"Gratitude"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

It was moving to read in Zeny and Reynas Artist Statement of their devotion to nature and lifes essential elements and how this informs and nourishes their expression of Zapotec culture. I am deeply grateful for this spirit dog, this Xoloescincle, that has padded into my life! It really invites me, I feel, to open my eyes and heart with a sense of wonder, like a child, to the goodness and magic that is actually present in this world. The ability to transmit that is a great gift and transcends any border. Such artistry is very special, I feel. Thank you!
