“Cabo Pulmo is a small village located in between Cabo San Lucas and La Paz, Mexico,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Samantha Schwann. “In 1995, the residents petitioned the government to create a marine reserve to protect the area, which was being depleted by fishing operations and causing damage to the coral reef, estimated to be 20,000 years old. Since then, the biomass has seen an increase of nearly 450%, with a return of some species which hadn’t been seen since the 1980’s.”
“This scene is awesome. I love how they are making this turn in unison, my eye follows them to the dark spot where they are heading. I bet this was so amazing to witness in real life. Thanks for the detailed caption explaining the need to protect this area. Well done.” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)

(Palace in Graffiti- Part 2.) full post at joshovaswitness.com. Este ciudad tiene un ritimo. This city has a rhythm. That's what I remember thinking my first few days in Mexico City, back in May. As I am I writing this in Mexico Parque, I hear the sounds of some evening drums beating outward.
The heart beat of the Earth personified and extending outward w/ fervent rhythm. With purpose and clarity. These are drums of calling. They are beating to our hearts, keep the pace they say. They are drums for the journey.
The reason for so much inner turmoil stemmed from almost every part of my life in Texas. From the govt to the flat and monotonous landscape. The heat. The taxing job. The superficiality. The oppressive superiority of politicians, pompous Christians, family members, religious officials, people who have never even left the fucking country.
I may come to tire of Mexico City and/or run out of $ before I publish my first book. But it’s the kindness, hospitality, incredible although disparate exchange rate, and every day is an adventure. But here in this complicated colonial city- I have not seen one fight or felt unsafe since once. There are police officers on every corner near the more affluent areas of town.
Mexico City is alive and life is what keeps calling us all forward as a species, a planet, as a human being.
I've seen people dying in small Texas and southern towns. Dimming down their own brilliance, to keep the peace for others. I did that too for a long time to make self-absorbed assholes happy. I’m so glad I broke free to be who I truly am.
I am an air sign. I am not the lungs but I am the air that blows through them. The wind, my companion, my sign, my essence. It's time for an ancient and alive air to blow through me. I welcome it now. Bienviendo a Mexico. Bienviendo to the living.
