The wisdom of Mary Lou Retton

I have been meaning to write about my favorite comedy show at this time: Happily Divorced.  But it is the wisdom of this gymnast what has caught my attention  a minute ago.  I have never been a sport person, but I do remember her and watched some of her performances. I have seen her through the years doing some other things and have always feel her natural, happy, vibe as very likeable.  But, today this interview/video about her thinking around working out and sports related to her daughters has confirmed to me that she is a Wise Woman/Mom.

I greatly appreciate her feedback about how to approach healthy living, which for e is nothing else than living from your very vortex.

Love it, Mary Lou!

Aaron Zimmer


I really enjoy “surprises”… I just checked my youtube channel and stumbled upon an amazing project: a web reality series about being a musician in NYC.   With this production, Aaron Zimmer delivers interesting and very attractive content not only for those like me that are passionate about music, but also for the billions of us that know how delightful it is to follow your true desires in absolute freedom.  I very much believe what he states at the beginning of the trailer:  “The music business doesn’t so much exists any more…”  Listen to his proposal about what it means and how most bands and singers develop and grow these days.  I completely agree with him and know and feel the joy he must be experiencing while taking absolute control of his product.

Best wishes for this reality series and his new brand record!  :)

Girl talk with God by Susie Shellenberger

Girl Talk with God

I have worked in a Catholic all girls school for many years now.  And, with it, many gifts have come along to my life.  I have made peace with many areas of my life as a woman, a daughter, a mom and as a human being.  From all of them the relationship with myself (with God) has been the most satisfying and meaningful as it has allowed me to become closer to what I really am: God!  That being said, the expectations toward this book were many and big.  I enjoyed and appreciate the format.  It is a very easy to read book.  The language is simple and plain, while the intention profound and transcendental for those girls that are looking for a different way of experiencing God.  The book stands as a resource for finding answers through the intimacy of the conversations the teen in them and God.

In much personal note, I would have enjoyed it much more if it was more inclusive about all of the ones that have a very rewarding relationship with God and Christ, but that are not the type of “Christians” she is defining at the beginning of the book.  In my very humble opinion,  Christ is not patrimony of a few but of humanity and anyone that is willing to live fully it’s sacredness as a Creation of our Father.

This book will be of great value for Christian adults and teens that enjoy the fundamentals of their faith.

Enjoy the reading and the beautiful picture on the front of the edition I am reviewing.

The best coffee ever: La llave!

A cup of pure flavor.

I am a very, very passionate lover of real good coffee. Few years ago I attracted the best one: La llave. It has a body and aroma that I never had in any other coffee before. La llave is always with me, it is the very first thing in the morning I do after I have brushed my teeth. It is there with me either before or after I meditate and again with “leche” (milk) some cinnamon and whip cream with my breakfast before I leave to school. Even my sister has fallen in love with it!

Well, enjoy a cup of it, babies! :)
