Sometimes, we do parenting right (or an explanation of hyphenated surnames)

In the car tonight. Aub was talking about a school mate whose last name is hyphenated (like Keys-Johnson, or whatever) and she suddenly stopped and asked why some people have two last names.

I began explaining how sometimes girls keep their maiden names when they get married (also had to explain what a maiden name was) and connect them to their married names. We also explained that sometimes the girl just keeps her name and in some cases, it’s even possible for the man to change his name.

She asked “What happens when two girls get married?” And we told her it could be any of the same combinations and same with when two boys get married. We used our friends as an example that neither of them changed their last names.

Just like that. What happens with the names when two girls get married? No big deal.

Cool.

J’appelle poésie cet envers du temps, ces ténèbres aux yeux grands ouverts, ce domaine passionnel où je me perds, ce soleil nocturne, ce chant maudit aussi bien qui se meurt dans ma gorge où sonnent à la volée les cloches de provocation… j’appelle poésie cette dénégation du jour, où les mots disent aussi bien le contraire de ce qu’ils disent que la proclamation de l’interdit, l’aventure du sens ou du non-sens, ô paroles d’égarement qui êtes l’autre jour, la lumière noire des siècles, les yeux aveuglés d’en avoir tant vu, les oreilles percées à force d’entendre, les bras brisés d’avoir étreint de fureur ou d’amour le fuyant univers des songes, les fantômes du hasard dans leurs linceuls déchirés, l’imaginaire beauté pareille à l’eau pure des sources perdues…

J’appelle poésie la peur qui prend ton corps tout entier à l’aube frémissante du jouir… Par exemple

l’amour l’amour l’amour l’amour l’amour […]

(Ainsi se termine le texte écrit en 1974 par Aragon pour ouvrir le tome IV de l’OEuvre poétique complet.)

"Happy birthday my little angel, I can’t believe it’s been a whole year already. You’re becoming such a big girl. Although its hard for me to let go of the little baby Aubs, I love watching you learn and explore as you pass all these milestones. It’s crazy to think that a year ago today, I was giving birth to my perfect little girl. From the moment I saw you, something in me changed. I grew up & matured, I realized that family is more important than anything. Holding you in my arms was the best moment of my life, i had such a feeling of completeness. it was a little scary knowing you depended soley on me, but mama was willing to do whatever it took to give you the life you deserve, baby. i had a lot to learn, i still do, but I’m glad i get to learn with you. i couldn’t ask for a better baby. I never thought id know how to put someone else’s needs before my own but you’re more important to me than anything & i will always protect you. I had finally learned what true love was when I thought I already knew. But I didn’t. i knew the moment i felt you kick & heard your heartbeat at the doctors office, and when i held you & felt your skin against mine. I may have had you at a young age & you may not have been planned, but I do t regret it, I wouldn’t change it for the world. I can’t picture my life without you. You are everything to mama, my whole life. You changed me for the better. Sometimes mama is sad for you that you don’t have your daddy in your life but you have so many people that love you. Everyone says I gave up a lot when I had you, but just looking in those bright eyes makes it all worth it. You didn’t ruin my future, you merely have me a new one. A better one. Now i have more motivation to better myself, for you. mama wants you to have the best life possible & im trying so hard ti give it you cause you deserve it. The sleekness nights, the poopy diapers, & tantrums are all worth it when I see that adorable smile. It’s crazy thinking you went from a little 8lb. 3oz baby to the big girl you are today. I love everything about you’ve on your beautiful red hair, to your little “stinky feets” You have such a personality in that little body, mamas attitude definitely shows;) I’m so lucky to be the one you call mama, & I hope some day you’ll be proud to call me mama. Mama would die in a heartbeat just so you didn’t have to feel an ounce of pain. I would do anything for my boogs. You are the best thing that ever happened to me sweet girl. Mama loves you more than life itself.” - Maddy

No se culpe a nadie de mi muerte. Me suicido porque de no hacerlo, seguramente, con el tiempo, te olvidaría. Y no quiero.

Mayan Influences on current Guatemalan Culture

Whilst looking into Guatemala’s prominent mayan history i wanted to see what influences current day Guatemala still had mayan culture.

there is a clear contrast between the poor mayan villages in the rural highlands, and the urban and relatively wealthy Mestizos population. (combination of european and native american)

Worry Dolls

They are very small and colourful dolls that a person (usually a child) who cannot sleep due to worrying cab express their worries to and then place it under their pillow before going to sleep. According to folk law, the doll is thought to worry in the person place, thereby permitting the person to sleep peacefully.

Weaving

They are known for their brightly coloured yarn-based textiles, which are woven into capes, skirts, shirts, blouses and dresses. each village has its own distinctive pattern, making it possible to distinguish a persons home town.
