The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Ancient Garden


“True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, 
not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, 
which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. 
The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. 
A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.”

Palacio de Cortes



The Palace of Cortés in CuernavacaMexico, is, at almost 500 years old, the oldest conserved colonial era civil structure in the continental Americas. The building began as a fortified residence for Hernán Cortés and his second wife Juana Zúñiga. It was built in 1526, over a Tlahuica/Aztec tribute collection center, which was destroyed by the Spanish during the Conquest. Cortés replaced it with a personal residence to assert authority over the newly conquered peoples. As Cortés’ residence, it reached its height in the 1530s, but the family eventually abandoned it.

Frozen


Reserva tu derecho a pensar, porque incluso pensar erróneamente es mejor que no pensar en absoluto.
Reserve your right to think, for even to think wrongly is better than not to think at all.
