Arbol Scientiae!! Hace años no estaba cerrado, por lo que las ramas del árbol se podían tocar directamente. Según mandaba la tradición, debías ponerte de espaldas al árbol y alcanzar con la mano una de sus ramas, al azar!! Y esa era la carrera que debías estudiar!!

Arbol Scientiae!! Many years ago,you could touch the branches of the tree directly (it was not covered). The tradition said you should place your back towards the tree and then try to reach one of the branches with your hand!! And that was suposed to be your profession!!

Pero claro se tubo que cerrar porque algunos se querin llevar la carrera ya puesta :(, yo lo hice y nada que ver, pero bueno.

C.Vazquez on December 20, 2007

very interesting story..did you manage to touch a profession ?

C.Vazquez on January 7, 2008

Eme Jota, lo cierto es que "HABÍA" más ramas en el árbol, pero empezaron a "llevárselas" a saber con que "oscuro" propósito...y finalmente se optó por hacer un cierre para preservar las ramitas q áun sobrevivian...

C.Vazquez on January 7, 2008

Laughingmackerel, Im glad to see you are back!! Yes, I managed to touch Psycology...but I studied Filology...yeah, I know...it sounds simillar hahaha but nothing to do with each other.

laughingmackerel on January 7, 2008

and the same to you Dear Crystal ! ..is that the study of the languages? ..if so English is a good one as we have beg borrowed and stole our words from around the globe . ;)

C.Vazquez on January 8, 2008

Yes, you are right again T. I´m afraid the right spelling is "philology". English is a very interesting language from the linguistc point of view and your phonetics are "awesome" ;)

laughingmackerel on January 8, 2008

yes we often get a choice of the gentle latin based word or the ruder anglo saxon and i guess both have their time and place ;) T

C.Vazquez on January 8, 2008

T your are wise my friend... ;)

Robert Fulghum: I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge -- myth is more potent than history -- dreams are more powerful than facts --

he was wise..T ;)

C.Vazquez on January 9, 2008

;)Yes Mr.Robert Fulghum is wise...too.
