De llegar tarde a guardar…

Agua fresca”

    I enjoyed it a great deal, even though I had to leave early. It was a great intra-cultural depiction of the positive deployment of herbs.

    What is the talk going to be about? The topic?

      the talk is going to be about her experience with medicine work... as I have learned watching many conversations by elders, the topic will be fluid no matter what we promote it as, which makes for a much more spontaneous experience... the wisdom of the story of Carmen! :) she may also bring some visionary art to display although we are still working out the logistics of that. hope to see you there!
