Sunflower field in Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 

March 2017. This was my first time traveling in 2 years since returning from Indonesia as a volunteer teacher. Also, it’d been exactly 2 years since my Father’s passing. 

We needed a vacation.It was my grandmother’s 70th birthday. My sister & I paid for my whole families trip to PR. It was the medicine we needed.

Spark

I am a
tumbling
fumbling
mumbling
bumbling
mess.
With a spark inside
brought to life
by a woman whose joy breached pain.
More than a learned skill,
A choice.
A choice she made to sacrifice
her physical comfort for me
in life and death.
She gave joy to me.
Now this spark stays &
I am a
burning
flaming
blazing
glowing
mess.
An unwavering human mess.
Happy to share
my Mother’s Joy.
