To a time when abuela insisted on our 3rd fixing while our parents shared nostalgic historias of pre-revolutionary Cuba when la isla was breathtakingly beautiful and thriving. To listening to Arsenio Rodriguez’s “Tu Reloj Pastora” in the background as abuelo sat on his rocking chair, puffing on his second cigar del día. Whatever your tradiciones are, pass them onto your children and share them with a friend. These are the memorias that we need to keep alive for the future generations. Open up that libro de recetas that your mom passed down to you y ponte a cocinar for your family. Dust off that old vinyl y baila like you did cuando eras un niño in your tio’s sala. Replay the old peliculas. Tell the stories. Recall those chistes de Pepito.
Preserving the past helps shape the future. Keep your family’s legacy alive.
