To remember


I write to remember.


Nicole Marie Rose Araneta is a medical student. She is taking time off between years three and four to live in Guatemala, where she is studying Spanish, volunteering with a clinic, and learning from the doctors, midwives, teachers, and people of Xela. Her first love is literature and she tries to write in her spare time. Nicole enjoys the mountains in winter, British spellings, singing, sleeping, and laughing.

Even as I wander
I’m keeping you in sight.
You’re a candle
in the window
on a cold dark winter’s night.


Eddie Izzard on the British Empire:

We stole countries. We stole countries with the cunning use of flags. Just sail around the world and stick a flag in.

British Imperialist- I claim India for Britain.

Indian- You can’ t claim us. We live here. There are five hundred million of us.

British Imperialist- Do you have a flag?

“Talk to her, dad; she’s a doctor.”

“Of what? Her first name could be Doctor.”


If you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm. As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, the other for helping others.


If I had a flower for every time I thought of you,
I could walk forever in my garden.
