Children of Villa Hortencia

I've been slammed with work which has prohibited me from creating new blog posts. I've been wanting to share pictures of faces from my recent trip to the village of Villa Hortencia.

It's been over a month since the trip. However, these faces share a story that reminds me of how simple life really is and how complicated it can become if we allow stuff to get in the way. I'm sure the people of V.H. have their own complications in life, but I can't help think about areas in my life that can be simplified. In fact, having been on several trips like this, my perception of what is essential has changed. There is much tossed at me in the mainstream that is compelling. Having experienced this village has caused me to become aware of what is really important. It's not the stuff, it's the relationships we build.
