Spring is Yellow

Hello friends

Yes it's been quite a while since I've blogged, I know shame on me.  Well the school year has finally come to a close and summer vacation has officially started.  My son Ramiro "graduated" from 2nd grade and I wanted to share my favorite piece of work of his from this past school year.  I think you will enjoy it too.

Spring Is Yellow

It tastes like marshmellow peeps
It sounds like waves crashing at Grandma's
It smells like french fries
It looks like a yellow cat
It makes me feel carefree

No it's not a Swedish holiday drink nor is it a mountain range neighboring the Matterhorn; but you are very close, maybe.  I'm sure you've all figured it out by now smarty pants; to blog or not to blog, it's the first thing that came to mind when deciding what I should name my blog.  Sounds fine but looks foreign otherwise.
I've been thinking about starting a blog for a few weeks now but I've resisted because I'm not sure I have anything entirely interesting to say. But after much thought I came to the conclusion that I've always enjoyed writing and that I'm going to use my blog as a cathartic experience, a tool I can use to write what I find difficult to say verbally.

So I invite you to enjoy my stream of conscious ride!!

Warning: not suited for anyone with an aversion to the English (and sometimes Spanish) written language and run on sentences.  When I do write something in Spanish I will do my best to translate it but quite honestly when I do throw in some Spanish it's because a word in English doesn't quite capture what I'm truly feeling.

Toodles for now!  I'll post later.

happy heart anniversary

On this day a mere 28 years ago on May 26, 1983 my mother (strongest, bravest woman I know) and my father (close personal friend of JC, yeah Him) entrusted their 13 year daughter's heart to Dr. Bowman (a true miracle worker) to perform his magic with precision.  Though it may have been one of the scariest days of my life (not to mention my mother's too)  I'm so glad we went for it and I am and will always be grateful to my family and doctors for renewing my life this day so many years ago.  Needless to say my heart is happy and though there have been some bumps along the way I can honestly say I would do it all over again.  So my intention throughout this blog is share my gratitude (and at times air my greivances)  in hopes that my heart will be blessed with another 28 years of good living.
