After moving to Sao Paulo, Brazil I suddenly realized that what I thought was Latin culture wasn’t as easy to define as I thought!
Stephen Storey did it, & wrote a map to help other people get there.
When I met him I had no idea how deep his story goes and how many things he had to get good at so he could help everyone else to get there!
This roundtable got wild! Who has the responsibility/right to fight for “Thier People”, and what does that even mean?! Continue reading
Listen up! Vonetta went from Alabama to Ireland, and then to Brazil! We dig into everything from Her “Mission”, to not being limited by The Tribe!
Being a Liberal does not mean being nice!

As a writer, I’ve learned to never start a positive comment with negative words. In Global Insights – The Zen of Travel and BEING in the World, Dr. Monteiro broke the rules of being a so-called “travel writer”, so I feel no shame (a laughable concept anyway) in putting forward my thoughts on her book.
What the book isn’t!
- It’s not a happy-go-lucky, generic coming-of-age book written by someone with no life experience.
- It’s not a book that highlights the highs and avoids talking about the painful, gut-wrenching, and often soul-crushing sacrifices made in order to live the dream.
- It’s not a book to be taken lightly, or easy to put down.
- It’s not even the “part memoir; part motivational/inspirational text; part travelogue; part collection of psychological insights into creativity, motivation, and self-actualization”, it’s billed as. Because this book is far more than the sum total of its profound, yet disparate parts.
