The Doomed Towers






Today, I passed along the eerie pit, looking down through the metal net as the men worked diligently toward a new beginning. I stared at the solid wall which stood stoically at their side protecting them from the river that indifferently ran behind the wall. Silently, I stood alone with the memories of events I never saw; but even though I heard the cries, the moaning and the sound of bodies crashing against their deadly spots. I saw the smoke rising toward the skies, while the flames licked the granite walls and metal frames. I became aware that although I had not been there, I was now, resurrecting the doomed event with the lingering left energy of those gone. I escape towards the end of the aisle searching for my own life, but it was only until that night that I found it embracing my children with an almost forgotten tenderness that made me smile.

Abracadabra! Stop the Curse!

Tenafly/Bergen County, New Jersey, United States
The life of a unique and incredible woman whose fate was to be followed by drama, comedy and tragedy. She wandered under a lucky star, which protected her at all times, thus, overcoming the odds that forced her to swim against the high tides; but surprisingly, arriving onto safer and better shores by miracle or by her own strength. Character: Gentle as and orchid but solid as an oak tree. Distracted, but attentive to the best and worth things of life. Indifferent to the time that passes by, but always aware of the beauty around her. Understands and accepts pain, physical or mental, which she believes is absolutely needed in order to grow wiser and happier. She thinks that Happiness is within our reach and unhappiness is not letting go of things or people that don't belong to us any longer.
