A Dedication

Ometeotl. This is a dedicated space in memory of, in acknowledgement of, in recognition of, and in the full awareness of my sister Alicia Cardenas, tattoo artist, muralist, cultural anthropologist, and blood-magic guru. She transitioned from the body on December 27, 2021 and joined the ancestral realm to which she was always tethered. I hope you are pleased with me sis. I hope I make you proud. You always made me proud. Still do. I see you star shine. I see you crow. I see you moon beam. I see you. Tlazocamati.
