I always thought of blogs as being narcissistic, business related, or as my sister's, a way of keeping in touch or memorializing.

But, by necessity, I am learning a lot about myself. I find I need to get my thoughts out, and it helps me to know that someone else will read them. So I have created this little space for myself, to express the things I have trouble saying (be it emotional or physical trouble), to share what I'm going through, and what I'm learning through it.

I absolutely welcome comments. It's nice to know how people relate to what I'm saying.

Denial and flow

Today I was in denial. I was also in flow.

Flow is that state of being in which time is lost. It happens when we do something that hits the perfect balance between ability and challenge, which we enjoy doing. It's a moment of creativity and pure engagement. It is followed by a sense of satisfaction and peacefulness.

I was there today. And I got lost in the flow, didn't realize my body was getting tired, because of the lovely feeling of engagement. I sure felt the satisfaction, but my peacefulness was marred with the harsh reality that as soon as flow ended, my brain keyed into the ache in my muscles, and the pressure in my head.

Oooops. One step backwards. Many forwards to go!


  1. Be bold and go forth
    Like it was meant to be,
    Your dreams are the gifts
    That will set you free.

    Quierete mucho corazon, I know I do.

  2. Aie...no more lunches? Or different ones? I know a good place! it's called Hotel Gelato, on Eglinton and Avenue. But next time you could also come to my house for lunch and we could have it in front of the TV! Sounds like a good plan? But no pressure...I will still be your friend :)

  3. Goodness, no! Lunch is still very very good for me. Just not hours and hours lost in cognitively challenging activities! So just don't get me started...
