The Adventures of Teresita

These short childhood stories are memories from a defining stage in my life as I experience a border life. For the most part, they are lived memories with a little bit of creative seasoning. I came to accept and admire the creative eye and mind that was eight-year-old Teresita. She had a way of seeing the harsh world and creating a fun and embellished experience to mimic the characters of her few and cherished books. This, to avoid the challenges of living on the border and having to maneuver through two languages and cultures that were not necessarily friendly or tolerant of each other.
