Young girl with cemi

This image was suggested to me by my dear friend, Joanna Aviles-Soto. It is a chalk drawing (6 feet x 5 feet) and will be on display at the Kennedy Center until November. Then it will be "hosed down" to make room for another chalk drawing. Many people asked about the symbolism of the piece and there were "boricuas" who I didn't have to explain anything to.

Tau Sister
What a wonderful time I had at your art opening! To experience your wonderful talent in that atmosphere of poetry and music and in the company of such warm friends was just the perfect way for me to spend my 58th birthday. Bo Matun for your presence and i look forward to more art exhibits such as this one.
