Sugar is a glorious thing. It can be. Kind of like Glory “Glorificous” in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Without sugar and caffeine I would not be able to get my day started. On a good day, I may have four coke zeros and a bag of gummy bears. […]
I love to travel, try new foods (both simple and "exotic"), ingest caffeine, and watch political news coverage. Im a big pop culture junkie who isnt afraid to say she loves "In Touch" Magazine! A social marketing expert and psychologist by training who works in the public health field trying to bring a little common sense to it all.
All the world is my television and I like to provide commentary on it.
The year 2012 has been a big year for me. I just turned four while traveling in Curacao and I was treated very well. Plus, I went to Japan earlier this year and I am soon going to full-day Pre-kindergarten. Apparently, this year is also when I was […]
Its labor day Weekend. Woohoo! wait, Im actually not that excited by that. Are there labor day sales, anymore? If there, do I even want to bother shopping in environments of madness? Back in the mid-1990s we used to wait on line for what seemed like hours, to […]
Putting the Labor Back Into Labor Day: Did You Get a Rejuvenating Summer Vacation or Did You Work Yourself to Exhaustion?
Why do holidays no longer feel like holidays? Modern technological innovations have brought us pagers, cellphones, laptop computers, Skype and all manner of electronic leashes to our work. Communication is fast, and the pace of work has ramped up to match it. How many times have you sent […]
Even when pregnant during a hot, humid New York City summer, I would walk from Battery Park to the Flatiron district..so, we’re talking approximately a 45-minute walk. Every morning I would see the same “walkers” (not from The Walking Dead, but perhaps close) and we all unofficially competed […]
I travel a lot. I believe that I have shared that already with you dear world. I love seeing new cultures, interacting with new groups and just sitting at a café and documenting everything I see. I am always doing a community mapping. I try to understand the […]
I have a funny relationship with the Caribbean. My family is from there. I go there for work often. I love love love the stews (goat stew, poll guisado, oxtail stew) and pina coladas are a guilty pleasure of which I’m currently partaking. But I far prefer traveling […]
The movie Up in the Air resonated with me on many levels. I travel a ton for work, I hoard my miles, and I know which security lines I can possibly sweet talk my way through to a more pleasant experience. Still, despite being a pro at this […]
“Without Contraries is no progression. Attraction and Repulsion, Reason and Energy, Love and Hate, are necessary to Human existence” William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell I love that quote-Talk about opposites attract! William Blake was one of my mom’s favorite poets. It was the first book […]
Wow! In Curacao I am a mommy. As a brown mother of a white baby in the United States, I often get mistaken for being the nanny. Such a statement may sound a bit odd to some of you; but that is the state of affairs of racial […]
