FAVORITE QUOTES: “I am the daughter of a Chicana & an Anglo. I think most days I am an embarrassment to both groups.” Cheríe Moraga

“Why am I compelled to write?… Because the world I create in the writing compensates for what the real world does not give me. By writing I put order in the world, give it a handle so I can grasp it. I write because life does not appease my appetites and anger… To become more intimate with myself and you. To discover myself, to preserve myself, to make myself, to achieve self-autonomy. To dispell the myths that I am a mad prophet or a poor suffering soul. To convince myself that I am worthy and that what I have to say is not a pile of shit… Finally I write because I’m scared of writing, but I’m more scared of not writing.”  Gloria Anzaldúa

“Spirit is matter stretched oh so thin” Ralph Waldo Emerson
