Hexagons Blog was born on Thanksgiving day 2018. I said then that it would be a place where inspiration was allowed, and committed to write an entry per month. I did so until my beloved sister found out that she had cancer. The last entry that she read was “#8 Unconditional Love is a Source of Inspiration”. She died three months later and, after that, I was unable to write. Then Coronavirus hit with all its consequences.

During this time I would re-read my own posts to try to inspire myself.

Even in unbearable distress, pain and confusion, we can manage to feel ourselves again.

El blog de Hexágonos nació el día de Acción de Gracias de 2018. Dije entonces que era un espacio donde se permitía toda inspiración, y me comprometí a escribir mensualmente. Eso hice hasta que mi adorada hermana descubrió que tenía cancer. La última entrada que leyó fue “El amor incondicional es fuente de inspiración”. Murió a los tres meses y después fui incapaz de volver a escribir. Entonces llegó el Coronavirus con todas sus consecuencias.

Durante ese tiempo me releía a mí misma para inspirarme.

Aun en circunstancias extremas de dolor y confusión es posible volver a ser nosotros mismos.
