Ayiti Cherie

I was born in Haiti. Left when I was 5. Returned again at about 13 and again at around 25. It's been 10 years. For the past 2 years I have been having a recurring dream about the house and block I grew up in. It's time. I am at a life changing place with my growth and I feel this trip is pertinent and important to my movement. I am a published poet working with a writer/ producer on a 30 minute film for a poem I wrote about my people and my culture. The poem is entitled "Se bet ou ye". Videos of it can be found on my you tube page. www.youtube.com/mariemichaelle
I am in search of perspective and truth. I want to experience the mystic and reconnect with my roots. During my two week stay in Haiti I will record my daily happenings via picture and text. I will be writing a memoir of some sort based on my trip back home that will be published early 2014. I figured if I sat around and waited to make enough money to travel back home then I wouldn't be going anytime soon. The time is now so I find alternate ways to making it happen. Any help is appreciated. Positive well wishes welcome as well.
