When someone lives in such a beautiful place as we do, it's easy to get distracted. But I really tried to carve out some time to get back to my "Greeter sculptures". They are outrageously funny. I am having a great time scavenging for parts to give them life. Many a walks, and trips to the "basurero", where I have become fast friends of Flor and her husband. It's getting very hot so the time has come to get up real early and get some stuff done before the sun starts steaming.
The broad strokes have been done, but the detail work needs to happen now.
There is an island off the Sea of Cortez called Espíritu Santo. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been at. The ocean is translucent, clearly blue green. Ultra polarized gorgeous. The island is protected by an environmental arm from the Mexican Government and only some camping is allowed via a permit. This rock formation forming the cave where I am sitting is from one side of the island, the color of the clay is very red. It's truly an amazing environment.
