Mi Madre, Abril 23, 1922 - Nov 25, 2007

Una vez más llegan a la mente su voz, su mirada bondadosa y el rostro que heredamos.
Hoy más que nunca llegan a la mente sus palabras, la memoria de su ejemplo sin igual y tantas otras cosas que se rehusan a perder brillo en estos tiempos que hoy vivimos.

Newcomers to San Francisco, (Laura and Sahara 1984-85)

This beautiful picture brings back some amazing memories from an almost magical time. The first pad on Fulton and Diviss, the discovery of a wonderful city and the new life we all embarked upon.

Beto Borja, September 26th 1997

Twenty years have gone by since that morning in Cali where I saw my younger brother alive for the last time. Twenty years which have been enough to fill another lifetime and we must continue to fulfil the mandate of our tasks: to work, to love, to live. And to remember those we carry in our blood, to honour their memory.
My baby brother remains -as it must be in photographs- distant, frozen in time, the downcast gaze fixed forever on this portrait. His spirit still resides in my soul.
