Never Say Never

by Claudya Martinez June 23, 2010

I feel like I am never ready for change. I get set in my ways, I get comfortable. You know the saying…if it ain’t broke then, I’m just gonna keep usin’ it. I’m a creature of habit. Not that I’m proud of that. The world isn’t changed by creatures of habit. Sometimes, even though I’m […]

Safety: Then and Now

by Claudya Martinez June 22, 2010

by Claudya Martinez June 17, 2010

I share bits and pieces of myself with you here and what I get back is so much more. For my odds and ends, you give me a sense of wholeness, a sense of belonging, of being accepted. Every time, I share something that feels a little too personal, you come back with assurances, support, […]

Are you there God? It’s Me, Mami.

by Claudya Martinez June 16, 2010

Do you believe in God? I’m not religious. By that I mean, I do not belong to any sort of organized religion. I was raised Catholic. I do not consider myself a Catholic anymore. I do not attend religious services unless I’m invited to a wedding or Bat Mitzvah. When I speak of a higher […]
