First, I have a request from my daughter, Diana, who wants to see some pictures of our dogs - maybe she thinks we lost them. But not to worry - they are treated like royalty around here.
Citlali's favorite perch is Diana's and Laura's old crib,which I filled with blankets, etc. and then covered with fabric, that now resides in my new "office" in the second bedroom upstairs. Yes, the decor needs some work, but for the moment it functions and it is all mine. And Citlali's.
Now I want you to see the beautiful bougainvillea that I pass by every morning while walking the dogs down our street. It's dry season in Mexico City right now and this is when the bougainvillea is even more vibrant than during the rainy season. It's always been one of my favorite shrubs - unfortunately it doesn't exactly thrive in Chicago.
Since this is a random sort of day, I'll leave you with this rather long quote:
"Most of the time - 99 percent of the time- you just don't know how and why the threads are looped together, and that's okay. Do a good thing and something bad happens. Do a bad thing and something good happens. Do nothing and everything explodes.
And very, very rarely - by some miracle of chance and coincidence, butterflies beating their wings just so and all the threads hanging together for a minute - you get the chance to do the right thing."
Bye for now,
