Day before yesterday in my inbox was an email from a life coach who teaches people core values. A thought ran through my head — shouldn’t we have learned them from our parents? And if not, doesn’t every human have the ability to think for themselves and draw up a list of standards that is right for them.
Now for my second topic: In September, for Mexican Independence Day, Saturday Sept. 16, I was asked to read and discuss Dust Unto Shadow at the East Los Angeles Library at 2 pm.
If I’ve sent you this blog post as an email- YOU ARE INVITED and I will be expecting you! You can see the flyer here: http://colapublib.org/calendar/index.php?com=detail&eID=114787
And to end a torching hot August, today, The Latina Book Club ran an interview on me you can read about it here: http://www.latinabookclub.com/
This summer has been filled with outdoor concerts. I once heard that Mozart’s favorite instrument was the sad and desperate viola. I have to say mine is the lovely delicate harp. That’s because not even the conductor is certain of how it works. The harp is a mystery yet where would Tchaikovsky’s Waltz of the Flowers be without it?
I woke up this morning thinking about daydreams and the part they’ve played in my life. As a child I was in a constant reverie with elaborate fantasies within my mind that played out like a movie.
Good News, Dust Unto Shadow is gaining momentum!
When I write something, I’m experiencing and reliving my own losses. In Dust Unto Shadow by the end of writing I felt like I’d survived a terrible death.
