Of a distant
That sees my pain
That knows my suffering
Come down and tell me
If you love me a lot
Or just a little
Tita knew how contact with fire alters elements. How dough becomes a tortilla and that a breast untouched by love's fire just isn't a breast, but a useless ball of dough. In one instant, Pedro had transformed Tita's breasts from chaste to voluptuous without even touching them.
Your love is one of the truest loves I know.
Do you love him more than you love me?
-When you're not here, I feel that he's the one I love. But when I see you,
everything changes. With you, I feel calm, safe, at peace...
My grandmother, Morning Star, who was a Kickapoo Indian, used to say that we're all born with a box of matches inside. We can't light them by ourselves. Just like in this experiment, we need oxygen and the help of a candle. Except that in our case, the oxygen has to come, for example, from a lover's breath. The candle can be anything. A melody, a word, a caress, a sound. Just anything. Anything that pulls the trigger and sets off one of the matches. Every person has to discover what will pull his trigger to enable him to live.

There are many ways to dry a damp match box. You can rest assured there is a cure. Of course, it's important to light the matches one at a time. ...

At this point, you've got three daughters. When are you going to make a son?
When Tita felt Pedro's burning gaze upon her shoulders, she understood exactly how raw dough must feel when it comes in contact with boiling oil. The heat that invaded her was so real that she feared that, just like dough, bubbles would break out all over her body, on her stomach, her heart, her breasts.
But I think that's not fair. You don't think. And that's that! Never, for generations, has anyone in our family ever questioned this tradition. My daughter won't be the first!
