I am working on a song about happines and nature. it´s about singing to the trees and the hills and the birds and the sun and it´s also about wanting now to be happy and shine as bright as the sun, who is so much bigger and brighter than me. could i ever feel as big and shiny as the sun? i feel the sun is like a grandfather and last night i dreamt of my grandpa tata jaime who passed two years ago and loved children so much.
this photo is from our walk into our favorite part of the surroundings on a beautyful after rain morning.

BREAKFAST JOY



I just loohoove breakfast time, don´t you? When you´re in no hurry at all and you can have a nice long breakfast. This picture is from a few days ago with homemade bread, tiny avocados, tomato slices and cofee, yum!!
Right now I´m sitting in the kitchen about to make breakfast. It´s nine a m and I just got my hands frozen by washing the dishes with cold water, since we only have hot water in the bathroom. I´m going to try and make a sort of flour tortilla cause we only have a very small piece of bread left. Enjoy your day!

ps: I love this picture! breakfast joy!

Unschooling Parents, how about that



I read this at Marvelous Kiddo, and I´m diggin´it, do you dig it?
this blogger thing is really kicking into me. jesus, now.

images are of leaks and my dress

the text here if you wanna read:

•Show respect for all of a child's interests equally.
•Keep the child in mind as I go through life, so that I notice things that might be of interest to that child.
•Find ways to include the child in my own daily life - live a more"open-book' life than the norm.
•Follow up on things the child is interested in - and do this in a wide variety of ways, not only by "getting him a book on it."
•Live a family life that is rich with experiences of a variety of kinds both at home and outside the home.
•Have resources around the home that are interesting and stimulating - things that will encourage exploration of ideas.
•Discuss things - spend time in conversation. This is probably overall the most important parental"action' involved in unschooling.
•Have a playful attitude - play together, have fun, appreciate the amazing world around you. Don't be cynical, be able to be amazed and find the world a fascinating place. THIS is the most important attitude for an unschooling parent.
•Be self-aware of your own thinking and behavior. Purposely stretch your imagination - question your own assumptions, check your own automatic impulses.
•Be very observant of what your child is really doing - don't view him/her in a shallow superficial way. Recognize that there is a reason for a child's actions, that a child is born to learn and is always learning. Get to know your child's own special favored ways of learning
•Wholeheartedly support a child's passions EVEN if, to you, they don't look like "education."

PIECE OF CAKE!

Yei to home grown goodies!



photo of the cookies I made following this recipe

Olrrait well, i´ve been reading a lot of amizing blogs lately, simple blogs mostly run by women who are moms, maybe it´s just a generation thing, since I´ll be 29 this October and most of these mums are around this age. I feel like I need to really open up some more on my writing to make it interesting, even if there may may be one reading, well who cares! this may be just for me and for "posterity".

I am in a point in my life where I feel like I´ve done so much and yet so little. Maybe it´s not good to be comparing oneself with others, but for me that´s rather hard, I just do it. I have studied, dance, trapece, music, singing, yoga. My only real jobs have been as a yoga teacher and as a waitress. Right now is kind of a transition/pause period, because I´m living here in Tierras Blancas, in family´s farm with my boyfriend and learning how to use pro tools, a software that allows me to record and edit music. The main reason why I even decided to come here in the first place was, well maybe two reasons. First, I just always had dreamt of living like this, in nature and even more with the man I really love, and second, to support him and give him a chance to really focus 100% on finishing his current painting project. Now I do feel rather unfullfilled profesionally, I must say. I´ve become an expert at changing my mind and changing directions in my life and not such an expert at finishing what I´ve started or disciplining myself. There´s still so much I want to do, sometimes I feel like I´m too old to start anything new and then I realize, you know what? I not!

I know after the time we spend here there will be a lot more movement and hhopefully changes and challenges and well, life, and for now even though it may sometimes be trobuling my little head, just enjoying this peacefull beautyfull and rather romantic time in our lives.

water please mama earth!


Hi there! well we´ve been having some water issues down here... we have no water! So we got chicho from next door to donate some for us and here you can see Carlos doing some traspasing. It has been quite a ride to be here, I´m happy and feel blessed. We plan to stay here for about one more month, then go to California to work some, and after a few travels come back to this area and hopefully get our own property. So exiting to imagine the future. bye! blesss u!

I wish to expand my conciousnes

I don´t like my previous post, is was empty and meaningless.
Also I think it´s not necessary to speak of such things, personal, yet superficial.
I was happy to recieve a comment from anna rummey whose blog I really like,
but it was a lame post.
I have been feeling kind of sad and lost the last few days, lacking meaning from life.
I feel I need to let go of old thought patterns and begin to be more conciouss about who
I really am, why I am here in this world and what my mission is, in accordance to not
only me but the entire Earth. I believe we are passing through a time of change and it
can sometimes be difficult, since our brains need to adjust to a new era.
I resolve to start exercicing because i don´t want to become fat and to take myself
more seriously, including my projects such as the recording of a music album.
This is very inspiring: worldpuja

Namaste!
