València, clara València

He trobat aquest magnífic vídeo elaborat per Gonçal Vicenç i Bordes a partir d’un poema d’en Toni Mestre, musicat pel cronner i cantautor Lluís Miquel Campos i una selección d’imatges que reflecteixen els antics escenaris on va transitar la meua infantesa i els nous de la Nova València, on s’hi expressen les immenses potencialitats latents del Cap-i-Casal.

D’en Toni Mestre, deixaré un parell d’enllaços que servisquen per a saber qui fou.

D’una banda què es va dir a  Vilaweb el dia del seu traspàs Commoció al valencianisme per la pèrdua de Toni Mestre

I d’una altra l’escrit que vaig fer al present bloc propòsit de la seua pèrdua mentre queien les meues llàgrimes al teclat.   Ací teniu l’enllaç.

Aprofite l’avinentesa per a reclamar que se li dedique un carrer  a la ciutat que ell tant amà, que tan el va vil·lipendiar i tan poc l’ha vindicat.

Els gitanos de Paterna (l’Horta Oest) i la seua lluita: “La Mola és nostra”

Tres anys vaig viure a Paterna, el temps en que cresqueren els meus fills fins a fer-se fadrins. I puc assegurar que el que diuen aquests veïns de la barriada de l’Alborgí en el documental és ben cert. Molts d’ells gitanos, tan valencians com qualsevol altre paternenc.

Que aparega la foto d’un ex-ministre i ex-president de la Generalitat Valenciana no és casual, en marxar a Madrid deixà una societat dedicada a captar terrenys per a benzineres i altres batzucades immobiliàries de resultats inútils. Com el cas de la Mola de Paterna, on els barrancs de la Vallesa, d’En Dolçà (o l’Endolçà com diuen erròniament, crec), el Pla del Pou, la Coma a l’altra banda de l’autovia, etc.

Seria  el “pa per demà, i fam per a sempre”.

Precisament en una zona que va des de Mont-Olivar/Camp-Olivar fins l’Eliana i està agombolada de centres comercials i complexos d’esplai que tant de mal están fent a la concentració de les viles i ciutats com explica Francesc Muñoz al seu llibre  “Urbanalización“.

Urbanalizaci—n MU„OZ.fh11

Darrere de tot això està el COMPLEJO MEDITERRÁNEO, (punxeu l’enllaç per a entendre el projecte) un lloc que volia ser un port franc per a lliure comerç sense taxes ni impostos, bàsicament per a la importació de productes xinesos, en base a fer importacions amb un topall de menys de 100.000 €.  És a dir, estem parlant de construir el complex comercial, com a alternativa a la “zona franca” quatre quilòmetres terra endins del complex comercial més gran de tot Europa: 300.000 metres quadrats, que arranaria 1’4 milions de metres quadrats de Parc Natural.

Sembla ser que el Consell del Botànic, especialmente el Secretari Autonòmic de Medi Ambient i Canvi Climàtic, Julià Álvaro i Prat, ha tombat el projecte per qüestions mediambientals i manca d’abastiment d’aigua sufient per l’enorme volum, però no té rèplica que atraga l’interès de la ciutadania en general com fer un Parc Forestal amb tots els ets i uts, a només quatre quilòmetres fora de la Ciutat de València i proper al complex universitari de Burjassot.

10 raons per a quedar amb un arquitecte :)

10 reasons to date an Architect

Architecture

They know what it means to ‘pay attention to detail’

Be it a design or cooking a meal for you, expect nothing short of perfection

They ace at creative solutions

You think their work is imaginative? Wait till you see your anniversary presents

They are classy as hell

An infinite collection of sleek clothes, nothing is quite as stylish

10 reasons to date an #Architect - Blogs - Archh #Architecture They are #classy as hell An infinite collection of sleek clothes, nothing is quite as stylish 

They can discuss any kind of art, anytime

You’d never have to worry about them being unimpressive in front of your parents

There is no such thing as a fat architect

Or at least a majority of them are super healthy

They know everything there is to know about good coffee

Say hello to your all access pass to the best coffee shops in town

Nothing sounds as impressive as showing off your architect boyfriend/girlfriend

What’s not to be impressed about?

