Hurricane Irma

I’ve been through Hugo as a little girl and Georges as a Teenager in the island of Puerto Rico. Irma’s wrath thank goodness was not felt as strong as other Caribbean Islands that weren’t so fortunate. Nonetheless, electricity and water are still out in many places and many trees and light post fell due to the heavy wind gusts.  I expected Puerto Rico to help their fellow neighbor or brother  more and where I am ( hope to leave soon) that is NOT what I saw. I’m sure many did help one another but that wasn’t the case where I’m unfortunately stuck for now. I know this is not a case isolated to Puerto Rico only but given that I have family still here is the Only place I’m concerned with, especially because they are known for their hospitality, or better said Were known In my case. I hope this hurricane goes away and does not do any more damage. Only thing I have to thank this Monster is  for Reminding me Why I left Puerto Rico in the first place and why I won’t come back in years.

Nature Relaxing Sounds

I use to listen to nature sounds cds and youtube videos a lot when I was an undergrad and a graduate student. They worked for me and they helped me concentrate better, not only were they relaxing but I actually performed better in examinations. My favorites are dolphin and whale sounds.  I use it now to help me with  insomnia  bc unfortunately I’m going through another bout of sleepless nights and thus far this has been the only thing that has proven effective even if I’m unable to sleep the entire night.

Dear Fundamentalist and Fanatical Christians

I hope some of you are reading this even if you don’t leave a comment in passing. For the hundredth time please understand that NOT all of us mere mortals need religion, in this particular case Christianity to be good and decent human beings. We don’t need to be saved and also NOT all of us who refuse Christianity and being “saved” by Jesus are atheist. I do not consider myself one, I see the beauty of nature and that is enough for me to believe in it (it being Nature). I have stress this subject in this blog to the point of exhaustion, nonetheless this is my blog and I will write what I want. Suffice to say don’t read anything if it’s not to your liking.
