Still Life with Quixote

In the most dangerous barrio in all of Central America, I sit quietly reading a graphic novel of Don Quixote.  Having worked so hard to get to this point, things are now running themselves--that wonderful precision point of tranquility for me.

A cool breeze fills the afternoon air, and a quiet oasis of peace is filled with kids laughing, dancing and singing.

Things feel so normal, one would never know of the war zone beyond the iron gates.

Such is my Quixote life.
