Last week somewhere on the internet (Twitter, I think) I learned about an article titled “Haiti Should Merge With the Dominican Republic” published by FoxNews.com and written by Daniel Rodriguez, director of a non-profit organization and professor of International Business at a university in New York.
As a Dominican citizen I quickly reacted to the article, which I believe proposes an erroneous idea. In the article Rodriguez explained that Haiti has only two options “if it is to survive [as a country].” The first being “leaving things as they are,” and the second to “integrate Haiti with the Dominican Republic.” Rodriguez concluded by suggesting, “If we choose to do nothing Haiti will become a nation that will continue to exist in even greater poverty and greater loss.” READ MORE.
We sat at the beach that summer night. My head on your lap, your fingers running through my hair—we were both looking at the constellations—and our hearts connected, as if the world had stopped spinning for a moment and the universe was witnessing this moment. We simply loved.
And even when the intensity of our love burned the energy of our very opposite hearts, we remained two different individuals, two separate species who simply loved against the odds. Read more.
There are many reasons why I decided to write on a blog.
I wanted to exchange ideas and thoughts with the world; learn from others; think about life from different perspectives; express my innermost emotions and feelings, those that only through the words can be accurately interpreted; but most importantly, I wanted to connect with a community of writers, artists, and friends in a setting that is new to our generation—through blogs.
Today I woke up wanting to fly all over the plains, the city, the mountains, the ocean, and the bay—but I am no bird.

Although the Jay Leno experiment, comedy at 10:00pm, was cancelled, resulting in the disappearance of Conan from the peacock network, the experiment has left a marked on television history as predicted by TIME Magazine back in the fall. As Leno moves back to The Tonight Show, he leaves behind a negative mark for NBC and himself, but a very positive one for the rest of the networks.
To write or not to write—that is my daily battle—not because I have a hard time expressing my emotions, thoughts, and feelings through the use of words, sentences, and punctuations, but because I do it too much. Just like the photographer and his/her camera, I always find myself capturing the moment—using the pencil and paper as my tools. I often find myself experiencing a constant desire to write about the sun setting on the west; the lover’s moon; the rain drops in the American South; the child that plays with his mom at the park; the girl who rides the train on Sunday morning—with no specific destiny. I like to capture life special moments, for as the minutes go by, they fade into the past.
