Hi again. I haven’t been writing as diligently. Basically it’s about insomnia. We’re in the middle of a month of festivals in the city and in my neighborhood specifically. Last night some fool was launching skyrockets from somewhere nearby every 5 minutes or so until FOUR IN THE F-ING MORNING!!
Anyway, I enjoyed making this one. Hopefully you feel what I did when I saw this scene. A great setting for a garden party.
You may wonder about the color of the stone in the wall. They are called cantera roja and cantera verde. The stones come that way out of the quarry. Here in Oaxaca, the verde (green) version is much more common.
Tobias is out of his head cone and leg brace. He’s never going to be able to run like a shepherd, but he has all of his personality and his owner seems to give him some breaks now.
Wish me luck sleeping tonight….
