    1. At least it’s sunny. Enjoy the sunshine and have a wonderful and blessed day.

      1. So do I. I am glad we belong to the same magical world ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. So lovely and so true to my belief in what life after death will mean for me. I am profoundly moved by the beautiful words you found to capture such a moment. Please be safe Gabriela and stay home as much as possible. I am very excited to read your book. I studied Shakespeare in college and read Poe a lot and I would rather enjoy your words. Love you beautiful Button. ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒธ

    1. Good morning my dearest Joni.
      I am so humbled by your beautiful comment. Thank you so much.
      “I am very excited to read your book.” I am honored every time you write that.

    1. I think I understand your interpretation ๐Ÿ˜‰ But that’s not the only possible one. Look for more ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Yap, you’ve made your point and I understand very well, but, this I am, especially รฎn this times of darkness. Yf we lost the sense of humor it’s all over.

      2. Oh, no, don’t worry about. I fully understand that humor helps us in difficult times. And we should try to keep our spirits up. I took no offense. I knew you were joking ๐Ÿ™‚ Take care.

  2. That photo, those words. Iโ€™d like to immerse myself in both of them. Iโ€™m curious, can you unlearn someone?

  5. You’ve a beautiful soul Gabriela, I love your thoughts and your extremely powerful, passionate and lovely poetry/prose and photography!

    un te quiero, una caricia y un adios,
    es ligero equipaje para tan largo viaje…
    cuidate mucho Gabriela,

    1. Muchas gracias, Francisco.

      Al partir, un beso y una flor,
      un te quiero, una caricia y un adios,
      es ligero equipaje para tan largo viajeโ€ฆ

      Al partir, un beso y una flor,
      una caricia y un adios,
      una lรกgrima del mar
      la pasiรณn de ayer
      no me olvides

      Have a wonderful rest of the day and thank you again for the beautiful poem and for the praise.
      Stay safe.

      1. Thank you so much Francisco. It’s a gorgeous song. I am so glad you sent it to me. I’ll take credit for the modifications ๐Ÿ™‚
        Next time you go out see if you can steal a spring flower from a garden… Don’t think High School. That is not what the Jesuits teach. Yet I don’t think it’s not such a big sin ๐Ÿ™‚
        Thank you for everything, Francisco. Be well. Be happy.

      2. Wow! Fantastic. When I was a little girl we had cherry trees in our yard. Yet I used to cross the street and steal cherries from our neighbor. I have no idea why I was doing that. I thought nobody knew. It turned out that everyone did. Haha!
        One day I will come to Valencia and we’ll steal a whole garden together. Then we’ll take the flowers and give each person in the street one. It will be a walk of flowers ๐Ÿ™‚

      3. Thatโ€™s a lovely lovely ideas Gabriela and in Valencia weโ€™ve many flowers as well as orange ๐ŸŠtrees in many of the streets of the city and Olivares in the river and rice in Albufera

      4. We’ll give everyone we meet a flower and an orange. We’ll have the party of flowers and oranges!

      5. Hehe..thatโ€™s even better! But…the oranges on those trees are sour oranges…we sell them to England where they make dulce de naranja ๐ŸŠ with them…so people will have to be satisfied with a flower from the stolen garden…

      6. Yes, but we will do it for one morning only. And we will steal them. And run with them in the streets ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I really like your blog. A pleasure to come stroll on your pages. A great discovery and a very interesting blog. I will come back to visit you. Do not hesitate to visit my universe. See you soon.

    1. I am humbled and honored by your words. Welcome to my blog. I follow you so I will visit your universe soon.
