Un Vaquero en la tierra del cactus (Microfiction Monday)


“Me llamo Juan Medina. Fui una vez un vaquero en la tierra del cactus. Ahora protejo esta tierra como su guardián.”

“No Habla Espanol Senior”

“Oh – Ok.”

****

My name is Juan Medina. I once was a cowboy in the land of the cactus. Now I protect this land as its guardian.

“Mejor en 140?”

“Si – Gracias”

(Ok it’s 140 + subtitles – wink)

Thank you to Susan of Stony River for yet another delightful picture prompt and Microfiction Monday.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are developing elementary curriculum for Ugandan children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. Along with the curriculum, we hope to develop simple fictions about Uganda for the children to read at school. Trust me books are in short supply. We will use our trusted story tellers: a butterfly and a lion to make the stories come alive. Stay tuned as Bethany and Me put pen to paper. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Terrific one and I love the Spanish! I lived in Mexico for over a year and always welcome a chance to practice a little so I don’t forget all of it! Fun one for the day! Have a great week!

      1. Two lovely and nsoatlgic stories. Thanks for the video. I loved Simon and Garfunkel and used to have most of their albums. When I was younger, I didn’t find the last line (Preserve your memories, they’re all that’s left you.)strange at all. Now I find it rather sad. Age is no reason to stop making new memories.

  2. I read the Spanish, then the English and had two thoughts:
    1. My 6 years of Spanish in HS and college were NOT wasted!
    2. Me llamo Inigo Montoya . . . how funny that whole scene would be in Spanish!

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
