Beauty all Around

Last weekend as Beatriz and I left our apartment at about 11 AM we both stopped, looked at each other and both agreed that we were absolutely stunned by the nature of the air.
 I used to teach giving a definition of weather as "the nature or  condition of the air at any given time".  But this was a special beauty of summation of the senses... the feel of the breeze, the smell of the breeze, the speed of the moving air, the de facto temperature of the air in motion and the clouds focusing the sun bursts coming out between them, the humidity, the density... all intensified to give forth a Medellin "Ahhhh".  Beautiful.   It's almost like that most days, but last Saturday it was even more so.

The Children are Beautiful!


The women...

A guidebook written by a guy for guys says that Medellin women are not just attractive, they are even more attractive than that.  Skin deep.  I know all that but still I am amazed.  On campus, around the hospitals, on the streets, in the malls, first thing in the morning, last thing at night.  Lovely.  (I'm avoiding saying beautiful because we all know that that takes layers and layers of layers to establish.  But attractive?  Easy word to use.  Attraction ... F=ma=F. F-F=0)
