¿Cómo empezaré mis cantos 

en la noche azul que está llegando? 

En la gran noche mi corazón saldrá afuera, 

las sombras vienen hacia mí sonando. 

En la gran noche mi corazón saldrá afuera.

Made with Instagram

Our day in Phoenix started with warm sunshine, coffee, fresh grapefruit juice, and cuddly cats at my mom’s friends house. First, we went on a 2 mile hike at Papago Park, which is surrounded by sculpted rocky structures with holes in them that remind me of Gaudi art. There are saguaro cacti everywhere, and it’s magical. From there, we walked to the desert botanical garden. If I’m good when I die, then my heaven will have a desert botanical garden for me to hang out in whenever I want. There is so much beauty in blooming cacti, with pollen- covered blossoms that carefully nestle bees like a little cup. My mom’s friend used to be a docent at the garden, so she taught me lots of cool stuff about desert plants. Did you know that Snout Weevil beetles lay their eggs inside the trunk of agave plants and rot out their core? Or that Cholla Cacti are like sea anemone for birds? The birds lay their nest in the Cacti to protect them from other predators. We also went to this KICK ASS taxidermy shop called Curious Nature, which was walking distance from the house we are staying at. I have some great pictures of creepy dead things at the shop that I’ll post later. Then, we had ice cream at Churn and watched the sun set under a mesquite tree. I don’t want to leave. Ever.

anonymous asked:

how do you say "i dont know how to express this feeling" and can you explain the grammar

Okay, so I used the Papago app to translate for me. Since I’m on my work computer I had to type it into google translate which actually got me the same thing. I’m really loving this app you guys, seriously, download it. 

나는 이 감정을 어떻게 표현해야 할지 모르겠다.

Breaking it down, we have the vocabulary first:

나는 - I (with 는 to signify topic)

이 - this

감정을  - feelings, emotions ( with 을 to signify object)

어떻게 - how

표현해야 - comes from the dictionary form 표현하다 which means to express

할 - is a form of 하다 to do

모르겠다 - is a form of 모르다 to not know.

Leading into the grammar and formation of the sentence:

겠다 usually brings with it future tense, however, when used with 모르다 is does not. It’s just a very common and a bit more polite way of saying you don’t know 

-아/어야 하다 is a verb stem indicating that you have to do something. 

I looked towards the great interwebs to help explain the other parts of  the sentence and here’s a little of what I got:

“ When you want to say you don’t know something, you embed a question using 지. In essence what you are saying is “I don’t know the answer to this question.” “  You can find a similar question on the website for a detailed analysis of that example as well.

So following the SOV sentence structure, we have  나는(S) +  감정을(O) +  어떻게(Adv) +  표현해야 할지 모르겠다(V). Which gives you a translation of “I don’t know how to express this feeling.”

the other day i ate some edibles and climbed up these huge rocks in papago park with my friend and we listened to latin jazz while talking about physics and the way the world works and i came home feeling so relaxed….i love my friends

In 1925 Coca Cola made a lucky watch fob in the shape of a swastika with the slogan, “Drink Coca Cola In Bottles 5¢.”.

At that time, the Swastika was still a symbol of ‘Good Luck’ taken from the ’Whirling Log’ used in the US by Native American Navajo, Papago, Apache, and Hopi tribes. 

(Also the symbol used throughout history by the Celts, Indians and Greeks amongst other nationalities and religions).

The word swastika came from the Sanskrit word svastika, meaning any lucky or auspicious object, and in particular a mark made on persons and things to denote auspiciousness, or any piece of luck or well-being.

It is composed of su- meaning “good, well” and asti “being”. Suasti thus means “well-being.” The suffix -ka either forms a diminutive or intensifies the verbal meaning, and suastika might thus be translated literally as “that which is associated with well-being,”.
