The Master of Coca Leaves

In honor and memory of don Miguelito;
guardian, gatekeeper, and chosen one

There are the chosen ones among us; the ones who lightning 
strikes, more than once. The ones who are blinded so that 
they can learn to see in the pitch of darkness. The ones who 
live in hermitude because the filaments radiating from their 
heart are tethered to everything, and it hurts. A body can be 
too small to contain a soul. A mountain can be too small to 
contain a soul. Mastery comes from continually showing up and 
saying, “Yes!” You cannot serve another option. I was blessed to
witness you there, lifting your gaze skyward with extended arms, 
to know you when your life was the offering

for the prayer request 
you never made.
