The origins of Teotihuacán are uncertain, although it is thought some of the inhabitants arrived from the Valley of Mexico to the south, refugees from an eruption of the Xitle volcano, which caused major devastation and forced the survivors in the region to seek a new place to... continue reading

Bliss in Ignorance... A Fool's Refuge

John was a regular visitor to charity institutions. His life felt incomplete without talking to people in need and trying to make them feel better. He did not donate anything in cash or kind. He spent his time with children, elders or general people in distress that he came across in real life on in some institutions. In an orphanage he always used to meet Peter, a boy who was very enthusiastic in craft and art, but otherwise very depressed person. After talking to Peter time and again, John realized... continue reading

Women (want to) RULE...

Truth in advertising requires ads to present the benefits and qualities of their products in an honest fashion. Of course, advertising has a very loose relationship to reality especially in the manner in which women are pictured. Advertisers recognize that women are responsible solely or as important decision makers on most family purchases as well as being big spenders on furniture, clothing and travel. The image of a strong and confident woman has replaced the white haired CEO type as a spokesperson... continue reading

Favorite architect

Antoni Gaudi was a Catalan architect and till now is one of my favorite artists.His passions in work was like disease, he was sacrifices all time and live to work, that’s why his visions are so wonderful from the whole building structure to one single detail.Colorful, full of live and natural structured architecture sometimes looks like it was made by power of nature not a human, but who we are besides like not one of those powers, human needs fantasies to be human. continue reading

Living Life to its Fullest

Every second of every day needs to be lived to its fullest. It is very humbling to look at this great big universe we live in and realize just how fragile life is. As a human race, we are so busy with the day-to-day "things" of just making it through another 24 hours. God gave us all our senses to enjoy this temporary place we call home. It is easier just to skim through life looking at the big things in the broad picture. We need to dig deeper to hear, see, feel, smell, and taste all those scrumptious... continue reading

A Walk With The Last Patrol

Twelve men are kneeling and huddled in a circle.
