WALT DISNEY WAS BORN IN MOJACAR, ALMERIA in Spain !!!

It´s factual. 

Just like so much is true and good and so many-- just don´t want to believe it. 

Of course, no one in their legalistic right mind would say such a thing in print. 
It wouldn’t just be deformation of character, libellous, slanderish, hearsay calumny, rumour mongering, or downright dangerous gossip. 
Perish the thought! 

It would stretch the very limits of the imagination to the breaking point that would trouble our own childhood concept of fantasy.
Walt Disney was as American as they came. 

You can say it out loud: "Mother, apple pie, green backs (dollar bills) and Uncle Walt." A man of such immense importance and universal acclaim could only have come from far away golden shores. 
The image is appropriate. Disney fits together like all great American myths: Superman-- "truth, justice and the American way." 
And the best of that tradition was represented by the very ideals Disney espoused: imagination, optimism, and self-made success in the best of American traditions. 
Even the slightest murmur of that hallowed Disney name conjures up the finest reminisces of childhood: Snow White, Dumbo, Captain Nemo: pure fantasy served up on a big candy mountain.

For generations the Disney company with the same home drawn milk of comical commercialism that nurtured the American family of the 50’s hasn’t missed feeding the world it´s environmentally correct concepts. Whether it be nature films, travel logs, cartoons, educational documentaries, TV specials, theme Park fun, feature films, or a slight peek into what the future holds for mankind-- Disney was always there. Leading from the front, showing others how it was done.

One big block-buster song, film, or park followed the next. 
The whirlwind of fantasy never ceased.
But in all the hull-a-la-boo very few examined the man. 

Normal in most ways, he drank scotch heavily, smoked 70 specially rolled black cigarettes daily (and died from it youngish at 65), washed his hands thirty times an hour and spent his eighteen working hours dreaming of unusual characters from a world within himself: a talking mouse, a duck that became so famous he learned to quack in every known language; Goofy dog´s, Cinderella’s losing slippers, charming princes´ that awoke sleeping beauties, Lion Kings, Indian Princesses , beasts and of course fairies. 
You might say that other than his Kafkaesque habits, Walt Disney never grew up. He remained his entire lifetime locked into a living character resembling the antimated Peter Pan. Disney relived his childhood every day.
Not unsuccessful at his work he won more than 950 honours and citations world-wide, including 48 Academy Awards, 7 Emmys, 29 Oscars, and had received special commendations from every US president and many heads of states of Foreign countries for "his universal good will."
Disney just didn´t give a nation what they wanted. 

His concept of the future helped to remind the working class that they too could laugh and enjoy themselves. That done, the life of leisure was just down the road. 
That being so, Disney expanded out from just the motion picture industry and created theme parks for his new liege of followers to enjoy their universal "feel good concept." Now, it wasn´t just the thrill of individual assimilation but the whole family travelled there and shared the excitement together.

But while the media focused its attentions on Disney´s whimsical industry of escapism rumours persisted, spurred on by intimate friends, that Disney had an unusual past. Some suggested that this man that correlated to the American dream had an un-American background, an adopted childhood. 

The exact historical situation is complicated because Walt Disney himself never once denied his Hispanic origins. According to his life long friend Salvador Dali, they mutually discussed the situation on more than one occasion in private and Dali contended frequently "that Walt too was convinced of his Spanish origins".

In the states every public document asserts that he was born at 1249 Tripp Avenue in Chicago on December 5th, 1901. 
This much we know only from his legitimate daughter Diana (the other heir, Sharon Mae, was adopted). Diana insisted in her biography of her father this certain fact! 
However, two other biographer’s Richard Sickley and Bob Thomas contradict her both contending that when they queried Disney if he was from Mojacar "he smiled a far off nostalgic grin and would only repeat "Quien sabe?" Who knows? No one has been able to come up with an authentic birth certificate either from the Windy City or here in Mojacar where all the records were destroyed during the civil war.

MOJACAR
Don Jacinto, the former mayor of Mojacar that made the village famous by giving away free houses to lure the foreigners here to live tells the story that many years ago in the early 50´s men arrived at the then lonesome rugged hill top village attired in dark suits and examined the archives for traces of Disney. 
The detectives found little in their search but did announce themselves as working for Disney.

