Grandma grows tired of the evil around her, in all of its manifestations.

She believes that she will speak about only one right here and now. Abuelita believes that the world is full of people who need to learn much more about each other. It is why I host foreign college students, to make them family to my grandchildren. This need to educate manifested itself last year in... Sign in to see full entry.

100 Names of Death cards

My sister brought me a deck of cards with only 50 names of death on them, but they will have to do for now. She gave them to me this evening. My other sister has more for me, but forgot to give them to me tonight. In Mexico, rather than call death to you, or whatever, you call death by its other... Sign in to see full entry.

in Guadalajara is the best Christmas present so far.

Grandma believes that you must let go of old resentments or they will

Grandma believes that you must let go of old resentments or they will eat at your innards forever and a day. Every time I hear certain names mentioned even casually, resentments return and I am not really like that. Hate that in myself and wish that those names had no more power, these many, many...

I believe in civilized dialogue...where can I find some?

America needs to learn this art once again............people discussed politics all the time in my town when I was a kid and there was little to NO animosity involved. They discussed religious beliefs like a normal conversation, not screaming at each other from radically opposite points of disgust.... Sign in to see full entry.
