Started Ottawa-Seattle, April 4, Air Canada, a long day. Finally the three of us arrive, finding Ricardo at the airport waiting for us. Alejandro flew via Toronto, Ricardo and I met him in Vancouver and the last small jump together. And here, at their lovely home a small-large family gathering, we are 8. Three in the basement, fortunately their house stretches out.

These days at Ricardo and Claudia's in Bellevue, Washington, beautiful Spring time with the sun out greeting us.. Family life, cooking together, some shopping, visits, Easter Sunday at the Unitarian Church, music, conversation. Specially good conversation. Be With Claudia and support her fight against Cancer...
Camila has also been here: beautiful, a grown woman now. Today traveling to Colombia, back to school. Finishing grade 10.
Tomas' 11 birthday with a family party, gifts and his special food.
We have been enjoying Ricardo and Claudia's daily life,  the kids, Samson, the dog. Their daily living, their daily fight against cancer.Courage, compassion, loving care, are real here.
Today, chemotherapy. Tomorrow, we will see. Taking one day at a  time is their wisdom. We join in.
Viaje desde Ottawa a Seattle por Air Canada. Un largo dia. Finalmente, nos encontramos con Ricardo y aqui estamos reunidos, la familia de 8... Desde alla en Ottawa nos acompa~nan Maria, Chema, Emilia y Luisa para completar la docena...
El sol nos recibe con una hermosa Primavera! Compartir la vida de la familia, cocinar, hacer las compras, celebrar la Pascua en la Iglesia Unitaria, oir m'usica y conversar. Especialmente, conversar. Acompa~nar a Claudia en su lucha contra el cancer.

Celebramos los 11 de Tomas con una fiesta familiar, regalos, comida especial. Estamos disfrutando la vida diaria de Claudia y Ricardo, los ni~nos y Samson, su perro. Pelear contra el cancer requiere de coraje, compasion, ternura y amor. Aqui esto es una realidad. Hoy vamos a la quimoterapia. Ma~nana, veremos que sigue...
Ellos viven dia a dia, es su Sabiduria.  Y nos unimos a ella.
