un curs de dans care se-ntampla in inima bucurestiului, protejat de-o cladire veche, intr-un mare salon crem, cu ferestre mari, spre lumina, printre fotografiile maxi alb negru ale Bucurestiului interbelic.
un curs la care am asistat asta seara.
o clasa cu clasa.
clasa tangoului argentinian, o lectie exersata in pasi de doi de cateva perechi scapate din rutina corporatista si o lectie explicata cursiv si cam naucitor de profesorul Gilbert Iscu, cazut din alt spatiu, din alte valori, din alt timp, din inima care simte ritmul perechii, a tangoului, a naturaletii cuplului care calca in armonie.
un reminder din lectii simple pe care ni la da tangoul milonga
... ea seduce, ea ii da lui energia de-a face impreuna pasii urmatori...e curgere, nu se incomodeaza unul pe celalat... increderea ii asigura ei confortul si ii lasa lui libertatea de a duce discret dar ferm mai departe, dansul...ei nu ezita pentru ca s-ar opri si-ar pierde ritmul...lasa-te doar de de valul de incredere, natural, nu privi detaliul, picioarele, umarul, just feel.
daca nu stiu ce face doamna mea, nu voi sti nici eu ce sa fac, asa prefer sa fiu atent la ea...nu sta doamna mea pe varfuri tot timpul, e obositor, e alarmant pentru mine, imi transmiti disconfortul tau, te vei dezechilibra si-o sa ne dezechilibram...
daca faci dansul asta doar ca sa arati bine, you're all wrong! il faci ca sa te simti bine...naturaletea e singura care arata bine...ca si increderea...

Lumina care este invatare, jertfa si inviere, adica dragoste.
Buddha, Allah, Dumnezeu, Isus, Osiris, Ahriman sau Ormuz, Zeus sunt doar nume proprii.

India is the world’s largest democracy.
In the last 10,000 years, India has never invaded any country.
Chess was invented in India.
India invented the number system and algebra, trigonometry and calculus originated in India.
India is the largest English-speaking nation in the world.
Sanskrit is the mother of all the European languages.
India was the richest country on earth until the 17th Century when the British invaded.
What’s happened to the economy has been likened to a tsunami as well as an implosion. When the undersea earthquake and subsequent tsunami hit in Indonesia in 2004, the world was stunned by the devastation that took place. It triggered earthquakes around the globe as far away as Alaska. It happened in a very short amount of time.
This kind of event takes shape over a period of time and then erupts with incredible force. What happened this past year is similar in that respect--it’d been brewing for some time. When it hit, it was like a tsunami which caused other economies to start crumbling as well. We are all familiar with that scenario. What we need to do now is deal with it.
The aftermath of a tsunami requires surveying the damage, picking up the pieces and moving on. Some people have bigger losses than others, but everyone has to keep going.
When it comes to implosion, it’s more of a cave-in than a wipe-out, but equally potent. We saw the effects of an implosion watching the towers fall on 9/11. It’s a domino effect. We won’t sink because we can swim, but let’s not go the way of dominos. Let’s be smart and learn to think for ourselves in positioning ourselves for what comes next. Here are a few survival tips:
Pay attention to national and international news and finance coverage at least several times a day, preferably hourly. In volatile times, vigilance is necessary.
Absorb, assess, and then act. Knowledge without action is impotence.
When a tsunami hits, there’s no time for procrastination. Keep your momentum in tune with the times.
Avoid your comfort zone-it’s probably outdated anyway.
If you’re honest, you should know the questions that should be asked, as well as the answers. That’s probably why there’s so much confusion out there today.
Remember The Blitz. That can put things into perspective. Things may be tough and getting tougher, but we’re not being bombed day in and day out either. If you don’t know what The Blitz is, use your time wisely to study WWII to find out.
Is your life half empty or half full? Half is better than zip. Count your blessings.
Realize that fear is the exact opposite of faith.
Resolve to be bigger than your problems. Who’s the boss?
Don’t negate your own power. Whatever you’ve been dealt, know you can deal with it.
Just recently in Paris, the French protested layoffs by barricading the director of a large company in his office and another similar incident happened at Sony in the South of France a couple of weeks ago. It seemed to work--after the ‘bossnapping’ occurred, Sony agreed to talk about severance packages. So far this is a revolt without violence, but it’s a barometer of the times that isn’t a good sign.
Many countries are experiencing economic woes, and the outrage in U.S. has been intense as well. Our greatest fear should be people who have no conscience, and there are obviously people who have no guilt for their behavior or actions, with AIG (short for Arrogance, Incompetence and Greed) as a primo example. President Obama has pointed out that this kind of behavior can’t be tolerated, and I know many people were stunned by their apparent disregard for their fellow citizens, just as they were by Bernard Madoff’s scheme.
As someone who is often the target of criticism, I know there are many reasons for being a target. The biggest reason is being prominent--if you attract attention, that attention can go from good to bad to worse. Anything and everything you do will be noticed. I always remember when the New York Times critic, Herbert Muschamp, reviewed Trump World Tower at the UN Plaza, which had been under serious attack from many angles. He gave it a glowing review and mentioned that “Trump does better when he ignores his critics than when he pays attention to them.” That was a great compliment, especially considering the source.
However, when the livelihoods of people are threatened by people who are just plain greedy, that’s a different scenario. Injustice has become apparent, and our criticism of their behavior is warranted.
by Donald J. Trump , Chairman of Trump University.
E Expects the best from you.
N Never gives up on you or lets you give up on yourself.
T Tells you the truth – even when it hurts.
O Occasionally kicks your butt.
R Really cares about you and your success.

David Ogilvy e cel care ne-a invatat some essentials about brands & life:
The first two fundamental components of that brand would be the quality and diversity of the people, and the quality and class of the operation.
Only first class business, and that in a first class way.
The third component was his belief in brands. Every advertisement is part of the long-term investment in the personality of the brand.
David worked relentlessly to instill the belief that our job is to make advertising that sells, and the advertising that sells best is advertising that builds brands.
