My Great Grandfather Called Me from Heaven!
As many of you know I often talk about my connection to my Ancestors and how I credit them for helping me become more confident and more joyful in my identity.
So, last month when I traveled to Puerto Rico, I visited Toa Alta, the town where one of my great grandfathers was born.
It's a tranquil little town that's centered around Parroquia San Fernando Rey, a church which dates back to 1752. The town has a few nicknames including La Cuna de Los Poetas (The Cradle of Poets),
While I never had a chance to meet this great grandfather, I felt very close to him traveling the streets where he once walked and played. I imagined that he must have found joy growing up in a community that was known for producing great writers like Pablo Morales Cabrera, who wrote a book about the great indigenous culture of the Tainos of Puerto Rico.
Connecting my feet to the ground where my great grandfather walked infused me with the continuous pride I feel in who I am and who I come from.
I'm looking forward to returning to Puerto Rico again in the next few months, where I'll be going to look at some possible future retreat locations.
