Here below, written in turquoise, the beautiful color of New Mexican skies, is the beginning of another post, on another blog, called “On a New Path“. Unbeknownst to me when I had started it, it was also the beginning of a wondrous, although very real journey…

I need a break, my head hurts. I leave my house to take a breath of fresh air. It’s raining, and then sleeting; the mountain is wrapped in mist. I walk outside the village to see what I call the “Me-We-Gate”. It is an iron-wrought structure with an “M” that sits on top of it. It closes the access to a wide alleyway, and the letter’s silhouette always makes me feel like adding another “M” upside down, in mirror, turning it into a “W”. Every time I drive past it, I think about my life, past, present and future, about my relationships, about who I am in the first place… or in the end. I walk up the road that leads to the gate to find out that… there IS NO gate! It disappeared! I am so puzzled. How can it be? When I get closer, it appears out of nowhere. It is the first time in my life that I ever see this gate open, reason why the “M” was hidden among cypress and olive trees… The “Me-We-Gate” is open today, just today, just for me!

This was written back in 2013, when I still lived in Spain, two years before crossing the “Big Water” to go on searching for myself in New Mexico. Traveling and especially learning to adapt to other cultural values and codes when living in a foreign country is also like going through a gate, which takes you to another world as well as another facet of yourself. As I searched for the still missing pieces of my soul, with A LOT of help from several realms, I found that the mirror does exist, not only on that magical gate, but among ourselves. Because as cliché as it may sound, we are all mirrors for each other. Beyond the fancy thought, coming to a real and profound understanding and realization of what this simple expression implies can be excruciating at times, but necessary and beautiful in the end.

Through my thoughts, reflections, wonderments and awes, I hope to invite you to cross this Me/We Gate with me, through the virtual realm of this blog, this WEblog, in search of what coRnects us all…

~ Welcome and Thank You for Accompanying Me ~
