have been living in Mexico since the beginning of December.
everything cool here.
people take my work seriously...ask me how it is going on the regular.
have a bed for the first time in years.
marble floor + large bathroom w massive tub.
trees w avocados, bananas, pomegranates, limes, grapefruit + peaches
found either in my yard or nearby on the street.
bamboo all over.
sounds of roosters, donkeys, dogs + all kinds of birds everyday.
not one single time have I caught grief for being without money here.
how nice it is not to be disrespected (+ hugely disappointed) in this manner!!!
feels so much better to be in this environment,
surrounded by people who take Artists seriously...
see value in our work and our efforts.
people are far more generous in Mexico.
on days when I have not had cash, I am fed by people who care for my well-being.
there is a woman whose portrait I made who will not let me pay for her delicious tejate.
it is the best.
am drawing + painting, exposing sheet + roll film.
to the good Life.
if You do not feel that sentence, then go find it.
my visa is up in a few days.
off to Guatemala.
