As part of my deliberate effort to reenergize via virtual tools (Zoom, Skype, FaceTime or WhatsApp), I set up a call over the weekend with cousins in Mexico.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, only my cousin, Mariana, showed up.
We hadn’t spoken for over twenty years. But after the first, few awkwardish minutes and realizing it was just us, we began reconnecting.
We talked about the elephant in the world, Covid-19, and its impact on us. But then we talked about our travels, our families, discovering more about each other and what we want the future to hold. She also introduced me to a new artist: Hortensia Bueno. (If you're interested in exploring a new artist, her link is https://www.cosasonline.com/collections/hortensia-bueno.)
After we hung up, we exchanged a bit more via Messenger. I guess we weren't really ready to disconnect when we did.
I woke up today thinking about Mariana. My heart and mind expanding a little more with someone else in it.
Is there someone you can reconnect with and expand your heart and mind?
