As a Heart of Haiti ambassador, I received the Songbird Frame, a beautiful hand-cut and hammered recycled steel frame created by Haitian artisans for the Heart of Haiti collection sold at Macy’s. The card that accompanied the frame stated that when the songbirds sing, they create a celestial language that attracts the presence of angels.

My drawing of Erzulie’s veve from my novel Love’s Troubadours is placed in the frame. Erzulie is the Haitian goddess of love and healing. You can purchase it on Amazon.com.
