T’s Veggie Burgers

So Friday I got my divorce papers via email download. And I kept checking in to my feelings, to see if I was okay.  Noticed feelings of deep sadness, some relief. And then walking around Vilca, I was overcome with feeling like, what I can only describe as, an Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Like something had invaded and was taking over my body. My friend and I were close to the river, to which I obliged the suggestion to go sit by it. And sit by it, I did. And then sat in it, and then laid down in the cold water, after one gasp at the cold, laying on my back on the sandy, gold-lined silt, with my head on a rock, my body almost submerged, the hot sun still baking the top of my body.  I started crying and sat up and hugged my self. Luckily my friend is used to my tears and came and sat with me until they stopped. Wow. I let the earth and the mud and the river bottom take all my stuff, I hope, and came out with wet hair and feeling better. Then we went and ate food and I felt SO much better. Thank goodness for nature. How does one get rid of angst in the city?

  1. A sad and lovely post … so honest … so vulnerable … and yet so strong. (and the recipe looks great too! 🙂

    Divorciado is a word I remember from Eat Pray Love … exactly the same in Italian … and not too far removed from English or French … same all over the world … and the same feelings are involved …

    Abrazos … you will emerge strong.

  2. hola dorothy, u emotional thing, its a blessing to feel so much. i have been submerging myself in the river for 15 minutes each day, with the idea that its good for my blood and for building courage, just to do it.lots of love, mofwoofoo
