I was also born in an Island, but this side of the globe, the Americas, I was born in Cuba, but I came when I was 21 to the USA
I have lived in New Jersey, New York, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Los Angeles, again, then North San Diego County in La Costa, then Oceanside, then Santa Fe New Mexico, from there to Albuquerque, New Mexico, then to Naples in Florida, then Waynesville in North Carolina, from there to Tucson, Arizona, from there back to North San Diego County in Escondido, then to Fort Mohave in Arizona, from there back to North San Diego County, in Solana Beach, then to Oceanside, again, then back to La Costa in Carlsbad, then to another location in Carlsbad, and from there to Carmel Valley, still in this area, then to Encinitas, also in this area, and then I finally bought another house in Encinitas where I have been living now for eleven years, which is the longest I have ever lived anywhere , except in Camaguey, Cuba, where I lived from seven to 21.
I was born thee, but taken at three months old to where my father was born in Trinidad, Las villas, and by the time I was seven, we went back to where my mother and my eldest sister and I , were born. Only my younger sister was born in Trinidad, like my father.
Well, I do not know why I have told you about all of this, but as you can see the impermanency of my life, even in this plane and in this lifetime, it does not even compare, with the impermanency of my Soul and other lifetimes.
Anyhow, my father was theosophist, and we were raised vegetarians and me reading his theosophical books, including the Mahabharata, the Ancient Vedas and the Bhagavad Gita, my first Bible.
While in New York, I was taught Hermetic and Kabbalah, which I have now studied very seriously.
And everything else under the Sun, but I was told not to believe in reincarnation, however, I began remembering lives, and in all my travels in Western Europe and Japan, Mexico and Canada and almost all the states in the USA, I have remembered places where I have lived to the minutest details and I have also remembered places that I have not visited yet.
My consciousness, therefore, has been greatly expanded as a result of all of this.
I think we have much to exchange, and I am glad that we are now friends.
I used to write poetry, since I was a child and paint all over the place, and my first manuscript , which I also illustrated, of my poetries, I did it at age nine.
I see that you are a writer of more serious things.
Anyway, we will talk a lot more, I am sure, and thank you for being my friend.
