Verano 2010: el Mejor Verano... y comienza una nueva etapa. A new chapter starts

Summer in the garden

2010. The Best Summer.
I wrote a page for The Writing Group in May. Now, mid July, it has been our best Summer.
You may visit the Blog during the trip Ottawa-Seattle-Ottawa. One month driving our Paloma, to be there for our son, Ricardo. His celebration of love with Mary in Harmony Hill, Washington, July 4th.

We crossed Canada in our Dove, La Paloma... It is an unique experience to live. The distances (it took us 4 days crossing Ontario!), the beauty of this country, the Prairies, immense, the wealth and resources of Canada, the water. Lake Superior may be seen from space. Each road taken was like driving to the unknown, letting us be surprised by light, color, distance, people, places, towns, cities. We loved Winnipeg and Medicine Hat; we enjoyed the rain and fog, the sun as here, in Lake Kootenay in BC

The wedding, prepared with loving care up to the least detail to make it unique and beautiful. Mary´s smiling eyes, her clear soul there with a golden aura and her beauty in a green silk dress. Ricardo, his father, José and Alejo, all  had the ¨guayaberas¨ we brought from Colombia for Alejo´s wedding day, a year ago. I saw my son beaming with beautiful light of peace, love and healing. The family of 7 celebrated their love, our family of 16 now, celebrated with them with joy with humour and music in a beautiful setting, Harmony Hill on the hood Canal, Washington. Ricardo´s photos of the wedding are here.

After the wedding we went camping with María and her family, and Nicolás, who is like my other son, and his family to the Olympics to share memories, talk about the wedding and the beautiful experience we all have had. After, we returned to Canada, Flight Vancouver-Ottawa and María, José, Emilia and Luisa drove the Paloma back. It was a perfect round trip our Paloma´s gift for the family. 

What´s next?
It is Summertime. I sing with Ella Fitzgerald...

Summertime and the livin’ is easy
Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high

Oh your daddy’s rich and your ma is good lookin’

So hush little baby, don’t you cry

One of these mornings

You’re goin’ to rise up singing

Then you’ll spread your wings

And you’ll take the sky

But till that morning

There’s a nothin’ can harm you

With daddy and mammy standin’ by
Perfect. My best Summer.
what´s next?
I have been reorganizing my Studio, moving things around start again...
This is the way life is. After a trip or a break, start again...
In Meditation, after a distraction, start again...
in health, after a healing treatment, start again...
Here I am. Alone, home, back. Open.
To whatever Life invites me to do in my Studio, or with myself.
With Ricardo. We shall see.
