Concentrate On Now

“Some Chicanas are praised as they emulate the sanctified example set by the Virgin Mary. The woman par excellence is mother and wife. She is to love and support her husband and to nurture and teach her children. Thus, may she gain fulfillment as a woman. For a Chicana bent upon fulfillment of her own personhood, this restricted perspective of her role as a woman is not only inadequate but crippling.”

Consuelo Nieto, “The Chicana and the Women’s Rights Movement”

Sometimes the readings in my minor get too real. The struggle between traditional communalism of putting family first and white American values of individualism is something I think about every day.

"It’s good to see you. Not that I ever forgot you George."

"You taught me about concentration… You meant to tell me to be where I was, not some place in the past of the future. I worried too much about tomorrow. I thought the world could be perfect. I was wrong."
