Community Cafe Awareness December 5 2019 (6-9PM) | Now OPEN DAILY 12-5PM


I am Pingo. I was born. I grew up in the sun.

Then. I died in the dark. A horrible death.

Now. I climb out of the dark. Reclaim the sun.

I am here to bear witness. You can be reborn.


No one knows who I am. I am afraid.

Of dreams in the night. Of noise in the day.

Little by little, I breathe again.

Little by little, I come out to play.


Art is my salve. Paint, my salvation.

I paint colors. Dark colors of fear.

Bright colors of hope. And of love.

Love for myself. Love for the world.

I am a mariposa. Come with me.
