DANIEL BLUE: MEET MELANIE CANTARA >>>

Tacomafilesmelaniecantar Tacomafilesart Melanie Cantara moved here in 2004 to help take care of her mother who has since continued her journey in other forms than our tangible cage.   

Melanie and I have much in common. I moved back home in 2001 for the same reason. Melanie is a special girl. There is something wonderful about her countenance. I find her to be overwhelmingly easy to behold.  Our culture has managed to tangle sexuality into nearly every activity you can imagine, yet somehow Mell can kiss your cheek and bring to mind a familial warmth that exists in very few places on this planet outside of my childhood memories of being loved by my Aunties. 

Soft and often smiling, Melanie is an example of feminine prowess that was lost to women for decades after the roaring twenties came to a close. Never coy, her matter-of-fact nature of conversation causes one to feel important and heard. 

Last Halloween, she and her friend led me around the dance floor in a series of charades that I have not appreciated the likes of since I was a teenager in the spiritually charged steppes of New Mexico. 

I am very glad she has decided to stay around in the wake of all that has come to pass.
