I knew it was the only really good thing in the story because I had plagiarized it from her. She stared at me like some irritated hawk.
Then she exploded in laughter. That famous laughter. She made the second move. She waited till everyone had left. I rushed away as if Queen Elizabeth had just spared me. Just you. And me. I was scared but thrilled to be following Pei up there. I wish I had kept notes. I sat on her floor, looking up at her.
These three details blew my mind aside from the fact that I was sitting on her floor looking up at her. Two: she drank. Some amber liquor—I was not knowledgeable about booze. But it was some sort of yummy- looking whiskey. In a square glass! How utterly sophisticated, I thought. No, not a hash pipe. A grandpa style pipe packed with aromatic pipe tobacco. I had never seen anything like it. In that one moment, I had seen her with the entire curtain pulled aside.
She had decided to let me make believe I was her intimate equal. But I do know she gently prodded me into telling her the full story of my dad and my upbringing. And then she asked me who I was reading. I was a Harlan Ellison fanatic at that moment. Like an auntie with a bad nephew. I rattled off all these names. Pei was quite satisfied because he was already forcing me to read Doris Lessing. Then Ursula told me about her own journey.

Developing Empathy Through Reading: Luisito’s Island Book Review
She told us this amazing story about how she collected every rejection slip, and created a stack beside her desk. And the stack reached the writing surface of her desk before she sold her first piece. I remembered this when my first book was rejected for ten straight years before anyone would publish it. Thank you, Ursula. And I never forgot it. Our job is to go out and feel things for people, then to come back and tell them how it feels to be alive. Because they are numb. Because we have forgotten. Out tribal practices.
There is no more tribe. There is no morning fire. She praised my story. I remember exactly what she said, but she would never quote someone carrying on about her work. I am editing an anthology. May I buy it? And that was when she started to train me to be a professional writer. We often communicated through cartoons. We passed notes like bad kids in Catechism class.

She was quite fond of a character I had invented named Tiny Rhino. Turn out Ursula would have loved a rhino the size of a teacup Chihuahua in her handbag at all times. She was also critical of many things in modern culture. Being in San Diego from her beloved Thurman Street in Portland, she was appalled at what she considered to be fake Mexican food joints. Not a fan of Taco Bell or Del Taco. We invented a fast food chain named Bogo-Mex. This is what a Bogo-Mex would look like:.
It was becoming time for her to return home. But there was one other top-ten moments before she left. Can you imagine? Ursula sideways in her seat, laughing and gobbling snacks. And when they slow down, they turn red. You get the idea.
Many, many people knew her better than I. I am seeing all kinds of encomiums about her in major publications and on big-time websites. I know people who attended to her personally and professionally. Who visited her home and sat for hours with her. I took her Taoist approach to heart, though. She seemed like a wandering Tao master. That being said, she sent me her new books.
We sent each other cartoons. We fretted about mutual friends. We saw each other at various important, transformative moments in my life. Each time there was a major evolution about to happen, Ursula would appear. Two Men in Town. In the Blood. The Lookalike. Ana Maria in Novela Land. Puerto Ricans in Paris.
