After a month in the States I am on my way back to Ecuador. I hadn’t seen my children for over a year so this was a trip to catch up and enjoy family ties. For the last four days we had a family reunion in Florida. Sometimes there is sadness that we work through. We missed Joan ( my late wife and mother to the children) who died in a car accident seventeen years ago. It still leaves a hole and she would have been so happy to be part of our gathering. Otherwise we are so lucky that everybody has good health and are doing well. As we grow older we forget how raising babies and children is all consuming. Talk about living in the moment. Spending time with my mother in law, children and four grandchildren was special.
Tomorrow I will be back in Vilcabamba and all the beauty of the mountains. I missed Susan, all our friends and our life on the farm.
