SLOW DOWN

I’ll start with a disclaimer…most of what I write, I write for myself haha! I’m terrible about slowing down. I always want to get things done quickly…and I also want things done perfectly. It’s contradictory, I know…but it’s my real life haha When I look back on situations I rushed through, I realize that I - Read More -

ABOUT WRITING AND ART

I fell into writing. I never thought that I would be a writer full time! My college degrees are in Engineering and Business, and I figured that I’d find some way to parlay that into a long career in Business, Law, or something else that would allow me to take over the world…you know, the - Read More -

COMPLETION

The journey to complete my third book,┬áSeven Lives, has been both thrilling and exhausting! I set a personal goal for myself, sometime in January, that I wanted to finish the manuscript within a year of starting. Here’s a bit about how that went ;) Outwardly, this goal seemed achievable.

NOW IS THE BEST TIME

Yesterday, my place was being repainted so I decided to go on a road trip around part of my island. It had been a while since I’d done this and I was overdue for this time deep in nature. The views were stunning and I was happy to be away from the paint smell (and - Read More -

RESTART

In the past six months, I have traveled through as many time zones. I started with a lovely trip to Lisbon to visit friends and meet Mooji, and from there, I went on to visit New Jersey, NYC, LA, Austin, and Houston before returning back to Africa. During that whirlwind of a trip, I was - Read More -

FROM THE BLUR

This morning, social media reminded me that on this day, three years ago, I was in China. I still remember looking out of the window from my hotel room in Kunshan to see this disgusting pollution. I definitely did not want to get up or go outside. I don’t know if I have ever admitted - Read More -

ONE DECISION AT A TIME

While it is very easy to get caught up in “what if” scenarios, there is only ever one decision in front of you at a time. And we can only ever make the best decision at the time with the information that we have. In this regard, I think regret is largely shaped because we - Read More -

ON CHANGES AND DESIRE

As I grabbed my computer to write a post yesterday, it was unresponsive. After spending some time charging and working through various troubleshooting steps, I was forced to confront the fact that after 7 years of faithful service, my MacBook Pro might indeed be toast. I accepted that reality and went to sleep last night - Read More -
