Poesia: William Blake - Cantares de experiencia - Parte 6 - El Terrón y el Guijarro - Link









El Terrón y el Guijarro


"El amor no anhela complacerse a sí
mismo
ni por sí mismo se inquieta,
en cambio al otro da sosiego,
y construye un Cielo en la desolación
del Infierno."
Así cantaba un diminuto Terrón
de Arcilla
pisoteado por las patas del ganado,
pero un Guijarro del cañadón
murmuró estos versos apropiados:
"El amor sólo busca darse el gusto,
y encadenar al otro a su deleite,
se regocija con el desconsuelo ajeno,
y construye un Infierno a expensas
del Cielo."

NASA: Botswana - Not Your Usual Flooding - 07.06.12

The Okavango Delta is an oasis in Africa’s Kalahari Desert. When the Kalahari reaches its driest phase—when plants wither and animals hunt for drinking water—the Okavango provides it. But starting in 2009, the delta provided more than usual, and excess water overflowed into other land depressions in the region.
One of the waterways linked to the Okavango Delta is the Savuti River, roughly 80 kilometers (50 miles) northeast of the sprawling inland delta. On May 26, 2012, the Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on NASA’s Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite captured this natural-color image of water flowing through the Savuti River and into Savuti Swamp. The swamp sits inside the larger Mababe Depression within Botswana’s Chobe National Park.
Unlike the seasonal flooding that affects the Okavango Delta every year, the flooding in 2012 was unusual. Guido van Langenhove of Hydrological Services Namibia characterized it as “an exceptional hyrological event.”
The rains that fill the Okavango don’t actually fall over the delta itself. Instead, the rains fall in the Angolan Highlands and travel about 450 kilometers (280 miles) through meandering rivers and over an extremely shallow gradient. As a result, rains that typically fall over Angola from October through March don’t usually reach the bottom of the Okavango Delta until July. But in May 2012, water had already arrived in the Okavango and was overflowing into other waterways such as the Savuti River.
“The Okavango Delta has had record floods for a few years now,” said Frank Eckardt of the University of Cape Town. “We have seen the Boteti River in flood since 2009, and have also seen water in Lake Xau, southeast of the delta. Now we are seeing water in the Selinda Channel, heading into the Mababe Depression northeast of the delta. Some of these depressions only fill with water after decades of dryness.”
Van Langenhove concurs, remarking that the flooding had reactivated waterways in the region regarded by some observers as “fossil rivers.”

Music: Joe Bonamassa - Around the bend - Lyrics









video






Lord I've come a long way.
Here's another bright day.
I pay what I gotta pay,
To play what I gotta play.

I was born in the country, straight into town.
I go anywhere to see what goin' down.
I see cowards and heros, fast as the wind.
I go down any road there is, to see what's around the bend.

Girls I've hadn't and knew,
Some were false and some were true.
Tasted the honey and dew,
Lovin' I never get through.

I was born in the country, straight into town.
I go anywhere to see what goin' down.
I see cowards and heros, fast as the wind.
I go down any road there is, to see what's around the bend.

You let me rest my weary head, weary head.
Let's find out what this life is,
Before we're dead, Oh, before we're dead.

I was born in the country, straight into town.
I go anywhere to see what goin' down.
I see cowards and heros, fast as the wind.
I go down any road there is,
I've been down every road there is,
To see what's around the bend.

To see what's around the bend...
To see what's around the bend...
