A discussion on the things that matter. As an educator, I take pride in the fact that I am a constant and lifelong learner. Writing about the things that matter in life, the experiences that continually shape us, the people we meet, the food we taste, the conversations we have, the lessons we've learned, the places we visit, the hearts we touch, the connections we make.
Said to me, “Don’t I know your name?” I muttered somethin’ underneath my breath She studied the lines on my face I must admit I felt a little uneasy When she bent down to tie the laces of my shoe Tangled up in blue
- Bob Dylan
Tangled Up in Blue
I can't help but think of these lyrics every time I see this photo. This woman was photographed in Pisac, Peru during the Fiesta de la Virgin de la Carmen. She looks like she has the map of the world etched upon her skin, with the worries of her entire people shadowed within her eyes. I took so many photographs of the warm, gentle, gracious people of Peru on my journey there, and still looking back through photographs, they are some of my favorites ever taken. Maybe another photo essay to come!!!!