The street story of Mojacar is that Walt Disney´s real name was Jose Guirao, the son of a man by that name and a local beauty, one Isabel Zamora Asensio (popularly known as "la bicha"). Walt Disney, or better said, Jose Guirao was born in the village barrio of Espiritu Santo sometime in 1900. 
The father died young. As the mother had relatives in Villaricos she went there to live, met a sea captain that took the boy to Boston and sheltered him with a farming family from Kansas. 
Plenty of older residents keep this story alive as a matter of historical fact. "Where else could such a talent have come from but the very CORNER OF ENCHANTMENT."

Another version exists which I shall refer to as the GUAZAMARA
tale in which the same woman became romantically enlaced with another Mojaquero, Pedro Gonzalez Carillio, married and father of quite a few other children. In her disgrace she left Mojacar and took up residence in nearby Guazamara (some 25 kms away near Pulpi).

I went there. You start asking important questions by going to the bars. Buy a few drinks. Let the people know that you´re not a tax inspector. I was surprised. The very old folks remembered "something of the story". 
Apparently there had been a recent TV documentary done. News to me! The general consensus is that relations of "la bicha" (which isn´t necessarily an endearing term) live up one of the back roads. Lots of Zamora families have small cortijos near town. I discovered that the farms were located in a region known as EL Guirao (ring a bell?). 
It would have been a real kinda caper if Walt Disney had been born in one of them. 
The area is famed for alcaparas, in fact about 95% of the world´s capers come from there. 
The mother, Isabel Zamora then later moved to Murcia, then to Valencia, and it was there that she met the captain of a ship that transported minerals from Villaricos to California. 
They left together, Isabel becoming the maid in the house of her patron, a Disney that allowed the boy to use the name.

Another researcher on #Disney, Ken Polsson who maintains a very good Disney write-up on the webb has written to me suggesting that I "beg, borrow, buy, or steal a copy of "Walt Disney - Hollywood's Dark Prince". It goes into some detail the darker side of Walt that few books ever mention. It mentions that Walt suspected he was adopted, that his father (Elias) had an affair with a Spanish woman, and then adopted the resulting child (who was supposedly born in Spain). 
The book mentions that even the FBI investigated this in Spain. I don't know the facts or details of how much truth there is to it."

The more recognized public American version had him growing up in Kansas on a farm, attending art school, then moving to Chicago where he studied at McKinley High and later at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts. In 1917 with war spirit moving him he decided to enlist but could never find an authentic birth certificate. 
He became suspicious himself. 
His parents helped him forge one so that during WW I he could serve as an ambulance driver for the Red Cross. Following the war and a bankruptcy failure from early cartoons he moved to California.

In reality, nothing documentary was every known about his early years. 
But, amongst the many American versions there is definite mention of Walt Disney himself being suspicious about his true parents. What few documents remain regarding the subject is that during the height of the Hollywood purge of anti-communism and un-American activities US President Eisenhower sent a memo to FBI head J. Edgar Hoover, asking for a quick name check on Walt Disney and three others, as persons considered for appointment to the Advisory Committee on the Arts, National Cultural Centre. 
As a result of the report, Walt was not appointed to the committee.

For my part I like leaving this story just where it is. 
Confused but factual. Mojacar deserves to claim him just as much as anywhere else. Walt Disney belonged to the world. That unique status is confirmed every generation by children that become enamoured with the same childhood antics that we all perceived: Mickey Mouse, Pluto, Huwey, Dewey and Louie still bringing smiles and giggles to Japanese, Arabs or Laplanders.
It makes no personal difference to me whether you accept my research or not. Like all good things from abacus to zeena... if you want to believe-- it´s true! 

I think he did come from #Mojacar. Yes, born in the barrior of Espiritu Santo. Come over and I will show you the exact house. As all of us true life explorers say around the camp fire when such momentous issues are discussed: "If it ain´t true-- it should be."

YES PENNY, THERE ARE UNICORNS!

