  • Also, we always visit Abuelo in Christmas!
  • okay
  • Gracias hijo!
  • But, what if Abuelo is not here for Christmas? Please son, do it for me.
  • I don´t like the place, it smells strenght-ammonia and I get depressed in this place. My grandfather is also named Arturo.
  • Against the wishes of my father, she sent me to High School in Mayaguez. 
  • What are you doing abuelo? Writing the story of your life?
  • I always wanted to be a teacher and a writer. I knew with all my heart that I wanted to be around books.
  • Si hijo, how did you know?
  • Let me tell you the story of my life.
  • I have time, Abuelo.
  • Yes hijo. You have spoken the truth. La verdad. You have much time.
  • Then she married my father, a coffee bean farmer. She taught us words from the newspaperthat a boy on a horse brought it every week to her. She taught us how to write with chalks that she ordered by mail every year.
  • My mother always read us the Bible, the stories of spanish conquistadors and pirates stories 
  • I loved words from the beginning of my life. In the campo where I was born one of seven sons.
  • My mother brought me a beautiful guayabera. I was a happy young man. In those days, you could teach with a Highschool diploma.
