Plans for 2019~ Ancestral Connections

During 2019, I hope you will join me as I rediscover the magic of New England and read my way through a selection of New England authors and stories set here. I’ve been back in my homeland, but haven’t written much about my excursions, travels, and attempts to reconnect with my ancestors and the land here.


Storytelling is a sacred tradition, and stories set in place often teach and help you engage with that land in a deep way. Some of the books and authors I will explore are:

Shirley Jackson, Stephen King, Theodora Goss, Alice Hoffman, Jhumpa Lahiri, Zadie Smith, John Updike, and Junot Diaz.

Steller's Jay, Seward, Alaska.

In addition, I’ll be cooking my way through my ancestry, exploring the terroirs, histories, and tradition of my ancestors through the foods of their lands, whenever I can. My goal is to make my way through all sixteen regions from my DNA test results. I’m mostly Portuguese and African, with lots of bits of Europe. It will be a fun and educational project, I hope.
