The White Chair    This is an image of a garden in San Pedro Betancourt. The white chair invites the ancestors, and the rice and nine small gourds  water feed them.  My friend Pupy has been living the gardener’s house on this site, the now defunct sugar refinery “Cuba Libre".  His father once worked in the refinery and died at a young age.  Josefina Tarazas’ father owned the refinery, and she and Lidia Cabrera lived there and collected work songs that can be heard on Smithsonian recordings.  They came to the United States during the revolution.
