Much too soon... Gloria Anzaldua passed away on Saturday, at the age of 61. I remember when Borderlands was first published, I read it with an enormous thirst because I needed those ideas so badly; we all needed them so badly. All these years later I can't even articulate what those exact concepts were, because they have become so completely interwoven within my understanding of the world & my place in it. I guess it's time to go back & read it again. I am so sad that this brilliant warrior has fallen.
