Screenless

By: Gabriela Yareliz First, I just want to say that I believe everyone should get a spring break. Now that we have that out of the way, I come to my thought on windows. The other day, I sat down to watch a chunk of a movie just before bed. I hadn’t showered yet, andContinue reading “Screenless”

How to Have a Charmed Spring

By: Gabriela Yareliz I loved Gigi Chomiak‘s 100 Ways to Romance Life email newsletter (sent February 11).

“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).

Spring

By: Gabriela Yareliz Somehow, I ended up in that train car. It’s one I seldom end up on. It’s the one that starts in the Upper East Side and goes to Brooklyn filled with young, hip, beautiful people.

By: Gabriela Yareliz summer We will be the ones to run around in warm summer rain, until we are soaked and our chests are heaving from so much laughter.

Sunday Girl: March 20, 2016

By: Gabriela Yareliz Semana Santa (Holy Week) begins. Easter weekend is coming. Easter and Passover always reminds me that God can do and does the impossible.

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”
