Eat, Pray, Whaah? Part 2

A couple of days later an editor from Penguin Random House contacted me via email to work on the final draft. She was in New York, I was in California. She’d give me some suggestions and I’d write them in until the project was done.

The final copy was published in March of 2016.

Here is an exert from my essay: Making Peace With Myself.

In September of 2000, at the age of twenty – eight, I made what I thought would be the most important commitment of my life. After years of courtship ( I needed to be sure it was true love), I decided I was finally ready to take the leap. I was entering Roman Catholic seminary. I was going to be a priest.

I met a man at the start of my second year. He was handsome and we had many things in common, including love and devotion for our overbearing Hispanic mothers who dreamed of being able to say they had priest for sons. Soon, we discovered something else we shared, and that we were both trying to escape: homosexuality…

Manifesting FUN!

The whole process was a fun little adventure that all started with a prayer: “I want to do something fun!”

The Lord answered in a big way!

Happy Easter!

I love Sunday mornings. There’s a collective energy that swirls around the neighbourhood. Everyone is in agreement to stay home and relax. No noise – just silence.

A big thank you to the last fifteen bloggers who chose to follow my blog over the last couple of weeks. I really appreciate you.

I recently attended a weekday wedding – the theme? Chicano Chic. Part of the entourage was this mid-century classic. I highlighted the color a with a filter but the beauty is still the same.


Chicano Lurve

Recently, I spent the weekend at Pechanga, a hotel and casino in the city of Temecula. The lobby fixtures were gorgeous. In the background, water cascaded down the red wall.

Enjoy your Sunday!
