  1. Amazing Señorita. Being of Cuban descent this piece touches me in a way you may never know. So many miss their homeland which the United States set aside to live in darkness. I hope to visit my parent’s homeland in 2019. Amazing words Holly. Thank you for this write.

    1. Thank you Drew. I didn’t know you are of Cuban descent. There are many Latino’s in my family, mostly Cuban. As I stated earlier Miami is 76% Latino now. May you return from that beautiful island with the loveliest and most joyful memories.

        1. The older generation can’t get past Castro and are vehemently against travel or lifting sanctions but the younger generation here is very well assimilated. Cuba is like the planet Mars for them. They wouldn’t mind visiting but wouldn’t want to live there.

          1. They are doing great…they are becoming our most educated members of society here, and those who don’t go on to higher education are fantastic hard workers. Every group of people have their bad apples, but these kids are fantastic. Right now we have Senator Marco Rubio and Sen. Balart born in Cuba, parents came in the 60’s. I strongly disagree with them because they are Trumper’s (though they consider him a moron like most). but just an example.

      1. Allright! Light me up!
        I’m drawing (on the cigar) Aquileana, at this time, is being sketched as 2 Goddesses. You must be sketched in an Art Gown! How do you feel about “Flora Blanca”? ❤
