AUTUMN COLORS IN SPRING (THE END, PART XVII)

NORA-01It is very common to hear that words are carried away by the wind, but actions from many occasions remain tattooed even in the soul. If we do not take care of our way of speaking, acting, or thinking when we interact with the people we love, we can cause wounds that remain open like living flesh embraced by the heat of the fire or marred by the salt of bitterness that corrodes the heart of those who have been victimized; consciously or unconsciously, we are the people that hurt whom we also love.

IMAGES OF THE PAST

IMAGEN-01From a very young age I began doing different jobs. I think I was around five years old when I asked my father to buy me a shoe polishing box, because I wanted to start working and earn my own money. I was very happy when my father gave me my little box to shine shoes. So, I developed the job of a shiner for several weeks during which I was very successful, until the older shiners kicked me out of the central park of my town, since they got angry when they observed how people preferred to queue and wait for me to shine the shoes. I think that happened because of my age, since seeing me so small people felt motivated to give me their shoes so that I could shine them.

AUTUMN COLORS IN SPRING (PART XVI)

There are emotions that are difficult to bear or control due to the cataclysm they cause inside our bodies. Especially when they attack us directly in the heart. Human emotions are instantly aroused as positive or negative reactions to external influences that we cannot control. And although they can start as simple sparks of fire, they can grow uncontrollably, forcing our brain to suppress all bodily functions to avoid suffering from an intense pain that could destroy us completely.

AUTUMN COLORS IN SPRING (PART XV)

NORA-01It is a difficult to aspire to eternal happiness in a mortal world where imperfection traces and defines the schemes of an ideal marriage; unless you are willing to respect, forgive, love without limits, and persevere day by day, without losing the focus that has led us to establish a union by common consent as we walk facing challenges on the road of life. Learning to live and enjoy every moment that we spend with our loved one. Strengthening every quality or aspect that has taught us to LOVE.

Mrs. NIEVES.

raindrops

Yesterday, it rained all day. There were times when the rain became very heavy with a lot of wind. Then it turned into a gentle drizzle; over which, my thoughts rushed to navigate a mighty river of memories. While listening to music from the seventies, my spirit moved to the streets of my town, to the years of my childhood. To those streets of dust and stone on which I used to run barefoot.

AUTUMN COLORS IN SPRING (PART XIII)

OTONO-27We have probably heard on occasion that the world is very small and since it is round, sooner or later we will meet again with people whom we have not seen in a long time by chance or coincidences of fate. Alicia uses to live in the same neighborhood as Eduardo, she was a neighbor of her parents and a close friend of Eduardo’s mother. Although Eduardo knew that Alicia had a daughter, he never had the opportunity to meet her, because Alicia and her husband sold her house and moved out of town months after Nora was born. However, Alicia had kept in touch with Eduardo’s mother, but she always came alone whenever she visited them. Approximately, more than five years had passed since the last time Eduardo saw Alicia, so Eduardo’s astonishment when he met her again was overwhelming for him. Especially since she was Nora’s mother, who was physically identical to Ana and it was impossible for Alicia not to know that, because Eduardo’s mother had sent her photos of him and Ana’s wedding, after Ana died.

AUTUMN COLORS IN SPRING (PART XII)

OTONO-19The expectation of being able to do something wonderful in our lives fills us with so much excitement that it is difficult to maintain our normal body functions. The night before Nora had stayed awake until dawn. Then tiredness overcame her, forcing her to fall asleep involuntarily with the image of Eduardo’s face in her mind. The next day, Nora was still sleeping in her bed, breathing peacefully, while the sound of the wind was heard hitting the roof of the house, the raindrops gradually falling to the ground. Thus, with the sound of rain little by little Nora woke up that morning.

AUTUMN COLORS IN SPRING (PART XI)

OTONO-52How it hurts to breathe when sadness oppresses the heart, especially when the pain grows inside our chest, limiting the space available for our lungs to work properly. With slow movements Eduardo tried to open his eyes, the spotlights intensity blinding him. Little by little his pupils got used to the light and his brain began to understand the images he received through his eyes. Eduardo recognized that he was in the nurse room at the university.

NOBODY DIES ON CHRISTMAS EVE

PASADO-02NOBODY DIES ON CHRISTMAS EVE

A phrase that resonated in my brain every December and that had a lot of meaning throughout my childhood each time a family member or friend got sick was, nobody dies on Christmas Eve. My mother would repeat it to me, while she caressed my hair when she saw me worried about someone’s health. Then my Spirit would rejoice, my faith strengthened and the hope that everything would be okay was reborn in my heart.
