    Here I am near Sedona, Az.  Now I know why the rich guys come here!  This is nothing short of Spectacular!  Wow!  The red rock formations are a gift from god to all mankind, not just to the rich and priveledged.

  As I enjoyed this spectacular land my thought turned to the poor people of Tabasco and Chiapas in Mexico.  Many are fighting for their lives as I write this.  A terrible flood, the worst Disaster in Mexico's history says Felipe Calderone, has struck.  They are fighting the aftermath, food, water, diapers and basic human needs are not being met.

I heard Eduardo Sotelo, El Piolin Por La Manana has been working hard raising funds for the relief.  I can't help but admire him for his work for the Mexican people.  Sure, he enjoys the ratings that come with such good deeds, but I am sure his efforts come from the heart, he seemed to be a sincere guy when I met him, though not partial to this gringo.

I shared, along with my sadness for the people of Tabasco and Chiapas, a certain sadness for Eduardo.  From my point of view the poor guy is caught in the Hollywood work cycle, he can't leave his job to tour Arizona like I can.  What is all of that success and money for if you can't be happy or enjoy it?  I don't know if Eduardo enjoys all that he has but I would yearn for the freedom of adventure, to explore, to find those quiet places like the one Jon C. showed me, without all of the hollywood body guards and fan fare.  Each to his own.

Eduardo, you too, are in my prayers and I knelt down and said one for you and for the terrible suffering in Mexico, and for the Mexican government which in my point of view has failed its people through corruption and greed, and for all people in the world who suffer in what ever way, through physical isolation and hunger, or from manufactured isolation that money can create.
