I loved waking up this morning to see these faces and to learn more about the fabulous school that is educating hundreds of children at Giwa Farm. Makes me want to go back to Kenya immediately and bring everyone I know and love to meet these inspiring people!


Please take a few minutes to check out this video account of World Teacher Aid’s visit to Kenya in 2011.  World Teacher Aid worked with VICDA to construct a beautiful 8 room elementary school house at the IDP Camp in Rongai which serves more than 600 children.  They have continued their work with VICDA and will soon open a high school in the same area.  The video is posted in 3 parts:

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

This is truly remarkable. That’s ink in water. INK!

Sublime Curious

Master Italian photographer/graphic designer Alberto Seveso shoots high-speed photographs while ink mixes with water. His sinuous ink photographs are vividly mesmerizing and capture the imagination. I hope he prints these on large canvases and will be available for purchase!

Below works are from the a Due Colori series:

Lizzy and I attended a cooking demonstration at the resort to prefect our guacamole skills! I’m excited to try out Antonio’s recipe, maybe for Super Bowl Sunday!

Sautéing In Stilettos

While in Mexico, I went to a poolside cooking class where I learned to make some delicious guacamole.

You will need:

1/2 white onion, chopped

3 tomatoes, diced

1/2 bunch cilantro, finely chopped (large stems removed)

1/2 habanero green pepper, seeds removed and finely chopped (optional)

Lime juice from 1/2 lime

6 ripe avocados, diced (save pits!)

Salt and pepper

Add ingredients to bowl and mix.

Serve with taco chips, enjoy!  Save leftovers in an airtight container WITH pit inside, this will prevent browning.

A big thanks to Antonio for some fabulous guacamole that I ate for breakfast, lunch and dinner in Mexico!!!  (Swim cover, Target)
