there was a large vase.
a very special vase
in a very special place.
a very pretty vase
part poetry, part decor.

We came only to sleep, we came only to dream:

it is not true, it is not true that we came to

live on earth.

We came to turn ourselves into springtime grass:

our hearts come to life again, they open their

corollas,

our body is a flower: it gives some flowers and

withers.

— from “Vida efimera” (Ephemeral life)

A dash of salt and lemon —

gate of our being, awaken me, bring dawn,
grant that I see the face of the living day,
grant that I see the face of this live night,
everything speaks now, everything is transformed,
O arch of blood, bridge of our pulse beating,
carry me through to the far side of this night….

gateway of being: open your being, awaken,
learn then to be, begin to carve your face,
develop your elements, and keep your vision
keen to look at my face, as I at yours,
keen to look full at life right through to death,
faces of sea, of bread, of rock, of fountain,
the spring of origin which will dissolve our faces
in the nameless face, existence without face
the inexpressible presence of presences…

— from “Sunstone,” by Octavio Paz

In a park somewhere is Sonora, as we were returning to Tucson from several days in Alamos, I captured a photo as Michael, Alex and Petie set in the midday sun waiting for the motorcoach to be gassed up. I later layered in a guitar creating this Photoshop image. These guys were an important part of our trip to Alamoa, Sonora.

Santos Entrance 2 (1 of 1) blogHacienda de los Santos Entrance — Images by kenne

Jim and Nancy Swickard purchased the 300-year-old Hacienda in 1989 and renovation became their obsession. Along with daughter Jamie, her husband Ramon their devotion to details has helped create a truly luxurious hideaway with a genuine flavor of Old Mexico. Without question, Hacienda de los Santos is the crown jewel of Alamos, one of Mexico’s most splendid colonial cities. Once you enter this colonial village, you’ll experience the feeling of a different age, the romanticism of Spain and the sweetness of Old Mexico.
