My new essay “The Judge” came from spending time this year with undocumented children at a foster care agency in South Florida. You can find it at the amazing arts and immigration pub CultureStrike.
In These Times ran my op-ed on the history of the phrase “boots on the ground.”
Bellingham Review nominated my essay, “The Candy Dish,” for a Pushcart! A special thanks to the Djerassi Artist’s Resident Program, for the time to work on this piece, read Carl Jung, and think more about Cuban fathers, Afro-Cuban religions, and love.
The essay “Stories She Told Us” was a finalist for the 2012 Fourth Genre Steinberg Essay Prize and nominated for a Pushcart.
