Dia de la Madre

The elderly and mothers are two pedestals that stand, uncompromised, as the natural order of life in the village. No longer universal in the celebration of life, but here it is the way it is.

Dia de la Madre

full of a lust for all life

full of children’s dreams




is everyone’s

reason for being,

well past sunset

Madre dances

in celebración

everyone takes turns

the words change,

the rhythm repeats itself

all in joyful noise,

and laughter

all too brief this day



Why not every day?

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 www.antoniorambles.com
