El Mundo, Hecho

I recently finished this marvelous book. It's nonfiction and kind of Jungian, but it's also a meditation on the value of art for societal change and social justice. We'll see if it influences anything about my photography or writing, but regardless, it was a joy to read.

 

In particular I appreciated its acknowledgement of the role of serendipity in art. I walked into this cafe thinking I should take a photo of this library book before I returned it, and here was an auspicious table on which to photograph!
