Living With An Open Heart
An open heart… this is the theme of this month’s newsletter. We learn about love and how to love from our parents and from our ancestors. It is passed down to us from generation to generation. Sometimes it is taken away from us too, and we have to figure out how to love on our own. And primarily, we have to learn how to love ourselves. I am reminded of the beautiful story written by Línda González, “The Cost of Our Lives.” It is her recount of the life changing and heart opening experience starting when she was sixteen, when her father’s son from México appears at the front door of her Southern California home. Before that moment, neither Linda nor her siblings knew their father had another child. It is a beautiful, poignant story of families uniting across physical and emotional borders.
