Día del padre. In memoriam

Querido Papá,

Hoy mis hijos (tus nietos) me han hecho un regalo para el Día del Padre y mi interior se llenó de una gran tristeza. Otro año más sin tu presencia, sin tu apoyo, sin tus palabras... Eso sí, otro año más dentro de mi corazón.

Por mucho tiempo que pase, y aún a pesar de las lágrimas que me inundan, siempre  te llevaré dentro de mí hasta el último día de mi vida. 

Allá dónde estés con tu otro nieto,  habrá un hijo que te echa a faltar y un hijo al que echamos a faltar.

Feliz día a los dos dentro de mi dolor...

Leonard Cohen - Take This Waltz

Now in Vienna there's ten pretty women 
There's a shoulder where Death comes to cry 
There's a lobby with nine hundred windows 
There's a tree where the doves go to die 
There's a piece that was torn from the morning 
And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost 
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay 
Take this waltz, take this waltz 
Take this waltz with the clamp on its jaws 
Oh I want you, I want you, I want you 
On a chair with a dead magazine 
In the cave at the tip of the lily 
In some hallways where love's never been 
On a bed where the moon has been sweating 
In a cry filled with footsteps and sand 
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay 
Take this waltz, take this waltz 
Take its broken waist in your hand 

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz 
With its very own breath of brandy and Death 
Dragging its tail in the sea 

There's a concert hall in Vienna 
Where your mouth had a thousand reviews 
There's a bar where the boys have stopped talking 
They've been sentenced to death by the blues 
Ah, but who is it climbs to your picture 
With a garland of freshly cut tears? 
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay 
Take this waltz, take this waltz 
Take this waltz it's been dying for years 

There's an attic where children are playing 
Where I've got to lie down with you soon 
In a dream of Hungarian lanterns 
In the mist of some sweet afternoon 
And I'll see what you've chained to your sorrow 
All your sheep and your lilies of snow 
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay 
Take this waltz, take this waltz 
With its "I'll never forget you, you know!" 

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz ... 

And I'll dance with you in Vienna 
I'll be wearing a river's disguise 
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder, 
My mouth on the dew of your thighs 
And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook, 
With the photographs there, and the moss 
And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty 
My cheap violin and my cross 
And you'll carry me down on your dancing 
To the pools that you lift on your wrist 
Oh my love, Oh my love 
Take this waltz, take this waltz 
It's yours now. It's all that there is

The key innovative element is to generate the foundations of the needed European framework and promote this as an integral part of the future vocational training. The integrated European approach will assure a major impact on the European level by shared understanding on the contents and the development of pedagogical tools.
The project has three concrete aims:
- to develop new European training modules for trainers and guides, integrating common European vision and practices into every module.
- to validate the European modules in the partner countries.
- to stimulate mobility between teachers and students.
- to allow tourist guide training providers across Europe to include components that address sustainability while stressing European intercultural mediation as a contribution to LLL in their courses;
- to facilitate the intercultural dialogue between tourists and guides;
- to increase tourists' awareness about environmental and socio-cultural challenges thus promote a sustainable tourism;
- to improve the quality of training programmes for tourist guides and of qualification systems across Europe in a LLL perspective
