I see my mind as a tapestry woven through with memories, dreams and thoughts.

Wednesday with Words




I am off soon to meet up with my sister, in Tampa. We hope to swim again with manatees, which is one of the most glorious experiences of my life ... pushing through the tangled roots into the lagoon and watching, being still and watching, as the manatees and their babies slowly rise to the surface for air and then waken to make their way out of the lagoon, through the narrow channel on their daily forage; picture rush hour on the metro escalators and you have it!

If and when I surface, I shall be back in blogland.

¡Hasta luego!
