We each have unique personalities that shape our life’s journey. I’ve always been vocal, outspoken and action-oriented. I dream big and jump quickly. Sometimes it gracefully works out the way I hoped; most times, however, the journey takes a few loop-the-loops and crazy spins before I reorient and remember life is a roller coaster and […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
I had a session with a spiritual advisor once, and almost immediately she told me my life’s ruling value is FREEDOM. As she said it my mind started flipping through memories of decisions I’d made – many of them of the spontaneous variety – based on my need to feel free. Her statement that day […]Continue Reading... 4 Comments.
I can hardly believe it. It’s the final countdown… Only two weeks until this chapter of my solo adventures abroad close and I begin the next chapter of my life’s journey. I am taking time to reflect on the things I love about my life here in Italy. There’s no reason I can’t bring a […]Continue Reading... Comments Off on The Lists: I Heart Italy vs. I Heart USA
I noticed today it’s been a month since my last update so I forced myself to sit down and write to you. I’ve been doing a lot more living and a lot less writing this month; I know you’ll forgive me for that. So… where to start? How about my trip to Sicily where I […]Continue Reading... 4 Comments.
And a very, merry un-birthday to you! “Twinkle, twinkle little bat, how I wonder what your at…” I woke up from crazy dreams at 10:30a hot as f*ck.

I really do feel like I’m going through a metamorphosis. I feel the buzzing, whirling and churning happening in the core of my body and being. I find myself lost in thought, sitting, crying and breathing it all in. I was never much of a crier; I always choked back tears. It made me feel […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.
I was talking the other night with a few of my Italian friends who happen to be a handful of years younger than me. We were discussing the perception of the best years of a man and woman’s life. The general consensus from the male perspective was that the late teens to early twenties were […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
There’s a difference between being stared at and being judged. I’ve learned to smile through the stares because people, by nature, are curious. Don’t get me wrong. I can feel if someone’s intention isn’t kind when they’re examining me. On the bus, for example, I do get the occasional, “Biatch, you are standing way too […]Continue Reading... 3 Comments.
