•sound up• The last time I was in a church this small was in an equally small place in the mountains of Venezuela. There, some truth cracked open inside me and poured out of me in the form of tears that felt like rubber bullets. There amidst strangers, young and old, I found an honest bit of wisdom that only sacred space and stillness can bring. There, I felt stinging and resounding echoes of distant memories in my ears. • That nugget, like some volcanic rock, nestled itself under my heart, agitating me to anxiety, panic, and soul obliteration every time I refused stillness, refused listening. Eventually, it found me and when it found me, and I was ready to listen, it rolled out from my heart and rattled around in my rib cage before I realized it was an egg. Once I saw its truth I nourished it like a mother — like the mothering that every spirit longs for and deserves. I cradled it there amidst my ribs, warming it under the sun when I was able, turning it centimeter by centimeter, longing for and willing it to live. • Desire, there you are! And here, now in this church, 600 miles into the desert of Aztlán it hatches. The serpent emerges. My guardian, my ancestor, the reincarnation of the parts of my soul released from my body in susto coming home to nest. • Be free, I tell it. It makes a song and a flutter — a dance of freedom. • How strange I think that a being without limbs can dance. It hears my thoughts. “Are you sure?” It whispers. I catch my breath, exhale deeply, listo, and say yes mija, it is time. • Then, she makes her way from behind the lungs and through the throat. She comes pouring out of my mouth like Iturbide’s many serpents. As she bursts into the air I can see her many colors, her wings emerge, un picaflor, and for the first time I can see that home means freedom, that freedom lives inside me, that I am home. . . . #yearofeternalspring #nepantla #naguala #elcenote #aztlán lán #terlingua #tejas #motherhoodrising #radicalwomenco #countryqueers #traumarecovery #mentalhealthawareness #venezuela #trujillo #picaflor #home #iturbide #susto
