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

Calles Vacías Viernes Santo / Empty Streets Good Friday

Friday, April 2, 2010
Good Friday is a Christian holiday that commemorates the death of Jesus Christ; it takes place 2 days before Easter Sunday.

Scripture: Matthew 7:15-20
15. "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16. You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? 17. So, every sound tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears evil fruit. 18. A sound tree cannot bear evil fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20. Thus you will know them by their fruits"

Evangelio San Mateo (7:15-20)
“Guardaos de los falsos profetas, que vienen a vosotros vestidos de ovejas, pero que por dentro son lobos rapaces.
Por sus frutos los conoceréis. ¿Acaso se recogen uvas de los espinos o higos de los abrojos?
Así también, todo árbol sano da buenos frutos, pero el árbol podrido da malos frutos.
El árbol sano no puede dar malos frutos, ni tampoco puede el árbol podrido dar buenos frutos.
Todo árbol que no lleva buen fruto es cortado y echado en el fuego.
Así que, por sus frutos los conoceréis.

Darn! I lost my pocket Spanish dictionary so I'll have to wait to get your cartoon translated, altho it seems pretty clear, tho. For two other Good Friday posts visit Leif of Eagan and especially Randy of Santa Fe. I observed part of the pilgrims procession at the Santuario at Chimayo and it is quite astounding. The faith in some of the people here in New Mexico is very strong!

Love the symmetry with the arrows and nice effect to add movement. Happy Easter!
