past/present/future. nothing as beautiful.
and those older tell me maria was always fun. women would have braids in their hair by the end of the day. they tell me she was madly in love; devoted. she was beautiful. like i cannot even describe. she had good legs, even in her 80s.
the greatest compliment was that i resemble my namesake. i can only strive each and every day to be the maria i am to be.
