P is for Portuguese Citizenship…

I couldn’t possibly let the rest of the Iberian Peninsula go without me addressing it during A to Z – so today “P” is for Portuguese Citizenship.  If you’ve read my “B” post, you’ll know that one day I’d really like to make it to Barcelona, and the […]

J is for Judeo-Spanish (AKA Ladino)

  Language has always been fascinating for me. My heritage is a mixture of Spanish and islander from Puerto Rico, along with Jewish folk from Belarus and Poland (DNA swabs will confirm my mother’s side of this coin in about a week – I can’t wait for the results!)…so […]


I is for Inflammation

About 12 years ago, I started seeing floaters in my eyes.  At times, it looked like black rain against a blue sky. Other times, it looked like a gray Maine Coon was sitting just to the right of my field of vision, and every time I looked up […]
