Love of my life

Last night I went to see Bohemian Rapsody, a tribute to Freddy Mercury. While there may have been some untruths and exaggerations, it’s a love story. The story of a love; self-love, passion and how we all have our inner demons that rarely people see and probably don’t need to. Love of my life, a […]

And we wonder

If someone will ever care enough to hold our hand and hug our hearts completely. If that someone will hold us close, and even temporarily, erase our fears, and worries. If they will believe we are worth their time and decide every day to stay by our side. And by wondering we will at least […]

We are both stuck

My niece has a beautiful Instagram feed called @alexia_is_stuck where she at 14, shares her thoughts and inspiration as an introvert. I really get her name, especially now. She is young and feels stuck. I’m 52 and feel kind of the same way. Stuck in a world where empaths and introverts suffer most. Today, I too […]

Never let you go

As a teacher, I’ve said more goodbyes than I can remember. I thought biding farewell would get easier in time but it doesn’t. Things change as we grow older, and our hearts secretly whisper; “Never let you go.” When I was younger I was more aloof, detached, and self-centered so, the impact of saying goodbye […]

Chilling outdoors with my sister

    One of the things I most enjoy when spending time with my sister, is doing things together outdoors. For as long as I can remember we´ve both been into fitness and have shared hikes, runs and long walks on the beach together. She lives in Florida and one of our favorite things to […]

To my little ones

I have yet to tell you that I won’t be with you next year, and it’s hard to think about the right moment to break the news to you before the year is over. My heroes, my young champions, my funny guys, my morning glee, my troupers, my studious and wacky ones; you shall be […]

Coming home

There’s no doubt in my mind when I land in Spain that my heart skips a beat and I feel right at home. Landing today in Madrid reminded me where my heart belongs. Home will always be here and the Bay Area my satellite home. I have my heart with my kids and friends in the […]

Hope in a book

Reading; a passion which allows one to escape reality and experience a thousand lives while living one’s own story. But not only through books can we read, we can read into people’s lives, stranger’s lives, imagining their unique circumstances. Amazing stories that would be worth writing but will never see the light. Why are some […]

Reconciling ourselves with the truth of life

Whoever told us that life would someday be perfect and easy? That we would find happiness and stay there? That there is a special someone for every one of us? That we would reach that moment where we would be content? Nobody and everyone. Because happiness has become a business and an unachievable longlasting state. […]

Memories of water

I see the pool straight ahead through the glass and it reminds me of my grandmother. She so loved to swim, float and chat with friends or mostly acquaintances. As I am reminded of this, my thoughts go to how she was and is so strong. She says she cannot cry, as I couldn’t for […]
