|CORNER STONE SCULPTURE GARDEN, SONOMA|
On Good Friday, we decided to drive to Sonoma for lunch at Corner Stone, which is home to a large, fanciful sculpture garden. Driving up 101, we passed a large emerald green field filled with sheep and their young lambs. It was a beautiful pastoral sight, and we told the small children we would stop to take photographs on the way home. As we slowly approached the same grassy field later that day, the scene was different. The sheep and their lambs were now tightly corralled in a circular pen and on the periphery, a man in levis was wrestling one of the white lambs to the ground.
My eight-year old grandson bawled out, “Leave! Leave! They´re going to make lamb chops!” And although their mother told him the man was just going to shear the sheep for their wool, James had seen something he understood.
fought for independence against the Spanish Empire in the Mexican War of Independence. He was a deputy in the Mexican Chamber of Deputies for Durango and a member of the Supreme Executive Power. He also served as the first president of Mexico.”
|UNALTERED DOG GUARDING HOME|
The dusty colonia of Guadalupe Victoria is almost directly across the highway from the steel and concrete international airport for Puerto Vallarta. I drove Kira, the rescued dog that had been riddled with TVT, to the clinic on the day before I flew to San Francisco.
|WHIMSICAL FRONT OF HUMBLE HOME|
Inside the colonia, there is a large dirt field with a sign posted in Spanish asking people to respect “green areas.”
