About el barrio rosa/pink barrio:

Hola. el barrio rosa/the pink barrio is my personal diario/diary. I always think that when someone comes to this “About & Contact” page that it’s to tell me off because they read something they didn’t like, or the reader is asking, “Who is this person?”

Some people have blogs. I have un diario/a diary where I write here as I would write in a diario/diary. In this case, the public can read mi diario and even leave friendly comments about something they read if they’d like, which is not the case at all with personal traditional diaries. I write about things that interests me. I can’t stand partisan politics although I occasionally vent about them in an article. I write about music performances (usually classical), I used to write about Anglican Church music and the Liturgy — no I’m not religious; I’m an Anglican Atheist — but now write about High Church La Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris (Roman Catholic), and I have written a lot about GLBTQ topics especially in San Francisco. To me, all that I write about is all a part of life, even though they may seem like they’re not at all connected or related. I don’t live under any illusion that anyone agrees with me on anything that I write. I’m well aware that my views are not popular. And if someone disagrees with me about something, that’s fine. One is free to disagree, just do so in a friendly way, por favor/please. I remember that years ago I wasted hundreds of hours arguing with D and R partisans over politics on message forums. In the end, nothing was ever accomplished by arguing with them. No one’s mind was ever changed on anything. It was a complete waste of time and it was very frustrating as well. It was not very healthy. So, I’m not here to argue with anyone about anything, including politics. These days, I can’t stand arguing. People will think what they want regardless.
