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.

Faith

Nature is  my Higher Power.  I’ve mentioned before how turned off I am by Christianity but in reality I have an aversion for any form of organized religion whether is Christian or not.  As I get older I think it is more important to believe in oneself and  religion should not be a requisite to send a prayer or a blessing out into the world.  I have faith in Nature and I try very hard to have faith in myself.
