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

Fragmented Fridays

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 […]

I’m vlogging! When I was in Miami, Carrie, one of the lovely writers of Tiki Tiki asked me to tell a story about my mother on camera. Perhaps, it was the heat or giddy atmosphere, but she didn’t have to twist my arm for very long. Today, she has posted the video and I would […]

I am allergic to sunblock; it sucks! It took me awhile to figure out because it does not happen the very first time I put it on, it takes a few applications before I break out into a rash. Argh!!! This only happens with chemical sunscreens, I can use ones with physical barriers like zinc. […]
