About Trading Stories...

Yesterday I sat with a friend had lunch and talked about every topic under the sun. Yesterday we traded stories. Stories about lovers and horrible families. We traded stories as if we were trading baseball cards. We checked the stats, percentages, home-runs, outs and the superpowers those situations gave us. There sat two girls filled with nostalgia and little remorse.

My imaginary friends speak in Spanish.

No regrets we kept chanting at the end of each story. Because if it wasn't for those that made it difficult while were traveling through life we would not be here.The fish played witness of the atrocities we've watched and the pain we had endured. They stared at us as if eavesdropping and to some of the stories you could see them gasp. They knew a few things about challenges and having to dig deep searching for their own superpowers.

FYI: This is not the first time the animal kingdom speak on these pages.


Right there on Broughton street at the Chinese restaurant that reminds of NYC, two girls traded stories and only the fish were there to witness.


“The essential is to excite the spectators. If that means playing Hamlet on a flying trapeze or in an aquarium, you do it.”

 Getting crafty:

I really want to host a summer party where I can decorate with these jellyfish lamps
Easy to do after close inspection...
