  • The Arctic Blast hit Boulder on Monday, as I woke up to 67 degrees which dropped to 37 within one hour. On Tuesday it was in single digits. I can't say that it was a bad week to stay home and wait for November 14, 2014.

    In a few minutes, at 11:14, I will give birth to my first book, Twin Stories Cuentos Gemelos, Stories of Love and Magic in Two Languages. Just like any birth, the anticipation was killing me. I went from total confidence to "it's time to forget about this silly project". From meditative states to pulling out my hair.

    But today, the sun is out and the temperature when I awoke was a balmy ten degrees. The winter landscape smiles at me. The moon will rise much later, the last quarter moon, a time to release, let go, give birth. But I won't wait til then. I am ready at 11:14 to give the publisher the final go ahead.


    El golpe ártico llegó a Boulder el lunes, cuando me desperté con 67 grados fahrenheit que pronto se convirtieron en 37. El martes amaneció con temperaturas abajo de los diez grados. La verdad es que me vino bien esta semana, quedarme adentro de mi casa esperando que llegara el 14 de noviembre.

    En unos minutos, daré a luz a mi primer libro, Twin Stories Cuentos Gemelos, Cuentos de Amor y Pasion en Dos Idiomas. Como cualquier otro parto, la anticipación me costó mucho. Pasé de total confianza a "es hora de olvidarme de este proyecto ridículo". De estados meditativos a tirarme de los pelos.

    Pero hoy, salió el sol y la temperatura está semi tropical, arriba de los 10 grados fahrenheit. El paisaje invernal me sonríe. La luna saldrá mucho mas tarde, la luna menguante, un momento para soltar, largar, parir. Pero no esperaré hasta que salga la luna. Lista a las 11:14 para soltar mi bebe a la editorial.
