I have been working out with Giulia for many years now and am convinced that she is a major reason for my good health and my ability to keep up with six small grandchildren. She is extremely knowledgeable and easily adjusts my routine to accommodate any injuries or discomfort. An overall amazing person!
Do you know that feeling when you are looking for something to make you feel better? I don’t drink or use drugs and I rarely eat sugar; TV generally bores me and I don't play video games. I read, I like to garden, I work out, I cuddle (play?) with my dogs, I sit in my yard and I write, but sometimes none of my “go-to” activities do the trick. I still need that “something”.
This is the day my momma Rose (Rosabel Rhodes Isetti), would have turned 87. She was born August 18, 1934 and she left this Earth on August 26, 2019. I miss her all the time and I am so GRATEFUL to still have my sister, Marina, and our daddy, Ampelio. I have these touchstones of remembrance and connection that keep me grounded when I feel my insides take flight in reach of my mom. I want to call her on my way home from work and hear her voice say, “Hi, my Peach”, just one more time.
at the height of my anorexia, giulia told me about the spark of light inside all of us how it waxed and waned with starvation and how it is who we are more than the muscle she helps build or the fat protecting our bodies we are light.
