Although the original la catrina image ‘symbolized the inner-emptiness of the upper class (fancy dead women in ball gowns)’ and ‘created to show the reason why a revolution was needed to equalize Mexican society’ I am drawn to the revolutionary catrinas, brandishing rifles and criss-crossed ammunition belts, with little baby skeletons slung on their backs.
This beautiful little shrine was well loved.
Open air, stone and color.
Took a short and lively bus ride to downtown Puerto Vallarta for our first gaze on the beach, and a stroll on the Malecon- an oceanside boardwalk.
Loved these bronze pieces, especially the chairs!
Loneliness does not come from being alone, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important, said Carl Jung.
The interesting thing is why we’re so desperate for this anesthetic against loneliness, said David Foster Wallace.
We’re all in this alone, said Lily Tomlin.
Inspired by these daily minimalist photographs showing the view through an Alaskan cabin window and this video compilation of one second from every day for a year I’m attempting to establish a daily routine. I’ll be taking a photo out of the window wherever I wake every morning of 2013 and posting them here under the title ‘Waking Glimpse’. Being a happy nomad means that aside from brushing my teeth, there isn’t much that stays the same for me from day to day. This isn’t about capturing the most perfect composition of an incredible landscape, but more about catching a glimpse of my everyday. Not sure yet what will happen to the final collection, but this will be part challenge, part mediation, part mindful study of the place I’m in.
