Hope Against Hope

“Does the acorn dream of the oak? And if it doesn’t, from where is the whisper of spring?” Sophie Ward (From The Love River) By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s a quiet morning, with the exception of the gurgling of the radiator and my screaming neighbors (they are positively unwell or just typical New Yorkers). We goContinue reading “Hope Against Hope”

Friday Glee: February 5, 2016

Hi friends, Today, we explore snowy tragedies, what’s in an age (is it really nothing but a number?), questioning what it means to be really “grown up”, the political scene, breakups, languages, and maybe more– you know, if we get to it. Most of you aren’t from the U.S.; I love looking at my readerContinue reading “Friday Glee: February 5, 2016”

A Philosophy of Walking: Living Deeply

New York: NAD Health Summit-FLUSHING, Queens

By: Gabriela Yareliz Kaidi and I went to one of the NAD Health Summit nights. Korean guy I decided was date worthy because he is a makeup artist. (Just kidding; though it would be convenient, I kid you not) We got so much food at this Chinese place, that we had to take it homeContinue reading “New York: NAD Health Summit-FLUSHING, Queens”

It came upon the midnight clear

By: Gabriela Yareliz This may be a bit cryptic and philosophical, but I will share anyway. (And now worries, it has nothing to do with my fabulous law school.) I think everyone has something that tries to trap them. Something that has been a part of one’s plan or hope maybe one’s entire life; whetherContinue reading “It came upon the midnight clear”
