This angel was the one of the first portraits that I ever took in Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis. I visit her as often as I can.

A Secret View

Una Vista Secreta

As my daughter Ali and I walked through Santa Maria Magdalena De Pazzis, inspecting our favorite tumbas/tombs for damage from last year’s 2 hurricanes, (Yes!!!! I finally made it home for Thanksgiving), she noticed this view from the caretaker’s building.

Mientras mi hija Ali y yo caminábamos por Santa María Magdalena De Pazzis, inspeccionando nuestras tumbas / tumbas favoritas en busca de daños causados ​​por los 2 huracanes del año pasado, (¡Sí! Finalmente llegué a casa para el Día de Acción de Gracias), se dio cuenta de esta vista desde el edificio del cuidador.

Here is one of my favorite angels. She watches over her family with such patience and a sense of calm. Today the sun looked down and burst with joy.

How Many Ways Can We Say Please?

¿Cuántas maneras podemos decir, por favor?

No me sorprende que los números de ayer sean los mismos que los de hoy. No es que la gente no esté trabajando lo suficiente, es que el problema es gigantesco y claramente no hay una solución fácil. No se pueden ver los problemas en el panorama general, pero está claro en los detalles.

It doesn’t surprise me that yesterday’s numbers are the same as today’s. It’s not that people are not working hard enough, it’s that the problem is gigantic and there is clearly no easy fix. Can’t see the problems in the big picture, but it is clear in the details.

The AEE reports 99.82% of the homes and businesses throughout the island have power. Today is 275 days since Maria made landfall and 288 days since Irma made landfall on Puerto Rico. There are still 2,669 customers without power.

My empty hands

how can I make you see me, make you understand what you have taken from me, when I don’t even know why I let you?

Tomorrow is the first day of Atlantic Hurricane season. Are we ready?
