¿Sabías qué?  En varios pueblos de la Sierra Norte de Oaxaca existe la tradición de que, en aquellos días soleados y tranquilos, cuando no se ve ni una nube, si se empieza a escuchar el canto de las chachalacas “chac a lac – cha ca lac”  al otro día habrá lluvia y cambio de clima, lo cual sorprendentemente casi siempre es cierto.

Mi nombre es Nydia Tapia-Gonzales y Chachalaca es el apodo con el cual mi padre me “bautizo” pues me gusta platicar; hablo muy rápido, con acento norteño y puedo ser bastante ruidosa como las Chachalacas.

Anunciar un cambio de clima, alzar la voz y contar sobre la vida en el Valle de Texas;  el esparcimiento, la cultura, educación y tradiciones que se están desarrollando a raíz del reciente incremento de la población, es la meta de este “blog”

Te invito a compartir conmigo experiencias vividas en nuestro querido Valle del Rio Grande en Texas. No necesitas ser un escritor experimentado, solo necesitas desear ser parte del cambio y tener algo que decir y que compartir.

Un ave no canta porque tiene una respuesta, canta porque tiene una canción…

PROVERBIO CHINO

 

¡Cantemos juntos!

La Vida Valle is where I write about "la vida" living in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. Life, art and culture, poetry, prayers, travel, and camping! yes, that's my new thing. I blame the heat and high humidity for the madness. Contributions and comments are always welcome .
