Sin Nombre

Sometimes one gets reminded just how lucky they truly are. Actually, those reminders are more frequent and immediate in our everyday lives than one probably likes to admit, which is why we're so damn good at ignoring them and carrying on with our own little petty concerns and tribulations. Why deny ourselves anything but the full measure of self absorption that our own self involvement so adequately affords us?

That is why we will always need socially conscious and responsible art the likes of Sin Nombre (Without Name) to make us look in that mirror- and if we don't see our own reflections in the lives of others, at least give thanks we're not in their shoes...
