Week’s End: Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge

                                                                       Week’s End

In Mexico, at 2 o’clock Saturday, all labor ceases. Since we’d been without electricity for 12 hours by then, I went to the neighborhood little grocery store to buy ice and saw my friend Agustin and his construction employees in the shade of trees by the road, enjoying a Saturday end-of-labor beer.  When I asked if I could snap a pic, they said of course, yes.  When I asked if they wanted ten pesos ( a joke–what many ask when you ask to snap a pic) Agustin joked back, “No, a beer.”  So I contributed a six pack for their pleasure!!!  They protested a bit, but not much.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      I’ve talked about Agustin on earlier blogs–including a profile. He’s a great humanitarian of our pueblo. He’s the one on the far right, hefting the beer. Here is a link.
