"Pedro Lasch in his map and article "Latino/a America" envisions the Americas without any boundaries. He discusses how a map can show traces of immigrants travels. His work explores how globalization enforces boundaries to loosen the flow of capital while preventing movement of people."

"Pedro Lasch en su mapa y artículo, 'Latino/a America,' considera las Américas sin fronteras. Él discute cómo un mapa puede mostrar rastros de los viajes de inmigrantes. Su obra explora como globalización impone limites para aflojar el flujo de capital mientras se prohibe el movimiento de las personas."

Learning how to die 23/06/2011

Then he said to them all:

“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. 24 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it."

The problem lies within humanity. 
Was the creation of humanity an act of love? 
Does God call us or need us? 
Just like we want to be loved, God wants the same.
God is a creative being and we were engendered to be the same.  
Each human being is an image bearer of the creative God. We are intertwined in the act by the great creation
How do we tap into our creative being? 
By dying to ourselves and our false ambitions. Jesus', God incarnate and fully human; shows us this life, its death, and its liberation.

Below is a song that demonstrates this creativity that is essential to the humanity God intended to live fully.  Great musicians created the tune below and through their expression they give us a glimpse of God, the great creation, liberation, and the creativity of it all.

"You have to learn how to die
if you want to want to be alive"
