'Utilizando el género epistolar, una carta a mi madre, reflexiono sobre mi nueva vida e identidad como emigrante en Australia explorando mis percepciones sobre la diferencia cultural y lingüística. Lejos de mis hijas y nietos en México, en esta carta, tardíamente escrita, relato mis recuerdos, nostalgias y vivencias en el nuevo ambiente, y sobre todo, hablo de mis dificultades para manejar emocionalmente mi miedo a la ausencia en los momentos importantes del ciclo de vida, la enfermedad y la muerte.' -- Author's abstract

[Translation: Utilising the epistolary genre, in a letter to my mother I reflect on my new life and identity as a migrant in Australia, relating my perceptions of the cultural and linguistic differences. Far from my children and grandchildren, in this letter, written too late, I relate my memories and experiences in a new environment. Above all I speak of the difficulties of managing the fear I have of being absent during the most important moments in the cycle of life, illness and death.]
