2014 was a heart-wrenching year. And to think it started peacefully.
Spring was characterized by run-jog-walks in the park, lovely dinners, wine tastings in barren vineyards. After telling somebody that my favorite food was dinuguan, I was impressed when dinuguan was prepared and served from scratch. One of my best friends and my sister came to visit and provide ample diversion.
Summer was balmy, perfect for road trips.
I wished those sunny days would never end. But they did. They always do. To make way for the fall. Which quickly became winter.
I thought that I would see the time when I could swing on that hammock one summer.
