A Bloggers Interview: Letting It All Hang Out


I was fortunate enough to be asked by my fellow blogger friend to do an interview.

We meet through mutual interest in the blogs we visited.  As it is common in the blogosphere we began seeing each others work and comments everywhere. When she asked me to do an interview I accepted without hesitation.

Why Wouldn’t I Do An Interview?

She has always been so kind and considerate to me.  And, even though we have never met personally, I feel as if I know her.  That’s what the blogging community is all about.

I just added an excerpt and some pictures.  If you want to read the whole interview you will have to visit her site.  The link is down below.


Meet my blogger friend Joe Cosme.

I connected with Joe in this space many months ago and not only has he been supportive, I find his articles inspiring. I never visit his blog and come away empty handed. Today, he has agreed to share more personal details about himself with us.

Thank you, Joe for obliging my nosy inquisition. My regards and best wishes in your endeavors.

  1. Tell us about Joe. Your background, short biography and general outlook towards life.

Me as a baby


I am originally from the Bronx, New York and of Puerto Rican and Scottish descent.  My Puerto Rican heritage dominated my life. Yet, I do not speak fluent Spanish. I know nothing about my Scottish heritage.

I currently live in Florida with my husband of seven years and our two fur babies Maddy and Lotis.


A dysfunctional family life and living in the Bronx helped to make me one of the statistics.  I was a dropout from the school system by the age of 16.

I’m the one on the right

I later returned to school to get my High School Equivalency diploma and went on to college to study Culinary Arts.

Subsequently, I changed my major to Psychology.  I made this decision because I started studying metaphysics and saw a correlation between the two.  In my opinion, Cognitive behavioral therapy is very similar to using affirmative self-talk.

I never completed my studies but continued to explore these subjects independently.  To this day these are two things that interest me very much.

I love understanding how the mind works… what makes people tick… how habitual thought patterns can be changed.


I love taking a recipe and making it my own… cooking for others and seeing their faces when they are enjoying the meal I created.

My other likes besides cooking and psychology include:


These are some of the plants in my garden.

Crystals & Gems
