Hehe...that was an awesome squirrel story, +Ruchira Khanna . Sending you hugs and giggles. :D
"Sheesh she took it again," lamented Karly as she saw the branch that once had a cherry growing. "I told you...let's pluck it." she reminded in an aggravated tone. "But what's the use of an immature fruit. No one would ha...

A friend (Hi, Melanie!) and I were talking the other day, and we happened upon the subject of stress. We all have it, we all experience it, and today’s modern world seems to ooze with it. I asked her if she ever “shielded” herself. When she asked what…

When life's challenges get you down, there's something you need to realize. And it will keep you going.

Going on a meditation retreat presents many opportunities to learn about yourself: through the practice of silence, meditation, vegetarianism, and through nature. Through long sessions of meditation, the insights I've gained have changed me forever.

I’d started off strong with blogging in April and through a chunk of May, but I “slacked off.” Well, there are several reasons for this. The Work Situation First, is the day job. Last March (2015) when I started this job, I had “two years” to start an…

Tea as Meditation You’re about to get a whole different idea of “tea” than you’ve ever had before. Given my love of tea and the whole ritual of making it – especially when you find a good-tasting tea – I wanted to share in this delightful morning ritual.…

Story
Tagline
Truth seeker in the written and creative genres. A Spanish teacher during the day.
Introduction
You can call me "Cynthia" - I love the way it sounds in Spanish. I have taught and tutored for many years and hope to do so for many more.

I have two other passions: writing and photography. I'm working on building a brand so that not only do people like the word and image candy I provide, but also feel inspired and motivated in their own lives.

Bragging rights
I once nearly fell 20 feet off a cliff in Big Bend National Park.

Can I just rave on and on about Matt Juengel? When I was having trouble with my old insurance company getting the necessary paperwork for my homeowners' insurance, I called Matt on the recommendation of a friend. When it had taken the other insurance company A WEEK just to come up with the paperwork, Matt had everything ready to go IN AN HOUR - sent to the title company, lender and anyone else involved. He is able to shop different insurance companies for the best rates that work in your favor and then you can choose the best option for your situation. The process was seamless and easy. Not only that, he was able to find me a great deal that saved me nearly $400 a year when I bundled my homeowners' insurance with auto insurance. I realize I probably sound like some sales goob from a TV commercial, but when I'm thrilled about my service from someone, I really get psyched about it - because, really, how often do we all get really psyched about great service? The process of transferring was way easier than I thought: it's just a matter of e-signing documents and BAM! you're done. I can't recommend this company enough!
