My Mexicali Series started with my love of Mexican Sun faces.
I grew up with in Southern California, big, copper and silver happy faced suns.
My mom had one hanging in our living room forever.
This morning was Solstice!
In the Northwest I look forward to the diminishing sunlight,
frankly, because my body is set to wake and sleep with the sunlight.
I am up every morning at 4:30-5:00 as the light begins to move into the sky.
In Southern California I didn’t pay too much attention to the times of the year,
but as we move away from the equator we see what the tilting of Earth does to our planet, and so we are more aware of the cycles.
I like it not too dark, and not too light, but just right —
Spring and Autumn are my favorite times of the year.
And where would our feminine Moon be without her partner, the Sun?
A marriage made in heaven!
