Happy April, my friends!  So comes the end of March.  The end of March and thus the transition of seasons comes with so many holidays and celebrations, though most of them are still best spent distanced this year, so I hope everyone was safe and careful.  It’s a bit belated, but… To all my Christian friends and followers, a belated very happy Easter! To the Jewish community, belated chag sameach!  I hope you all had a wonderful Passover. To the Indian community – a belated happy Holi!  May the colors of happiness, prosperity, and love rain down upon each and […]

  One of the Good Ones was such a good book, y’all. I was a little hesitant as I didn’t love Dear Haiti, Love Alaine (although admittedly I read an ARC and I think it was a really early edition).  I’m so glad I picked this one up because I think that Moulite & Moulite did a wonderful job telling this story.  There was excellent balance between grief and joy.

Latinx […]

A Little Awareness, A Little Appreciation, & A Lotta Book Stuff: January 2021 Wrap Up!

Welcome to the first wrap up of 2021, where we get to look at everything that got rolling as the new year started and we can celebrate how strikingly different everything is now that it’s not 2020 anymore! I kid, of course, because we still have all the same things to work on as we did in 2020, all the same concerns and challenges and opportunities for growth.  But the psychology of hope is nice, right?  For myself, 2021 hasn’t been too bad on a personal level, and for that I’m truly grateful.  Still, there’s the continued opportunity to do […]
