PB060254 - Version 2This is a detail from one of my retablos based on Tina Medotti’s epitaph written by Pablo Neruda. This detail depicts the “foam.” The epitaph is below.

Pure your gentle name, pure your fragile life,
bees, shadows, fire,snow, silence and foam
combined with steel and wire and pollen
to make up your firm and delicate being.

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.

          He is such a good sport. There is no picture of him, no matter how silly or grotesque, that he won’t let me post. That’s a nice quality in a photo subject! Someday I’m just going to do a spread on him.
