Typical Chiapas embroidery. Women's work on a grand scale.
Marvelous marimba music.
For cat lovers. This Chiapas region has biodiversity sanctuaries. There are more of the cat species here than anywhere in the world.
Each day brings wondrous unexpected surprises.
...the smallest thing like a crimson dragon fly, Veronica's smile, the burst of flavour of the zucchini flower quesadilla, a violin in the distance...
My heart soars when I see - stunning landscapes, bridges in high places, an archway supporting a 16th century aqueduct, embroidery in wild colours. People in passionate embrace in the street. Families together. Dads walking hand in hand with their children.
I am beginning to think about what I may have missed when I lived a 'purposeful' regular life.
How much of the unexpected do we exclude in our lives?
I am a member of the Third Space group in Auckland. The group offers a place to be, a place to relax, to connect, to reflect.
The synergy of people bringing their talents and gifts and hopes and their desire to build community is an inspiration. God inspired.
This motorbike journey is my manifold Third Space.
