The premiere episode of my Intercultural Interracial NEXT LANE LIVING (IINLL) PODCAST--or I call it eye-nell-- is posted at eviamoore.com.
UPDATE: (since I posted this article on 5/13): I've just put up a new sub-site over at evia.moore.com called VETTING 365 which will periodically delve into various other differences aside from cultural ones, and their impact on successfully securing and meshing with a CQLL mate. As you will see, I've posted 2 robust articles there re social class and money differences and their impact on successful relationships. Money and social class differences can also become a prickly issue in relationships between 2 women/2 men who are friends. For ex., in some cases, they may have started off at the same point, but one friend has been able to make or access more money and/or a higher social class and the other friend was unable to do so. The extreme case of this is Oprah and her bestie, Gail King.
In the works is a Private and For Pay podcast on this sticky issue of social class and money differences in relationships.
I'm still sending out invitations to anyone with whom I've chatted over the years re the topics discussed on this site, those who may have purchased items from me, and those who may have emailed me re your views.
However, some of you may have changed your email address, so my invitation may be in your spam box or may land there. If you don't receive an invitation from me, that may be the reason.
In other cases, my invitation may have "bounced" for other reasons.
If you're interested in my content, you won't want to miss any of the updates! So if you think you're not on my list yet, please go to the eviamoore.com site and signup for the email updates newsletter.
For those who received an invitation but have contacted me saying you can't find the podcast, just click on the header in the invitation. Then at the eviamoore.com site, click on "podcast" in the navigation links. If you're using a cell phone or tablet, your navigation links may be at the bottom of the site page on your screen.
I'm currently trying to get the podcast into iTunes, Stitcher, Miro and other podcast directories, but that will take a bit more time and technical fiddling. But after it's in the directories, you can subscribe to it and listen to it on your cellphone or other device. Subscribing is the easiest and most convenient way, so I'll keep you posted on that.
Aside from the podcast, I've got summer vacation on my mind. Actually, it's been on my mind since January. LOL! Come to think of it, this is the first year that we didn't get away during the winter.
For our summer vacation, I think Darren has made plans for us to go out of the country, but nor far. I was talking with my son about this on Sunday. IMO, vacation is not a matter of specifically going anywhere; it can simply be a matter of changing something in your routine that relaxes you or doing something you want to do. Some people may want to use their vacation to organize their house or garage. In my case, I crave a change of scenery of a certain type, but it doesn't need to be far, far away. It just needs to be a place where I can soak up elements of a different culture.
