Health and Wellness
No mere matter of language
Some say it’s all political trick, something planned, part of some strategy, and they point to his poll numbers to make the point that the coarseness of his language is part of his mass appeal.

Memories of a tropical spring
MONUMENTO—that’s where the story of my hometown begins and ends for me. It was the true north of my own commuter compass, the point from which I sallied forth abroad—to college, to work, to fancied destinations—and to which I referred back on my homecoming.
