Testament Of Love

IMG_1086.jpg

Santa Maria Magdalena Del Pazzis Cemetery stands as a testament to family and love.  Ironically, spray painted along the curb along the entrance are the words, TE RECUERDES DE ME? (do you remember me?). Clearly, this place has been made sacred by the families that have interred their loved ones, commissioned these imposing sculptures, and maintained this cemetery since 1863.

Sí será siempre te recordare….. (yes, I will always remember you).

Happy Valentine’s Day

It is an honor and a privlidge to be able to document this cemetery over the many years.

Even the Lilies….

You brought me the lilies out of love. How could I tell you they made me sad. So beautiful. They’re perennials, you reminded. I know, I whispered. I know. Your lilies bloom for me every year. They taunt me in your absence. They smell of nothing. They smell of death.IMG_0421.jpg

On The Street Where You Lived

An explosion and fire at an electric substation threw much of northern Puerto Rico into darkness late Sunday in a setback for the U.S. territory’s efforts to fully restore power more than five months after Hurricane Maria started the longest blackout in U.S. history.IMG_0954.jpg

It has been 145 Days since Hurricane Maria made landfall & 159 Days since Hurricane Irma made landfall on the island of Puerto Rico.

POWER IS STILL AN ISSUE……BTW: so is drinkable water!
