Introspection and a New Year

This blog started on February 1st 2017, the day I left my country for the first time. I flew across the world and wrote to a small group of family and friends as I viewed and experienced a different world. When I returned, I only wanted to explore this new...

Home

Home. Is where the heart is. Is what you make it. Is where you come from. Is wherever I’m with you. Is not a place, it’s a feeling. I’ve been chasing home ever since I left. I leaped and I’ve finally landed. The curious thing about landing is...

Gratitude in the Eye of the Storm

Because yesterday was Tuesday and I didn’t write anything last week, I thought I would sit down this morning to write an update on my life and musings. The only problem is what to write? Gratitude is the theme of this month and it’s been a stretch for me....

Freedom

Freedom has been on my mind lately. Just before my van broke down in August, I was driving north on I-5 and I had a most brilliant thought about how free I was; I could go and do anything, just me and the open road. The feeling inside was an electrifying vibration...

After the Sun-Rose

This trip to Los Angeles definitely was not what I expected, but as the song says, it was just what I needed. I left the MiniApple early in the morning, it was dark as if the sky was contemplating letting the sun rise. I arrived on the plane to a woman in my seat who...

I am not a Feminist

With so many debates happening in our world, deciding who matters more and comparing who deserves the spotlight, I would like to share my own perspective. I’ve never liked labels much, the hesitation in even muttering the word boyfriend has issued arguments and...

A MarsVistian in the MinneApple

Ask and you shall receive, eh? I have been sleeping, eating, dancing and painting in my grandma’s basement for a little longer than a week. I needed to get out of the house, the neighborhood. I needed to be around a little diversity, something new and fresh. I...

Perspectives

I have spent quite a bit of time thinking about what I want to share with the world, how I want to be seen and who I want to be as an artist. At the most basic level, I just want to share in love with the world. When I think about how I want to do this, it comes down...
