I love being a “slash” personality. I am a writer/poet/brand manager you’re a Leadership Coach/Facilitator/Director working with nonprofits. Among many other things! Why is it important to combine our interests and how can someone do it successfully? I love it too! It certainly keeps life interesting (as a rule, I try to avoid saying “busy”) and is a great way to pursue multiple passions at the same time. I’ll…

  • What We’re Loving: VERUM

    Take a look into your closet. Chances are you’ll see a rainbow of cheap tanks, flimsy tees, and trendy-for-about-five-minutes skirts filling in the gaps between your more precious pieces. It’s nearly impossible to avoid buying into the massive industry of fast fashion, especially if you’re on a student’s budget and like to switch up your look from day to day, and with high fashion becoming cheapened by rampant logomania and a decreased attention to the craftsmanship that makes designer desirable in the first place, these so-called investment pieces often aren’t worth the investment anymore.   Fashion is art, but it’s hard to see the artistry when fashion becomes more about…

  • Chicanos Eaten by Icelandic Trolls: A Poem by Valerie Huerta

    Chicanos Eaten by Icelandic Trolls By Valerie Huerta   Kids are lighting fireworks on the two streets that make a Horseshoe where the Dallas county line breaks off into anarachy; a word that looks like two lines of dirt made by the same child’s hand.   Mrs. Peña’s kindergarten class was just released an hour early to jump the junkyard fence and make a phalanx of Oldsmobile and El Dorado bumper/ hubcaps.   My Mexican Grandma, in the mint shrub, is hiding with a Holy-Water Nerf gun, bracing Sancho, the Pekinese with a sinus infection, and the only creature that can smell Eyafjallajökull smouldering high in the South of Iceland,…
