Rise above.

drawing from about a month ago.

about the political sensation
that is immigration...
may the people in power
learn how this very country came about.

sometimes i wonder if part of the confusion has something to do with the name.
america is the name of two combined continents, no?
north america and south america.
when i was in mexico i found the following words on pesos: estados unidos mexicanos.
so, mexico is the united states of mexico.
the mexican united states!
and this place here is also a place of united states, but of where?
the united states of america?
which one...north or south?
the other countries are a bunch of united states of their own individual country.
and this country is the united states of whole continent(s)?
does the name united states of america actually refer to every state in north and south america?
from what i gather this place was named incorrectly
by people who thought they found a new place.
of course, this place was only new to them as it was already inhabited.
said people who thought they found this place
emigrated from their country to this place.
which made them what?
immigrants.

when the culture of the usa is so saturated in money and business
it is a wonder why anyone would not welcome people from other countries with open arms.
maybe it is a subconscious fear of what the so-called founders of this country did before.

to LIBERTY
and the PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.

Hojas.

Beautiful trees + Catedral de San Ildefonso.
Mérida, Yucatán.
 
This shot was made while I was on the second floor of MACAY (Museo de Arte)
through the canopies of the beautiful trees in the garden.
Catedral de San Ildefonso was built by the Maya,
who were forced through slavery to destroy their own temples with their own hands.
They were then forced to build structures such as the Cathedral
using stone from their own, former Mayan temples.
