When I got to NYC Bloggers I went through the listings and decided to check out the 7￼Flushing Local line ( listing are organized according to train stations ) as it seemed to be in the area I thought I might get some feedback. I came across the following blog: Junction Boulevard | 6 NYCB
De Política y Otros Animales Raros: Blog in Spanish about Politics and other weird animals. I figured I would check it out and see what it was all about.
When I first got there I noticed that the blog had been put into hibernation, as she put it on Thursday, November 3, 2005. Two years, and nothing new had been posted! Now my interest was piqued. I began checking the profile and found she had two other blogs. One was: “ The World and Everything in it ” and the other was “ Cuentos de sapos ( Tales of Frogs )”. These too seemed to be in hibernation, the last entry being in Cuentos de sapos in May 18, 2007. However it was here that I started to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Here was an account ( in Spanish ) of a love story gone bad. Here I got an account of why the other blogs had been in hibernation.
It seemed that Lina Maria had taken a trip to Colombia, the country of her birth and upon returning there she found out her lover had found another, sounds familiar doesn’t it?
Again it was obvious that she wrote from the heart and I couldn’t help but to think of that epic love story “ Dr. Zhivago ”, not because of similarities but because of the tragedy and disillusionment of love. Many would probably say she should forget this clown and move on to better things. Yet her feelings seem to be so profound that it is understandable why she finds herself so torn as to promise to write to this torturer.
I felt that I should write about this and let others know. I did not feel like posting anymore stuff about war, economy and human tragedy today. My contribution in that area would be like a grain of sand on an immense beach! I felt I should write about something with human nature and I felt this was it.
I wonder where is Lina Maria now? She has not written anything else since that last entry of May 18, 2007. I wonder what has become of her, of her life! I felt like one that has been reading a novel and has been torn away from it by life’s circumstances never to know the ending!
Where is Lina Maria?
Update: It would seem that there was a happy ending to the story after all.
I have no idea if it was with the same guy in Colombia.
May you live Happily ever after!
