Time To Bust Out Of The Cocoon

I can't believe the last time I posted was in April. Actually I can believe it.  I apologize for my lack of creativity.  As my compadre says "I got caught up with life."  Truth be told, I had written in a previous post that I was in transition with my life.  This included career and personal  but then, life happened.  Someone very close to me was diagnosed with an illness and time stood still.  Like a caterpillar in it's cocoon, I stayed in the confines of a dark and closed space spiritually, emotionally and physically. I went through life as usual (taking kids to school, family events, meetings, etc) but I was numb. 

I can't say what specific action snapped me out of it.  It could be that I hosted my father's 72nd birthday and we were surrounded by family and laughter. I sat back and enjoyed the smiles on every one's faces and realized that my smile was also genuine. I became thankful for life. I came to terms with the fact that some things are out of my control.

So once again, here I am. I just enrolled in school (IPSB) to finish my last two courses to become a massage therapist.  I was able to tap on my keyboard and most of all I was able to breathe deeply this evening and just be.

I hope you will "be" with me.


  1. I love you prima. My prayers are with you. I would have liked to have been there. Adelante there is hope. I still believe in miracles. As I stood by my loved one 's bed during resucitation I would say I will still yet praise you Lord no matter what happens. I miss him but I love him. I can only think how thankful I am for those last months of his life. He came to terms with God and with himself. Love Vero.

  2. Good for you!! And there must be something in the air: I feel like I got a re-boot recently, too... Yay!
