esperanza

Hope is what makes us shiver and long to be with others.

An almost incongruous applique on a woman's dress, created in commemoration for the women (around 400) who have been murdered -- and whose murders remain unsolved -- around Juarez, Mexico.

The exhibit is traveling the U.S. -- many are hanging here on display at Stanford University, where I've been hanging out for the last few days at a conference.

There's a book out about this titled The Killing Fields: Harvest of Women by Diana Washington Valdez. www.borders.com has it, and www.harvestofwomen.com
