I remember being laughed at in school for not speaking English and bullied for being “different” as in not “white”. I used to come home crying almost every day, taunted by the boys in elementary school who literally pointed their fingers at me calling me “ugly” to my face. Humbly, I must admit that sometimes […]

Viajando de regreso de la capital de Canadá, pasando por bosques y lagos hermoso, se nos esconde el sol y contemplo que traerá el día de mañana cuando reaparezca. Lograremos los cambios que hemos luchado por más de una década para nuestra comunidad migrante? Como nos seguimos alimentando con esperanza y fuerza ser constante en […]


Back to Chile, 2016, Vignette # 12

29th October 2016 | 0 Comments

In Chile, the persistent theme of conversation for me has been diversity and the need to decolonialize the education system that is disciplining Haitian and African children/youth into becoming “Chilean”. This is in a context where indigenous peoples of these lands have been erased, Chilean cultures homogenized and where an antiquated immigration law persists. I […]

6th October 2013 | 0 Comments

[Draft] When we sleep our souls find one another. We drift to several dimensions. We process the subconscious. We are given messages and teachings. We are healed by the night’s embrace. One morning this week I woke up with the firm knowing that negative thoughts are the equivalent of sending yourself nasty text messages all […]

“My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.” — Rumi +++Every Friday I go to my meditation class in Brampton. I practice Raja Yoga to contemplate my life and myself as a spiritual being and soul. In our superficial and patriarchal society many of us obsess about […]


Joys and wonders of travel

5th January 2013 | 0 Comments

In my latest travels I got sick with the changing climates. I had a bizarre allergic reaction in San Cristobal de Las Casas in the middle of the night that I have never experienced before. I had to buy three different pairs of shoes because the first two injured my feet. I had to buy […]


And then there is another love, another force

As soon as he saw me walking down the hill he ran towards me and stretched out his little arms to hug me firmly. We had not seen each other in two years and Diego still remembers me since he was 3 years old. I felt so loved and was in such awe that tears […]


Love is not enough

I long to recreate the words that you inspired within me on my way from Mexico City to Puebla. Those words are fleeting but the lessons they reflect are forever mine. There was hardly a moment where I was alone in mesoamerica except on the bus rides when I had the last year crashing into […]
