The year of the orange covers.

The year of the orange covers.
Bonus points if you know how The Underground Railroad (book) on slavery in the USA is linked to Kim Gordon's biographic book Girl in a Band. They are both great books. The Underground Railroad by brilliant Colson Whitehead should be a required reading in American schools.


OK,
here is how they relate...

Sonic Youth is on the Acknowledgements of The Underground Railroad, Kim Gordon was one of the wonderful 4 members of Sonic Youth, one of my favorite bands ever. Worth mentioning that David Bowie and Prince are on the acknowledgements too.

Reading and spending time with the cats
And binge-watching TV

Friend and neighbor Mike

My neighbor Mike has been really sick since Friday.
My mom and I had to call the paramedics.
He has pneumonia and I feared for his life.
He has no family and just 1 friend apart from me.
All weekend and Monday night I thought he would die.
He didn’t want to eat at all.
Yesterday, after I saw the beautiful page
from the calendar my friend Izabela gave me,
about Miracles, I prayed for him all day at work.
When I went to see him yesterday evening,
he was much better!
He ate solid food and smiled
at the stuffed Gato I got him.
I do believe in miracles and the power of positive thinking.
So thankful he is OK.
Can’t wait to see him again tonight
to see how much he has recovered
while I am at work.

Mike feeling better and Gato taking care of him

San Diego Botanical Garden

actually in Encinitas,
spent a wonderful day with my mom.

Glad I posted before the end of June,
most come back dear blog.

The San Diego Botanical Garden
is a beautiful place!
I dreamed of the strangely beautiful
African trees, the exotic plants from Hawaii
and the strength of New Zealand leaves.

I dream of walking there again!

Die deutschen Leute wissen

Deutsche Leute zum Veganer werden!
Das ist sehr gut :)


The current winner in the race to make vegan food products? Germany.

This may come as a surprise to anyone who’s gone to a German bar and tried to order a meatless meal, only to end up gnawing sadly on a giant pretzel.
Germany produced 18 percent of the world’s new vegan creations in 2016 — more than any other country, CNN reports.

Vielen Dank Deutschland, Ich Liebe Sie!

Vegan biscotti and life gifts

Life gives you little surprises. I met Nancy 2 years ago at the vegan Thanksgiving potluck, she lives around the corner of my house. Many times I wondered when we would run into each other. A little background, I have been stressed, angry, sick, and disappointed the past couple of weeks (mostly at the world, you know? Politics, people eating animals 😡). But after talking to my dear friend Izabela, I had a switch of heart, kindness, spirituality, metaphysics, all the things that were really important to me in Mexico City started coming back to me... so what happens? I walk out my door and there is Nancy with one of her older pugs. I recognized the EG letters on her tee under her sweatshirt, the full message was VEGAN. So we talked and reconnected, I was on my way out but when I came back home, she left me a beautiful box with homemade baked vegan biscotti, I haven't had biscotti since I became a vegan. So life reminded me that I have a more positive view, which btw is more in my nature, gifts will be given 💓
