She moves her hands like the natural oscillations of waves. She tells her granddaughter to follow her heart the way her granddaughter continues to follow the tides with her eyes. She desires to become a stingray during  reincarnation, smoothly, naturally, whole-heartedly in spirit. She is the grandma in “Moana.”

p.s. On Thursday night I watched Moana with Joseph. We both noticed how the grandma in the movie was so free-spirited. Her character made me think of my own grandmothers. So, here’s to grandmothers, wise, beautiful, free-spirited women!