Too many teachers today touch and go material supposedly suitable for teaching English and languages... most of it irrelevant in content, objectives and level...

To learn well our brain needs to find a logic in the approach applied... for want of which it systematically discards most -if not all- of what it is fed... 

All this wasting good time and money for both teachers and students...

A story in a course book offers many benefits... not only does it give body and logic to the learning but it also supplies all the language the students would learn if the they were learning English as a mother tongue... which always works...

a story also help the teacher give body and raise interest in the subject... lightening the load of learning with the entertainment approach of the story... and the students feel less stressed and tired... the entertaining approach works every time... the students pay more attention to what's going on... and even venture to to speculate on the outcome of the plot... providing all the more commitment !

The #Sounds of #Language

I take it you already know
Of tough and bough and cough and dough
Others may stumble but not you
On hiccough, thorough, tough and through
Well done ! And now you wish perhaps
To learn of less familiar traps.

Beware of heard, a dreadful word
That looks like beard ans sounds like bird
And dead, it's like bed not bead !
For goodness sake don't call it deed
Watch out for meat and great and threat
They rhyme with suite and straight and debt.

TSW (1970)

Corinne me dit qu’à 50 ans elle a toujours eu mal au ventre… sans comprendre ni savoir pourquoi… rien n’y fait… elle a le mal accroché au ventre…
Ce jour-là elle sortait d’une séance de régression karmique avec moi… dans laquelle elle était retournée dans une vie de soldat au moyen-âge… vie dans laquelle elle était morte d’une lance qui lui avait transpercé l’estomac…


Corinne n’a jamais plus eu mal à l’estomac depuis…

La régression karmique est aussi une puissante thérapie énergétique qui fait remonter les événements non-résolus des vies passées… qui trouvent là leur solution dans la vie présente…

Gérard travaille son anglais avec ardeur mais trouve que ses résultats stagnent… il souhaiterait aller plus vite… mieux retenir… et parler avec plus d’aisance…


Je lui conseille une dose d’optimisme car il fait des progrès réguliers…

Il me répond qu’il aimerait bien apprendre l’anglais par l’hypnose… et je lui dis qu’il parle à la bonne personne !


Je peux utiliser l’#hypnose pour l’aider à progresser… il me dit qu’il est prêt à essayer… et nous nous mettons au travail…

Il se relève de mon divan radieux… et presque mort de rire… et se met à parler anglais sans hésitation…

Hélène est déprimée… elle ne sait pas pourquoi… elle déprime en permanence et a perdu le goût de vivre… elle a bien essayé de sortir plus… de travailler moins… de changer de décor… de faire du sport… de manger mieux… la déprime gagne toujours la bataille et remonte au créneau…

Rien dans son histoire ou ses événements récents ou lointains ne justifie sa déprime… il semblerait même qu’elle ait tout pour être heureuse !!!

 

Elle ne comprend pas pourquoi je lui parle d’énergie et de bioénergie mais se laisse faire… et là je la vois qui retrouve un sourire depuis trop longtemps oublié… au rancart… la joie de vivre n’est plus loin… et la déprime vite oubliée…

La musicothérapie peut apporter une réponse puissance et efficace à des problèmes de santé...

Le fils d'une de mes amies, Jacob, souffre du Syndrome d'Asperger (autisme)... il y'a 2 ans il a traversé une période de pré-adolescence particulièrement difficile...
Un garçon intelligent, aimant et aimant qui devait un véritable diable...
J'ai appelé sa mère et lui ai parlé de #Reiki et de musicothérapie...
Elle m'a dit qu'il aimait la musique... et nous nous sommes arrêtés sur une approche par la musicothérapie...
Je procédais donc à une auscultation et une prescription...

Deux semaines et demi plus tard sa mère m'appelle et me demande :
'Quand avons-nous commencé la musicothérapie avec Jacob ?' Je lui réponds et lui demande pourquoi elle m'interpelle...
Elle me répond qu'il est méconnaissable... qu'il est redevenu gérable... et retourne à l'école qu'il avait quittée... et m'envoie une photo...
Jacob a totalement changé... et a même grandi !!!
