When I slipped into this beautiful silk dress by Stella Nolasco I felt like “,Flaming June”,.  The beauty of the surroundings together with the very flow of the dress left me mesmerised. Beauty fashion makeup.

I believe Raquel Pérez-Puig, a prominent Puerto Rican architectural photographer, surely captured the moment.

Flaming June is a painting by Sir Frederic Leighton, produced in 1895. Painted with oil paints on a 47-by-47-inch (1,200 mm × 1,200 mm) square canvas, it is widely considered to be Leighton’,s magnum opus, showing his classicist nature. It is thought that the woman portrayed alludes to the figures of sleeping nymphs and naiads the Greeks often sculpted.

The actresses Dorothy Dene and Marie Lloyd, who were depicted in paintings by various Pre-Raphaelite artists, have been variously credited with modelling for the work.

Flaming June disappeared from view in the early 1900s and was only rediscovered in the 1960s. It was auctioned shortly after, during a period of time known to be difficult for selling Victorian era paintings, where it failed to sell for its low reserve price of US$140 (the equivalent of $1,126 in modern prices). After the auction, it was promptly purchased by the Museo de Arte de Ponce in Ponce, Puerto Rico, where it currently resides.

No hay época más alegre que la Navidad y no hay mejor manera de disfrutarla que no sea compartiendo con familiares y amistades.

Es una época de celebraciones donde uno viste sus mejores galas para compartir y disfrutar de entretenidas charlas.

En esta ocasión quise invitar a dos queridas amigas, la diseñadora Gabriela Nevarez y a Tilky Morales, para juntas pasar un buen rato y disfrutar de un rico champagne, Moët &, Chandon.

Cuando invito familia y amistades, me gusta ser la mejor anfitriona haciendo que se sientan a gusto y relajados.  Agazajo a mis invitados personalmente, de esta manera logro que  se sientan como en su propia casa.

La mesa impecablemente decorada con cristales y espejos utilizando los colores rojos y verdes que destacan la tradición y alegría de la época pero con un toque de distinción.

Brindar por la amistad, la salud, la prosperidad.  Dar gracias a Dios por todo lo que tenemos y esperar que el año nuevo llegue lleno de bendiciones.

Me siento muy feliz y realizada cuando mis invitados la pasan bien y  la conversación se hace íntima y amena.  Todo el ambiente contribuye a ello.

Una rica comida, un hermoso ambiente logró que tanto mis amigas como yo pasáramos una tarde agradable y agradecidas de poder disfrutarlo en salud y  camaradería.

Disfruto mucho de la buena mesa y de un buen champagne.

Muchas gracias a la tienda Palacios por su impecable decoración y ambientación.

I love the color blue.  It brings me peace so I wear it a lot.  I think it blends perfectly with most skin colors.  Blue as in sky, yes.  But also our crystalline waters in the Caribbean are blue. It strikes me as funny when people say they feel “,blue”, when they’,re feeling down.  I’,m blue when I feel relaxed, when I’,m in love, when I’,m in complete  harmony with the universe.  So blue it is for me. Blue as in peaceful. Blue as in calm. Blue as in happy.

A while ago I was interviewed by a very good friend and ex-co-worker and she asked me if life had been good to me.  “,Life is life”,, I answered, “,and I have decided to make it good.”,

On a day like today,  I want to give thanks for all my blessings.  Last year, I was at my extended American family’,s home celebrating Thanksgiving feeling quite miserable.  It was my first Thanksgiving without my husband who had passed away only five months earlier after battling disease after disease for three consecutive years.  Ten years ago today, we had gotten married and had promised each other to be together “,Till death do us part.”,

But life is so fascinating and oh so unexpected if you only stop to contemplate all that surrounds you.  If you realize that we find ourselves in a temporary place and that we have the responsibility  to make the best of it.  This Thanksgiving I am happy because I decided to make life a happy place.  I took charge of my life, as I always do.

At this very moment I am surrounded by family, health, was given the opportunity to  combine all my skills to create a community of women who inspire me and I’,ve looked up to them for advice.  Women who also might feel lonely either because they are going through an empty nest syndrome, have lost a loved one, have been left by their significant other (and maybe it was his loss)  and have welcomed me into their hearts and  have made me part of their lives.

I know life is very unpredictable.  I have been there.  Tomorrow is tomorrow and I will deal with what comes my way then.  I want you to do the same.  But now, today,  I  give thanks to God and to the fact that I have been given this unique and magnificent opportunity to connect with so many people in such a positive manner.

May God bless you all and may you also be aware of all the beauty and blessings that surround you.

 Open your eyes, open them wide and let that lovely light shine in.

This is our opportunity. We only have one life.

Let’,s make it a memorable one.

Remember please, if you don’,t like to read about these matters just skip this post:

The last time we went to Cleveland Clinic, where my husba nd passed away, I travelled with a nurse who I had hired because Rafi was already very delicate and he couldn’,t stand on his own two feet. It was honestly the worst trip I had done with him on my countless trips abroad. We literally had to carry him and lay him in the back seat of the car to take him to his different appointments. He had a Pet Scan done on the first day. The following day we went to the neurologist. The neurologist was a very kind man who dedicated all the time in the world to him and broke the news to us that Rafi’,s cancer had spread to his bones and to many organs. This news was devastating for both of us. He started asking Rafi several questions to see how well he was coordinating his thoughts. He asked him to draw two interlocking pentagons which he tried to do to the best of his abilities and then the doctor asked him to write a sentence. Rafi wrote quite clearly: I love my wife.

La última vez que viajé con Rafi a Cleveland Clinic, donde se complicó todo y murió, viajé con una enfermera la cual había contratado porque ya Rafi estaba muy débil y no se podía sostener en sus propias piernas. Fue el peor viaje que hice con él porque literalmente teníamos que cargarlo y acostarlo en el asiento de atrás del auto para llevarlo a sus diferentes citas médicas. El primer día se le hizo un Pet Scan y al día siguiente lo llevé a su primera cita que era con el neurólogo el cual nos dio la noticia de que el cáncer de Rafi había progresado y que literalmente ya estaba cundido. El doctor era sumamente amable y dedicado. Le hizo muchas preguntas a Rafi para ver como andaba neurologicamente hablando. Le pidió copiara dos figuras pentagonales entrelazadas y después le pidió escribiera una oración. Rafi escribió (en inglés): Amo a mi esposa.
