Mr Gallegos

I don't know how many times I've stopped on my way to the Big Bend to buy tamales from him over the last thirty-five years. The Comanche Tortilliaria in Fort Stockton. And had him let me in early in the morning to buy them, just coming out of the steamer- even before his workers had arrived. A dozen to go and a dozen to eat sitting on the sidewalk in front of his shop while the sun came up!

He gave me a key chain i carried until i lost it, very regretfully. I will Never forget what it said

   You can make it, If you try!

He matters.

Why do we?

build with such straight lines when everything in nature, including our bodies, is so full of curves?
