Too Far Away

LiV lives far away from me physically but never spiritually and is always in my heart. Just like all my family members, who I miss dearly.

I have felt the geographic distance caused as a result of my career between me and my family to live thousands of miles from my grandkids. I feel sad to live across the country from the grandkids and, therefore, see them less frequently.

As COVID has rapidly escalated, that distance between my grandkids and me might as well be another continent. For all practical purposes, I have become a long-distance grandparent.

Before we can love anyone else, we must first learn to love ourselves and try to be the best human being we can possibly be.

It happens to be the most powerful emotion. Love also occurs when you get that feeling from someone else. The butterflies in your stomach, knowing that someone else cares for you almost as much as you do.

One of the most common issues in relationships is the communication barrier. Everyone experiences love differently, and it’s easy to miss the mark when it comes to showing that you care.

Does anyone else miss hugs as we do? Will we be able to return to the age-old practice of shaking hands, hugging, and kissing?

I don't really know about you, but I do miss hugging my kids, friends, but most of all I miss hugging my children's children. See Sabrina and Olivia above!

For the first time in a long while everyone who lives under #USA Democracy may soon begin to enjoy a new post-COVID balanced life.

The last one always seemed to speak to his base, President Biden speaks to our entire nation. After years of living in fear of Russian influence, and behind an imaginary border wall, then following 12 months of isolation and after nearly six months of listening to the big liar, Americans may soon find a way to go out to visit families, friends, and neighbors without having to face a life-or-death decision.

As you can clearly see, when it comes to decorating in general, the smarter fairer sex always tend to have the upper hand in taste.

Inside this balcony is probably a man cave and a male retreat or sanctuary inside a bachelor pad. The term is a metaphor describing an area where men and their friends can do as they please.

Bonnie and Clyde were an unstoppable team. The ragtag bank robber duo were inspiring legends everywhere they went.

Bonnie Elizabeth Parker and Clyde Champion Barrow were lovers who traveled the Central United States with their gang during the Great Depression. They were known for their bank robberies, although they also robbed small stores and rural businesses.

This image of their romantic embrace makes it clear why so many people were attracted to their story. Even if they were hardened criminals, you wanted to root for their passion.

Talk To Strangers

Don't Talk to Strangers, could be the worst advice ever today. Assertiveness develops good social skills, and not having fear of strangers, promotes safety, not to mention meeting beautiful humans.

Don't get me wrong... Our mother's advice was good once.  As a father and grandpa, I want safety more than anything to protect them as best I can. However, avoiding strangers and social interaction ends up sending the wrong message in today's environment.

As a multilingual Latino educator and communicator, I enjoy working with people of all cultures, backgrounds, perspectives, and identities. That is why, behind the scenes, I practice what I preach and believe in leading as diverse and varied a team as the community we reach, ensuring that the digital content we create is more compassionate, and more representative each and every day. I have lectured at public as well as private colleges and universities throughout the USA, including an HBCU.
