Vademecum Vigorous Flowers

A Creative Pool project by Zuania Muñiz-Meléndez (Puerto Rico)

What I once was, ceased to be. The abrupt changes I have experienced caused by Hurricane María and the recent pandemic have destroyed my stability. It is as if life has plowed my land and sown salt in the furrows. But from that same salt that sterilized me and destroyed me, is where a new me arises. One never has seen before. Only possible from the chaos and scarcity that drives me to innovate and grow. This is a brief guide with the new flora discovered in the new world after the pandemic.
