Luz Maria Gama. My Poet name is Luz Maria Gama and in November I will be 69 years old. This year I will celebrate my 50th High School Reunion from Hirahm W. Johnson. I was born in the small town of Teocuitatlan, Jalisco but have lived in Sacramento since 1955..many years before it became Midtown.It was in the mid 1980’s that Poetry came knocking at my door. I opened the door and let Her in..She has been writing me ever since!A retired Head Start Teacher after 38 years, a mother to two lovely daughters, a grandmother to 7, a sister to one brother, I live with my mother of 92 in Midtown.I have been attending the Monday morning women’s writing group at Women’s Wisdom Art.it is an amazing and very supportive group! I wish to write more and travel some soon! I also dream of having my own home with a big back yard for Mr. Meow Meow, my grandkids and Linda, my Precious Inner Child to roam..Peace!
