Estimada amigas y amigos, poetisas y poetas,

Fui nombrado Poeta Laureado, para el aniversario de los 100 años de Santo Tomas. Hasta este momento tengo escrito varios poemas en relación a la iglesia.

Ya tengo los pasajes comprados, son para el primero de Noviembre y le informo mi plan de viaje: Estaré leyendo mi poesía en el “Proyecto Cultural Sur de Maracay”, Venezuela, el 5 de Noviembre y el 10 celebrando los 90 años de mi padre en ciudad Bolívar.

Después viajo a Chile donde asistiré a la conferencia “Rencuentro” los días 22 al 25 de Noviembre, con escritores chilenos que viven en diferentes países. Luego me quedare para la Navidad y el Año Nuevo con mí viejita que tiene 88 años.

Feliz Navidad y Prospero Año 2012,

Abrazos y besos

Maria Mak - Vancouver Realtor

Maria Mak - Vancouver Realtor - When Buying a Home...

#1 Failing to use the services of an experienced REALTOR. Many times buyers avoid using the services of a REALTOR under the mistaken belief that it costs them money – or that they will be able to negotiate a better deal directly with the seller or seller’s agent. This can be an expensive mistake. When buying a home, if you are negotiating directly with the seller or seller’s agent, you may not be taking advantage of the best deal available in the marketplace today! 

You can have your own realtor, a Buyer Broker or Purchaser’s Agent, who is committed to using the experience gained through hundreds of successful negotiations for your benefit – at no charge to you! Your agent can be paid from the same commission that the seller’s agent is paid from – by the seller. Real Estate is a unique business, where an agent with one day’s experience and no sales gets paid the same as an agent with several years experience and hundreds of successful sales. An experienced agent can help you avoid the other costly mistakes outlined here, and make your home buying experience an enjoyable, stress-free one!

Dearest Ariadne Sawyer hello,

“Thank you very much for all your hard work and for connecting and encouraging peace and unity worldwide. I admit that I lack enough words to express my acknowledgements and gratitude to the International World Poetry, Canada.

My full name is Sajia Alaha Ahrar, but everyone knows and calls me Alaha Ahrar. I am an international student from Kabul, Afghanistan at the University of Mary Washington, Fredericksburg, Virginia. I am a triple major student. I am majoring in Human Rights, Political Sciences and International Affairs and I am also going to obtain the Middle Eastern Studies Certificate.
