Sententia Vera CoWorking Space

The local coffeehouse has been a gathering place in which locals purchase their beloved cup of coffee and favorite pastry, as well as a meeting place and a brainstorming spot for creative entrepreneurs. In short, the local coffeehouse was the original coworking space.

Sententia Vera CoWorking Community is a coworking space in the Hill Country of Central Texas that aims to provide the entrepreneur, contractor, and telecommuter with a working space in a supporting community. Sententia Vera’s Coworking Community is a shared professional environment supporting entrepreneurs, freelancers/contractors, and work-at-home professionals, in their goal to work in an inclusive, collaborative, and creative environment, while also having the benefit of a quiet and private space.

As a shared coworking community, Sententia Vera offers its members shared resources and ideas, and the exchange of consulting services between members to bring fresh ideas to business branding, marketing, development, public engagement, and certifications.

Happy Thanksgiving

2016 has been a year of harsh challenges and blatant alarms, a year of awakening for most and reawakening of others. 2017 may look even bleaker for some, if not most. Sententia Vera Hub is grateful for its will and spirit, and its energy and perseverance, as it works to create a safe space for its community to transform, recompose, and strengthen its mission to foster healthy communication and engagement between languages and cultures, creating an active dialogue that values and respects the diversity in the other.

People-watching

As a child I was frequently reprimanding by my parents and other adult family members and friends for staring, always made to feel ashamed and, simply, bad.  However, I enjoyed, and continue to enjoy, watching others, their physical characteristics, their expressions and mannerisms, their dress, and their customs. My short memories of living in Ciudad Juárez, México are enchanting. We walked and rode public transit everywhere, which gave me the opportunity to people-watch. Bus rides were my favorite, if able, I could spend the day riding the bus everywhere and nowhere. I especially enjoyed riding toward the back, as I watched people coming and going, losing myself in wonder and forgetting when and where to exit. ¡Bajan!

The Holiday Blog Tour 2013 kicks off today! Chin! As usual, I’m running last minute putting it together, revising, and posting. My usual modus operandi, as I tend to juggle while multi-tasking. This is not to say that I don’t thoroughly enjoy participating in this tour every holiday season since its inception three years ago! Tour founder, Icess Fernandez Rojas, always succeeds in bringing a group of talented Continue Reading

    State of Texas HUB

    C.M. Mayo will be in Austin Thursday, June 11, 2009 for a reading, discussion, and book signing event at Book People at 7 PM. Mayo's new novel is based on a true history that perhaps only a few US readers know. The Last Prince of the Mexican Empire is a novel based on elusive history that even Mexicans might not all-together recall. I, myself, know pieces of this history only because I am often frustrated with the US celebration of Mexico's Cinco de Mayo and attempt to educate myself on its history and significance from a country's self-realization and social position. What is the US celebrating? Does anyone know? Maybe.  Not certain. Vaguely. Oh yes, Mexico's Fourth of July..., right?!?   Well no, not exactly.  In brief, in 1861 Great Britain, France, and Spain joined forces in an attempt to punish Mexico for defaulting on its loans. It did not take long before the French army was the only one remaining in an attempt to conquer Mexico and establish an empire. During a heroic battle in the mountains of Mexico as far as the state of Puebla, Benito Juárez's troops defeated the overpowering, well-fortified, and much bigger French army on the 5th of May, 1862. It did not take long for the French army to return and install Maximilian von Habsburg, Austrian archduke, to the restored Mexican throne. Maximilian's arrival in Veracruz was received with violent aversion from the Mexican liberals refusing to recognize his rule. Despite the undesirable welcome Maximilian recognized the beauty of Mexico and its culture and accepted it as his own. Throughout his imminent downfall, capture, and sentence of death, Maximilian continued to fight for his Mexico, not wanting to give up for a beloved country that had become part of his Being. His last words reported as, "Mexicans! Today I die for a fair cause: the freedom and independence of Mexico. May God allow my spilling blood to put an end forever to the disgraces of my new homeland. ¡Viva México!"   I look forward to reading The Last Prince of the Mexican Empire as it promises to complete this brief French influence in Mexico's cultural and social history. I am interested in C. M. Mayo's viewpoint in this respect and anticipate a fascinating reading and discussion tonight at Book People. Join C. M. Mayo on the discussion and have an enlightening read.
