#PeacefulMondays: Regular folk

By Maya Mathias / September 25, 2017

How was your week and, if you live in a temperate climate, your transition into the Fall? Though I was nursing a stomach bug for most of the week, I made time to ingest some of what unfolded at and around the United Nations General Assembly. As I shared with you last week, The UN […]


#PeacefulMondays: The Super Bowl of Diplomacy

By Maya Mathias / September 18, 2017

Are you still thinking about Hurricane Irma, the hurricanes that threaten to follow in her wake, or friends and loved ones who were affected by her wrath? A couple of days ago, I was on the phone with a close friend and learned she has family in Florida. One had a home in the Florida […]


Manifesto for the Star In Your Soul

By Maya Mathias / August 23, 2017

I’m thrilled to launch my “Star In Your Soul” manifesto. Is it just me, or have the last couple of years been filled with one (okay, more like 10) too many globally-renowned icons passing?

We’re 10 days away from choosing America’s 45th President. Are you completely at peace with who to vote for, and why? Another email scandal has rocked the news cycle this week, throwing possibly independent or undecided voters back into what-the-heck-do-I-do-now mode. It’s time to take a step back and make your choice from a different […]
