Pretty Paula in Patanatic



Rebecca’s Room

Farewells have always been difficult for me…it takes a few days for the absence to be felt, the presence to be missed. My inspirational, motivational, musical, laughter-filled, dear friend Rebecca has gone back to Sweden. Perhaps she’ll return to Guatemala in a few months, but perhaps not. I came across this photo today of her old bedroom in Panajachel. Empty. And the loss has set in, but mingles with the overwhelming gratitude of knowing her.
