you are so beautiful.

"grown don't mean nothing to a mother. a child is a child. they get bigger, older, but grown? what's that suppose to mean? in my heart it don't mean a thing." - toni morrison, beloved, 1987

truth.

mi madre has told all us grown kids, on several occasions, that no matter how old we get, we'll never be too old for her to spank us. that cracks me up. it humbles me. it comforts me. it just makes me love her that much more, if possible.


happiest of all the happy birthday wishes for you, ma.

you are an inspiration that rises in my sky, every day of my life.


i love you.
