|STEPS OF INGLESIA SAN TOMAS, GUATEMALA - STATE LIBRARY OF FLORIDA (1938)|
Well I'm going to use a photo I've used before for Sepia Saturday but I think I cropped it earlier. Here it is in all its glory again.....
|Alex and Barbara Conner Leith Waters Edinburgh 1971|
I did have fun though looking up Chichicastenango in Guatemala. I have to date been remarkably ignorant about Guatemala and feel that I have led a somewhat narrow existence.
The photographer of the photo prompt in Sepia Saturday this week was Joseph Janney Steinmetz. Here's a photo of him on his way to Guatemala.
I wondered what music might be connected to Chichicastenango and found this on YouTube.
Speaking of music, I went to a funeral this weekend. Sounds glum I know.
It was a hot day. I should have worn a hat like the people in the photo but I wasn't really thinking properly. Jane was so loved by her whole community that the chapel was groaning at the seams and many of us had to sit outside. The service was very special - just like her. It was made especially so by the music that had been chosen to celebrate her life.
I thought you might like to experience some of it.
And here's some great footage of Jane when she was a slip of a girl on a magnificent voyage with her family half way around the world.
Bon voyage Jane. You will be much missed. Thank you for sharing your gentle spirit with us here on earth.
