Animals roam freely here in the village.  They are pets and pests, and side by side companions, working and playing in an integrated daily mix. They are an accepted part of life, not just an addendum to the environment.



Haiku moments

Cats rule the garden,

a three ring circus

a spring awakening

felines rising with the birds:

life never sleeps in

the old cat dreaming –

in the garden the kittens

play with butterflies

contemplating lunch

cat attack, poised, statuesque –

a tattered end of a rope

eat, sleep, frolic

cats accept life as it is

just another day

winter wind debris

cats chasing after dry leaves


tabby tolerates

wanting a little loving

it’s universal


wishful thinking

feline brain freeze

morning stillness

a one legged grasshopper

the cats are bored

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
