Happy birthday Kenneth Patchen (December 13, 1911–January 8, 1972) .
.
Art is not to throw light, but to be light. --Kenneth Patchen
.
Kenneth Patchen was an American poet and novelist. He experimented with different forms of writing and incorporated painting, drawing, and jazz music into his works, which have been compared with those of William Blake and Walt Whitman. Patchen's biographer wrote that he "developed in his fabulous fables, love poems, and picture poems a deep yet modern mythology that conveys a sense of compassionate wonder amidst the world's violence." Along with his friend and peer Kenneth Rexroth, he was a central influence on the San Francisco Renaissance and the Beat Generation.

Happy birthday Babs Gonzales (October 27, 1919 – January 23, 1980)
.
.
Babs Gonzales, born Lee Brown, was an American jazz vocalist of the bebop era notable for writing the song "Oop-Pop-A-Da", which was recorded and performed by his band, Three Bips and a Bop, and was later made famous by Dizzy Gillespie.
.
Gonzales was born Lee Brown in Newark, New Jersey, but he and his brothers were all called Babs. He studied piano at an early age and learned to play drums. Looking for whatever money-making opportunities he could find, he made his way to Los Angeles, as he recalls in his memoir I Paid My Dues.... Wearing a turban in Hollywood in the 1940s, he called himself Ram Singh (sound familiar? Like Korla Pandit). His networking and hustling talents landed him the job as Errol Flynn's "foreign" chauffeur. He adopted the name Ricardo Gonzales to pass himself off as Mexican rather than black in to get a room in a good hotel. He got a break as a vocalist when he was asked to fill in for Mel Tormé.

Time to be thankful for my first chair experience as Member Committee of AIESEC in Colombia.

It was sure the best way to start, being chair of AIESEC in Popayán.

To this LIMITLESS LC for making this conference the best possible and for giving not only your 100% in these two days but giving everything you are. I'm sure AIESEC in Popayán is ready to live a generation that with without limits actions are going to transform their dreams into reality for a city that needs without limits actions.

Thank you, Ana (la LCP fabulosa) for inviting me to this experience and for letting me be part of the huge history this committee is going to make. EB On, without your support this conference would be just boring but with you, this experience was something I will never forget.

OC, thanks for being everything this conference needed and if everything went right and worked, it's because we had amazing people working for this dream as a Conference Team.

And last but not least, to every member of AIESEC in Popayán, thanks for all the sharing and also crazy moments we live together, I'm sure you can always go higher and I'm waiting anxiously for every dream that you wrote on those post its. 💚🎧🇨🇴 #withoutlimits #Popayánwithoutlimits #theleaderswedeserve #BEATGen #ProudChair #ReadyToAchieve

Happy birthday to Beat poet Ted Joans (July 4, 1928 – April 25, 2003) .
.
.
Ted Joans was an American jazz poet, surrealist, trumpeter, and painter. His work stands at the intersection of several avant-garde streams and some have seen in it a precursor to the orality of the spoken-word movement. However he criticized the competitive aspect of "slam" poetry. .
.
Joans is known for his motto: "Jazz is my religion, and Surrealism is my point of view.

Lead me counterclockwise, to pockets of joy,
And jazz. - Bob Kaufman

"From midnight to 5am, she wandered. She saw all the lights, all the darkness, all the people who reside strictly at night and are never seen in the daylight, when bodies have no shadow. She could smell cigarettes and cheap whiskey on most blocks and she enjoyed it: it felt like home. The truth was that she knew she belonged with the chaos, havoc and sin. She wandered at night but she wasn't lost."

Being the Stream
.
Meditation is not just a rest or retreat from the turmoil of the stream or the impurity of the world.
It is a way of being the stream, so that one can be at home in both the white water and the eddies.
Meditation may take one out of the world, but it also puts one totally into it.

Venice
Holy ground
Stained with the blood poets
Beneath the breasts of birds
Guarded by cats
Behind every corner
The Muse, Angel of Surprise
