"Just in case you were curious, these stories and rambles were banged out in the midst of working on a completely different writing project about guys from Mexico and Central America who sneak over the US border and ride around the freight train lines looking for work. My plan was to write exciting travel stories that would educate people about the global economy and give voice to a section of the population that hardly ever gets heard. Unfortunately, I kept finding myself in all these fucked up situations where I wanted to be able to help people who desperately needed it but all I had was my pen and my journal and it didn't feel like enough. The "Vida Secreta" title is just a perspective joke, it's coming from being a white kid writing about another people's culture and problems, trying to figure out my role in it all as an outsider and remembering to laugh."
