Me in Natal. These are the colors I like to wear when I’m rocking out to my Brazilian music CD of “Shake,” by Zucchero. It was 2004, in Brazil’s dry season, when I traveled to Natal, Brazil and bought this dress at a flee market, displaying brightly colored cloths, of red, purple, orange,and gold. I was basking in my serenity watching the graceful sun sink itself into the waves of the warm Atlantic waters, and I felt pride to be in my mother’s homeland, Brazil. Its diversity, ongoing progress, enchantment and romance, all too good to be true. Congratulations to Rio for hosting the 2016 Summer Olympics this year! I am so excited.
