Life will give lemons this is well known; you can keep sucking lemon pulp and be the bitter or plant seeds and be a lemon farmer be the richer. The very same source of pain can be the inspiration for future greasiness if you choose to be grateful right in the midst of hardships and distress. It’s simple really. Lemon pulp sucker or lemon tree farmer. Bitterness or riches. Which do you choose?

Teodrose was born in Ethiopia the same year Emperor Haile Selassie was deposed by the communist Derg junta. The great grandson five generations removed of Atse (emperor) Tewodros Kassa II, the greatest king of Ethiopia, Teodrose is clearly influenced by the history and his connection to Ethiopia. Through his experiences growing up as first generation refugee in America, Teodrose writes poignantly about the universal experiences of joys, pains and a hope for a better tomorrow that binds all of humanity.
Teodrose has written extensively about the intersection of politics, economic policies, identity, and history. He is the author of "Serendipity's Trace" and newly released "Soul to Soil", two works that inspect the ways we are dissected as a people and shows how we can overcome injustice through the inclusive vision of togetherness.
