Jan, these are so gorgeous. Are they pomegranates? Whatever they are they look juicy and inviting and magical. I love the title too. I know I'm probably totally making this up, but, if they are pomegranates then they make me think of Persephone and how just eating a few seeds made her return again and again to the underworld...paired with the title "Sin Nombre" fits right in with that, well, because of "sin" but also the loss of surface identity, of naming when we each enter into the underworld, whether internal or external. Maybe they're tomatoes...I don't know They certainly took me on a little journey and I love that. Thank you.

Yes, Pomegranates. Thank you for your appreciation and the Persephone story of her seed sins and trips to the underworld (on the river Styx?). I am not up on my mythology.
My favorite road/lane in Santa Fe is Calle sin Nombre.....it takes off where East Alameda ends and Canyon Road turns into Upper Canyon Road. Sin has been taking me on a journey Wishing Michael a Happy Birthday on Monday..
