Second Annual Worldwide Event

Includes Musicians and Poets Striving for Global Change

~

This Year’s 100 Thousand Poets for Change Adds Musicians;

600 Events Planned in More Than 110 Countries

_____

Santa Rosa, Calif. (July XX, 2012) – September 29, 2012 marks the second annual 100 Thousand Poets for Change, an event that brings poets, artists and musicians (new this year) around the world together to call for environmental, social, and political change. Voices will be heard globally through concerts, readings, workshops, flash mobs and demonstrations that each focus on their specific area of concern, within the framework of peace and sustainability, such as war, ecocide, racism and censorship.

“Peace and sustainability is a major concern worldwide, and the guiding principle for this global event,” said Michael Rothenberg, Co-Founder of 100 Thousand Poets for Change. “It’s amazing to see how many people have joined in around the world to speak out for causes they believe in, and to see so much heart and creativity expressed in their diverse approaches to this event.”

Participants are hoping, through their actions and events, to seize and redirect the political and social dialogue of the day and turn the narrative of civilization towards peace and sustainability. Those that want to get involved can visit www.100tpc.com to find or plan an event near them.

“This grass roots movement has arisen largely due to the impact of social media,” said Co-Founder Terri Carrion. “We’re really excited about the events we’ve got planned this year.”

:Ok, shortly after d handball match Macedonia : Slovenia where we #win 28:27 and take d 5th place on d European Championship, I’ll not speak about d open door for d Olympic Games because this is not d topic that I write for anyway few sentences are just OK and d victory too. 😉

.

.

:What a want to mention is d second part, edition of collecting signatures against d evils that want to stop d freedom of Internet, sharing etc. If u want to read more I already wrote on my blog in few post’s about everything that concerns Us about this still vital topic/ #problem [:So I do! #protest #support freedom of Internet! & :72 hours left; warnINg!]

.
:Here is the ((( LINK ))) where it’s important to give ur signature because this is d only petition that is possible to help U raise our voice and stop d process.

.

.

:ACTA is one more offensive against the sharing of culture on the Internet. ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) is an agreement secretly negotiated by a small “club” of like-minded countries (39 countries, including the 27 of the European Union, the United States, Japan, etc).

.

Negotiated instead of being democratically debated, ACTA bypasses parliaments and international organizations to dictate a repressive logic dictated by the entertainment industries.
.
[ACTA] – ‘The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement‘ is a proposed plurilateral agreement for the purpose of establishing international standards on intellectual property rights enforcement.

ACTA would establish a new international legal framework that would create its “own governing body outside existing international institutions” such as – the World Trade Organization (WTO), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) or the United Nations.

An open letter signed by many organizations, including Consumers International, EDRi (27 European civil rights and privacy NGOs), the Free Software Foundation (FSF), the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), ASIC (French trade association for web 2.0 companies), and the Free Knowledge Institute (FKI), states that “the current draft of ACTA would profoundly restrict the fundamental rights and freedoms of European citizens, most notably the freedom of expression and communication privacy.”
.
.

I already sign this petition in d first circle but is really up to Us if we want to stop this virtual terror. they act like they invent this magical tool for connecting. let’s show them that this connection is like it is because of all of Us and that we are not goin’ to stop and spread d word all over d world. as one comment in youtube says:

“the governments should be afraid of their people, not vice versa. without us, these f*ing pigs would have no power, so it is up to us to show em who’s boss.”

:I don’t know why but I just think that this is d proper first post for d start of this 2o12 on this blog. I had d idea to share this two videos since last night, few hours after d big change but I was thinking is silly to share things without explaining them [d reason why I didn’t post them earlier in d day] but anyway I think u’ll find d parallel that I see here, d messages that are mixing between.

But really if u watch them u’ll understand what I would write about and why, it’s era where d telepathy is growing, d common observations & understandings are attracting each other more then  ever.

Bless, bliss & light dear visitors, readers of my world.. happy New Cycle!

The Great Dictator's Speech _Charlie Chaplin

.

I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone – if possible – Jew, Gentile – black man – white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness – not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way.

Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost….
The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men – cries out for universal brotherhood – for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world – millions of despairing men, women, and little children – victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people.

To those who can hear me, I say – do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed – the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. …..

