for some reason, perhaps related to the news of the world, I’ve been thinking about mortality.

i was lucky – extremely lucky – to learn a few things about storytelling while “on the job.”

i titled them as follows:

  1. Isa (Maria Isabel Reyes)
  2. Ana Maria
  3. Sophie (Sofia)
  4. Lupe

some of these have other titles, but these are their given names.

there are a few more – Cachita, for example – but increasingly the titles that I work on are more generic.

perhaps, for that reason, I wanted it to be recorded somewhere that first, they had these proper names.
