Today’s Holiday: Baekjung


Today’s Holiday:
Baekjung

In Korea, the 15th, or full moon day, of the seventh lunar month is observed with Buddhist and folk agricultural traditions. Baekjung means “one hundred kinds,” referring to the great number of fruits, vegetables, and grains that flourish at this time of year. In farming areas, people celebrate this day as a “weeding party” often called Homi Ssisi or Homi ssiggi—”hoe cleaning,” since, by this time in the season, most of the hard work of farming is completed. The farm worker judged to be the hardest worker is feted with a parade around the village.: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Today’s Birthday: Pierre de Fermat (1601)


Today’s Birthday:
Pierre de Fermat (1601)

A founder of modern probability theory and number theory, Fermat was a French jurist and amateur mathematician. A contemporary of Descartes, he independently discovered the basic principles of analytic geometry. Yet he is best remembered for the assertion now known as Fermat’s Last Theorem, which he scribbled in the margin of a book along with a note stating that he could have shown it to be true but lacked the room in which to write the proof. For how many years did the theorem remain unproven?: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Charles Darwin

The scene, as beheld through the hazy atmosphere of this climate, is one of great interest; if, indeed, a person, fresh from sea, and who has just walked, for the first time, in a grove of cocoa-nut trees, can be a judge of anything but his own happiness.: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

But this week, the whole world could watch the first contact of such an isolated tribe members with civilized people. The meeting took place near the Envira River on the border between Peru and Brazil. Most likely, the seven Indians were forced to flee from the Peruvian border after a violent confrontation with armed foreigners, they have burned homes and shot them elderly relatives.

Although live isolated, they came out of the rainforests of Peru to seek help after they have fallen victims of an onslaught of drug traffickers and illegal logging, remaining thus homeless.

Armed with spears and bows huge and almost naked natives speak in a language that is part of the language Panoan understood by a member of the local tribe Jaminawa who said they had used words meaning “good” and that they complained of hunger. Two tribesmen have crossed the river and accepted some bananas provided by the delegation sent by the Brazilian Indian Affairs Department (Funai).

Vangelis – I’ll Find My Way Home Lyrics
You ask me where to begin
Am I so lost in my sin
You ask me where did I fall
I’ll say I can’t tell you when
But if my spirit is lost
How will I find what is near
Don’t question I’m not alone
Somehow I’ll find my way home

My sun shall rise in the east
So shall my heart be at peace
And if you’re asking me when
I’ll say it starts at the end
You know your will to be free
Is matched with love secretly
And talk will alter your prayer
Somehow you’ll find you are there.

Your friend is close by your side
And speaks in far ancient tongue
A seasons wish will come true
All seasons begin with you
One world we all come from
One world we melt into one

Just hold my hand and we’re there
Somehow we’re going somewhere
Somehow we’re going somewhere

You ask me where to begin
Am I so lost in my sin
You ask me where did I fall
I’ll say I can’t tell you when
But if my spirit is strong
I know it can’t be long
No questions I’m not alone
Somehow I’ll find my way home
Somehow I’ll find my way home
Somehow I’ll find my way home
Somehow I’ll find my way home

“My Skin” lyrics
NATALIE MERCHANT LYRICS

Take a look at my body
Look at my hands
There’s so much here
That I don’t understand

Your face saving promises
Whispered like prayers
I don’t need them

I’ve been treated so wrong
I’ve been treated so long
As if I’m becoming untouchable

Contempt loves the silence
It thrives in the dark
With fine winding tendrils
That strangle the heart

They say that promises
Sweeten the blow
But I don’t need them
No, I don’t need them

I’ve been treated so wrong
I’ve been treated so long
As if I’m becoming untouchable

I’m a slow dying flower
Frost killing hour
The sweet turning sour
And untouchable

Oh, I need
The darkness
The sweetness
The sadness
The weakness
Oh, I need this

I need
A lullaby
A kiss goodnight
Angel sweet
Love of my life
Oh, I need this

I’m a slow dying flower
Frost killing hour
The sweet turning sour
And untouchable

Do you remember the way
That you touched me before
All the trembling sweetness
I loved and adored?

Your face saving promises
Whispered like prayers
I don’t need them
No, I don’t need them

I need
The darkness
The sweetness
The sadness
The weakness
I need this

I need
A lullaby
A kiss goodnight
The angel sweet
Love of my life
Oh, I need this

Well, is it dark enough?
Can you see me?
Do you want me?
Can you reach me?
Or I’m leaving

You better shut your mouth
Hold your breath
Kiss me now you’ll catch your death
Oh, I mean it
Oh, I need this.