Soldiers! don’t give yourselves to brutes – men who despise you – enslave you – who regiment your lives – tell you what to do – what to think and what to feel! Who drill you – diet you – treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men – machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate – the unloved and the unnatural! Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!

In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written: “the Kingdom of God is within man” – not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people have the power – the power to create machines. The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.

Then – in the name of democracy – let us use that power – let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world – a decent world that will give men a chance to work – that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfill that promise. They never will!

Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people! Now let us fight to fulfill that promise! Let us fight to free the world – to do away with national barriers – to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness. Soldiers! in the name of democracy, let us all unite!

:if u have something to tell about d post or some positive message for d New Year ur comments will be appreciated 🙂
.

.drivin’ d new [for me] :fb #timeline_

Leave a comment

I definitely want to write few words for d new [for me] timeline on facebook. I just update my profile and pretty much like d concept & d look. Interesting design indeed, I get confused for some elements, like double message button [success, One from now] etc..

.

.

d first status update that I wrote goes like this:

:

“:actually, I like d fb #timeline_ [first status]. ..even that it looks d same [maybe needs that ‘edit post’ ]: when u want to correct something” 🙂 

So, I have two parts of my post till now and two things that fb still need to fix. There are many more if we look closer into this platform, but we’ll speak about that some other time. I actually start writing this post cause I wanted to mention that I haven’t wrote till now any post about facebook [or maybe one, two in this 10 years experience in blogging] that this platform is dealing very good till now. Nothing can be perfect, very rare excellent but this fb team is doin their development right as it should. The process of evolving, and adapting every time on different public needs can be difficult. Kudos for their work, for d implementation of their strategy, and just small call for correction in some special aspects as: communication with d global virtual community, understanding their need more, listening what they can offer et c’set tout!

.

.

:It’s a way to new experience; I have always say that the people don’t need to ignore d way to develop some new technical skills and speak loudly about d negative aspects but as well for d good one. Great that they made it “public” and now everyone can use it 😉

.

:RedWriteWeb today writes smt ..
[I didn't know this I just check whats new on d topic] :)

.

Facebook’s new Timeline is rolling out to the public, offering users the chance to upgrade to “a new kind of profile.” The new profile was revealed at Facebook’s f8 developer conference on September 22. The rollout began in New Zealand on December 6, and it’s now spreading worldwide.

:

:do u use #timeline, what do u think about? Do you know smt about d better use of this change, about this or something else:::You can leave ur comments below, subscribe on facebook  or on :d white b[l]og ::: #facebook page

:are u prepared dear friendS?

:do we dream d same dream?

.It is time for change

We have just started, you are one of the first people to receive the message. Thank you for being here and for sharing this with the people you love. This is for you, me and the whole planet

I want peace, happiness and harmony in my life and in the World I live in. I know you want this too.

Do we all follow our path? Is that d real one? We pas trough times of diversity where almost every one of Us is trying to find d best true for Himself. Do we want to be more aware in future? The Time Is Now! Since when I was kid I listen d messages that like inner secret voices are changing d state of mind in more positive way, in more counciosness way where we become more awere for d social problems that we have and d global crizes that destroy d circle of evolution.

But d evolution can go slowly but never be stop. Thousands and thousands of people all around d globe are open for d changes in d system, in d way of living, in d way of respecting d natural sources that we have less and less. Less is more! We come to a moment where we don’t just talk about d future and about d worry that we all have deep inside us. We come to a moment when we push for d changes that we want. We are d change that we want to see in d world! We are nature!.. aren’t we nature? D cosmic spirits and d whole Absolute is supporting d energy that comes from d Planet Earth and share positive vibration in d Universe. We all stand for It!

It should be like that tomorrow 11.11.11. when all of Us so-called brothers & sisters from d Universe connect with our positive thoughts via meditation and pray for better tomorrow, better future.

The world connect to celebrate the first wave of cosmic light that comes straight from the Creator. On 11.11.11. (Friday) in 11:11 o’clock people from whole planet will meditate against earthquakes, flood and other „natural“ disasters that we start meet recently. We will meditate against all this negative energy that circles in d eater and causes all this disasters. We’ll try to transform it in positive in a hope to brings Us more peaceful and calm life full with love.

