First, because of a three day texting exchange with Ben Aqua.  These reminded me of…


Ben Aqua, "Limp Wrist," 2012


Ben Aqua, "Ben Aqua Strikes a Pose," 2012


Yellow mannequin robot man, Palacio de Hierro, Mexico City


Then I received an email from Armando Miguélez of his latest series which reminded me…

Armando Miguélez, "From the series A Few Beds I've Slept In," 2012


…of this:

My current bed, Virgin pillows, Ethel Shipton piece, Mexico City, 2012


Then while wandering through the numerous stands at the art fair FeMACO I stumbled upon this…

Artist and image information unknown, photograph

…which reminded me of the exhibition at Bellas Artes in Mexico City:

This curio cabinet reminded me of a game…

Artist and title information unknown, mixed media

…that I saw in a plaza in Puebla:

Public art piece, Puebla, Mexico


Found pasted onto a building in Mexico City was a poster by PJ Rountree

PJ Rountree, Punto de Reunion

…and of course with all the earthquakes lately, this “meeting point” three blocks away comes to mind:

Punto de encuentro (meeting point), calle San Luis Potosi, Colonia Roma, Mexico City


Dr. Atl…

Dr. Atl, Landscape


…reminds me of the gorgeous view from my balcony:

And finally, when it just feels so bad at least there is someone around to be the voice of reason…


Irene Cloutier, "Love Hurts"


…and just because love does hurt:

Te mando besos (I send you kisses), seen on calle Monterrey, Mexico City
