Happy new year and happy new decade! After 7 years of writing at blogspot, I’ve decided it’s time to move on, start anew, turn the page, change to wordpress.  I admit it, for the last few months (year), I’ve been a pretty lousy blogger, but here it is, a new decade, a new blog, period.

This blog will be an attempt to pull together all the different aspects and updates in my life into one place, not categorizing nor sectionalizing, a blog and one life without boundaries  It is a place to be me, all of me, unbridled.  I chose the name Roots and Wings, which are the two things I wish to give to my children,  and also that inevitably, much of this blog will be dedicated to the learnings of being a parent.  And that in search of these two things, roots and wings, I have been led to the places and the people that became a large part of who I am today, and this blog will continue to document my path.

It will also include entries on woes and blessings of being a professional musician, my obsessions about eating, cooking, reading, gardening, cultural comparisons, and making things that inspire me.  It will be a place to unleash my ego without apologies, and to give thanks that are meant to be heard aloud.  In a plain word, it will be a paradise of me, me, and some more me.  This is why I have chosen to pick up blogging again, and to spare my facebook friends of too much ~me~ .  Oh yes, and it is specifically designed with those of you in mind who do NOT have facebook!!

For those of you who are curious about the previous blog, the address is: hermitide.blogspot.com

I would like to include one of my favorite quotes to close this welcome blog:
