In my travels to Mexico I feel a
sense of freedom and adventure open up, spaces for the appearance of the
improbable and the fantastic all emerging within everyday sights. In
Mexico, life and death do not seem opposed to each other, but are parts of a
single process to be accepted as a whole and honored for its sometimes harrowing
and sometimes sweet diversity. We need feel no sense of shame for who we
are in these places, being both visceral and spiritual, crossing from one side
to the other naturally and spontaneously.
