Making a Living

Whatever it takes, a lesson each and every one should learn in youth.  Here it is a natural way of making it through the day, and providing the essentials for the family.

Making a living

not what it is all about

familia comes first


Car Jockeys

with the patience

of a toothless smile, idling

on the next Senorita to shimmer by.

Curb lawyers,

hustling empty parking spaces.

Matadors waving red rags

on a paved plaza de toros,

sweeping the sidewalks

for loose change:

            all in a day’s work.


In the stands, familia

waiting for an ear or two:

            if it comes it comes.


In another world,

bereft of the dignity of purpose—

driftwood waiting on the tide.

The photography focuses on Lake Chapala and the surrounding villages that include Ajijic, Chapala, Jocotepec an so much more.  In addition to my pics many have been contributed by Antonio Ramblés  . Visit Antonio Ramblés travels blog at
