Words, once they are printed, have a life of their own. ---Carol Burnett

When I remember all The friends so link'd together,
I've seen around me fall,
Like leaves in wintry weather
I feel like one who treads alone
Some banquet hall deserted,
Whose lights are fled, whose garlands dead,
And all but he departed.
--Sir Thomas More Oft in the Stilly Night

We do not remember days; we remember moments.
--Cesare Pavese, Burning Brand Diaries 1935-1950

Fortunate women

They were called Five Golden Women because of their wealth and their continous support in helping the less fortunate. Could it be that you are one of them?
Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your gold and good health have vanished. ----Og Mandino
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.---Winston Churchill

"When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes, I all alone beweep my outcast state, And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries, And look upon myself, and curse my fate, Wishing me like to one more rich in hope, Featured like him, like him with friends possess'd, Desiring this man's art and that man's scope, With what I most enjoy contented least; Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising, Haply I think on thee, and then my state, Like to the lark at break of day arising From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate; For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings That then I scorn to change my state with kings."---William Shakespeare(1564 - 1616)

more stories

Etta has been talking endlessly about my siblings, my nieces and nephews back home and, I am glad listening to all her stories. Accompanying her stories are some pictures and videos that make it more like it was just a block away from where I am and, not miles and miles away crossing the land and sea.......

Here, you can find the picture that I really like. Betina, Cyrene, Jed and Luis participated at their annual Christmas presentation in the church. Some of you may have read the story of Betina. ... She is deaf and mute and her bones are growing very slowly. .... In this picture you can see that she looks so normal and as if she is really singing and doing the same things other children are doing on stage but, actually you can only hear her own sounds and sometimes she was just opening her mouth.....

All my nieces and nephews have send me letters and small things they have made. I was really excited reading and opening their little gifts to me. Eunice have rolled a lot of small papers with a word handwritten in it like for example kind......and I open each rolled paper everyday and read what was written on it, rolled it again and pass it to another person later. Really fun. This is what it really means having a big family, lots of fun and memories to keep only that, I get to experience it very seldom now since I am the only one who is far away.

a lot of pictures

Betina's birthday last year together with her brother Jed and some friends.

Etta and Isay
The good news is---My youngest sister Etta is here with me for some weeks and I am so happy being reunited with at least one of my siblings. It means endless talking and walking and some travelling. She has also brought some pictures and videos of my nieces and nephews. Here, you can find the pictures of Betina and Jed(the children of my younger sister - remember my Illustration Friday entry for Help?) and the pictures of Cyrene and Luis- the two youngest children of Etta.
