Beauty is in the Eye of the…Beheld?

Okay, Hi. Here me out. Here’s what I’m thinking & I would love to hear your thoughts on it 🙏🏽 Some people’s beauty is just seen for longer moments, and some for shorter moments, but everybody can see at least a passing moment of beauty in everybody, and beauty is in the eye of the…

Ready, Set, Action! Interviewing Seko Shamte

In a post I wrote a while back I mentioned being surrounded by some phenomenal women. One of these women is an old friend I was honestly kinda jealous of, back in sixth grade. She was cool, dynamic, and knew the lyrics to all the songs! (LOL) Our Cameroonese teacher would bring up a song…

Outcasts, Refugees, & Giving Thanks

I just came across this again. It must be time to post it. Some events are no longer current, but the point is still the same. On November 26, 2015, here in the USA there was a celebration. It is called Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is celebrated by many Americans as a day when the ‘Injuns and…

Reflections By the Water

Pretzel In Pretzel Out: Yoga for the Mind

The last thing I felt like doing today was a physical workout. I thought about painting, writing, working on my vision board, meditating…but my mind is saying “no” to everything.

Potty Training The Boy

We all know that all this….. Leads to some pooping! While you (or your wife was) were pregnant with a boy you may have come across at least one person who said: “Yeah…potty training boys is hard!”, or: “be ready to be peed on at every diaper change” or something along those lines. You may…

Reunited in Tanzania

This past June, I packed my husband and two younger kids and shipped us all off to Tanzania. I’m joking. They actually had a choice to come. Well, my husband did (smile).     Tanzania is my birth country and although I have lived elsewhere, I still call it my home. The last time I was there was…

Living the Dream

Maybe our true dream is a part of a collective dream, which if we all work on remembering, then we’d all have our dream come true.
