Minimal Sunrise by Hugo Muralles

Flores has been well covered by now in Guatemala Daily Photo… thinking about it and something to write with this photo I remembered this wonderful dialog that makes a reference to that exact same feeling: “painting the door over and over again”; let us know if you recognize where does it come from and if you know this feeling from your own both personal or professional activities:

– I don’t get it. Why would anyone paint a picture of a door, over and over again, like, dozens of times?

– Well, then why should we do anything more than once? Should I just smoke this one cigarette? Maybe we should only have sex once, if it’s the same thing.  Why not a door? Sometimes you get fixated on something, and you might not even get why. You open yourself up and go with the flow, wherever the universe takes you.

That door was her home and she loved it. To me, that’s about making that feeling last.

 

Let’s Meet for Lunch at Petén Itzá Lake

Las Brisas at Petén Itzá Lake

Since Arturo Godoy has been living like a Mayan King in Petén for a couple of months now, I figure I invite everybody to have lunch at the Petén Itzá lake and have Arturo pay for it. I already made reservations and our table is ready for us.

Now the questions are: what are we having for lunch? Any suggestions for the menu?

Welcome to Petén

Petén is not just Tikal, it is far more… Here we are at the Eastern most side of Lake Petén Itzá, on the town El Remate. Does anybody remember the event that led to the astronomical view of the moon with the “company” of two planets? What are the names of the planets? 🙂
