Flying time an update....


It is amazing it has been almost a year since I had the pleasure to share my voice with so many in WorldPulse Tour 2011. Time has flied away so quick that to me it seem as yesterday when I met Beatrice, Sarvina, Jensine, Ellie, Scott, Angela my mentor, the whole WorldPulse team and of course the beautiful people we met in the audiences in Portland, California, Oregon, New York and Washington.
I still have my eyes wide open and the smell of that little office in the white house where I told them NO MORE ARMS FOR MY COUNTRY because we do not want that! My heart beats hard! And my tears are part of my happiness. The World Pulse Tour definitely changed my life. I many ways. It gave me a break in a very difficult moment in my life and I became a stronger person and my voice got more power. I love you guys!

My family missed me much during the tour specially my beautiful son Nicolás. He also learned so many things while I was there that when I arrived he did not want me to be going anywhere. It was beautiful and very loving and caring. We all grew during this time as we are not apart never for so many days. And we did indeed we grew.

Sentir the NGO I found and direct has been getting into very interesting points even though getting the resources to keep it going is so challenging. María Flores© our own brand to promote the our flowers has been going very good and growing slowly but stable.

Sentir keeps working in the natural preserve land I lived also on and we are doing some researches specially on birds. Nest. So amazing!
The land problem I had with two men got into difficult points but our Fiscalia, lets say our FBI is working to solve the problem. How ever I feel safer. I even go to walk again alone, well not alone, with my son who is 16 years old by now and my five dogs (and we have 8 puppies now which I am giving in adoption)…So lets say my spirit is calm and my heart became stronger.
There is still many work to do. To solve the problem and also to maintain the land as a sustainable project. To help both of them we are dreaming and already have designed an ecohouse. Small, efficient and sustainable. We planned to build ten of those in the whole area to be able to protect the land.

I envision Sentir growing in projects as the ecohouses in our protected area, as the Flower Park we also have designed and are looking for partnership and María Flores which by now is giving many people a decent and fair job.

If you would love to join our non profit you can help us in many ways. N important one is to tell us you would love to join us. From there I would love to let you know we mainly need someone to help us to connect to other organization who may need projects like ours for technical and economical cooperation, a finance and business advisor are now very important for us…we live where many of the projects are happening but sometimes we do not get the support as there are many needs in this country.

Thinking a little about me I would love to be able to translate some stories I have written to also found an editor interested in them.

Many dreams, many ideas, many things happening down here in the roots of the forest…..thinking every once in a while how nice is to be at the top of the canopy where everything look so different!!!!!

My love to all of you

Hi Martha

I have missed you a lot! And have thought of you so much my sweet Martha!

Cuando nos ponemos de acuerdo para darle duro al cambio? Por favor búscame en facebook y en twitter, que yo te he buscado pero hay muchas Martha Llano y he enviado amistad, pero no he recibido respuesta, por tanto creo que me he equivocado, jeje.

En fb, mi foto es de una carretera con un jaguarcito atropellado y en twitter mi nombre es jptipnis, pues estamos haciendo campaña en ambos medios para que no se construya la carretera que matará la selva en mi país para beneficio de la cocaína y los cocaleros que la alimentan.

Hagamos cosas juntas amiga! Seamos una voz cada vez más fuerte para cambiar la conversación en el mundo entero.

Un gran abrazo y que Dios te bendiga preciosa!
