Monday Inspiration: November 23, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz This will be a simple, no-frill post. I don’t have too much to say. I know. Rare. Maybe that is a lie, though. We’ll see how long this post ends up being. This weekend was pretty introspective. Apparently, I appreciate the art of making myself uncomfortable. So, after a weekend of lovelyContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: November 23, 2015”

(The hilarious Fran Fine). By: Gabriela Yareliz The 90s were good to us. For some reason, cassette tapes came to mind. I used to make a lot of tapes, with many songs recorded right off of the radio by boombox or walkman. It was a moment of excitement when your song would come on, andContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: November 16, 2015”

Monday Inspiration: November 2, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz On Sunday, the NYC Marathon sliced my neighborhood in half. I kept wondering how I would make it to the other side. Then, when I needed to cross, the runners were gone and so were the barricades. Isn’t that how we spend most of our time? Worrying about things that will runContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: November 2, 2015”

Monday Inspiration: October 26, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz A happy Monday eve to you. Where are you going this week? I took a walk today. The neighborhood smells like leaves and bonfires. I forgot what sweet therapy walking is for the soul. I think this week it’ll be time to take the camera out for a spin to document theContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: October 26, 2015”

Monday Inspiration: October 19, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz It’s time for another week. It will bring its ups, downs and standstills. Sometimes, time seems to go fast and slow and then disappear altogether. It’s cold here now; winter coats, heater drying contact lenses and ear pain. Ahhh… A taste of winter for the soul. This weekend, I had a lovelyContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: October 19, 2015”

Monday Inspiration: October 12, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz Ready for Monday? I am not sure how I am feeling about Monday. Mondays can be pretty numbing. Anyway, here we are at another week. We are heading straight into knee-deep October. Rumor has it eggnog will soon be arriving, and maybe once Halloween passes we will have our local pharmacy back.Continue reading “Monday Inspiration: October 12, 2015”

Monday Inspiration: October 5, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz Hello, my people! On Friday, I spent a good amount of time fighting with my umbrella in torrential rains. Thank God I wear shorts under my skirts because the wind was looking for its next Marilyn. By the end of the day, I looked like I had walked through hurricane Joaquin– hair-in-mouthContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: October 5, 2015”

Monday Inspiration: September 28, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz Hello my fellow Monday survivors! I hope today was a day of much accomplished. Mondays are so tough, sometimes. We are still jetlagged from the weekend, and it’s full speed ahead. I hope Monday gave you something to smile about. I also hope you conquer the week like a star. This week,Continue reading “Monday Inspiration: September 28, 2015”

Monday Inspiration: September 21, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz As I am writing this, it is still dark outside. I can see the bridge lights twinkling. My hair is wet and curling into an untamable mess. This week, two of my dear friends turned a year older, Liz and Feliz. It’s crazy when you start calculating time, and you realize howContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: September 21, 2015”

Monday Inspiration: September 14, 2015

By: Gabriela Yareliz Hi, hi! It’s Monday! (Partytime music in background). I hope you are ready to conquer your week. The weekend was nice. I met some new people, walked like 70 blocks through Manhattan in fall weather (in heels), cooked, wore a hairnet, started up some Arabic lessons after years of neglect, caught upContinue reading “Monday Inspiration: September 14, 2015”
