Storage

By: Gabriela Yareliz We often think of movement as something we need for our physical well-being, and while that is true, we often miss the deeper mind-body connection that occurs when we move. In 2014, I published a post called A Philosophy of Walking: Living Deeply, where I quoted philosopher and writer Gros stating thatContinue reading “Storage”

la gifle entendue autour du monde

#GifleMacron est tendance en ce moment. Ça a été la gifle entendue autour du monde. Quand j’ai regardé le vidéo de l’homme qui a giflé Macron, j’étais choquée. L’ironie— Macron était en tournée pour voir où il se situe dans l’avis des citoyens avant la prochaine élection présidentielle. Mission accomplie? Twitter est inondé des «Continue reading “la gifle entendue autour du monde”

The Slap Heard Around the World

By: Gabriela Yareliz #GifleMacron is trending. It was the slap heard around the world. My jaw almost hit the floor, last night, when I saw the video of the French President being slapped on his tour to “take the pulse” of the nation before next year’s presidential election. Mission accomplished? Twitter in on fire withContinue reading “The Slap Heard Around the World”

Summer Prep Edit

By: Gabriela Yareliz Summer is near. You can just feel it in the air, despite the 40F Memorial Day weekend we had. The baby hairs that frame my face are doing their (much-dreaded) humidity curl. *Side-eye to the baby hairs* What do we need for summer? (Better said, what do we want for summer?) Hmm…Continue reading “Summer Prep Edit”

Live from the Deli

By: Gabriela Yareliz I am writing from a local bagel shop/deli one block over that is open 24 hrs. Weirdly, I find myself hoping that the 24-hr. promise means the food is excellent. (No correlation). I ordered breakfast for dinner. Breakfast is truly my favorite meal (this is why Jerry Seinfeld and I would bondContinue reading “Live from the Deli”

Words

By: Gabriela Yareliz I visited a magical bookstore today. Every book inside was either old and familiar from past readings, like that one version of the Odyssey I read before freshman year, or unknown and new books to the eye and mind. On the walls were old cartoons, old covers with dedications and little handwrittenContinue reading “Words”

Sunday Girl: May 30, 2021

By: Gabriela Yareliz I am cleaning up the hundreds of drafts I have in archive here. I found some gems. Quotes “If you take the long view, you realize it was a speed bump, not a dead end. What life teaches us over time is that if you wait long enough, lots of things thatContinue reading “Sunday Girl: May 30, 2021”

We Are All Carrie Bradshaw

By: Gabriela Yareliz I am sitting on the couch surrounded by beautiful clothes, and I’m thinking… hear me out… when did we decide that the pandemic was a good excuse to not wear clothes? Are we really that desperate to save on laundry? We in NYC have been living in our yoga pants for yearsContinue reading “We Are All Carrie Bradshaw”

Additional Lessons from Duolingo

By: Gabriela Yareliz I wake up every morning and do four things: pray, drink tea (FYI the Starbucks London Fog tea latte tastes like the devil– stick to Chai or Matcha), workout, and I do my little Russian lessons. I have an unbroken streak and have busted through every league. Now, I am at theContinue reading “Additional Lessons from Duolingo”

Proportions

“I died after living more of my life with you than I lived with just myself.” Jenny Slate, Little Weirds We all live with this tiny little clock that ticks beside us. It ticks with every heartbeat. It measures the life we spend on our own and the life we spend in the company ofContinue reading “Proportions”
