Life had written, though, that I was to be born to a singer mom who was a gypsy at heart. By the time I was 16, we had moved residence back and forth eleven times and we got to experience life in the Yucatan peninsula, Puerto Rico and North Mexico. We had also traveled extensively and repeatedly to most states in Mexico, all of them with contrasting, different subcultures and traditions, and to places as far as India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Taiwan, Italy and the USA. With so much movement in my early years, it was essential to find refuge in painting and poetry. They both became my anchors and, in many ways, my form of meditation. If I could summarize my childhood, without sugar-coating it, I would say that it was a happy, awe-inspiring one where the main theme was "multiplicity of cultures and religions" and I learned at a very young age about this common thread of love that ties all of us together and makes us One.
