What we record and what we do not record become part of history

x's fragmented attempt at sanity, media shrinkage, and southern exposure. x is a Chicana/Xicana/Puerto Rican/ Mujerista Mami with diy (edu)punk tendencies, writer and poet-studying history and writing and how to be a better angry loving person, living in deep south texas, rio grande valley, el valle. I sometimes write at hermanaresist.com

The U.S-Mexican border es una herida abierta where the Third World grates against the first and bleeds. And before a scab forms it hemorrhages again, the lifeblood of two worlds merging to form a third country — a border culture. Borders are set up to define the places that are safe and unsafe, to distinguish us from them. A border is a dividing line, a narrow strip along a steep edge. A borderland is a vague and undetermined place created by the emotional residue of an unnatural boundary. It is in a constant state of transition. - Gloria Anzaldua, Borderlands/La Frontera

    (via Finding Gloria nos otros compilation zine by catrinacreations)Finding Gloria: Nos/otras … In the spirit of Gloria Anzaldúa, Finding Gloria: Nos/otras is an independent zine-a compilation zine. In this zine, we channel the writing of Gloria herself, “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…” Inside a tiny gift of a letter poem.
Writings by Elle Gray (Texas-historian), Alexis Pauline Gumbs (Durham, poet, writer, activist, PhD), ire’ne lara silva (Texas, writer, poet), Fabiola Sandoval (California) , Heather Bowlan (writer, activist, California) , Noemi Martinez (Texas, writer-poet) and Kamala Platt (scholar, activist, poet, Texas). Artwork and photos by: Fabiola Sandoval, Celeste De Luna, and Veronica Gomez. Cover art by South Texas Chicana artist Celeste De Luna. Using the term nos/otras is a crucial and critical choices. Nos-we and las-otras. yes we might be implicated in their lives, but this is our lives, para nos/otras.
