Adrianne, en la ciudad de Holguín hubo un señor muy conocido, empleado de la Zona Fiscal, de apellido Miranda. No conozco su nombre, pero lo apodaban Niño y por lo tanto todo el mundo lo conocía como Niño Miranda. Quizás sea pariente de tu abuelo. José Antonio.

Adrianne, ¿eres holguinera también? José Antonio.

Hello Adrianne/Yolanda, Good to hear from you. I will ask my Mom about the last name Miranda. Holguin was such a small town, I am pretty sure a lot of people knew each other. I do not remember that specific name in Holguin. Best to you. Niurka

Hola Yolie: Bienvenida al website Me alegra mucho saber que tenemos otra Yolanda que tambien escribe. Este website es adictivo, a veces me despierto en medio de la noche y me voy a la computadora y ahi me quedo por largo rato, y por supuesto en la manana no me puedo levantar. Yo he podido contactar a varios hermanos a los cuales no veia desde hacia 45 anos, y la alegria ha sido inmensa. El site es maravilloso y estoy segura que lo vas a disfrutar. Es muy emocinante saber que somos parte de esta operacion unica que movio a 14,000 ninos a tantos lugares diferentes. Carinos

Yolie, my dear Tocaya: As much as I've been writing on this website, I am a writer! It's just that I'm not organized or maybe daring enough to try for publishing. It's another story. I'll send you a link to the Herald article by e-mail. --My daughter would be a contender for the title of Most Adventurous among children of a Pedro Panner. It's a good thing I am not a worrier, or my hair would be green -¿te acuerdas de aquello de que los hijos nos sacan canas verdes? Esa niña me las sacaría si yo no tuviera la cachaza que tengo. I guess you've finished lunch by now. I have a visitor. See you tonight? yo

Dear Yolanda, I love that poem!! Africa from Seattle? There must be a story there! I can see that I too would be getting up early looking for any sign of my daughter! We're a half hour from Portland, OR and not that far from Seattle- beautiful city... There is an article in the Miami Herald that mentions me? How do I find it? I am chancleteando on my lunch hour which I never did even for facebook. Wish I didn't have to work so I could bask in this website all day. I like the "space with many rooms and familiar tenants". Makes me think of the way I pictured heaven... Now I get on my computer hoping to have a message from you..:-) Why in heaven's name aren't you a WRITER? Si, queda mucho que contar, querida tocaya...

Hello, Yolie. September 1st: It's a cool, lovely autumn-like day in Columbia, SC and here I am staring at this monitor and chancleteando again at this "space with many rooms and familiar tenants" -sounds better than "solar" ¿no? -- I see there are new stories just posted and over a thousand people have registered already! And did you see your name in the Miami Herald article? What a debut you’ve had! --You might as well know that this website contributes also to sleep deprivation and impaired eye sight. - My daughter lives in Seattle, so I’m sort of used to staying up late to chat with her. Since mid July until mid Sept. she’s in the middle of Africa, six hours later, therefore I’m getting up early hoping to have e-mail from her, as finding internet connections are erratic over there. --I’m reminded of a poem by Edna St Vincent Millay: «My candle burns at both ends; It will not last the night; But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends— It gives a lovely light.» Hasta luego, Tocaya. Queda mucho que contar. Yo.

Adrianne, Thank you for your message, You are right, the mending of our souls begins with the first stroke of the pen describing our stories. I have had a thorn on my side for forty-seven years. A lot of pent up emotions deeply hidden in the confines of my mind. People describe how awful the Castro regime has been for them, they had a option to fight or flee, we were just thrusted into a journey where we had no choice in the matter. Sent to a strange land with a very different culture and language, not really knowing what would be our outcome. Simply left to faith, placed in the hands of God. We must bring our experiences to light, make the world aware that we do exist and bore the brunt of the circumstances. Mazy the Lord bless you and guide you on this endeavour.

Now you made me laugh! Thanks for the tip. Goodnight. I stayed up too late last night. Tomorrow you may find me chancleteando por el solar pedropanero. I love it! Will look forward to meeting Jose Antonio.

Message by Adrianne Miller | Sep 1st 2009

Yolie, yes, our souls are already mending. It gets better. Look up the profile of Jose Antonio Amaro. I just wrote him a note. He's the one who first told me that you had signed in. I want you two to meet.- Here's a tip, in case you haven't figured it out yet: Click on HOME on the red bar above your name on top of this page. It'll take you to a page where all the messages we are writing to one another are listed as they come in. It also shows the pictures and the new stories, upon which you can click to go directly to that profile. It's a fun and productive way to navigate the site. I call it "chancleteando por el solar pedropanero." Now I really must go to bed. My eyes are blurry. It's nearly 1:00am. Hasta pronto. yo
