12/16/2022.

The above poetry lines were inspired from the original poem by Emily Dickinson entitled: “Wild nights – wild nights!” I reflected upon line 7 and 8 to make inferences to the Christopher Columbus voyages, and to create the poem an response to Dickinson. As I was excited to learn of the “Generations of American schoolContinue reading “12/16/2022.”

SCRIBE VALUE??

I took the time to reflect upon the ancient Greek, Religious Scribes and Pharisees. While the breadth and depth of these groups is beyond the scope of this blog-post. I reflected upon their efforts as traditional scribes whose writing was a practitioner form to create legal documents or as conveyors of truth, similar to modernContinue reading “SCRIBE VALUE??”

Book Reflections | “CUBA: AN AMERICAN HISTORY” Ada Ferrer.

Winter Reading (s) | As I take the time to reflect upon the first reading of Ada Ferrer’s prologue from the book entitled: “Cuba: An American History” (2021), I was inclined to write upon the impressive reviews to delightfully taste the poetic prose of rich history intertwined with Cuba’s American History.

THE SOLEMNITY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, KING OF THE UNIVERSE!

I reflected upon the Solemn service that celebrates Our Lord Jesus Christ as King of the Universe. Upon this mass-service day Catholic Christians are called into a complete surrender with God. Although God requests our surrender God doesn’t demand this, but to offer the Grace of God. The following inspirational quotes were inspired as IContinue reading “THE SOLEMNITY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, KING OF THE UNIVERSE!”

RESPONSE | SOUL OF THE NATION?!

The truth is the other day as we were taking the time to have a conversation around the table, I reiterated that I don’t think that any form of extremism is a good idea and that in all the spheres of life, a type of balance is necessary. And even if there are individuals andContinue reading “RESPONSE | SOUL OF THE NATION?!”

CURIOUS NATURE.

Entrenched in the World of Islamic Pirates, Catholicism, Spanish explorers and conquistadors, I was reflecting upon the sugar, ginger, jewels, gold, silver mines, that were found in Hispaniola, Cuba and New Spain (Gibson, 2014, p. 70). I wondered has everything been discovered? What if there was still so much to find and discover in theContinue reading “CURIOUS NATURE.”

REFLECTIONS | THE SENATE PASSAGE.

I took the time to reflect upon the passage of the Veterans Exposed to Burn Pits Legislation – The PACT ACT. In my previous blog post I concluded that the victory was for the Veterans, and especially to note Veterans that went above and beyond to advocate for the care of wounds that were inflictedContinue reading “REFLECTIONS | THE SENATE PASSAGE.”

On July 28th 2022, The Honorable Senior Senator for Florida, U.S. House of Representatives, Marco Rubio (R-FL) delivered opening remarks at the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations for the nominations of U.S. Ambassadors for Latin America and the Caribbean. I took the time to reflect upon the remarks that were delivered, and also the questioningContinue reading “REFLECTIONS | WESTERN HEMISPHERIC CONCERNS.”
