Viviendo Ezer

Crecemos en una cultura que nos grita en los medios, escuela, propaganda “disfruta tu vida todo lo que puedas antes que tengas hijos”.

Mama Runs Miles

Over in Western Washington, we lovingly referred to the weather last week as Snowmageddon 2019. Indeed, after false hope that the extreme meteorological predictions were exaggerated, the snow started falling the weekend before last and proceeded to shut down the city for a good 48 hours, followed by days of terrible road conditions and over […]

Cat Hartliebe

Be aware I would not call myself fluent in German.  The poem wanted to be in German.  I hope that was a worthwhile decision.  I mean this isn’t my first time writing in German.  I love the language.  I love languages period. Ich liebe Sprachen!  Ich liebe Deutsch!

My mom had shared a shrimp fried rice recipe with me that she had found on pinterest and it got my creative wheels […]
