I love books. Diaries and journals. There's no question about it, I'm a reader and a writer.

In fact, I think I was set up to become a writer. Probably my mother's fault. Those knee-length dresses she forced me into when all the other kids were wearing mini skirts didn't help my position as the official bully target. Maybe you can relate. The nerdy bookworm, glasses since the sixth grade, fashion-challenged. No wonder I got harassed.

I was born and raised in Wethersfield, Connecticut -- a quiet, peaceful little town in picturesque New England. Life was fairly predictable in Wethersfield. I went to school with my four brothers and sisters, was laughed at, picked on, bullied -- all the usual things that happen to kids who don't fit in. And then

We’re Fine! Puerto Rico’s Teens Rise Up

Apparently, the song that has all the young people dancing and singing in Puerto Rico is “Estamos Bien” (We’re fine) by Bad Bunny.

Around the World ...: Puerto Rico 15 828 Feb 11, 2018 09:13AM  
Mark Twain
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”
Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad / Roughing It

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

Harriet Beecher Stowe
“There are in this world blessed souls, whose sorrows all spring up into joys for others; whose earthly hopes, laid in the grave with many tears, are the seed from which spring healing flowers and balm for the desolate and the distressed.”
Harriet Beecher Stowe, Uncle Tom's Cabin

Harriet Beecher Stowe
“Los libros no se han hecho para servir de adorno: sin embargo, nada hay que embellezca tanto como ellos en el interior del hogar.”
Harriet Beecher Stowe

Dr. Seuss
“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.”
