So Val lost it again. Tears in his mojito.
In the five years I’ve know him, I’ve seen him lose it on many occasions, Val being an emotional Cuban to the core. Today, he lost it because he told us how lucky he was to have all of us participating in a venture that started out as an online journal about Cuba because nobody else — except the redoubtable and always excellent George Utset — was writing about the country of our birth.
Great trees grow from small acorns, Val, and this magnificent creation you called “BabaluBlog,” has transcended its original intent. If only because there are so many of us who desperately want to speak the truth. To proclaim what is right and just, about Cuba and about the rest of the world.
You don’t have to thank us, Val. we have to thank you.
