The Tortilla Kid

Chican@. Activist. Wannabe Writer.

www.TheTortillaKid.com is my outlet for sharing my “coming of age” story, growing up in little ole’ Lake Arthur, New Mexico, to a mother, Maria Rubio, who discovered the face of Jesus on a tortilla two years before my birth.

Although my blog is an attempt to set the record straight about my mom’s story and her experiences dealing with the pressures surrounding the hype and publicity of that October 5, 1977 “discovery,” I also enlighten you with my ups and downs of being...The Tortilla Kid.

In addition to #writing, I like #fashion #food and my dog, #Lennon.

This is not me, but a visual of my current state. Poor posture = jorobada a la fregada. At least I made it to the gym.

3 observations from tonight’s millionth viewing: 1) Rolodex 2) airport arrivals “at the gate” 3) big ass Nintendo game boy. #movies #the90s #sleeplessinseattle
