Postcards From Lake Atitlán

9th March, 2016

“To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.” ~ James Thurber, from The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

In mid-January, when winter was at its dreariest, Jamie and I gladly accepted an invitation to spend a few days traveling around Guatemala, getting to know its beautiful highlands and the indigenous Mayan women who have been weaving textiles there for centuries. It was an adventure of friendship, of epic natural beauty, and of heartfelt female empowerment.

These are but a few mementos of our quiet, happy, and richly-inspired moments spent encircling Guatemala’s volcano-rimmed Lake Atitlán.
