|The Virgin of El Charco del Ingenio, San Miguel de Allende, by Lisa JonesMoore, 2014|
On my last day of my magical trip to San Miguel de Allende in 2013, with the fabulous Rebecca Brooks, I decided to take a walk through El Charco del Ingenio, the gorgeous botanical gardens just outside of town. I was feeling travel-weary and over-stimulated, and needed to go to a place of natural beauty and quiet. Words cannot describe the utter beauty and stillness of this place. This humble image of the Virgin (and a foot) painted on a rock by the side of the path says it all: This Way, To the Virgin.
