less talk more pictures..... {in theory}

here are the pics from our jaunt to chumayo, outside of santa fe. it's a santuario where people come to collect holy dirt, make offerings, make wishes. it was an aesthetic jumble and overload for the senses. i couldn't help but be moved by the sheer volume of things that were there representing hope, a communion with god, desire....

my personal "religion" is deeply rooted in aesthetics and how what you see makes you feel or think. so on that note... less talk.....

new mexico sky

i am trying to catch up.... it's that time of the quarter when grading starts to stack and my brain races with numbers and lists and hopes for just one extra hour in the day..... i have mail to report, and more polaroids to share and and and....
