Come join us for the 2019 Santa Fe Japanese Cultural Festival!
When: 11am-3pm, May 11th, 2019.
Where: Santa Fe Convention Center
Maternal Mitochondria will be at this year’s Japanese Cultural Festival! Catch us on Saturday, May 11th at the Santa Fe Convention Center. We’ll be doing a demonstration/workshop combo on the Japanese art of suminagashi, or ink painting. There will also be lots of performances, vendors, and Japanese food! Maternal Mitochondria will be there from 11am-3pm, but the festival itself runs from 9:30am-5pm. Admission is $5 for adults, and free for children under 12. Visit the website for more information.
This collage piece will be in the upcoming Arts and Design Showcase at Santa Fe Community College! The non-juried student shows are always my favorite. It should be fun!
on your brow I see
the maps and flags of places
you’ve never been– human migration
across tundra and the sea.
You wrinkle your nose and cry like a cat
perhaps last time you made that noise you were under the stars, people in tents with goats, cutting themselves with sharp stones.
Everyone who holds you
is unnerved by your fragility, your newness
but they’re forgetting
you were born in blood
pulled on a rope
washed away by Charon before
setting foot back on this side.
You leapt from unborn to newly born
you walked across a narrow bridge
and all you know is strength
my tiny warrior
my woman for a new age.
