Fifty Years Ago


This photo of the Parroquia in San Miguel, when the moon happened to appear directly overhead on the axis of the nave, was taken almost exactly fifty years after I visited San Miguel on July 20 1969 and first saw this extraordinary building. This also happened to be the same day as Neil Armstrong’s historic first footstep on the moon, an event I watched here in a local cantina. July 2019.

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

Remarkably, this six-foot square image is simply drawn in pastels on the stone pavement of the Plaza Civica in San Miguel de Allende, part of an exhibit of 25 similar pieces of artwork. If you look carefully you can see the radial joints in the stonework on the left. Sadly, all this will be worn away by passing feet within a day or two.
