Focus on Art - September 2017

Estela’s sculpture really must be seen in person although it photographs well. To experience it personally you can “feel” the work truly awe-inspiring

Well laid out and to the point. Most people did not feel that justice was served, but that God will be the final judge.

Welcome to Mexico! - August 2017

Gabrielle Blair

It is strange, but true, that many of us fortunate enough to be living our retirement in Mexico, and who are blessed with enough money to be able to afford the help of the local people, indulge ourselves in feelings of superiority. We should listen to ourselves as we speak about the Mexicans, hold up the mirror and take a good look at the person who is so ready to cast aspersions on the Mexicans, our hosts, who have graciously accepted us into their community. If we were able to really imagine being on the receiving end of our ungrateful, self-serving manners, observe what we do and hear what we say, we might shame ourselves into a bit of humility. It would seem that economic wealth, for some, encourages ingratitude and a desire to denigrate those with less. The master/slave relationship comes to mind.

 

Dear Mr. Hemingway
