We are taking a break for our own creative and spiritual renewal. For the next 10 days, we'll be traveling the seas of the Western Carribean, and also seeking out local religious art. We'll be in Haiti (above), Jamaica (below), and Mexico (below), and we'll give you a full report (more or less) upon our renewed return. We'll see you soon!
