I am safe, happy and healthy, as is my momma. We are together, far from the fires and Covid-free. My curls are out, feet in the dirt, face makeup free, t-shirts threadbare, shorts worn, nails a grimy mess, limbs scattered with random bruises and scrapes, and facial scars exposed in the sun (with layers of sunscreen and diminishing fear).

If you know me, you know that my momma is one of my greatest inspirations. It is largely because of her that I am who I am today... and for that I am beyond grateful! I absolutely loved having her visit in Puerto Rico... to share in the wonder of the work that we're doing here, and to explore this wonderful island that I have come to call home. My momma is in Puerto Rico!!!!! With me!!!!! On an organic farm!!!!! Seeing what we do!!!!! Learning and sharing and loving it all!!!
