Grandma, My Second Mother

Grandma, my beloved maternal grandmother, died on this day, December 23, in 2009. She was 98 years old. She was my second mother and is my muse and a main character in Dancing in the Santa Ana Winds.

Here, I share a story about Grandma and one of the poems in my book about her:

The two poems I read in this video feature my maternal grandmother. I’m wearing pink and the title on the book is pink, one of her favorite colors, to honor her. Check out the other wonderful videos on Latinopia, too. Mil Gracias, Jesus Trevino of Latinopia for the gift of this video filmed at Barbara and Michael Sedano’s home:
