Friday Glee: December 11, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz I met a beautiful, elderly lady on the train today. Some dancers were performing to Justin Bieber’s song, “What do you mean?” We exchanged smiles. She then took my face in her hands before getting off of the train, and she said to me, “Merry Christmas. Be good. And darling, don’t forgetContinue reading “Friday Glee: December 11, 2015”

Friday Glee: October 23, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz This hellish little week had to be over at some point, right? I hope you accomplished everything on your list (I am very much a list person; maybe you have another way you tackle your tasks). It’s time for some self care. If you are a woman, then maybe this means makingContinue reading “Friday Glee: October 23, 2015”

Friday Glee: August 7, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz I don’t know about you guys, but I am so exhausted and so blessed. What a week. The temperatures have dropped a bit. Autumn is reminding us that it is coming soon. I am currently reading through Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. An excellent read for those interested in philosophy, logic andContinue reading “Friday Glee: August 7, 2015”

Friday Glee: November 14, 2014

By: Gabriela Yareliz Baby, it’s cold outside! Full-blown winter out here.  And for some reason, the light rain and four-degree wind chill (I exaggerate…) with the twinkling lights makes us feel that life is like a Christmas jewelry commercial (with background music and all). New York City just has that vibe. It doesn’t always have that vibe. OnlyContinue reading “Friday Glee: November 14, 2014”

Friday Glee: November 7, 2014

Have an amazing Friday! I am feeling very Princess Jasmine today dressed in teal. My survival week after week is truly part of my religious experience. 🙂 It’s time to celebrate the weekend and all of God’s blessings. We made it through. “Because free will, though it makes evil possible, is also the only thingContinue reading “Friday Glee: November 7, 2014”

You must be prepared to work always without applause. Ernest Hemingway I notice that Autumn is more the season of the soul than of nature. Friedrich Nietzsche God is always seeking you. Every sunset. Every clear blue sky. Each ocean wave. The starry hosts of night. He blankets each new day with the invitation, ‘IContinue reading “Friday Glee: October 17, 2014”
