I put the water bottle in her room so she wouldn’t ask for it at 3 am like the night before. I thought I had it made. “I’m gonna sleep like a baby tonight!” Nope. Faint words began to interrupt my dream. Moments later, I’m up. She didn’t need more water this time, she needed … Continue reading Good Morning! Wait, What?! It’s 3 am!
I wake up everyday with this sort of amnesia. Thoughts running through my mind. To-do lists draped across my heart. I am bewildered, beset by concerns.

They say bilingual children start speaking later but when they do, they speak with fuller, richer language. Or similarly how quiet toddlers that speak later at times start off speaking with full sentences. I feel like I am multilingual in a sense. I speak academic, I speak 9-5 job life. But I also speak spirituality … Continue reading Multilingual Soul Speak
I love the YouTube videos that show her speaking from her heart on what feels right for the presentation of her show and what does not. She has a vision. It speaks to her. She wants to manifest it.
