Sunday Driving with a Purpose

So, it began when I had talked myself into attending the 19th Annual Ballon Festival  – which is held in the tiny tucked away town of Winthrop, in northern Washington…only 28 miles south of the Canadian border. Unbeknownst to me, my Saturday seemed to slip away quicker than a stranded hiker experiencing perilous conditions with no…

Celebrating Black History Month – Through the Eyes of Art

Documenting Riveting Documentaries

So, the other night I found myself with a little time on my hands and I decided why not live a little and watch three documentaries back to back…one can’t imagine how much of a task that’s become as I’ve grown older, but I was up to the challenge! And so it began…Netflix and I…

Connecting the Dots that Thread Together Our DNA

‘S’ is for Spa Day!

Okay, so in my book ‘s’ stands for Spa Day!

Evolving Public Opinions Affects on Justice(?)

More often than not I find myself listening to some of the most insightful personal testimonies all the while traversing around town accompanied by my ever expanding podcast playlist; which infuses my day with knowledge, informative stances from ‘others’ perspectives and in turn increases my awareness, allowing me to grow in directions that seems unfathomable…

Consuming Nature’s Footprint

While scrolling through my social media account I came across this rather poignant video. In my opinion it perfectly illustrates how our needless ‘wants’ affect the world arounds us…even if it’s a world that we can’t see clearly from our own backdoor, that vastness that lies out yonder still represent our neighbors. Given the time…

Fleeing Food Deserts in order to Seek Nutritional Justice
