    Im know im 6 years late, but its only the passae of time and great things come with age. After listening to the Pod cast I felt as if I uncorked a bottle of wine that over the years seems to have grown legs with 6inch stelletos. I have been a fan of Sandra Cisneros, and am greatful to have the opportunity to see you live today. Denise Chavez you are what you eat and your work is “Like a Plate of food with salsa, with the Spanish words the salsa. It gives [the writings] flavor”
