April has always been a strange month for me... I thought I had posted this one before, maybe I have, but I discovered it again after going through piles of material for my new book. Written in 2011 this story pulls me right back to April 1994 and everything that I was going through at the time. http://www.jadeannahughes.com/fromtheinside/2017/4/6/kurt

A simple question from my other half about why my Nana would have wanted to leave the UK in 1947 led to a long reflection on how we, as humans, tend to forget our collective history pretty easily when it suits us. http://www.jadeannahughes.com/fromtheinside/2017/4/1/a-lack-of-collective-memory

#ontheblog today a bunch of photos that I took of all the fantastic art installations at the temporary #artstreet exhibition this week. Thousands of feet of amazingly inspiring work, I really wish it were permanent.
(I added a link to all artists featured in the blog post but please feel free to tag yourself or others who participated. Thank you!) #m5arts http://www.jadeannahughes.com/fromtheinside/2017/2/23/artstreet-presented-by-m5arts

"I’m so hyper aware of cherishing every moment, the last first kick, the last time I will meet the halfway mark, but my days are full of toddlers and words and important moments that I rarely have the time to sit down and remember that I am actually pregnant again." Some words on the world, my world, and ramblings in general.

A little longwinded, but here is my piece on debunking some ignorant immigration myths I see flying around at the moment.
Oh yeah... Sorry for stealing the job you never wanted anyway. http://www.jadeannahughes.com/fromtheinside/2017/2/10/oh-those-myths

"Spring always arrived as a surprise, but a well-awaited and old-friend surprise. One day you would be complaining about the bitter wind in March and the next windows would be opened and the fresh, sweet air would bear tidings of sun and longer days and blossoming magnolia trees. Winter coats and scarves and hats took the backseat of the closet again, replaced by dresses and cardigans and my everlasting Fryes, stomping through the city streets season after season, bar after bar. Spring always brought hope and happiness, bright lights and better times, beaches and lazy days exploring new places in the city, photographing walls and people and buildings. I always moved house in the spring, from the Lower East Side to Spanish Harlem to the West Village to Brooklyn." Some musings on a place I will always call home, as well as some links to NYC-inspired short stories. http://www.jadeannahughes.com/fromtheinside/2017/2/3/home-and-the-heart
