I am a fifth generation California Azorean. My Great Great Great Grandparents immigrated from Pico and Corvo to New Bedford, MA in the early 1800’s. They lived in New Bedford until 1849 when they moved to California. My Great Great Great Grandfather was a whaler. I have been writing poetry for over 30 years to express my innermost feelings on life. For the past three years, I have been writing with the writeonmamas.com to get better at the creative process, rewriting, and critiquing. I enjoy celebrating my ancestry through being a member at the Sausalito, CA Portuguese Hall, sharing family history, attending festas, and of course writing.
