on exploring

The last few days have been…well, exhilarating. And as I look back the last few months have been nothing but a crazy mixture of all possible emotions, such as loss, grieve, transformation, adaptation, exploration and a totally new adventure for all three members of our tiny familia. Simply put all of us are doing fine, thanks. It’s just the time and space that have changed for us. Sami is having a blast with his loving grandparents to my complete amazement, as I was expecting him to be throwing fits left and right and not to mention to fully protest once we leave. It’s been ten full days that we haven’t hugged and smooched, but thank goodness for the almighty Skype, so that I can actually see how relaxed and happy he is, even without mommy. As sad as this sometimes makes me feel, I realize that there is nothing better in the whole wide world than the smile of your prodigy. So I take a full breath and remind myself that he is his own person, his own universe and we all are there to support, and sometimes to just sit and watch him develop. I am so sad that we are missing major milestones such as him stringing a whole sentence or just his tender soft and fuzzy skin …Now a whole sea of emotions overwhelms me when I see his cheering face and his constant moving around in front of the web cam.
Enough of that. Already!
Knowing that he is OK we can actually move ahead with other preoccupations such as finding a place to live in here, and all the logistics of moving to a completely new place hardly knowing anyone. Thankfully we found a friend of a friend and he took us in till we find a flat. Such a nice and relaxed guy! Many, many thanks to strangers again! It is so nice to get help like that and hopefully we can pay it all forward one day.
While dealing with institutions we cannot help but explore the city. Because being a real city, it’s everywhere. Should I even dare to compare with Vegas? Little coffee shops, art galleries, parks, cathedrals, book stores, vintage shops, benches where you can just sit and watch the world go by…

I am taking it all in and enjoying every sunny moment we are given…
