Tea Party in Caribbea

Setting the water’s
surface with silver cups
and great green leaves
to celebrate existence
whenever possible.

Heather is 33, from St. Cloud, Minnesota. I want to tell you that Heather is gentle, kind, insightful, and warm. That she is alpha-opinionated, that she will fight for peace, that she is part of the revolution of love without borders, a sort of internal movement felt between kindred spirits. She is as soulful a teacher and percussionist as a dolphin leaping through the breeze on a warm day at sea. Heather is a straight-up Virgo--helpful, sensitive, with equal parts adventure and organization in her blood. Those are just the things a person could tell after a week or two of knowing her. I've known her for thirteen years. She is one of my best friends, one of those friends you want to build a pod of tiny houses with and live out your days as neighbors. We met as mini-versions of our current selves, slapping bags of Franzia at basement parties filled with smoke at the University of Minnesota. Since then, we have started drinking wine out of glass bottles instead (at least most of the time). I love her like a sister, and am so happy we could finally make her physiopoem a reality. This photo was taken at Cenote Cristalino in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Heather has been living in Playa del Carmen since 2013.
