It was an early October morning...I arrived at an abandoned parking lot covered with tons of dry leaves...

When I stepped out of my car...I felt a gentle breeze...a sense of quiet, a sense of peace lingered in the air...

I noticed a pile of fresh fallen leaves, moist, glistening with morning dew...Through the eyes of miracle, I admired the beauty of those short lived droplets...I started walking on top of that pile...

My feet felt the caress of a soft, moist, velvety rug of the most wonderful leaves...There was an almost magical glow all

around me...This enchanted forest was beautiful beyond words...

Invigorated by my heartbeat, my jubilant spirit continued to ascend...

I truly felt a direct communion with a light of Divine brightness...


- Oh Radiant Light...how much I love Thee !!!

Your existence is clearer and more certain

than the existence of anything around me...

You create the whole universe anew at every

instant...Is it possible You love me so, so much?


I felt so completely grateful, humbled and fulfilled...

I thanked Life for the splendor and majesty of Creation...

for all my blessings...for every momentof my life...

for every beat of my heart...for every breath of inspiration...


This ethereal moment lasted about seven or eight minutes...

perhaps more...maybe it lasted one or two eternities...


Then everything went back to "normal."

I continued about my daily tasks and errands.

I proceeded to cross Ave. de Diego...to pay a "marbete" or registration sticker at the "Colecturia" at Minillas Government



The abandoned parking lot was where the Museo de Arte in Santurce is now located...It doesn't matter that parking lot

doesn't exist anymore...


The Museum guards its art treasures...But I treasure the ineffable beauty of that mysterious moment forever in my heart !!!

Ann Change and Lost
25 May 2017
Well, my plans changed today or should I say they were cancelled. I sat lost for a few hours, lost in thought, lost in the moment. It was a lovely thing. I realize I can change and go forward with some nice freedom, inspired by this story. I stopped a moment and wrote this comment and now I go.

Nice recount! Dreams are an interesting glance into our minds and seem quite elusive for me, remembering dreaming and forgetting the content most times. Is there something I am missing? Probably
Ann Clinic Rules

good rules vs bad rulesFollowing rules was extreme programming from infancy for me. First rule: You are here to help your mother, You are the servant of your family. I was taught to be an adult as an infant and only recently found the un-nurtured infant inside. In finding my infant I was able to stop crying for what seemed to be no reason. I have learned through much therapy that some rules are a method of abuse. I have learned to use better judgement in following rules. Some rules are for our...
