Making Meaning

i have not posted in along time. I have been blogging at and I can't link to it from here. After all of the difficulties we experienced from getting married, his deportation and having children, Maximo struggled with cancer. He had metastatic Melanoma which ultimately spread to his liver and he died. On January 22, 2016 Maximo died at home with all of his friends and family. It's been very difficult and I felt a range of emotions. However, I am trying to make meaning from all of it. I don't know how it will materialize but it will.

Leo is 2

It has been a long journey to this point!  Leo turned two on August 14, 2010.  The last 2 years have been an adventure, one I never could have imagined.  My brother Michael, his wife Samantha and their children Brooke and Grant came in for a visit. Leo was thrilled.

We went out to Cave Creek (in 110 degrees) to McDonald's ranch.  Leo et al rode in a stagecoach and after each child got to ride a horse (while lead by a "real cowgirl" like Jesse from Toy Story.  

We then ate at this tourist trap restaurant, Pinnacle Peak Patio. The walls of PPP were decorated with business cards and ties from visitors past.



On July 15, 2010 we welcomed Mateo Elias Piccione. He weighed 5lb and 3oz and was 19 inches long.  He is very healthy and vocal.  He immediately took to eating and other infant activities.
