Your Spanish Lesson of the Day - "Placido"

"Placido"- placid, as in calm.

"I think I could turn and live with animals,
they're so placid and self-contained,
I stand and look at them and long."

The reflection of the water; it looks like glass.  And the yellow look beautiful. Don't know if this is a sun set or a sun rise 3:)

Estrellas Sobre Chile
"Cuando veo tus cielos, obra de tus dedos,
la luna y las estrellas que tú formaste,
digo: ¿Qué es el hombre para que tengas de él memoria,
y el hijo del hombre para que lo visites?" Salmos 8

Summer is Ending in Northern Chile

"There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been!"  ~Percy Bysshe Shelley

Here's another one with a different twist "happiness is accepting is" - it takes a bit of work to get at but I think it works...

“Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it's not because they enjoy solitude. It's because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.”

"The Courtship Dance of Chile"

Today is Independence Day in Chile, and everywhere Chilenos will be dancing the "Cueca" - a lengthy complicated dance that tells the story of a rooster trying to win the attention of a hen. Well, you get the idea.

"Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.”
Anais Nin

Northern Chile is known worldwide for its amazing Paragliding, due to the combination of both thermal and shore lift. Plus this dream training location called Palo Buque that Philip Maltry set up for practicing. The best part? You can crash and fall gently into this soft powdered sand and break nothing but your ego!

Story
Tagline
Author, Philanthropist, Internet Pioneer, Rancher, living in Chile and the USA
Introduction

I’m an American entrepreneur and author living in Chile. Like most pioneers, I enjoy creating things “ex-nihilo” – starting with nothing and then seeing if I can convert what’s in my head into reality. I’ve done that with buildings, businesses, books, and lots of other things that begin with the letter “b.”  Combined with my propensity to be an “early-adopter” this has led me to birth lots of crazy ideas, and a few good ones as well.  Some of the good ones are shown on the list at the bottom of this page. The stupid ones I try to forget.

I studied Aerospace Engineering in College because I loved to fly, I got my Masters in Marketing because I love to talk, I launched numerous online businesses because I love to move at the speed of the Internet.   I get bored pretty easily, but I never grow tired of mentoring and consulting young talent.

After becoming empty nesters in 2003 we moved to Northern Chile, simply because we liked it here.  My wife and I live on the beach in Iquique, (think San Diego) and I built a working ranch in the desert (think Palm Springs) of Atacama.   

Bragging rights
With the Lord's help, I survived an airplane crash, chemo, and Chile - and lived to tell about them all!
