hello blog friends... at the last minute i decided to follow my hopes of spending some time in madrid. i am writing to you from spain. i lived in spain for some years and when i returned to new york of course i missed my friends and community that i had made. well... things are a bit stressed so i am remembering to breathe...

i had made plans for my living arrangements, and it looks like my plans are not going to work out as i had hoped. so i am on the search for summer accomodations. wish me luck.

in addition, the airline has lost my luggage. well... lost? they hope to find it, and then find me wherever i am to return it.

one small bag made it with me to madrid. in it i have my books, shoes, and a toothbrush. i am wondering how much more do i need. it all seemed kind of romantic. an ascetic kind of existence. but after wearing the same clothes things are not looking so romantic any more.

one friend urges me to go on a shopping spree. she says the airline will reimburse me. i´m too much of a scardey cat to do that. what if they don´t pay me back? then i will be out of the dough. but i am trying to stay calm and i am telling myself that all will be fine and i might even get some good lessons out of this for future wisdom to draw upon.

i´m hoping all is well with you and hopefully when i post again, i and things will be a bit more calm...

Hi Audrey!

I definitely think that we're modern day penpals - what a clever term! The blogging world has opened me many doors into interesting people's lives. I absolutely love it.

Good luck with your luggage and accommodation adventures. Hopefully it will only be a memory soon. Keep us posted. If things get tough, say to yourself that one day this will make a good story to tell.

hola Lala, things seem to be looking up again. i did get my luggage and i was so happy to see mis cosas...

i'll be here for a short while, so if i venture south it would be wonderful to share a cup of tea with you or a tinto de verano. ...vamos a ver...

hi Susu, thank you for your words of encouragement. about the modern day pen pals... i thought of this when i began missing some of the things from home. i missed starting my day with a cup of tea and popping in to see what my blog buddies are up to. i was missing you all and have come to the understanding that we are pals, ...pen pals.

Jorge, thanks for popping in. i got your emails and i suspect we shall tomar algo cuando puedes. hablamos pronto...
