Day to Love Your Body • Día para amar tu cuerpo

Celebrating the day to love your body with Corazón Tierra, in her wonderful blog Cuerpo Adentro. Thank you for including Cesárea al amanecer as the image representing a loving attitude towards our bodies.
Felicidades en el Día para Amar tu Cuerpo! Gracias Corazon Tierra por incluir Cesárea al amanecer como la imagen representativa del amor por nuestro cuerpo en tu hermoso blog!
"Nuestro cuerpo es mucho más que la apariencia física, mucho más que una talla o una cantidad de kilos. Es el hogar del alma. Cuando honramos su sabiduría podemos descubrir el secreto de la plenitud."

Poetry Reading and Sneak Peek of my New Miniature Book

This weekend, I'll be reading poetry during a presentation of 

Breaking Ground: Anthology of Puerto Rican Women Writers in New York 1980-2012/ Abriendo caminos: antología de escritoras puertorriqueñas en Nueva York 1980-2012

Together with Myrna Nieves, the editor of the book and a sublime poet, and Ana López-Betancourt, one of the writers included in the anthology

This anthology includes some of the poems I wrote for the artwork of Cuerpo de Batalla. (This is how it goes: I wrote poems, then created art, then wrote new poems for the art...)

Come by if you can make it!

I will be sharing from my new little book-pendant, Sophia's Light, translation of Destellos de Sofía.

Cutest model ever! Poet Papoleto wears my book!

I'm currently working on an edition of 100 book-pendants. 
What do you think?
