Project Dissertation

I moved to this fabulous city three years ago mainly to; be near an airport for travel, be able to not trade my stilletos for trainers, and to finish my doctoral studies in four years. Yes, that pretty much sums up my priorities at 30. So now I am ABD with nine months to go and San Francisco is no easy city to ignore. Although, I would argue that each experience that deters my academic writing is really just needed inspiration. Welcome and I hope you enjoy...

Luna, Arena y Mar

We drove west towards the ocean for the first time this fall. Both noticed how quickly the sun had set, and how long it had been since 'we'. The night unfolded like poetry...

Velvety Dark sky
drums in the distance
moon kissed sand

greeting the ocean water

We landed
armed with a corkscrew
red wine

elements our witness

Bonfires dotted the distant
music spilled
from the boardwalk

voices carried

Songs of
Santo Domingo
de Cuba
y Puerto Rico
made us contemplate


Instead we
a ship
glide by

bathed in moons light

Smell of ocean
feel of sand
rhythms of music

welcomed fall

In this place
I went first
to leave you
fire, sand, water

Oshun has made us one
