The beach and more....

Miami is more than beach and shopping.

 There are museums too.

Today we went to the Jorge Pérez Art Museum.

These are the outdoors plazas around the museum.

It´s a modern and contemporary art museum dedicated to collecting and exhibiting international art 
of the 20th and 21st centuries.

I loved the place and the exhibition.

Then we had lunch at the museum outdoors restaurant  with amazing views of the Byscaine Bay.

If you visit Miami don´t miss it!

After New York and Washington DC......the beach!

Here we are.

At the beach.

It´s warm, sunny and sort of windy.

We just sit in front of the ocean and enjoy it.

As soon as possible I´ll post more pics.

Have a nice Sunday!

See you soon!

I have a dream......

Acabo de leer estas palabras de Martin Luther King en un blog que sigo habitualmente....y sinceramente pienso que encierran tanta grandeza, son tan verdaderas como lo fueron en 1963 y nos invitan a reflexionar a todos y cada uno:

"Probably no admonition of Jesus has been more difficult to follow than the command to "love your enemies."  Some men have sincerely felt that its actual practice is not possible.  It is easy, they say, to love those who love you, but how can one love those who openly and insidiously seek to defeat you?  Others, like philosopher Nietzsche, contend that Jesus' exhortation to love one's enemies is testimony to the fact that the Christian ethic is designed for the weak and cowardly, and not for the strong and courageous.  Jesus, they say, was an impractical idealist.

In spite of these insistent questions and persistent objections, this command of Jesus challenges us with new urgency.  Upheaval after upheaval has reminded us that modern man is traveling along a road called hate, in a journey that will bring us to destruction and damnation.  Far from being the pious injunction of a Utopian dreamer, the command to love one's enemy is an absolute necessity for our survival.  Love even for enemies is the key to the solution of the problem of our world.  Jesus is not an impractical idealist; he is the practical realist."

from Strength to Love by Martin Luther King, Jr.  - published in 1963

Que así sea!
