Here in Sunny Mexico, the country that knows how...
If you ever think of driving a horse across the border into this country...DON'T.
I'm going to find another Assyrian, or any illiterate Christian will do in a pinch, and start a World Mexican Universal Alliance. We're gonna have meetings and issue statements and I'm gonna write incomprehensible letters to the greatest World leaders I can find telling them all about me and the other guy in our organization and what we think should be done everywhere in the world but especially in Iraq, where somebody owes me something.
Of course we'll become affiliates of the Federation so our declarations will carry some weight. I'll be posting the "hours" from our meetings, which will be held at Margarita's Gin joint and comfort station as often as we manage an upright quorum.
The weather here is great...cool in the evenings and sunny all day and EVERY day from now until eight months from now. The light is ideal for working outdoors. Being about 7000 feet up the air is thin...makes it harder to climb hills but easier to get drunk faster. Being lighter the atmosphere also feels light and the blue of the sky has a "light" more transparant look to it.
We have to finish up some details but I should be back to work soon. Hammurabi came with us and I'll be setting up the studio...a table outside under a shade tree next week. Fortunately, for all concerned, there is no internet access out at the "rancho" so I'll have to mosey on into town a couple of times a week. I'll write at home and bring it in to shoot at you...the added time between thought and posting might improve the quality, though I wouldn't count on it.
There's a definite feeling of being "out" of it down here. I mean America's ridiculous pose that the world is jealous enough to commit suicide in envy. America goes nuts every few years and its population is getting less and less able to spot the symptoms...largely due to the fact that yesterdays "radicals" have mortgages to pay and their kids are clamoring for Disneyland and Pops and Moms don't want to be burned to cinders in Cinderella's Castle by some "jealous and envious" Crazy.
Turns out what people are really buying into is their own eventual undoing, with a lot of candy and shiney objects thrown in their paths to keep them distracted. Enjoy yourselves.
