"How did it get so late so soon?"
- Dr Seuss

I remember exactly where I was when I knew life as I had known it had ended.

I was with my hairstylist getting my hair done three weeks ago. We were discussing possible vacations we were going to go on in the summer. She was talking about Ibiza, Spain and how beautiful it was.  I...

Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul,

And sings the tune without the words,

And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;

And sore must be the storm

That could abash the little bird

That kept so many warm.

I've heard it in the chillest land,

And on the strangest sea;

Yet, never, in extremity,

It asked...

As I read the glaring headlines, see the rising death toll and numbers of people infected, watch the stock market fall, and see whole countries shut off their borders, including ours, I ask myself: How do we navigate a world that has altered almost over night??? One word comes to mind, BREATHE.

Yes breathe. Come back to th...

The recent powerhouse performance of J Lo at the 2020 Miami Super-bowl proudly unfurling the Puerto Rican flag under the U.S. flag, imploring her gente to "Get Loud," with daughter Emme simultaneously singing "Born In the U.S.A., had Puerto Ricans celebrating and debating the century old question: What are we really?

Where were you when you heard about the sudden death of famed, retired basketball star Kobe Bryant? I was driving with my daughter on the way to Disneyland. It was a foggy morning and we were just talking about how weird the sky looked. I was recounting how I had to use navigation the night before to help guide me through t...

"...the idea of being 'lost' in the modern world means not having every moment mapped out; freeing yourself from a sense of obligation even if it is just for a small part of the day, or an inspired moment...each person constructs their own sense of freedom...anyone can become 'lost' whenever they need to."

-The Lost Bea...


“Puerto Rico’s National treasure Punta Ventana destroyed by 6.4 magnitude earthquake. People sleeping on the streets afraid of their homes falling on them. Two thirds of Puerto Rico without power.”

These headlines blaze the internet and I feel powerless. Powerless over Mother Nature, powerless over the human condition, powe...

I dreamed of my mother. She was in Spain walking in the crowd, wandering the city, following the Spanish minstrels as they sang their Christmas song.

2019 was an epic year for me. The very first day, the very first hours, started with the loss of my mother. Her death marked the end of an era and it was the end of m...

“ Collect moments, not things.”

- Author Unknown 

Ever since I was a young girl, I have wanted to travel. Books were my inspiration. I would read, The Book of One Thousand and One Nights, and want to fly on a magic carpet. Man de La Mancha and want to travel to Spain and see the windmills Don Quixote fought. Wuthering He...

"Whenever you are confronted with an opponent, conquer him with love.”
- Mahatma Gandhi

It’s chilly outside, rain is falling and a warm fire crackles. It’s that time of year for families and friends to come together in love and friendship.

Yet, it is a hard time of year for a lot of us. As others are celebrating, some are...
