6 Years of Aisha

By: Gabriela Yareliz On August 6, 2010, this funny, stylish, Bollywood adaptation of the Jane Austen classic, Emma, was released. Aisha is a hard-to-forget film.

Praying for Italy

By: Gabriela Yareliz The town of Amatrice, Italy was destroyed by an earthquake. Praying for all who are suffering loss. This tragedy brought memories of the 2009 earthquake in Italy. Below, is a song I absolutely love that was recorded by popular Italian artists to raise money for the cause.

Tuesday Badinage: August 23, 2016

By: Gabriela Yareliz In court, I ran into an opposing counsel who had on two different shoes. “I will fess up to you,” he said to me as I walked with a colleague.

Success, Virgin Births And Ordinary Miracles

By: Gabriela Yareliz This past week, I was listening to a “Pocket Pardon My French” podcast, by Garance Doré, about the meaning of success.

Garance spoke about how true success, to her, is knowingContinue reading “Success, Virgin Births And Ordinary Miracles”

Collecting the Pearls

By: Gabriela Yareliz This week, I visited the most beautiful estate with someone very special to me. It was a fantastic day trip. The estate was sprinkled with beautiful, climbable trees; manicured green grass; complete with the picturesque and harmless giant black ants that look like the type that would steal away your picnic sandwich.Continue reading “Collecting the Pearls”

Thursday Badinage: August 18, 2016

“For God is not merely mending, not simply restoring a status quo. Redeemed humanity is to be something more glorious than unfallen humanity would have been, more glorious than any unfallen race now is (if at this moment the night sky conceals any such). The greater the sin, the greater the mercy: the deeper theContinue reading “Thursday Badinage: August 18, 2016”

Sunday Girl: August 14, 2016

“When you live with soul… Every thought is a prayer; Every word is a blessing; Every single day is a miracle.” Cleo By: Gabriela Yareliz It has been one of those Sundays.
