Hola Marianela,

Me encanta el nombre "Bee Brook".... entonces eso era un "Bee Brook Dream". Ojala que has encontrado otro lugar igualmente bella para caminar y por vivir. Cuentame de estos libelulas cuando tienes tiempo. Oye... gracias por la energia.

Hola Marianela,

Just checking in to say Hi! and how are you doing?... My research is coming along, painfully slowly but coming along. I am collecting data points. Funny, they seem to come in clusters.

Remembered any Dreams lately? I've been having some fun ones... in fact I saw you in a dream just a few days ago. We came across each other walking on a path in a forest, similar to that place we went for a walk when I visited you. Pero estabamos hablando en Espanol... me estabas contando de una lebelula bella en tu vida.

Hope this day finds you well,
Frank

Hey, I am dominican too. I had seen your picture before on the right side of the home page. But I had assumed your were from boriken.

On your Research Interests, your wrote. Taino spirituality, You know I am starting to become intersted in this topic. As I am not a fan of the cathlic relgion. The more I read how this religoin was pushed on our taino ancestors the more I get upset. With that said, I will not pray to a rock. But I am very intertsed in the relgions, god etc etc belive in.

Anyways nice to see another taino (a) from kiskeya here.

Tau Sister
Bo Matun (Thanks) for adding me as a friend. I see that you had a dialogue with m good friend Leaonard Lies concerning your work in mental health and his work in creating Spanish-language films that promote the mental health peer-to-peer organization NAMI. I want you to know that I have worked with Leonard on these projects on a professional level as his translator and I am truly impressed with the high quality of his work. I have often had fantasies of working with him on some project dealing with some aspect of the Taino resurgence.
I also noticed that you have an interest in our ancestral spirituality.
As a guide in an organization called Caney Indigenous Spiritual Circle I share your interest and i look foward to dialogue with you about our mutual interest.

Hola Marianela~
I noticed in your profile that you are a psychotherapist. This is of interest to me because I have produced many educational films about people with mental illness. I recently produced to hispanic programs for National Nami in the United States. The foundation of the programs deal with helping people to recover using what is called, Peer to Peer recovery techniques. I was wondering what portion of people with mental health disorders do you work with?
Thank you for your time,
Leonard A. Lies IG
