Del Alma: Write Your Own Story

Submitted by on August 31, 2010 – 10:18 amNo Comment

I heard this lovely story on NPR this morning. And, so I went digging to find out more about the series it comes from. I’m into reading about, and celebrating, the creation of one’s own story.

I hope today, you are writing the story of your own vida, amigos.

“You must have control of the authorship of your own destiny. The pen that writes your life story must be held in your own hand.” — Irene C. Kassorla
