'Feeling unreal' revisited



En la Navidad de 2002, Codorniu lanzó un spot con una ambientación musical creada ad hoc de 1 minuto. La música era de Xavier Capellas, la letra de Guy Wenger, la realización del vídeo de Sergi Capellas y la voz de Xavier Casellas (parece broma pero es así).

Este anuncio causó gran confusión entre los admiradores de Ben Harper, algunos juraban que la canción era suya, mientras que otros decían que habían escuchado todas sus canciones y no podían encontrarla, aunque estaban seguros de que era él quien cantaba.

Tanta actividad en Internet obligó a los autores a hacer una versión de 3 minutos. Todo, incluso el público, fue grabado en el estudio Cool Tunes.

As I Began to Love Myself

As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering
are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth.
Today, I know, this is "authenticity".

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody
as I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time
was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this
person was me. Today I call it "respect".

As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life,
and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow.
Today I call it "maturity".

As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance,
I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens
at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm.
Today I call it "self-confidence".

As I began to love myself I quit steeling my own time,
And I stopped designing huge projects for the future.
Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do
And that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm.
Today I call it "simplicity".

As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for
my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew
me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism.
Today I know it is "love of oneself".

As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since
I was wrong less of the time.
Today I discovered that is "modesty".

As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worry
about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening.
Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “fulfillment”.

As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me
and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my
mind became a valuable ally.
Today I call this connection “wisdom of the heart”.

We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems
with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing
new worlds are born.
Today I know that is “Life”!

The poem "As I began to love myself" is often accompanied by the statement that Charlie Chaplin recited it on his 70th birthday on April 16, 1959, but this is completely false. It was actually written by Kim MacMillen.

Nothing Can Stop Us Now



We've got years ahead of us
We've got people who care for us
We've got Sunday morning coffees in the sun
We've got Monday night television

We've got years of happiness
We've got decades of laughter ahead of us
We've got Christmases with family by the sea
We've got wine and vintage cheddar

Yeah, I have everything a man could ever want
And all I'll ever need is you

Nothing can stop us now
Only the good times left
Nothing can stop our love
Except terminal illness
Or sudden accidental death

- Tim Minchin

Ser humano salva vidas



"El ser humano puede ser egoísta, intolerante y cruel pero lo único capaz de salvar un ser humano es otro ser humano".

Con estas palabras Médicos Sin Fronteras lanza la campaña 'Ser humano salva vidas', un mensaje sobre la fuerza del ser humano y de nuestra capacidad de ayudar a personas que, de otra forma, no tendrían ninguna oportunidad.

Todos nosotros, trabajadores humanitarios, socios y colaboradores de Médicos Sin Fronteras y tú, formamos parte de una misma cadena que alivia el sufrimiento del ser humano.

Para que siga siendo posible, nuestros Aurora, Esperanza, Llanos y Javier nos proponen un nuevo reto: salvar 100.000 vidas en 100 días.