They can handle commitment

5 years of college, 2 years of masters, spending years on a single project – they sure know how to stick with something for the long run

They never give up

They are used to redoing a design till the client is satisfied. Expect the same with every relationship

You deserve to!

Architects are creative, hard working and talented individuals. Doesn’t that sound like someone you deserve to be with?

En rescabalament de Manel Martí i Alfons Montserrat.

En rescabalament de l’honor del meu amic Manel Martí , arquitecte i regidor d’urbanisme, i del batle d’Alcanar -i amic també-, Alfons Montserrat.
Arxiven tan sols ?

On queda el dret a l’honor?

La calúmnia i la difamació banals poden quedar sense pena?

Als falsos denunciants els n’eixirà debades?

O sols era una (mal) calculada estratègia “política” trenada des de les clavegueres de l’Estat per a emporuguir els canareus?

1991. Paiporta, quan quasi ningú no ho feia.

Són tantes les coses compartides durant trenta anys que, tot sabent del seu recte tarannà,  en saber de l’acusació vaig deduir que les acusacions s’estimbarien contra el mur d’ètica que posseeix.

The Architecture Of Insecurity

By Alan Watts

Is it possible to observe without the thinker? I look at everything with
an image, with a symbol, with memory, with knowledge. I look at my
friend, at my wife, at my neighbor, at the boss, with the image which
thought has built. I look at my wife with the image I have about her,
and she looks at me with the image she has about me: the relationship is
between these two images. This is a fact,it’s not an invention on my
part,it’s a fact! Thought has built these symbols, images, ideas. Can I
look, at first, at a tree, at a flower, at the sky, at the cloud,
without an image? The image of the tree is the word I have learned which
gives a certain name to the tree, tells its species and recalls its
beauty. Can I look at that tree, at that cloud, at that flower, without
thought, without the image? That’s fairly easy to do, if you have done
it. But can I look without the image at a human being with whom I am
intimate, whom I consider as wife, husband, child? If I can’t, there is
no real relationship: the only relationship is between the images that
we both have. So, can I look at life, the clouds, the stars, the trees,
the river, the bird on the wing, my wife, my child, my neighbor, this
whole earth -can I look at it all without the image? Though you have
insulted me, though you have hurt me, though you have said nasty things
about me or praised me, can I look at you without the image or the
memory of what you have done and said to me?Do see the importance of
this, because it’s only a mind that has retained the memories of hurt,
of insult, that is ready to forgive, if it is at all inclined that way. A
mind that is not storing up its insults, the flatteries that it
receives, has nothing to forgive or not forgive; therefore there is no
conflict. Thought has created these images, both inwardly and outwardly.
Can the images come to an end, and thought look at everything in life
afresh? If you can do this, you will find that without your conscious,
deliberate effort to change, change has taken place, a radical change.
Most people are ambitious; they want to be somebody: authors, painters,
businessmen, or politicians. Priests want to become archbishops. Thought
has created this society and sees the advantage of becoming powerful,
dominant, an important person, which happens only through ambition.
Thought has created the image through observation of the man in power
and wants the pleasure of owning a big house, having a picture appear in
the papers, and all the rest of it. Can one live in this world without
ambition, without the image of pleasure which thought has created? Can
one function technologically, outwardly, without this poison of
ambition? It can be done, but it is possible only when we understand the
origin of thinking and understand actually, factually, the unreality of
the division between the observer and the observed. Then we can
proceed, because then virtue has a totally different meaning. It is not
the moral virtue of an ugly, corrupt society, but virtue which is order.
Virtue, like humility, is not something to be cultivated by thought.
Thought is not virtuous; it is bourgeois, petty, and thought cannot
possibly understand either love or virtue or humility.
