• Have You Ever Been In Love??

    For many of us, we have all experienced moments of like, infatuation, love and, if we are honest with ourselves, heartbreak…. If at this point you are going to say that you have never experienced heartbreak or pain as a side effect of love…. go to the doctor right now…. you may not have a heart. The thing is, we all grow up reading about [for those of us who loved reading] and watching on tv, characters who had fairytale love. They would meet each other one day, spend time eating ice cream or dancing in the rain, and by the end of the night they would be in love.

  • 24 Hour Creator Privileges and LOVE

    There are reasons why everything and every experience occurs within the dynamics of the universe. Even the creepy spiders that I detest, hold their own purpose and destiny; personally I wish spiders destiny could be achieved in a less creepy way, but I am not the creator. I am in no way knocking the job done by the creator, one has only to look at the beauty within nature to know that he/she did a beautiful job. I wouldn’t want his job either; to balance the universe will listening to the outcries of its inhabitants is beyond comprehension. My personal attempts to balance being a mom of two girls, a…

  • Lets talk about SEX : A letter to my daughters

    Anyone who knows me, knows that I like to observe people, ask questions, and talk to different types of people. I learn a lot and I am also highly entertained by thoughts of others; even when we will never agree. A recent discussion with “younger” coworkers, and then later with some of my friends and acquaintances (spanning a large age gap) have led me to fully open my eyes to how early in life this generation is becoming sexual. It feels to me that our babies are leaving the cribs and crawling directly to the strip clubs. I understand and appreciate, need I add that I too have enjoyed sex…

  • A Moment

    A moment where the moon does not need you to make it’s habitual destined movement around the earth. A moment when the flowers do not need to feel the warmth of your smile instead of opening their petals to the morning rays. A moment where humans do not depend on your lungs to inhale and exhale for their daily breath. Just A Moment Just One Moment A moment of invisibility. A moment of peace. A moment where the sea will continue to gently caress the golden sands, without the need to break down its shores. A moment where silence and whispers fold and turn the lines of pain and stress into…

  • The Baggage Within

    Its closet time again as my baggage is starting to push outwards of my personal closet doors, and affect my day to day life. This just won’t do, as they are straining on the emotional walls that I have used to wrongly keep them hidden away from my view. My bags do not have fancy brand names. They do not make an outfit nor do they have a fashionable look. They are not cute in any way for they were not designed to be cute. They instead keep me chained to the ground immobilized in fear to move forward in my life. This constant fear of the memories that they…

  • Golden Cloaked Knight

    Golden Cloaked Knight, I am sure that I have seen you before. For it is as if I am no stranger to your taste and am no stranger to your touch. Even your smile has a familiar glow to my eyes,  tempting and calling out to me, beckoning for approach. Am I really just meeting you? But this cannot be, for our eyes have touched easily as if they previously danced together as partners of life. I inhale your presence and my body already responds with each breath to your fragrance, as if it woke to your perfurmed scent for centuries. My heart beats faster as it tries to reach…

  • Are you willing to live like a Plant

    My garden has the most beautiful plants. Okay I will keep it real. My landlady has the most beautiful garden, I do not possess a green thumb, never even tried. After returning from a recent eye opening trip (whole story in itself), I noticed two plants. Now I actually thought that they were newly planted (my landlady has this thing about planting and being in her garden all hours of the night, got to love her). But after further examination, I realized that they had been there much longer than we had been living in the apartment. These two tall, green beauties were originally planted in the back of the…

  • The Universe has a sense of humor

    If I’ve never said it before, I am saying it now. The Universe has a sense of humor, and not a simple childlike humor. The Universe has an Eddie Murphy Raw or Queens of Comedy level of humor (oh my, I just aged myself with that reference). So last night while having a semi peaceful ice-cream moment; yes I am starting to replace alcohol and a few other things with ice-cream. It is a process that allows me to indulge no matter the time of day or activity. For example eating ice-cream while helping your child with their school project is way more acceptable than drinking wine. Yet both are…
