Portions of this post are from an article I wrote for a bilingual newspaper que tenemos here in N. Florida, Conexiones. Didn’t know we had that many Hispanics up here did ya? Take a moment and look at the publication, there are online issues for you to enjoy.

HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!  

Es 2016- can you creerlo?  Seems like just yesterday Santi Clo was getting his cookie fix, and now we’re sharing our wishes and dreams with Los Reyes Magos.  Isn’t it wonderful to be parte of various cultures??  Twice the celebrations-Doble Celebraciones!!


What’s your wish and dream for 2016? It’s the comienzo of a new year, and the future looks bright, if we choose it to be.  When Babushka thinks of the future, she has to think of The Grands. Mis nietos, all our children, are our collective legacy.  Their health, mental and physical, their education and their happiness to pursue whatever their dreams are, is the bright future BB chooses to see.  Hopefully organizations like LATISM, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund,and Hispanic CREO will continue to grow and represent our children, and their right to quality education. Organizations like the National Council of La Raza , LULAC, and Hispanic Heritage Foundation that deal with civil rights and prepares them for leadership, also may they coger fuerza. And those amongst us whose voices have been shushed and hidden for years,Unity Coalition y el National Latino Behavioral Health Association ,may their story be heard with compassion and corazon. Y speaking of corazon, the heart of our beings, the Arts, National Association of Latino Arts and Culture as well as the National Hispanic Foundation of the Arts representandonos alli.  With this,  BB shows examples of intellect, soul, passion, pero falta the body,OUR bodies to join, interact, or even start a group, lo que sea, but accion. AHORA. As we say en Buen Cubano- Pa’ Tra Ni Pa’ Impulso!


What will be your impulso for 2016?  How bright is your dream of the future?  
Babushka’s prediction for this year??
