Photos From Here

Hello and happy New Year’s Eve! Here are a few more photos from here. Wishing you the best of everything for the year to come. – Lori 😊

Gate into the past

The construction here in this corner of Mexico is frantic! I think that’s probably the case along a lot of tropical coastlines these days. Everyone craves a slice of paradise for themselves. I’m in no position to criticize the rapid development as it’s happening because people like me love it here and are seeking what we imagine to be heaven here on Earth. My presence here contributes to the changes as much as anyone’s.

Chickens foraging in a public walkway that leads down to the beach.

A calmer past and a hectic future stand right alongside each other here, close enough to touch. Sometimes the two tenses hold hands affectionately and cooperatively, and sometimes they stare straight ahead, separate, and in cold silence. The chickens still roam free, clucking and pecking, as a sleek BMW moves past them over a cobblestone street. Beyond the luxury car and the chickens, men work to build concrete and glass structures that reach up from a trampled paradise toward an unattainable heaven.
