I am a 30 year old, bi-national girl trying to create conscience and conversations around returned immigrants, and their ability to self identify. I believe in a kinder world where social justice will be a reality, and in planting trees whose shade I will not enjoy. I live with my cat Chloe in Merida, Mexico.
The best explanation I’ve heard of myself, thus far:
M: So, Azul was born [in Mexico]?
M: But she was raised in the US?
M: So, what what is she exactly?
This quote is important in the way I approach life:
“I beg you to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Do not search for the answers, which could not be given you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”
-Rainer Maria Rilke