And not only this, this day will be special cause all of Us will be able to connect and download high frequency of information that will help u to see and observe the things as they really are. With pure, crystal clear eyes! Everyone of Us is searching for this in some way. Even for those who are skeptic and arrogant I really hope that they will also have at least few minutes to participate with few positive thoughts, cause is really up to all of Us. We should all now that nothing bad will happened and that all of this will just make a positive input in d energy that floats in our system.

.

Tomorrow for me is specially strange day. I have my BIRTHday tomorrow and imagine I was born one hour before 11:11 o’clock in d morning. Probably after d birth cry in that time 28 years ago it was my first meditation/ sleep. Deep inside my heart and soul I wish to be born a strong though for all of d mankind to be reborn. To become awaken for all d problems that we make by our self and to try to change our attitude and personality. I wish to be changed, I wish to hear more open, to be more participative, more awaken. All of you who are reading this, point ur finger to me. ..and make d wish!..so d energy from d wish returns to u 3 times stronger. (u point one finger to me, but d other 3 are pointing d same time in u!) .. and let’s we all Change, in Better!

There will be always d one screaming in Us and d other that is acting with u as friend before u go to sleep (sometimes). The harmony and d balance between d mind and d soul is d most important issue/ cause now, our inner voices will help Us, make d duality balanced as d line that is made when d sea and d sky are kissing each other when d sun wakes up and go to sleep. Our minds can be our friends, doesn’t mean that they always scream. ..but first we need to learn them how to listen d inner voice, and to listen him and trust in Him. It’s not easy to put ur mind in serve, but finally after we menage this. ..d love will float inside/ outside Us like perfect swimming of galaxies in d sea universe.

  • We need to meditate!
  • We need to think about love!
  • The Universe needs that! The Planet Earth deserves that!

Remove energy blockage to downloading higher frequencies of ascension, joy, peace, love and abundance.

.

We have learn many aspects of our self from this evolutionary journey and now we know d fastest way to change things. It’s to raise a vibration and connect to d truth who we are. U know who u are? Have u reconnect to ur true nature, to d reason why u’re here on Earth this time? Have u realized ur purpose for being here? Do u value ur vibration? Join d opening of d Divine Will! This is maybe d final step in d evolutionary transformation of d mankind. 11.11.11. Is an activation point for d energies of d divine within all d humanity. People from all over d world are gathering to transmit this energies to d rest of d world, it is time for Us to remember how true is nature. We are eternal spiritual beings born of Source Energy. When we connect to our truth and see beyond our personality self, we discover the magnificence of our being and the inner love, beauty, innocence and worth that is contained within each of us.

Can you feel the shift?

Almost every one of Us tomorrow will feel this wave of energy. All of d vibration will put Us in state of understanding d position that we rally have in this Universe.

There are thousands of causes that wait to be moved forward on better, maybe it’s up to part of ur energy to be better. Why to ask urself is it like that or not. D soul knows whats better, join d 11.11.11 celebration as my only wish for my BIRTHday, as ur only will for better tomorrow. Don’t hesitate to spread this message. If u done this with 11 friends of you and they do d same, d message will be stronger, d energy and d vibration higher. ..it is so simple!

Thank You ALL!

Bless and lights ~

#twitterartexhibit in Norway

Leave a comment

This is call for artists organized by the Norwegian colorist – expressionist artist @DavidSandumArt. He send this call on twitter for A real life Twitter art exhibit! and his main idea was to getter artists from all over, who will create card/s with their style of work and support the organizer in making a big exhibit in the city library in Moss, Norway. The library (bibliotek in Norwegian) is located in a part of town called Møllerbyen that used to be part of the towns industry (years ago).

I really like his idea, because he wants to make the expo, and our art works to be for sale but the money to be used in charity. The prize for all the cards will be the same, that was also one of my basic motivation to participate. And also 140 artist (the first idea), call via twitter in 140 characters, the final result, amazing idea that I waned to support.

..so far for the #twitterartexhibit he received art from 173 artists (few days left until the deadline, November 27th, and the wall that is made inside the Bibliotek it will be able to show 240 cards.

In the beginning I didn’t know what to send from the things that I constantly made here in France but most of them didn’t fit the size, so I decide to make one week of dynamic creative producing so I can have few works from which I can choose which to send.

