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 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.
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 […]
Speaking of not being impressed (ahem, Mckayla the gymnast), can I get an Amen if you like getting feedback? Wow, the room got really quiet there for a second. Undoubtedly, there are people who like giving feedback–managers, supervisors, and the various people who direct others surely love doling […]
This morning, after a long travel day yesterday that was followed by pool time, I definitely had to “do” my hair: Wash, blow dry, flat iron. At the end of this modern-day self-inflicted torture ritual, I was quite happy. The weather in Curacao while hot, is a very […]
Before I visited Curacao, I watched a tourism video that extolled the virtue of all things curacao: its history, its current economic standing and position in the Caribbean, its high literacy rates and its diversity. In Curacao, they speak English, Dutch, Spanish and Papiamentu. A bit of a […]
Travelling is tough for a toddler like me. Foreign countries rarely have my favorite foods, like mac ‘n cheese or pancakes. Sometimes they don’t even have milk. I find this incomprehensible, since warm milk is one of life’s greatest pleasures. When Mom and Dad told me we were […]
All hail the number seven, a number of great historical and cross-cultural significance. The number seven impacts you individually and has enormous consequence in your daily life. Yet nobody except Sesame Street (See #7 Rhumba) has celebrated the number in song, unless you count the White Stripe’s Seven […]
