    This reminds me of the imagery in The Lacuna . . . pretty dreamy.

  4. Kay says:

    I was thinking of The Lacuna as well. I just finished reading Kingsolver’s Flight Behavior about the plight of the monarch butterflies.
    This looks wonderful.

      Oh yeah! Another Kingsolver story with a Mexico connection – I read it this winter. I actually just picked up her book Homeland (1989), which isn’t about Mexico, but it IS about a lot of the family themes that Beth writes about here, too. I hadn’t thought about all the Beth Berry/Barbara Kingsolver overlapping themes, but there are many now that I do.

    Looks like a crocodile trail through the mangroves and very beautiful indeed.

  7. I think you are so right-on. We have traveled throughout Mexico and other Latin American countries.

    For the last 11 years I have been volunteering in preschool classrooms in the Head Start program in the Mission District of San Francisco. This is primarily a Latin American Barrio and I want to extend your revelations to much of Latin America. There are families from almost every Latin American country and although their particular cultural backgrounds differ in music and the fine and culinary arts, their love of family and their craftsmanship are similar.

    Before I move to Cancun in February, I frequented the “beach cenote” too. I have fond memories of a relaxing cool dip in this natural pool with the added benefit of exfoliation by the small fish. Enjoyed your post and look forward to more.
