About Adelante

Let's Celebrate and Be Grateful


I just had a Cuban-Mexican Fiesta for my friends and family. It was pure color and joy, with Salsa music and Mariachis. This is a time to celebrate, be grateful for another year on this earth and stop and write down what we want to manifest in 2015.


This last weekend, I was in San Miguel de Allende with my friend, author and Latina icon,Sandra Cisneros, for her 60th birthday. I asked her if it was okay to post her age and she said, "Of course, I am proud of my age - we have to honor and love every year."

We were celebrating her birthday with a costume party, where we each went as a dessert. She went as a cake, and danced through the streets, trailed by Mariachis like a pied piper with her costumed followers, picking up crowds of strangers along the way, singing her Las MaƱanitas. What a way to turn 60 and honor your life! That is what I love about Sandra - her ability to take every opportunity to create a joyous, playful, artistic experience, full of love.


Let's remember, during this holiday season, that our culture is a joyous, playful, artistic experience, surrounded by delicious food and lots of love and family. We have to relish in all the passion, color and drama. That is who we are!

Disfruta! Adelante!

Feliz Navidad!
