Last week I met my friend Paquita after 3 years or so. We've known each other for about a decade now, and even though there are a couple of decades between us, you can never tell the difference when you talk to her.
I can't remember when we met exactly but it was at my old school. My mother was a pre-school teacher there and Paquita was the "Book's Lady".
Oh, well, I love books, it's only natural that we met in the Library, right?
When we meet, even after years of not talking or meeting, it is as if we just continued yesterday's conversation. It is so natural, we talk about everything, we laugh a lot and dream a lot.
That sunny day last week, after our huge ice creams, we walked to her appartment. Did I mention that she likes Owls? She collects them in any form. I forgot about that until we started walking towards her place. I asked how many she had, she said she lost count when she hit the 400 mark.
I could stare on them for hours, they are all different, made with all sorts of materials and collected from all over. They are gifts from friends and family, and the product of many years of searching for new birds.
The next pic shows my thumb nail, just to give you an idea of the size of some of these guys...
Paquita has all sort of owl items...
This girl holds the door open in the owl room...
And this guy stares at you from the shower door!
It's always nice to meet Paquita, I hope the next time it doesn't take us 3 years to meet again!
