second, I would like to draw the attention of @CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit to this quote from your post as I think he would find it of interest: "This day with Craig and the Conch was the embodiment of this "philosophy"; by immersing my total "Learning Spectrum" I could recognize and accept the total lesson with my whole "being". Craig's behavior epitomized this sentiment as was illustrated by his relationship with the world around him."

    #11 @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher, you've given me a great idea for a new buzz! Something comical, satirical, talking about the angst of man facing this technological/informational revolution, (which is exactly what it's been for the past 25 years). Are we losing touch with our humanity? are we digressing from the natural evolutionary path, or is this the "natural" evolutionary path that we're supposed to be on? etc. (Did you ever read the original "Time Machine" by H.G. Wells? His vision of our evolutionary path is quite horrific). This would be the perfect Swansong Buzz for @David B. Grinberg, Hive, "Universe, Space and Beyond". I think I'll title it, "I have a Flip Phone and I'm not afraid to use it"

    Who has time for Twitter? I'm too busy writing. :-)

    #9 I watched Andrew Zimmern catch them with a guide somewhere and they made a nice dinner out of Conch and a few other delights. I don't mind the taste of snails but they are a bit chewy! Yes, I had to bite my tongue. How can anyone who owns a Restaurant (and it's a higher end one) suggest Escargot is fresh from the can? Ok, so my tuna in a can must be fresh too LOL!! I bet Escargot is great if eating it FRESH in France :)
    Randall Burns
    08/03/2017 #9 Randall Burns
    #7 Thank You @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher, I appreciate your response. there's nothing that tastes like fresh Conch, (or is it that fresh Conch tastes like nothing else?), definitely does not taste like snails, and no one gets them "fresh", Escargot are canned, from France. They are harvested from the vineyards.
    LMAO!! I can just imagine you biting your tongue trying not to laugh

    08/03/2017 #7 Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher
    I felt as though I could smell the fragrances you wrote of because you were so descriptive @Randall Burns. What an amazing experience you had. I'm assuming you must be a top notch chef because I watch enough foodie shows to know that excellent Chefs love to go out and find their food or they have it coming in fresh daily as you wrote of. My grandmother used to have Conch shells in her living room, they were beautiful. She brought them over from Scotland. I've never eaten Conch, does it taste similar to the snails we are served in the NE USA? Your senses have led you down tranquil paths it appears! Oh and just for fun, we were ordering at a Restaurant a few weeks ago and I noticed Escargot on the menu. I asked where it came from and if it was fresh? The owner said, "Oh yes, it's fresh... again I said, where does it come from? And she told me it's fresh from a can." It took everything I had not to burst out laughing. I didn't order it, needless to say!

    To me Jimi was the 'sound' of the 60s, everyone else just followed his example. My sister and step-sister met him as one his last concerts in California. My tall, dark, gorgeous step-sister caught his eye immediately as she got to the front of the crowd and was leaning on the stage (before they started putting up barricades) He asked her "What can I play for you gorgeous?"...to which she answered "Foxy Lady". So he did.

    Very interesting @Dean Owen. I've seen these primates in Zoo's but never up close and personal as you described. By the way, I found this on Facebook, very helpful considering I miss posts of those I so enjoy reading. Hint to anyone else @Paul Walters or @Ken Boddie, let me know if you use Facebook! Ok, if one of those Monkeys came close to me, people would probably see me running and of course I would be the laughing joke. I love the photo near the water, did you take that? I hear they are attracted to pink shorts! ;-)

    @Dean Owen A Pommy, Chinese ,Nipon... or PCN which makes for a great acronym ...another gem from the Bodie. I tend to avoid the monkeys in Ubud but find the ones in Ullawatu a lot for formidable . I have seen many a pair of designer sunglasses snatched from the faces of tourists be tossed off the cliffs when the primate became bored with their booty !!! Nice piece as always and love your pics!

