Waste Land

I have been back in Guanajuato for just a little over a week. I had a wonderful time playing with my friend Chris Brunt at Highland Park United Methodist Church in Dallas. It was our 4th year playing together at Easter. After Easter, I stayed a bit longer to work on more details for the launch of BUZZ.

To answer the 2 most common questions I get from you guys:

1. No, I haven't been doing anything with our house building project out at our land. Waiting to get a few more funds. Don't worry you guys will know as soon as I start building again.

2. And no, you didn't miss the launch of BUZZ. It turns out that creating a new show and all of the things that go along with it may take more time than building a house. I know it will be worth it. More on BUZZ soon. Remember what I said about patience?

In Texas I had the chance to work in a few gardens. Even during an epic drought everything in Texas is much greener than here in the high desert of central Mexico. I worked a bit with my mother in her gardens and we both tackled my Grandparents yard. I love working with plants. I currently don't get much of a chance to do much gardening. Nice to get my hands dirty again. I didn't even mind weeding the Blackberry's. It did take a few days to get some of the thorns out of my fingers, but the berry's look so yummy it is always worth it.

After working on BUZZ for a week and a half my mother and I went to the Nasher Sculpture Center ( What a beautiful place in downtown Dallas. If you are ever in Dallas you must stop by and check this place out. A great way to recharge the creative batteries.

I found a different type of inspiration while watching Waste Land ( with my cousin Matt and his lovely wife Lynn. Among other thoughts, Waste Land made me think of having my art make a positive impact on people. I'm working on it. Waste Land is a truly wonderful film about an incredible artist who is making a difference.

In the spirit of recycling, here are a few fotos I stumbled across recently. These were all taken on the main highway to Leon, GTO.

I bet at least 1 of those bags reads, "FOR PEANUTS ONLY".
Interesting place to lay down.
Some kind of animal parts.
