My Romantic Grandmothers

I know we are well past Valentine's Day weekend, but I have carried my grandmother Rosa's love story in my back pocket since I began collecting stories to tell.

Whatever is True, Whatever is Noble, Whatever is Right

So, I've been trying to get back to writing and posting regularly —kind of an unofficial New Year's resolution. When my family headed back home, I started to reorganize the house as well as my approach to writing.  It was right then that January 6th happened.  All these months, while I've been home, I tried … Continue reading Whatever is True, Whatever is Noble, Whatever is Right

Puerto Rico In my Heart

I wrote this story sometime last year in response to a prompt about a map and the best trip we ever had. On occasion, I pull it out and tweak it a little. With protests occurring all over the world in support of the people of Puerto Rico, I decided to share it again. “I … Continue reading Puerto Rico In my Heart

I love the Summer Rain

I'm late in posting for Father's Day.   This is always one of my go-to happy memories. This is the original essay which was my tribute for Father’s Day a few years ago.  I condensed it for an assignment last week.  Please enjoy this version too. “I love the summer rain!” I shouted in my head … Continue reading I love the Summer Rain