    So much for the poetry of football, a game that went no where just like the Manifesto I just read - something just fizzle out and were not meant to be. It seems even Breton fizzled out.

    I will now certainly focus on learning more about Miguel Hernandez as well, who it seems Paris Review did not interview either, Pity, but they did interview Pablo Neruda who mentioned Hernandez and something about his untimely death. This is all great, I would never have known anything about any Spanish or Latin American poet had I not come across beBee. So all of this is a fascinating discovery in itself. I first must inquire more into the life of Antonio Machado, which is what I started with here.

    #2 You will soon get used to me learning in the moment, indeed from the Paris Review piece Octavio Paz mentions an interesting document that caught my eye

    Manifesto for an Independent Revolutionary Art
    Signed by Andrรฉ Breton and Diego Rivera

    Before I could read this, I realized my team Tottenham in the middle of their 2nd leg game and are winning 2-1 which is bad because that score means they are losing - so with 20 minutes left I will see how our Argentine manager solves and saves the day - football is a theater of different sorts. Once I watch that I will take a look at the Manifesto and then I have an evening with some creativity professor who apparently is going to teach us about "creative problem solving" -

    PS thankfully I don't work at a documentation center, I'd never get any work done :-)

    Look forward to following your buzzes Paz. Ironically a place I like visiting is the Paris Review and there is very little they have in the ways of interviews with Antonio Machado, so I know zero about him, but there is an interview that mentions him, and it is with Mexican poet (ironically called) Octavio Paz. I like these kind of synchronicity :-)

    I am not a great reader of poems themselves, I like getting behind the poem and try to relate the human being who is famous for writing them. In the case of the Paris Review interview with Octavio Paz, it follows the same quality and style where we get to hear poets speak.

    If you have never encountered Paris Review here is the interview with Octavio Paz

    It is amazing how I totally missed this. I encountered a 2014 New Yorker article about Black Mirror

    21/02/2017 #2 CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit
    Finished watching the first vignette of the first season and it was surprisingly good !!!

    I was taken aback when I saw that Black Mirror was from 2011, because in those six years this is the first time I have heard anyone mention it. I know my family has watched it because all the shows were ticked as watched, but then they watch far more these films and shows than I can ever do.

    The one I watched was called "The National Anthem" and it was great that it was a British production. One of the characters was played by Tom Goodman-Hill, he was difficult to recognize but then the penny dropped that he plays the father of the main family in Humans. Humans is a series that I have also watched. I see your point about the "black mirror" subject in the vignette I saw and though the pig poke was a bit over the top, I found it to be highly original in its content and delivery.

    It definitely captured the digital medium spirit of our times where people consume massive amounts of media and never tire of novelty and always on the look out for the next viral thing. Unfortunately Freud may have been right about the state of the human condition - but then we have not seen what future generations will do once they know our collective history - or at least that is my hope, but only time will tell how the next generation is transformed by our relative ignorance of the effects of media.

    Looking forward to watching another episode next weekend - the best thing I mastered is the joy of delayed gratification.

    My black mirror is Netflix. By keeping Netflix to occasional weekends I can get to watch the odd series such as Halt, Catch, Fire. There is a bunch of other series that I could get into, but because I know that I can get into them - I keep my distance.

    The way that Black Mirror has been described here, I am willing to give it a shot and see how I relate to it. I thought I was in for a treat when I began watching the series I-Robot, but man did that series just tank within a couple of episodes and that was the last time I watched a Netflix because of a recommendation.

    The reality of these shows is not that much different to when Hollywood or comedy central or SNL depict our digital behaviour, often we laugh at ourselves but we don't change our fundamental reality.

    Those people who think about life will probably enjoy Black Mirror and get them thinking, which is what they are good at - and those that just dose on media for feeling - then that will pass right through them as "interesting" entertainment.

    I will hold my own judgement and see if Black Mirror is as good as the write up review on this buzz. In fact I will do that right now - that is if that series streams in my country. Netflix are getting very antsy these days about VPN, so that is one more reason that helps me watch less rather than more Netflix shows.

