Today I learned about two deaths in the family. One, was taken by the virus we are all fearing these day and the other passed in an accident. She was full of the kind of ganas that few people have for life and living. I do not think I ever saw her without a wide and beautiful contagious smile. She survived cancer twice and those … Continue reading How many more?

Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments. Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove: O no! it is an ever-fixed mark That looks on tempests and is never shaken; It is the star to every wandering bark, Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken. Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy … Continue reading Sonnet 116 – Shakespeare

“In the arts, as in life, everything is possible provided it is based on love.” -Marc Chagall I wish I had the password to access pure love and peace. The one to help us to release tensions and frustrations, biases, and even hate. It would prohibit foul verbalization vulgarization, and dehumanization just because we have free speech. You may characterize my wish as … Continue reading Passwords

Today is National Grandparents Day. It is a day to remember perhaps the eldest family member. It is an opportunity to remember those who have passed as well. I met only one grandparent. My maternal grandmother was an extraordinary lady. She was widowed young and raised four daughters on her own. I remember her stories most of all. I spent most of the summer vacations … Continue reading Grandparents Day –
You became a father to me; I needed someone to look up to and make proud once again. You counseled me during hard times. You protected me when you thought I was not looking. You taught me that marriage is a heavenly partnership. I watched how much you loved your children and then the grandchildren we gave you. You were so proud when you met … Continue reading In Remembrance of My Father-in-Law
