A child is born,
The Universe throbs with new life,
A dream has come true
Tall trees and glass walls witness
Miracles; baby’s birthday.
Pictures of the
Frauenklinik in the Englishen Garten in Munich, where my grandson, Marcos, was born last July.
It’s the perfect place and time, sunless, solitary, and silent.
We’re shadows gliding over the lake, blowing ripples, before we dive into our last baptism.
My arms, wrapped around your urn and one last kiss as we sink into the lake.
Ready for our rebirth.

Every Monday I’ll be telling you…
What am I GRATEFUL for?
What have I ACHIEVED? (Things I’ve done for myself)
What are am I PROUD of? (Things I’ve done for others)
What are my PLANS for next week?
Sometimes there are unique and perfect moments in life when everything comes together; I’m grateful, have a sense of achievement, feel proud and have plans for the very same reason.
I’d like to introduce you all to my fourth grandson; Manuel
Just a day ago, he was safely tucked away in his mother’s womb!
Today, I’m grateful for this wonderful experience of having him in my arms, or just watching him sleep.
I feel a sense of achievement because I raised my family, including Manuel’s mother and auntie, in the picture below, to be loving, sensible and sensitive people.
I’m proud of my contribution to making my daughter become the fabulous mother she is.
I’m planning to watch Manuel and his brother and sister grow and help him to be the best version of himself possible.
(Almost) Wordless Wednesday.
Birth: The source of the Spanish River Ebro, the second longest river in the Iberian peninsula, in Fontibre (in Spanish the source of a river is called its birth: nacimiento).
Death: Ancient Cemetery next to the Romanic style Visigothic church at
Retortillo, Cantabria, Spain built on the ruins of a Roman necropolis known as Julióbriga, a few kilometers away from the river’s source.
One Liner Wednesday. This week’s theme: ‘It was the Beginning of the end’
“I wish you to know that you have been the last dream of my soul.”
“I hope that real love and truth are stronger in the end than any evil or misfortune in the world.”
So wise. I’ll never tire of rereading Charles Dickens…
Finally, seen at the Hermitage in Córdoba:
Translation: In the twlight of your life your last exam will be on love
Hope you have a Wonderful Wednesday. Remember, carpe diem; it’s all we have!
