  • Costa Rica - Guayabo sky map stone
    picnic lunch and drive up to the Guayabo National Monument The park is well known for its natural beauty and is the largest remnant of the indian civilization in Costa Rica The indians who lived here were called Huetares They lived in this area until the Spaniards came The park is deep in the forest about half way up the southern slope of Turrialba volcano The ancient indian city is just now beginning to be uncovered In 1975 it was estimated that only 3 of the complex had been uncovered The dominant feature of Guayabo National Monument is the central mound which is a mound buttressed with a round stone wall In all directions there are smaller mounds stone walkways streets and holding ponds for water In all areas of the park you can see stone carvings These stone carvings are random lines that wander all over the surface of the rocks There is one stone however that is quite different from the rest In 1975 this 1 1 2 foot diameter stone was located at the south or southeast side of the central mound imbedded in the stone walkway that surrounds the central mound On a trip to Guababo in 1994 I discovered that this area was now closed to the public and the stone had been removed A park ranger showed me the stone that was stored in a trailer on the park grounds He told me that a mould was to be made of is so that a copy could be place in the walkway where the original once rested Fig 1 Conception of the southern sky as it might have looked to residents of the country s largest pre Columbian city 500 years ago The central mound is on the right RETURN TO FIG 5 During this trip the first time I saw the stone I aimed my camera at it focused and decided not to take a picture because it really was not very impressive and it would be a waste of film After wandering around the park I later returned and looked down at the stone again After a moment it all came clear and I could not believe what I was seeing The image of the southern sky and this stone merged into one image in my head Naturally I took a picture many pictures and that same day worked in my makeshift darkroom so that I could compare the images with my star maps Fig 2 Photograph of the stone when it was used as a paving stone in the walkway that surrounds the central mound Before I reveal what I feel is the startling meaning of this stone I will first talk about other things that will make the meaning clearer Our galaxy in which we live is a flat disc shaped cloud of stars we live on the outer limits of this disc but within the central plain of the galactic disc When we look parallel or into this disc

  • Girl in the mountain - Cerros de Escazu, Costa Rica
    see her She is elusive and if the light is not just right you may not see her See Thirty days in the life of a mountain Look South to a high point where you will see a white cross called La Cruz de Alajuelita To the right or West you will see another high point with a radio transmission tower Look directly down from this tower and you will see an open pasture This open pasture area outlines the head of the girl with her face turned skyward and toward the cross To the right of her head and down you will see another clearing which forms her shoulder and upper arm Below her upper arm a country road winds up the mountainside which by a strange coincidence forms her outstretched forearm The road swerves exactly where her wrist should be The photograph shown below is a closeup of the area I have described The photograph has not been retouched in any way It is exactly what the camera sees If you have problems visualizing the figure refer to the photograph below which outline the principle figure lines Since we are viewing the drawing at an angle and the image is distorted from our point of view I wondered what she must look like from the air To get an idea I compressed the photograph horizontally 50 The result of this is shown below The photograph below reflects the distorted view I have increased the contrast of this photograph to bring out the figure To the right I used a graphic arts program to remove unwanted detail Removing detail makes the outline stand out I have not retouched this photgraph I have only applied a filter which removes detail Is this the work of the hand of man artistic

  • Poesía - Eros del Silencio
    espacio de asombros y enigmáticos gritos Me recuerdo extasiado en ese prodigio verde de sorprendidas flores y de hierbas febriles Esa primera estrella huyendo de la prisa y esa palabra última que pensé o que dije a una mujer que estaba en la hierba conmigo o que talvez soñé pero me da lo mismo Por eso creo que acaso aunque no la encontramos se quedó para siempre besando nuestro espíritu
