If I had to look back through all the photos I’ve taken this year, it would take hours, so I’ve chosen to present four of my favorites from this month. Help me decide which one to cut, please. This prompt limits me to three. I’m decisioned out so I’m relying on you to help me pick the best three.
I love this photo for the tender emotions it reveals.
I love this photo for what it represents to me. Freedom and rising above the problems of the world.
I love the painterly quality of this photo.
I love this photo because it represents a surreal view of a favorite scene I face every day.

After dark in San Juan Cosala Plaza
Almost dark.so we went home.
Within 15 minutes of taking this photo, it was dark and I was in my car heading home.
After the skylight is covered. Dark in daylight!
The dark dome at the bottom is the dome over my bedroom. This shot taken from upstairs terrace–just to show those who know my house exactly where the fires were/are.
Hugh said he saw this as looking out from a dark hole into sunlight and I can see now what he saw. It is actually the face of a life sized sculpture of a woman carved out of cantera stone that is in front of my house. It is also a chair, so if I hadn’t put a huge pot of succulents in her lap, it would be possible to sit ion it. I took the picture at 1 a.m. in the morning with the aid of a flashlight.
These Chinese Lanterns are solar and await the darkness to shine!
Diego came up to visit her tonight. Frida’s ashes are inside the sculpture that resembles her in a stylized manner.
and then the moon came out.

There has been a lot going on besides Xmas this month. Here are some photos that didn’t seem to fit in anywhere else. I made a new friend in the pool that unfortunately I rescued too late. I bought wonderful crocheted gifts and witnessed a novel display at the massage booth in the local street fair, wore my toe socks for a month straight, (Well, I alternated between 5 different pair), Deysie got a new electric bike and drove it out to help me tackle my studio. I decorated the tree with past memories, admired the beautiful tool display in a local gallery, captured a garden godess and a bedroom sprite, saw the light display for the Virgin of Guadalupe festival in San Juan Cosala and accomplished a hundred other pressing tasks with committing them to photos.

When Jesus and Eduardo brought Berta and Rosario (Jesus’s wife and daughter, Eduardo’s mother and sister) over for a pool party on their day off from making Judy’s house beautiful, although they are some of Judy’s favorite people, she kept her distance and kept her mask on, but I (Morrie) surprised them by joining right in the fun. Click on the photos in order to enlarge them and read the story of our mutual surprises, as told by me, Morrie!!
Be sure to click on the photos to enlarge them and see the full captions.
It was quite a surprise when you all showed up in my pool today!
All work and no play made Eduardo and Jesus dull boys,
but you two seemed to be having a lot of fun.
I added a new dimension to the game
and you were good playmates to the end.
and it continues to taste delicious!!
