Every Tear You Cry

If you had the chance to read yesterday’s post, then you learned about one evolutionary philosophy about crying. It really pairs well, then, to read about how our tears are linked to the ocean, to our environment, and to the world.

Café La Dueña

I have recently been buying this brand of coffee which surprises me with every delicious cup. I was so impressed with how delicious it was that I researched it. The story behind the coffee is even more surprising. Read about this coffee guys, it’s amazing.

A reality where women could work, could advance. A reality where women could have power.”
