Let go, let love

We often wonder, each and every one of us, which is better, to be with someone or to be alone; but, that is the question. Now, reality will have us thinking that we need to be part of a duo, but in our hearts, the only way a duo will work is if we are able to be a solo…ironic no?  We long to be with someone, yet we yearn for independence, this is the way it goes.

Cubanismo: Circular or Linear

My dear friend and I were having breakfast a few years ago and, as I was sharing some of my personal reflections, she identified herself as a linear person. I felt honored to be in her presence because I am completely circular … which is why the inspirational moment of being in a room full of Cubans drives my blog post this week.

The artists were visiting Boston and were at the gallery, and from the minute I arrived, our culture became our connection. Amongst the mingle and the camaraderie were moments of joy and laughter. The room filled with exuberance, as though we had all known each other for a lifetime. In essence, that is what it feels like when people come together in a community with like-mindedness about a specific love of life, whether it is a goal or passion. The vivacity of the unity outweighs whatever else is happening at the time.
