It was a rewarding week of teaching photography at Rancho La Puerta in Tecate, Mexico. Kathy and I started the week with my “Nature as Art” slide show accompanied by Tom Barabas live on the Piano. Morning classes covered “Camera Basics”, “The Art of Seeing”, and “Understanding Light” and evening walks were timed for sunset when the grounds and paths were lit with lights. We met several interesting and inspiring people, including Life Coach, Richard Leider – Even rubbed shoulders with California Governor, Jerry Brown. While I was teaching classes, in-the-field sessions, and private tutoring sessions, Kathy dedicated herself to Yoga and fitness classes, connecting with people, and helping me whenever needed. After a week at Rancho La Puerta, nurturing our minds, bodies and spirits, we both felt refreshed, renewed and energized.
