When she was born I felt like it was Christmas and I just unwrapped the best gift ever given to anyone on the planet. I remember laying in my bed the day after we got home from the hospital and watching her breath beside me. All 5 pounds 11 ounces of her. I was too delirious and exhausted to think straight -- but I just couldn't get over the fact that I got to "keep" her. It was almost beyond me that I had been allowed that fortune.  When I was 11 I wanted a horse so bad I thought I would…

Lana Sutra by Erik Ravelo, Cuban artist  [The artist crosses borders by branching out on the diversity of culture, humanity and uniting us as one. “I’m a human being and I don’t believe in borders. I think the world belongs to everyone born on Earth. This is my planet, our planet. No man is an island. Yes, I was born on Cuba but, above all, I was born on Planet Earth. I like to think that Lana Sutra talks about universal love which cancels diversity.” -Erik Ravelo]

Du Sable was born on the Island of Haiti. His Father was a French Sea Captain & his mother an ex-slave. He was educated in France before settling in America with his Native American bride, Catherine. He became a successful pioneer & entrepreneur establishing the first permanent trading post on the Chicago River in 1779. He was officially recognized in 1968 by the State of Illinois for having been the Founder of Chicago. I'd love for Lawrence Hill or Michael Ondaatje to tackle his story!

I was born on a Hawaiian Island, never having seen it as an adult, I yearn to return. Because of my island birth, I thrive & adore being on an island. Hanalei Beach, Kauai. Photo by Debra Hunter
