Happy New Year and Feliz Ano Novo to my family in Brazil. My New Year’s Resolution- I will swim at least once a week, visit the ocean 2 times a year, and be kind and forgiving to myself and everyone. The photo is of me on the beach at Natal, Brazil- 2004. The city of Natal, Brazil,
is my mother’s birthplace. I still miss her. I am wearing a wrap with the design of the Brazilian flag sewn into the fabric.
