Sometimes you just have to wonder. Not in the magical ‘what could be’ kind of way. Nope, it’s more of a wonder as you look down the path you’ve chosen

And suddenly you realize…. ‘We’re not in Kansas anymore Toto!’

What once seemed so clear makes you wonder if you really saw what you saw in the first place. Today was one such day. My mind kept wandering around in the world of ‘stuff' - big stuff, little stuff, unidentified and mislabeled stuff. I thought, perchance, I should reel it in, but alas, my mind had a mind of its own. I was not invited; quite simply, my mind had stuff to do.

I cannot say I’ve learned to accept this walkabout my mind seems to enjoy. Nor, can I say I appreciate the fact that it runs off without me. What I do know is that when it has finished its flight of freedom,

It will playfully call to me

And I will answer, "Don't worry, I'm still here."

And together, once again, we will sit together, as we usually do, breathing, listening, and riding the tide.

Loved and Lost

I have to say, it has been a while since I wrote here...As some of you know, the last two months my daughter, Maya, had some health problems and my mind was set only on more, lets say, mundane things. But now I am feeling that I am coming back to my old self and I am going to take it one step at the time...So, bear with me...

So many things loved and lost

A drawer full of old photos and memories
So many things loved and lost
My childhood
with sweet smiles and blond curls
Adolescence in short skirts and crazy haircuts.
All the dogs, tongues lolling, tails wagging
fidelity and wet kisses
the flowers we used to gather in the summer
the magical woods,
the sky so blue
seasons coming and going
each one with marvels and miracles.

So many people that disapeared from my life
looking at me from above
visiting only in dreams
heart ache and longing.

So many things loved and lost
never had the chance to cherish them
to thank them
to keep them close
not enough
and now they are all lost for ever.