    #1 It really hasn't changed that much. Soho had jazz bars back in the 60's. One jazz bar features heavily in Chapter 1 of my book. The real change occurred in the 70's when the Hong Kongers came to London and opened up Chinese restaurants in Soho. They are still there. My mother opened the first Japanese restaurant in Europe (in St. Christopher's Place), and her second was in Soho. There may be fewer sex shops now, but it looks the same as it did 30 yrs ago. In my mind, London is one of the least transformed cities in the World (and that is a good thing).

    #2 It does sound like gentrification but I have not been in London for some years, so I do need to check out Soho and see for myself the changes. I do know that San Fransisco is losing its colour due to massive gentrification and there this is the effects of startup capital and technology companies moving in and bulldozing the existing culture, and displacing communities that have lived there for several generations. In the end if Soho totally gentrifies we can amalgamate Mayfair, Soho, Belgravia and Westminster and rename it Snobbyville.

    Soho is an example of an amazing transformation. 40 years ago it was the seedy red light district of London and today it is the complete antithesis of that - a trendy and sophisticated area. Since I have not lived in England for the last 25 years, I have no idea of what it is like now, but it had begun to change quite dramatically even by the time I had emigrated in 1992. By then it became less and less like the place it was in the prior decades.

    Even for my highly networked mind delving into the world Christian Gรกlvez occupies was challenging because it has so many layers.

    From the video above I can see his interest in Leonardo Da Vinci but in 2007 he also formed a company called 47Ronin. This interests me because In 2013 Hollywood made the movie about the 47 Ronin - which is a Samurai history and not a Classical Renaissance history - but I could not find more about why the Ronin was chosen as the company name.

    I then found an online hoax - so that told me that this is a big name in Spain. It is probably like me coming to Canada and finding out the first time who Justin Bieber was.

    1 Million people pay respect in online hoax

    Studying the man is more of an interest to me than the following or fame anyone has acquired. I am fascinated in his thinking and depth of understanding from Christian Gรกlvez knowledge of Da Vinci. That everything other than the hoax was in Spanish made it challenging for me to learn more.

    I did see the children's books, so that was another facet of Christian Gรกlvez and being that I what I found was multi-dimensional in style, it is clear to me from this why Da Vinci fascinates Gรกlvez so much - because his interests are equally as varied - but having studied more I still can't figure out his connection with the 47 Ronin.

    The Ronin is about having one's status and honour taken away and meaning in life - if the Samurai code is a personal brand, the Ronin is the antithesis of that brand - that is what fascinates me most, I can see his link to this http://prodimage.images-bn.com/pimages/9788415678236_p0_v3_s192x300.jpg but I cannot determine his personal connection to the Chushingura https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/1453485885/image.jpg

    Even for my highly networked mind it was a challenge piecing together all the facets that I can then sit back and learn from.

    The immediate facet was this interest he has in Leonardo Da Vinci but in 2007 he called his company 47Ronin. In 2013 Hollywood made the movie about the 47 Ronin - so I wanted to know more about why the Ronin fascinated him, whereas is passion is in the classical renaissance period and in particular with Da Vinci.

    Even though he is fully alive and not because Javier says so, I would like to pass my convalescences to those who had declared Christian Gรกlvez had died this year. Talk about Spanish fake news !!!

    1 Million people pay respect in online hoax

    It matters not one bit to me how a historian, and a man who wants to teach children about the genius of Da Vinci became a Spanish celebrity pop idol. That is Christian's business. Those pop mags are more obsessed that he made 46 million year-to-date January 2017 - but I am not interested in his fame or money, I am fascinated in his thinking and depth of understanding of both Da Vinci and historical knowledge .

    It is a barrier having to translate with very little on the web in English, but it is great that he is connecting with beBee. I for one will pronounce him alive, well and full of life.
