Haramara - Mexico retreat

Updated: Dec 20, 2023

Living in the high Desert - Santa Fe New Mexico - the air is dry and vegetation is sparse, we do have fabulous sunsets, open vistas and a huge sky that opens your heart.

Mexico, Haramara = "Mother Sea" a retreat on the pacific ocean - jungle vegetation, humid air that feels so good on your skin - almost no lotion is needed. The constant sound of the ocean, waves crashing as loud as a spirit-train coming through, open cabanas with thatched roofs - no electricity - evenings are lit with oil lamps and candles. the sunsets!! Fire in the sky!

The experience has brought me home to nature in a powerful way, so powerful I felt a little out of myself - watching, being the watcher, detached and yes a bit shaken too, often close to tears.

The painting time was very intense, I was looking for something I did not know what it was - waiting for something to open - a door to the unfamiliar.

I realized that this week is only the beginning of "that something".
