Nací Para Ti Guitarra

Erica Rivera

“She looked over her bifocals, an espresso cup stained from that morning’s Pilon on the table with nothing else but a dollar store pen and an old notepad. I sat across from her, I admired the wrinkles on her face each so delicately formed from her 95 years of life. I began to see her as not only my Nana but as a woman who devoted her life, and heart to her guitar, her voice and her family.”

“As they get older the days they sing together grow farther and farther apart. Nana was the only sister never to marry, she was committed to the group and the music. Often a faint guitar can be heard throughout the apartment, as Nana practices her guitar and nurtures her passion.”
