Face Change

I have changed my image. It used to be the Chinese symbol for conflict. I choose it because I was in the process of trying to learn Mandarin (and I will again when my life becomes less occupied with other concerns), and I felt that "conflict" seemed like an appropriate representation for the world. I found the image here.

My new image is of the macho raton of the güegüense. It is from an indigenous play written during the Spanish colony and it represents resistance against domination through wit and misinterpretation. The photograph is from a mural painted on a wall in Managua.
