The  video uses theme from solar regeneration of spring. The leave falls and travels along the river down to another place where it now has life.  The video also exemplifies cosmogonic act "In other words, objects and people regain definition; structure and order take shape but with new energy and vitality." Much with leaf, it falls with the hue of red into the river, it travels and find new leaf on a new tree and becomes green.
Origin of Leonardo German. Meaning is strong as a lion. Only got 3 stars on popularity. :/
Parent simply chose it because it did not sound too Mexican or too American.
Sacred: The beach; i feel whole when there; i hope to someday move nearby.

In the song “A Fish on Land,” Lhasa De Sela uses the symbols of water, fish, and breathing to express the theme of transformation.
A)    Lhasa De Sela states, “A fish on land, Gasping for breath,” which can represent the struggles when somebody or something is out of their natural environment.
B)    Inhaling a breath of fresh air represent life while gasping can represent struggle: “The Taoists also referred to the two phases of respiration as ‘opening and closing of gates to heaven’” (Stevens 415).
C)    A river is not a living person or thing but very much is full of life and “is an evocative symbol of human life and death” (Stevens 111).

I had a dream I played one on one with Kobe Bryant.  I made the first attempt to score but Kobe blocked my shot with a simple swift of his hand.  Even in my own dream I still was not as talented as Kobe.  After Kobe beat me, we went back to his mansion and he showed me all his rings. I want to be as talented as Kobe because all his talented has bought him nice things and 5 championship rings. Even though I lost to Kobe, I still had fun and would play him again.
