Corner View "Experience"

"The meaning of life i to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away" (Pablo Picasso)

I think I found so many gifts in my life, and some are in this picture: A painting of a dearest person, whose experience gave a sense to my life. We walked together for 5 years, I, taking care of her children, she mothering a troubled teenager and preparing her for her adult life. She's gone three months ago; but here I am, remembering her, and everything she thought me; and thinking about the gifts life gave it to me: I traveled, got married, had a child, made puppets and kites, cried and laughed, and saw myself getting old, and still wishing to learn.  All things life is made of. Thanks Mamie.

He tenido muchos dones en mi vida, y algunos están en esta foto: El cuadro de una querida persona, cuya experiencia dio un sentido a mi vida. Hemos caminado juntas por 5 años, yo, cuidando a sus niños, ella, haciendo de madre a una adolescente con mil problemas, preparándola para su vida de adulta. Tres meses atrás, desplegó sus alas, y aqui estoy, recordándola, y pensando a todo lo que me ha enseñado, y a todo lo que la vida me ha dado: He viajado, me he casado, he tenido un hijo, hice marionetas y barriletes, he llorado y reído, y me veo envejeciendo; pero todavía deseando aprender y aprender. Es la vida. Y es maravilloso. Gracias Mamie.
