A calm day so far....

Today I went to my new job in a different University in town. It was wierd, dark at 7:00 a.m. I was so excited to start teaching and using new ESL teaching techniques....

The day flew by and had fun with my 3 different groups. Now I am listening and smelling the rain.

Everything is silence. Everything is calm. I can hear the some dogs far away....

I had some flashbacks while watching t.v. These thoughts were about people who live in Thunder Bay. Oh yeah I definetly keep in touch with some.

I woke up from my nap very tired. However, I must prepare all my week and go to a cvx meeting at Ibero, my ex-university where I graduated from L.R.I.... today I feel another person...totally the same time excited for what might be coming....

Signs and more signs...

Well, today I got up, went to a meeting and saw a student fr0m 10 years ago who I took to Confederation College in Canada and now she is a teacher and will be my colleague. I was shocked and loved the idea that I always treated them right.

After that I went to a store to change my gatto blaster and had to play a CD, which I only had English ones... and everyone stared at me and I laughed and said, I am an English teacher.

When I was leaving... someone stopped me and said he overheard I teach ESL. I nodded and let him talk. He works for Aeromexico and he´s a mechanic and 6 of his có-workers are looking for an English teacher... so I gave him my number and asked him his name... Francisco B.

So I thought I might as well do my business cards and went to the print shop and ordered them.
It was about time to start doing something to promote this skill outside of the Universities.

Thank you God for this day.

A Woman Should Have"

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE enough money within her control to move out and rent a place of her own, even if she never wants to or needs to...
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE . something perfect to wear if the employer, or date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour...
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE . a youth she's content to leave behind....
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE . a past juicy enough that she's looking forward to retelling it in her old age....
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE . a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra... A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE . one friend who always makes her laugh.. and one who lets her cry... A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE . a good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her family... A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE . eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems, and a recipe for a meal, that will make her guests feel honored... A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE a feeling of control over her destiny..
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... how to fall in love without losing herself..
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... how to quit a job, break up with a lover, and confront a friend without; ruining the friendship...
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... when to try harder... and WHEN TO WALK AWAY.. EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... that she can't change the length of her calves, the width of her hips, or the nature of her parents..
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... that her childhood may not have been perfect...but it's over... EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... what she would and wouldn't do for love or more... EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW.... how to live alone... even if she doesn't like it... EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW.. whom she can trust, whom she can't, and why she shouldn't take it personally...
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... where to go... be it to her best friend's kitchen table.. or a charming Inn in the woods.... when her soul needs soothing...
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW.. What she can and can't accomplish in a day... a month...and a year...

Así es

Cuando la inspiración me llega, de repente, solo siento ganas de escribir y decir o vaciar lo que pienso en el instante.

Estoy segura que ese ser existe ...ya no lo busco, no tengo por que forzar el tiempo, ni el espacio ni el lugar.

Llegarás solito, sin que nadie te lo pida. Solamente el destino. No tengo ni la menor idea de dónde te encontraré. Sólo sé que no serás perfecto y que por ende, yo tampoco lo puedo ser.

Si estoy cansada de creer que ya te conocí y que te encuentras lejos. Lo que si sé, es que existe un gran amor para darte cuando estes listo.

Viviré día por día, preparándome para continuar ser alguien que tenga impacto en la vida de los demás de una o de otra forma, pero siempre creando un efecto positivo y de esperanza, fe, caridad y amor.

Ayer que conocí a dos individuos, uno Frances y el otro Argentino, disfruté muchísimo de la plática y la compañía. No cabe duda que no estoy donde estaba. Quiero decir que no me estanqué, que he crecido y que ya no puedo ver de la misma manera o sentir de la misma forma como lo hacía hace algunos años. La sensibilidad la sigo teniendo. Y la razón? también. Y qué puede más? la razón o el corazón.... desgraciadamente donde el corazón manda no puede existir la razón.... y continúo con lo mismo de siempre.... pero como ignorar lo que la razón me dice?

Fe! Fe! y más Fe!

Faith? what is that? in who? in what? how so?

Fate......oh y algo que me dejó marcada ayer fué una entrevista con esta frase:

" Lo que te corresponde por derecho divino, nadie te lo podrá quitar" Wow, que paz me dejó esta frase!

Que interesante.....

Amor incondicional? que es? quién lo conoce?

Mi terapista me hizo darme cuenta que no mucha gente ama incondicionalmente..... y que lo que yo pueda sentir por alguien es simplemente amor incondicional..... sigo con dudas........ por qué amor incondicional? por que veo dentro del alma .... más allá del físico......simplemente me dejó pensando porque aún así existe conflicto......

Discerning.....What does it mean?

On my own definition, discerning, means to find deep inside yourself what bothers you and then find happiness and peace within you.

This weekend!

Everything started with going to the flee market with a friend of mine and her son. We bought some things, I bought an angel picture already framed and 2 pieces of clothing.

I left her at her place and came back home and cleaned up and washed clothes. Then I took a shower and had my nails done, make up on and went to meet a friend of mine who I had been talking to over messanger and nextel.

I parked my car and then saw him. We then went to eat to the Rincón Gaucho, after that we went to Barezzito where I saw my niece sing and two other nieces with their husbands. Wedidn´t join them. After that we went to Anthropía, which is a bar with people on stage singing only romantic songs. I went as a volunteer and sang amar y querer. Right after we took off and went into the Mariachi Place and sang with them for about an hour. We also had a dance.

After that it was about 3:30 a.m. and I went home and my friend to his hotel.
Next day...Saturday Aug. 1rst. We went to have breakfast together and then to the Explora park where we had a very relaxing time.

We then went to eat supper at the Garufa´s Restaurant (Argentinian). Had wine and laugh and talk all the time. Finally he had to get back to Mexico City and I went back home and had a great sleep for about 3 hours. Then I realized I needed some groceries..... so I left but on my way I felt like calling another friend and she invited me to a party where there was exactly the same mariachi band that played last night for me.... I sang again and danced. I finally came back come... around 12:·30 a.m. I did see nice people and met a pregnant ladie who didn´t stop dancing, that was amazing.

Counting my blessings...... Thank you God for having me under your eyes every second and guide me trhough my life. Thank you God for all the good friends that you have given me and for the ones that just have arrived to my life. Please keep them all safe from evil and help us all through the hard times.

Your daughter......Marilu.
