Pueblo de creadores has made me feel more connected to the earth than I ever have been before. I learned about grief and the strength of healing with a collective people dedicated to bettering themselves, the earth, and those lucky enough to cross their paths. I am grateful for teatro trono for allowing us to share in this amazing experience and to learn/try to help achieve Ivan’s amazing mission of eco sustainability. I am grateful that they shared their overwhelming joy of life with us through song dance and theatre. I am grateful to feel integrated into their wonderful family. This second half of our trip was a much needed reminder of the incredible people in this world, the knowledge I have yet to learn, and everything there is to live for. For that I am eternally grateful for the students here with me reminding me to laugh, Luis Alan and Ana reminding me to love, and everyone at compa for reminding me to smile, dance, and live a little deeper.
