Loaded with butterflies

Looks like leaves... But each of those leaves is a Monarch butterfly. Several millions arrive each year from Canada in early Autumn and fly back in early Spring.

Snails flying by

Snails flying by

Snail mail has become a despised media. While I still held long conversations at a distance written with ink on paper, with latency measured in weeks and not in milliseconds, that's basically history now. Snail mail is where invoices are received. Ocassionally, a joyous invitation finds its way into my mailbox… But its regular use has been almost completely abandoned.

Which probably makes it more striking and more of a surprise to receive a very short note of a good friend living far away just stating a very warm greeting.

(of course, the paper was not GPG-signed, but I'll have to believe it was sent by him ;-) )

(Oh, about the title: The card is a print of Don Nisbett's «Fly By», which recreates Ilwaco, Washington's panorama)

Golden sleeping beauty

Golden sleeping beauty

People who know me also know that, although it seems impossible due to the generalized opinion, I love living in Mexico City. I love the city, I love its chaos — And I love its beauty. I truly love the two paradigmatic volcanos that lie across the valley, South-East from us, Popocatépetl (in Náhuatl, «smoking mountain») and Iztaccíhuatl (in Náhuatl, «white lady», often called «sleeping lady» as its profile reminds of a dreamy princess). I never avoid mentioning to my friends when, on a clear day, I get to see them.

Yesterday was one such day, most beautifully... Sadly this image does not reflect the awe. I was leaving my Institute, hurried as rain was starting to fall, and the thunders towards the Ajusco (South) pronosticated a long, heavy rain. They were not mistaken.

Less than 100m away from my Institute's door, I had to hit the breaks on my bike, and stood stunned at this image. A dark, almost black, layer of clouds. You can see the streetlights are already on, it was quite dark already. But there was a clean air corridor towards the East - And there we had Izta and Popo greeting us, covered in snow, golden due to the sun setting behind my back.

…This is just a crappy cellphone photo. But... It was so beautiful I had to share it, not just with the people I met later that day, but with whoever stumbles upon this blog.
