July 4th marks the day I arrived in New York. I was exhausted from my trying trip across the country. It was filled with obstacles that challenged my confidence and decision to stay the course but there was no turning back. Like the great Captain Hernan Cortes, I burned my ships and was on my journey to a new conquest. It was do or die. Retreat was not an option. Starry-eyed and in love with the possibilities of my new life, I watched the Big Apple light up the sky that night. I believed that my life here would be dynamite and indeed a lot in me was destroyed. I’ve been purging and connecting with my “other self”, that’s what happens when one is transformed. And 2-years later, like a diamond refining, I am still on fire. You can taste it in my homemade BBQ sauce, Fire Works. It’s a honey based, chipotle pepper infused, taste bud exciting, libido enhancing sensation! Salute to the red, white & blue… salute to New York!!
Meditation while you blend: a sweet and spicy sensation that drives motivation.
