A State of Mind

It was yesterday, maybe not, when I lay in a dream-like state upon the bow of the Lady Dot. My surrounding beautiful panorama, blankets me with tranquil harmony. Not a mosquito in sight, not a worry to fear. The dime shaped moon illuminates each scattered star in its charcoal backdrop. Like a mobile, divine celestial... Continue Reading →

Thunder and Lightning : My flight to Vegas

One red-eye flight about six years ago..... The view outside the airplane was phenomenal. As the evening descended into night, sky blended with the darkness of the ocean. Pitch black, endless space. However, tiny lanterns floated below and glowed brightly like fallen stars from above. What seemed like twinklers in the sky mirrored onto the... Continue Reading →

How Cuba Changed Me

I always pictured Cuba in my mind as a tropical island stuck in time, with vintage cars beeping around on narrow streets. It turns out that Cuba met my expectations but also went beyond that in areas I never knew possible. To tell you the truth, besides my initial vision, I had no idea what... Continue Reading →

Here in America, anything posted online is available for the world to see. So much so, that this freedom is making it more difficult to decipher what is factual and what isn't.... Continue Reading →

The Cuban Soul: Dance

LETS ADD SOME DANCE MOVES. I absolutely love that salsa dancing is the go to routine when at a party or discoteca in Cuba. Not only does it require more skill and rhythm than the average American booty shaking, but it creates a safer environment to have fun. I could switch partners with any stranger, meet...

Timeless Cuba : Moments in Cuban History

Old Havana City, a moment in time stuck in a perpetual degrading cycle of events. Old cathedral buildings remain standing tall, but covered in peeling paint, growing mold and crumbling concrete. You can tell they were once a pride and joy, something to marvel at in Old Havana. Now they are surrounded with busy streets,... Continue Reading →

Tough Travels – AFP Conference

Well It has been about a month now but I am finally writing about my visit to San Francisco. Let me start by saying, holy cow, California is so very far from Orlando, Florida! Thank goodness for my captivating Star Wars book and the ability to nap on the plane. But I wasn't originally supposed to... Continue Reading →