I made about 20 paintings/ cards, acrylic on paper-board and for final there were 3 that were telling we are the one that we’ll go. The other one that are part of this collection (private for now) you can see it here ~ #artExhibit.

This are my friends, my characters that will present @kihuPotru on this expo.

I_Go. I; I_Go. II; I_Go. III;

In meanwhile, I had one more idea in my mind. Sometimes I made art/ painting workshops with the kids that are coming in the association Jacques Prevert. For me was perfect idea, in perfect time. I was doing my cards when the kids were inspired to paint with me also. I didn’t wait a second after I had 4-5 kids around me. I take big paper and give to all of them one color in big 1l bottle. Every kid was having one color in his hand and brush in the other.

I explain to them that I want to have one big abstract painting made by all of them in 140 seconds. My idea was also in 140 moves, I had already 9 kids on which I was trying to tell to don’t make more then 10 moves, so I can reach the number 140, not all of them listen and will stop with 10 moves. 🙂

It was workshop like start, go, go, go..STOP!

We repeat the process on 3 big paper-boards. For the new paper they were changing their colors, so they can have opportunity to express them selves in different way. I catch that in the box with brushes there were also some teeth brushes and some of the kids in their hands were having them. Pretty experimental for me, so happy about the idea for the exhibition as for the idea of this action painting workshop were the kids were making collective pieces of art.

peaceful day, # PeaceOneDay!

Leave a comment

(the post is written two days ago, firstly on my other blog on Macedonian)

In time, everyone should watch The Day After Peace

Nick Fraser, Commissioning Editor, Factuals, BBC

Good day. I hope you’re well, peaceful .. to Be in peace, topic for which I’ll pounce few words so I can continue keeping myself peacefully. I have written before about this topic, for this this day, mostly I’m talking about. It would be boring to start rows with the rules should that should be follow in order to live in harmony with people, animals, nature ..

Today, when is global day of peace we can find everywhere links to articles and posts made by people who share their own experiences on how to live with peace and understanding. How to nurture human relationships, to carry about friends, neighbors, loved ones. How to learn to tolerate, to accept different cultures and so on. (Not to turn into some basic text for human ethics)

The idea of the organisation called  Peace one Day aims to raise the awareness and its campaign to create one day of Global World Peace on 21 September 2010. For now, ‘International day of Peace’ is on 23 place on Google search [not any more :D], and it shows that this day is not so little information for the people around the world.
The organization or association of citizens, whatever, like you want, Peace One Day organize various activities for this day. Collect donations, blog about, inform. We want everyone to raise awareness of how important the peace like whole for the people is, for everyone, no concessions. Until tonight google ratings will certainly be better if we see that just a few hour ago it was on 38 place.

Peace one Day was created by filmmaker, Jeremy Gilley who has a mission to establish the first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence with a fixed calendar date; and so 21 September was born. Fantastically, the 192 member states of the United Nations share Jeremy’s vision and unanimously adopted 21 September as an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence. The 21 September is about creating peace between nations and importantly about non-violence in our homes, communities and schools, making this day relevant to us all.

From this organization, that of the founder, @ JeremyGilley million ideas coming how this day could be develop in future. From day to pass week, then in month, in life where as aware people we try to keep the peace where it is and to try to change the situation in the war zones, civilizations, nations, traditions. ..

In collaboration with Puma, he inspires people to organize football tournaments, very simple celebration of this day. People from all over are running today, rejoice, animate their dearest.
To be so peaceful, so you could all play football, “said Jeremy in one of the many magazines where he was speaking this days.

I said I supported this event, as it should, as it’s right. I play football with some of the kids at the school where I work. Not much, but enough to laugh and go in the cars of their parents happy. I think this is enough, from physical aspect this is very, very. I mean football! 🙂

It would be so GOoD if is so peaceful everywhere, I’m sending positive thoughts in the places in this seed of planet where the kids don’t sleep, their mothers cry and their fathers, one by one they are gone ..

Let every day be Peace day!

PeaceOneDay on twitter
PeaceOneDay on facebook

last news from their page is: @PeaceOneDay have been awarded a Peace Prize! [link]

I use to write before for the World Peace also, I support in the last year the International Day of Peace or 21 September. I don’t know why this organization is making new date for the same aim but from other side is good that there will be two days in which the main stream mediums will speak about Global Peace.
