The Magic of the Cities.
Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer
De pronto vi mi cabeza
en el espacio perdida,
sin pensamiento y sin vida
y sin humana impureza.
Sentí profunda extrañeza,
más luego extendí mi lodo
y fui descubriendo el modo
de hacer mi cuerpo infinito.
El polvo al polvo remito,
Dejo de ser y soy todo.

A new sculpture as part of exhibit "Benches Dialogue" at Paseo de la Reforma, main street of the city. It has no name and no name of the sculptor (I call it 'Two Faces' for obvious reasons).

El gozo del baile en todo su esplendor! Feliz Fin de Semana. Happy Week-End.

The cathedral, began life as a Franciscan friary, fortress-like complex. The side portal of the church has a fine colonial-Plateresque façade with, above the gable, the symbols of a crown, cross, skull and bones framed by an alfiz.
Detail, for Kate.
The Chapel of the Third Order, at the rear of the monastery building, has a very typical Mexican Baroque façade, embellished with a small figure representing Hernán Cortés. Like the chapel's lovely carved wooden altar (1735), the façade shows strong Indian influence.
The gilded 18th century altarpiece, restored and in beautiful condition, it is one of the few colonial baroque retablos to survive both the neoclassical vogue that swept through many churches in the region during the late 1700s and early 1800s.
In front, The Chapel of St. Jude Thaddeus.
Location for a TV series, the entrance of Cuernavaca Cathedral, formerly a Franciscan monastery, its construction begun in 1533 under the supervision of Hernan Cortes. Cuernavaca is a beautiful place very near Mexico City.
