How can you think about saving the Galaxy when you’re afflicted by the dreaded intergalactic disease, “Loins of Passion”?
A telenovela is a limited-run serial dramatic programming popular in Latin American, Portuguese, and Spanish television programming. The word combines tele, short for televisión or televisão (Spanish and Portuguese words for television), and novela, a Spanish word for “novel”. Telenovelas are a distinct genre different from soap operas, for telenovelas have an ending and come to an end after a long run (generally less than one year). The telenovela combines drama with the 19th century feuilleton and the Latin American radionovela. The medium has been used repeatedly to transmit sociocultural messages by incorporating them into storylines. Recent telenovelas have evolved in the structure of their plots and in the themes they address. Couples who kiss each other in the first minutes of the first episode sometimes stay together for many episodes before the scriptwriter splits them up. Moreover, previously taboo themes like urban violence, racism, and homosexuality have begun to appear in the newest telenovelas. Due to the similarities between the telenovela and the American soap opera, the telenovela format is also colloquially known as a “Spanish soap opera” in the United States. (Wikipedia.org)
“The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode, but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.”
~ Audrey Hepburn ~
This is one of the most powerful love songs ever written and performed. It communicates the beautiful pain of sexual desire and passion that conceives babies, and yet, leaves partners in heart break, longing, anguish and despair over the loss of a relationship that promised an eternity of overwhelming Ecstasy and Joy.
Sex without communication, seeks only sensation: no responsibility for the lover and no willingness TO BE THE OTHER. Sexual passion endures for a moment. The Child of Passion lives for a Life Time, depending on parents to nurse, to work, to sacrifice for them, in the Hope of fulfilling a Future for themselves, each other and for Mankind. The regret of losing the possibility of creating a Life, and Living a Life, is the Pain of Death.
“Used to be so easy to give my heart away, But I found out the hard way, There’s a price you have to pay I found out that love was no friend of mine I should have known time after time So long, it was so long ago But I’ve still got the blues for you Used to be so easy to fall in love again But I found out the hard way It’s a road that leads to pain I found that love was more than just a game You’re playin’ to win But you lose just the same So long, it was so long ago But I’ve still got the blues for you So many years since I’ve seen your face Here in my heart, there’s an empty space Where you used to be So long, it was so long ago But I’ve still got the blues for you Though the days come and go There is one thing I know I’ve still got the blues for you.”
— lyrics to the song, ‘Still Got The Blues For You’, by Gary Moore
