The Three Marys

In the end, this is an invitation to travel. Why not stop in the road for a moment? Stop and look. You’ll find where there’s painting there is a roadside stand for flesh too… the color made into flesh, the flesh in the colors of the Mexican flag, the Mantle and the Tunic and again the Flesh. The Three Graces, the Three Marías, the three mountain peaks overlooking the valley of light, that last mirage of wonder and hopelessness. The final incarnation of the Virgin, that eagle-boy, that sly patron, will stir the coals in the fire for you one more time.
