My name is Ana Patton Mendoza. I was born in the Year of Waste, the early days of 2015. My granddaughter, Liliana, says I have the memory of an elephant. Elephants were extinct long before her birth, of course, but the lifespan of language has always been longer than that of life.
I am a baker. I have green eyes. I haven’t had a bath in over 20 years.
