the spirit of the heartThanks to my father, ever since I was a child, I wanted to be a surgeon. My toys were not only the unusual cowboy pistols and hats, but also surgical gloves, clamps, and retractors. My school projects were nothing but projects of the heart. In high school, my reputation was the “wannabe doctor. And in 1967 when Life Magazine published the pictures of the first heart transplant, my destiny was solidified. From that moment on, not only did I want to be one of the best surgeons, but I wanted to be a heart surgeon.”

Dr. Conley was standing there. He was silent and, as I stood by him, I did not say a word. I did not have to. My teacher had fixed thousands of these little hearts before. If it would not happen for Mario, it was not meant to be.”Friday 56 (2)

Telling when bad news was coming her way was one of  her traits that we all believed in as well as her. She could tell when bad news was being directed her way. Physical phenomenon would occur around her announcing the death or illness of someone close to her. Large plants or trees would just fall over. Glass tables would crack without anyone being close to them. Whenever any of these out of ordinary events would happen, she would become nervous and discuss it with us. It was like having a live radio in our midst.”

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?


It's Mon

I have gotten behind in my reading. Last week I got thrown off with an appointment and something else. Never caught up again. I Intend to catch up starting this week. I am still reading RING AROUND THE ROSY by JACKIE FULLERTON. It’s a mystery with a string of related murders. I’m also reading “I Will Never Forget” by ELAINE C. PEREIRA. It’s a true story. The story is told from the daughter’s viewpoint. So far it’s very emotional and hard not to read it. I did finish SUGAR HILL WHERE THE SUN ROSE OVER HARLEM by MULLIGAN.
