Feliz el fin de semana.!! Happy weekend.!! Yes, yes, I know it’s not really a holiday for Tecate to take a break. But I have a three day weekend, so it feels like a holiday to me 🙂 Albeit, a bittersweet one. Why is life always full of ups and downs.? Just when you have one part figured out, another seems to require more mending or tending. This weekend I am looking for an apartment and I have narrowed down the choices to 5 places.!! I am so psyched that any day now I will have my own space again.!! Any day now, I will see my furniture and belongings which I haven’t seen in three years since I left for Mexico. The first night in my new place, I may sit on the floor with my worldly possessions (what’s left of them) and cry…. It has been a long time coming.
It’s a peculiar life to be a wanderer which I have been these last few years. Before I was so rooted, you couldn’t get me to move to a different neighborhood in Chicago. And then Mexico happened, unexpectedly. I became the complete opposite of rooted. Now I am trying to figure out how to combine those two parts of myself. The part that wants to be rooted and surrounded by her belongings and the part that wants to be free and carry only what she needs. The one thing I do know is that I don’t want to do it alone anymore. I am looking for my perfect and unexpected compliment. Someone who is similar to me and yet different enough to be challenging and keeps things spicy.!! muy picante😉 But at the same time, I want honesty and trust and intimacy and deep sharing and understanding on both sides. I want my soulmate.
Am I asking too much.? I don’t think so. It is possible. I know it is. Just like with Kahlúa.! They combined two things that you do not expect to go together – coffee and rum.! And it works beautifully. So on the eve of my finding my new home – I raise a glass to all of you and wish you amor.! Beautiful, hermoso amor. May every coffee find their rum.! And every rum find their coffee.! Unexpectedly 🙂 Besos.! Y salud.!!
