Let’s Grow Old Together

Have you ever looked at someone romantically, and thought ‘I’d grow old with this person’ ? You might even be with such a person now. Well, the details of getting older sure are different than what I had in mind in my teens, and early 20s. I saw it as something…cute. Growing old together looked…

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 Some events are no longer current, but the point is still the same.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…

When We Don’t Hear Our Veggies Scream

Okay, so from the post title you might think I am all for eating meat. The truth is that I have gone through phases in my life in which I have eaten it and in which I haven’t. Of course, after watching a biased ‘Be a vegetarian’ documentary, nobody wants to eat meat…except for fish,…

Eating in India

Some time ago I came across a written source that read about paying attention to my food while I eat. It was a physical health article and it referred to how when I stop other activities and actually focus on the food I am eating, that my brain recognizes this activity, that I am ingesting…

First We Meditate, Then We Go for Tea

India is synonymous with architecture & temples, spiritual journeying, curries & spices, beautiful textiles, and of course chai. There is so much more to India than these few things, but it cannot all be told in a short story. Even with writing a long, well-written report, full of spirit and heart, you might feel some of…

The Seat Next To Her

While looking at photographs for a current project I came across this photo. It made me think. This is one of many women by whom I am surrounded who are intelligent, beautiful, dynamic, fun, and overall wonderful. I have also noticed that most of the women around me are really strong women. They have their own…

Milofy: THE App For Couples. You’re Welcome.

A week or so ago I had the sweet pleasure of speaking with Arshya Lakshman, a beautiful soul, brilliant person, and creator & CEO of Milofy, who also is the first interviewee for my Young & Successful Women Series! We had an extensive conversation in which she answered my questions in detail, and showed her…

Reflections By the Water

This past weekend a dear friend picked me up and we went to the beach to recharge. There is just something about water that feels like a conduit to reconnect to creation, and to the inner self; it feels pretty amazing. As we were there we just hung out, talked to the kids for a…

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. Well, it isn’t that it’s saying “no”, but it’s more like I don’t know what it’s saying. It feels chaotic in there; in my mind….
