To Do or Not To Do?

To Do or Not To Do?

Emiliano Zapata is a man of silences, someone who talks by keeping quiet. ~Eduardo Galeano Silence has a sound. Silence is stronger than words.

A Petulant Child Needs Disciplining

The only things that the US has given the world are skyscrapers, jazz, cocktails. That is all.

The Nonobvious Obvious

The Nonobvious Obvious

I often make the mistake of thinking that something that is obvious to me is just as obvious to everyone. ~Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Americans, in a general sense, live within the experience of a single crop farm. We are corn sucking the same nutrients out of the ground, all growing straight and tall producing the […]
