Image of the Day
Normally my images of the day (which come more like once or twice a month) are aesthetically or thematically chosen, and quite arbitrary except to my own little investigations. But I haven't been touching current events or political matters in recent weeks, and the floods in Tabasco are awful, and I saw this one image from BBC online and felt oddly moved by it, not only as a 'representation of humanity' but as a picture in general. I hope that my choosing this does not communicate to readers a cheapening of the situation, or a consideration of our neighbors' crisis (which is being poorly handled by our government, natch) as a merely aesthetic or conveniently picturesque event.
