Te-Papa

My Thought on Moana

I cried so many times during this movie you wouldnt believe. Here is an unorganized list of why this movie was beautiful to me in every way.

1. Auli'i is my friend. I love her to death and hearing her speak and sing in this movie was not only surreal but incredibly emotional for me. Think of it as a proud mother but x10.

2. They brought up our lost art of wayfinding. Wayfinding is a genuinely lost art that has only recent begun again thanks to the Hokule'a. This is so important, and to see that Moana was so excited and shocked to find out her people were voyagers was truly amazing because I feel the exact same way. “Why did we stop?”

3. Maui. Maui is a myth that I grew up hearing about in betime stories. Everything that they talked about I had already known, and to see someone who you grew up learning about come to life in such a beautiful way was truly amazing. Not to mention I had completely forgotten that Maui didnt come from a God and a Mortal, he was given his power from the gods, but was born of mortal parents. I had forgoten my own mo'olelo.

4. Gramma Tala. Tala was the only one to support Moana’s call to the ocean. Many Polynesians feel this call to the ocean. It surrounds us, and it brings life. If theres a feeling I can relate to most its my need to be on the water, which is why I paddle. Also, theway they showed Tala’s aumakua (spirit animal) sent chills down my spine it was beautiful.

5. Te Fiti. In Hawaiian Te Fiti is Papa, mother earth. Watching Papa come to life after Te Ka was silenced made me cry. Papa gave me my islands, gave me my culture, and gave me my people. I love her. Also watching her lay back town to form her island was amazing because that’s also a big part of many mo'olelo- that gods and godesses lay down to form mountains and islands, and are in an eternal slumber beneath us.

6. The music. The music was beautiful. And having songs fully or partially written in Samoan(?) was amazing to listen to. To have disney publish a movie with a soundtrack with untranslated Polynesian in it was amazing of them.

7. The animation of hula. There wasn’t much of it, but the hula was beautiful and again made me so fucking happy when I saw it.

Not rly a reason but heres a nice tip: Moana doesn’t simply mean ocean, we could use Kai for that. Kai is the part of the ocean you can see. Moana is the deep sea. The sea that we voyage on.

There’s really a lot lot more but this is all I got for now yw here u go~

Nunca has sido la “princesa de papa”, la “niña de sus ojos”, al contrario, parece que eres un problema constante en su vida, y te recuerda que si no estuvieras con él su vida sería más fácil y mejor.
Tienes un papá agresivo, cambiante, que te humilla, duda de ti y nunca ha sabido lo que es respetarte.
Al final te acostumbras.
Perdón papá

Perdón si no fui buena hija , perdón por no obedecerte ,perdón por no hacer bien las cosas, perdón por no cumplir , perdón por contestarte , perdón por  mentirte ,perdón por esforzarme para que te sintieras orgulloso de mi , perdón por estar triste y mentirte al decirte que estoy feliz , perdón por ser tonta , perdón por no ser la hija perfecta , perdón por ser una niña que no sirve para nada ,perdón por estar pegada al celular esperando que el imbécil que me hace sufrir me responda, perdón por salir con mis amigos , perdón por fumar , perdón por tomar , perdón por dormir mucho , perdón por no hacer nada , perdón por no quererme a mi misma , perdón por esconderle cosas, perdón por no ser lo que tu quieres o por lo que te sientas orgulloso , perdón por sentirme sola , perdón por no contarte todo , perdón por hacer que pienses que me alejo ,perdón por enamorarme de alguien , perdón por quedarme callada , perdón por confiar en gente que no debía , perdón por llorar en la noche y al otro día hacer como si nada paso , perdón por  alisarme el pelo  sabiendo que no te gusta , perdón por preocuparme por mi misma ,perdón por decir que iría a un lugar y no estaba ahí …

en fin , perdón por decepcionarte.

Feliz Día del Padre

A papá,
que sin darse cuenta
todos los días 
se hace querer un poco más.

A papá, 
un héroe sin capa,
que me alza en sus brazos,
y me dice que todo esta bien.

A papá,
que cerca o lejos,
se siente igual de cálido
el “te quiero” de sus labios.

A papá,
mi hombre favorito,
le queda corto
un te amo. 

A mi papá,
y de corazón,
yo le deseo el mejor día,
todos los días.
