20180101: Music from the streets & heart…

I was considering calling it a day & shutting down.

This man came wandering up, he spoke a word or 2 of English.

I am only slightly better with my Spanish.

But for a peso, he strummed his guitar and made a low singing of some kind of song.

I thanked him & since I took his photo, gave him another 5 pesos. Yes, he is strumming/playing in the photo & plays with the fret hand in that position.

I can looking into this face & listen to his song… yeah, maybe there is a miracle somewhere that some human will learn to use & teach PEACE around earth.

Happy Hew Year 2018.

May you bring as much amusing times as harsh times.

May we find time to laugh once more….

20171216: Poinsettia tree by Daylight in San Juan de los Lagos

I needed some nice clouds to make a dramatic sky.

Looks like the Sky spirits did comply & help out today. With a little off-camera flash I got a nice effect to show off the poinsettia Christmas tree here in San Juan de los Lagos, MX.

These are some brave souls. Bloody cold & windy but they did their thing beside the San Juan de los Lagos “Saint’d Church.

So whatever you celebrate, in whatever style you do it, may it be happy & fun.

(personally I hate this time of year too many family members have used Nov. to Feb. to destroyed everything in my life. But I lived in snow country for 25 years so I love winter itself, without humans.)
