A Soft Place To Fall



One of my favorite books (Horse Whisperer) that became a movie with one of my favorite actors and one of my favorite songs.  It's been a rough year and I sure could use a soft place to fall like up in Montana or New Mexico in the hills near a rolling river with wide open spaces and of course a nice cowboy like Robert Redford to share it all with.

It turned out to be the wors...



Been watching this series of videos and the end is heartbreaking.  Mom still recognizes me and for now knows who I am but I know the day will come when I'll be like Joey!

Broken Halos



Someone wrote a song about my broken halo that used to shine and my broken wings that used to fly.   Stopped looking for the reasons and tired of asking Jesus why?! Think I'm becoming an atheist.

Virtue (Jesse Cook)

I have become such a fan of Jesse Cook and even more so since I finally go to see him live on Saturday at UH.  His music and the band just blew me away and had me in tears. His music has been on repeat mode at home, office, and car. Such talent!!

All Things Must Pass - George Harrison - Full Album



Really need to get a copy of this wonderful album.  I miss the days when I would sit at home, dim the lights, turn up the volume and unwind with a bottle of wine.

Mary Chapin Carpenter - "Transcedental Reunion"

Sweet memory from two years ago as I flew across a mighty ocean in giant bird's belly (KLM Boeing 747) for a Transcendental Reunion of sorts with a dear friend I had met years back in Seattle and had promised that I would visit her in Holland.   Mary Chapin beautifully captures the experience in her song.

From 20,000 feet high, I saw the lights below me, twinkling just like Christmas
We descended slowly and the curve of the world passed with all of that flying
Above a mighty ocean, and now we all are arriving...
Friends and relations leaping over hemispheres
Transcendental reunion and all borders vanish here
We are travelers traveling, we are gypsies together
we are philosophers gathering, we are business or pleasure
we are going or coming, we're just finding our way from night into day

Sheer Madness

Shear madness happened yesterday evening! Rather it was heavy duty loppers that I dropped on my foot that turned into a freak accident and sent me to the ER for a tetanus shot, heavy duty shot of pain medicine,  four stitches and an even bigger hit on my pocketbook.  Still it could've been worse and thankful the dang loppers didn't' go through my foot and mess up the bone or cut near an artery.  It looks worse than what it is and the soreness & swelling are starting to subside and not hopping along like I was last night.  The stitches will need to stay on for 7 days.  Again, thankful for great neighbors and friends calling to check on me..  Doc said I should be back on me feet in a day or two--just in time for the end of Spring Break vacation and work on Monday. In the meantime keeping the leg elevated and Cosmo is right next to me giving me some kisses!

Mrs. Jones

Me and Mrs. Jones--one of my all time favorite songs and Bublé does a decent job in this remake. Secret to share in that I want to be Mrs. Jones and having a thing going on with Mr. Jones even though we both know that it's wrong! Meeting him at a cafe and holding hands while the jukebox plays our favorite song. I imagine the cafe would be in NYC and as we say goodbye he would take me in his arms for a goodbye hug and the sweetest kiss.

ok, so the above is a dream only as I would never have an affair with a married man even though I've been approached on several occasions.

Bitter taste

In need of a serious adventure to cleanse this bitter taste of life after the horrible month that February was with mom's fall and her breaking her hip.  I just want to drive off into the forest only to emerge on a desolate beach and have a roaring fire under a beautifully lit starry night in which to fall asleep.

Old Love

...soaking up some much needed vitamin D. Dad's been missing mom-he brought her some pan dulce to share with her. Sadly mom's dementia is progressing and she barely acknowledges him which is difficult to witness as I know this pains my father.  He dearly loves my mom and misses her not being home with him while she's in rehab.  Time will tell when she can come home--if she can come home.  My heart breaks and the drives from Katy get longer and longer and are usually filled with tears.

I wish I would've taken you to Corpus then maybe we could've avoided that dreaded fall the next morning. My heart is breaking!!

The Resistance!

My poster for the Women's March here in Houston! What an incredible experience to participate in the march that was free of violence and full of love for my fellow sisters and brothers for that matter. No violence or defamation of property as that is totally unacceptable and inexcusable.    Solidarity was the overwhelming feeling and I can't believe the march was practiced on such a global level.  

On a side note: I  biked to the march with friends--loving my new bike!!!

MEMORIES by Elvis Presley (including lyrics)


Happy Blessed 60th Wedding Anniversary to my parents!  Can't believe it's been 10 years already since we celebrated your 50th and this sweet music that played as we danced that night together as a family. Those memories will always be pressed between the pages of mind.

Cannot wait to make more lasting memories on the 14th when we take our family photos.

El Alcahuete!

Sad news to hear on the passing of Bishop Flores today.  He was beloved by my family as we were kids when we moved to Houston and attended mass at his parish.  He knew my brother and me by our first names and always full of laughter and shared cookies or candy with us.  He was the main celebrant for my parent's 50 Wedding Anniversary on 1/13/2007 in Corpus and were honored to have him in our presence on that special day.  I will never forget his sermon, "quien fue el alcahuete que unio a Lupe y Goyo en su vida de amor"?  Fue Dios!!

One of the best explanations of grief that can sometimes last a life time ...
