    It's a recent thing,

    as a kid, growing up in Barichara, Colombia, I never really had a lot of time to be romantic. My family was one of the poorest in the village, we were gypsies, and we had a lot of work to do. Agriculturally, and at home, making new clothes. Anyway, when I was 16, I was modelling...

    Meeting you was fate,

    becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you was beyond my control.

    My weakness ... I am a true romantic at heart.

    I can't wait to have a love like the ones in the grand love stories. I like to watch romantic movies and listen to love songs, not because I am sappy, but because to me, nothing is as compelling as true love. The problem being ... that true love probably doesn't exist like I...

    When you love a man, he becomes more

    than a body. His physical limbs expand, and his outline recedes, vanishes. He is rich and sweet and right. He is part of the world, the atmosphere, the blue sky and the blue water.

    It was a very warm 4th of July. The gentle winds that always blew in the valley swept over me as I sat under a giant oak tree. With the rivers edge only a eight feet away, I sat staring at the water flowing down stream. I was thinking of how I was going to continue on....Marriage...
