Nonstop Moon" A Novel Of Poetry By Sergio Inestrosa
Sergio Inestrosa

Sergio Inestrosa is at it again with another novel of beautiful poetry focusing on the purpose and beauty of something everyone across the planet sees every day... or night: the moon. His book of Spanish poetry is translated into English by Margaret Young, so readers are able to view both languages on a single page. Inestrosa's work gives readers the ability to read work in two languages, but also a strong take on a piece of the world that most people see, but do not understand: the moon.

The book begins with a few free verse poem, personifying the moon as it "goes for a walk in the sky" and is also referred to as "reluctant" while the moon is told to get dressed and play. These poems are followed by both Senryus and Tankas which are both Japanese forms of poetry. With both of these forms of poetry only being 3-5 lines long, They give a short, in-depth insight into the moon. Inestrosa shows the moon as a piece of the world, both watching over the actions we take, but also has its own actions and cycle of life it lives. The moon is compared to a "radiant goddess" once it is born. We see the moon throughout seasons, as well as a safe haven for parts of nature, as the time of day when all is silent, the wind has stopped, and nature can rest. We also see the dark in it's darker moments, relating it to crime and times of haunting.

Inestrosa articulately expresses the moon with the entire personality of a human, showing that all parts of life are both creative and complete, but still have flaws. "Luna Que No Cesa" will be available on Amazon in October! Please visit Sergio's other books on amazing here to see when it is posted! Check it out here on Amazon

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
