Caitlyn Slivinski: The Half Of It

You’re fickle. You’re charged up. You’re plugged in and connected, but like a teasing Sahara breeze that comes and goes, your shine flickers

Soldiering on in Sevilla

Feeling the wintery cold in the city famous for its scorching summers

Happy New Year… now eat your grapes!

The New Year to me means paper hats and noise makers, countdowns on TV and watching "the ball" drop in Times Square
