  1. Verónica,

    My name is stephen and I am an artist living with my family in Bellevue, WA. I’m interested in viewing the film entitled Monstruo. Can you tell me is this something that will be coming to an indie theater in Seattle or is there a DVD distributor that I can purchase the movie?

    I also see that you are currently Seattle based as I am always looking to meet other creative types. If you would ever like to grab a coffee, let me know my treat! 🙂 I usually go to Zeitgeist Coffee in Pioneer a few mornings a week. My background (in addition to street-photograhy) is short fiction/poetry (currently working on a memoir) and attended the MFA program at San Diego State University for short fiction/poetry.

    Take care,


  2. I recommend Tashkurgan, if you can get there. 3,000 people (mostly ethnic Tajik) and more goats than people. Take a translator if you don’t speak Mandarin or Uyghur. Nice people.

    My cat died last night, so I was out in the rain, despite an elbow injury, digging a hole for him. I dug til I hit the yellow sand I knew I would find– my cat was a beautiful yellow/gold, and it seemed appropriate to make the last bit of effort on his behalf.

    I wish you great success in your endeavors. If our paths cross, I’ll buy you a glass of cava or prosecco or champagne, as you wish. (See last words of John Maynard Keynes as to why).

    All Best,
