The return of the Sunday Traveler has been very much on my mind the last couple of weeks. It’s been hard to come back with recent events here on the home front, but here I am, and glad to rejoin all of you once again.
The month in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico was a wonderful experience, and there are a lot of photos and stories to share. Travel can be and mean so many things; my trip was a healing, and I dare to say, even an unintended spiritual experience.
There will be much more coming in the Sundays ahead. I needed to get my feet wet this week to get back into the groove, and begin again; this post is a baptism of sorts, a renewal.
The first photo in the lead, is the church of San Miguel Arcangel in San Miguel, and the Jardin Principal (the principal garden) the most famous of the many churches in San Miguel, more later. The photo above is the baptistry in the same church.
It’s the 5th Monday of the month, which means it’s all about editing and processing a photo for Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge. I thought I’d get into the mood for my trip to Mexico (leaving tomorrow), and work on a photo of a Mexican terracotta sun I have in my kitchen.
Photo taken with iPhone 6Plus, edited in Glaze on the phone, then PicMonkey to add a little boost to the color. After all, sunshine needs to be bright and warm.
I won’t be back until April 1st, so you won’t see me here for the next four or five weeks. I’ve decided to post photos on Instagram only, while I’m in San Miguel de Allende. I’ll be volunteering at a day care center for kids called Casa de Los Angeles (house of the angels), a day care for little ones of single working moms who wouldn’t be able to work otherwise. You can find me on Instagram at angeline.am, or log on here on my blog where my Instagram feed is brought over onto the right side of my front page.
Hasta la vista.
In the very early morning hours, while it’s still dark, I meditate on the nightlight gracing a bedside table that sends out light and shadow throughout the room.
You can find more mobile photography at the blog, Lens and Pens by Sally.
A Peace Lily, bloom facing out toward the sun. I didn’t realize they are something that seem to be the thing sent for memorials. I received several, and contemplate their message as they turn to the light.

Working off an iPad for the first time can be a challenge unto itself. Bear with me as I test it as I prepare to travel to Mexico next month with this iPad and my iPhone (that I’ve never been able to use for posting to WordPress successfully).

Have a visit with others in the challenge at Lens and Pens by Sally. Figuring out how to add a link here is next on the learning curve.
A resting place
under leafy boughs
a gift that awaits
for summer days
