Christmas Past

Oh, the wonders of Christmas Past. Images from Christmases of my youth are indelibly imprinted in my memory evoking emotions of fun, joy, and surprise. I was a lucky kid.

Plaza Civica — Thursday Doors

This is my contribution to Norm’s Thursday Doors Photo Challenge. Actually, the doors are barely noticeable, since the stone work and  doors topic jut gave me an excuse to feature the unique stonework and statues gracing the top of the Plaza Civica Church in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

Who Hears the Silence?

Is there silence resting with these stones? Or do the voices go unheard? Do the spirits speak: explaining, exclaiming, lamenting, rejoicing? But we hear nothing but the silence. Waiting our time to join earlier travelers. Will we too murmur into the quietness? But no one hears but the silence?
