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

Rebozo


A mother wearing a Rebozo ( traditional Mexican shawl ). The women moved with grace and dignity; the babies moved with them, wide-eyed and mostly quiet. It seemed so different from most babies in western cultures--these mothers weren’t constantly doing things to entertain the babies or to stop them from fussing. And the moms were out and about, laughing, socializing, shopping, working, hauling things--with both hands free!
