“PUERTO RICAN-NESS”

These are very recognizable symbols of the Puerto Rican people.

The ‘pava‘ is the straw hat used by the ‘campesinos‘ while working the sugar cane fields using their ‘machetes‘.

The Puerto Rican flag is the utmost symbol of our Island.

The ‘mono-estrellada‘ … one star only.

The Statue of Liberty is also a very important symbol to the Puerto Rican diaspora.

Many Puerto Ricans moved to New York in search of a better life,

(my parents included in the 1930’s).

All memories etched in my mind, heart and soul!

REMINDS ME OF MY PARENTS

I was the fifth of seven children.

Of all of us, only two made it to adulthood.

My parents were married for 64 years.

It wasn’t perfect but it was an accomplishment.

My Mom developed Alzheimer’s and was bedridden for 10 years before crossing over. My Dad never left her side.

My Dad passed on several years after my Mom.

This is how I picture them now.

Love you and miss you much.

The void is always there.

I wish …… if only!

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
