Merry Christmas

Merry christmas!  Was santa good to you?  He was good to me!  

I'm starting the horse search process next week.  I have a Thoroughbred to look at in PA, and a few other prospects including some in NJ, MD, and possibly Kentucky!  Wish me luck!

No me ha dejado

In Sevilla there is a city motto that is hard to miss when you are walking around the city.  It is used everywhere.  Loosely translated it means "It has not abandoned me".   When you leave the city, the city never leaves you.  That's how I feel about Seville.  As much as I miss it right now, I was ready to get home.  I've been spending the last few days with friends and family and it was definitely time.  I think that I could have done a year, but I would have had to be mentally prepared for it.  

In my last few days in Sevilla I spent the time saying good bye to my spanish friends, I went out to the farm one last time (not truly a last time because I will go back), and I took one last paseo on Sunday, the day before I left.  I was able to finish my shopping, and say goodbye to my city.

One day to see all of Rome? Sure.

And is there time to see the Pope? Why not.

From the top of the hill, Florence, Italy

I will get back to these different entries and really write - I swear - but for now, photos from the lovely Firenze, Italy.

Where the streets are made of water

El año nuevo, tienes una resolución?

As I think about my imminent return to the lovely U. S. of A.  I can't help but think of the coming year and what possibilities it will bring.  Last year right around that time I experienced some huge changes in my life, and rid myself of some of the toxicity that had intertwined itself in my life over the years.  While not a clean break, I can only hope this year's new years is less eventful.

For the first time since attending Elon I will be on campus for January term.  I am going to be completing my practicum with the Alamance Partnership for Children.  I'm still not totally sure what my role will be, but I was placed here so that I can continue to use the command of the spanish language that I have gained over the past three months.  I will be working from 9-5 each day except Tuesdays, Tuesdays I have a three hour class which I assume is to discuss what we are experiencing and learning in our placements.
