leon, nicaragua, another colonial town just up the road from granada has a lot of churches too. like this one.
for the third easter in a row i was on this trip around-the-world, so i celebrated my third semana santa in a very religious country. here is the beginning of a parade.
they carry floats depicting jesus and mary.
la catedral de leon, the cathedral of the lion.
you are about to see the evidence of a tormented mind. i took 1000 pictures of the lions in front of the cathedral but simply could not decide which was best, so i posted all of them. now what song lyrics can i put here to narrate? hmmmm. ah yes! i've got it! read the bizarre words of gordon downie, lead singer of The Tragically Hip

John Cage had come to feel
that art in our time
was far less important
than our daily lives,
to which so many’d become
more or less inclined.
The purpose of it’s not unique.
Not to build masterpieces
for a delectative elite
but simply to wake to your life.

If there’s a perpetual plan
for discovery days
where everyone can take part
in what he called
purposeless play
and there’s a sign of life in this play
not to get order from chaos
tell you how to create
but simply to wake to your life.
You’ll be serving the song
when we find out you won’t change
serving the song
bombing the range
This is Tiger the Lion

there’ll be no further use of
the two-way radio
