About Me

My photo
I am second generation Californian with Apache and Yaqui ancestors. Yes I was born in them there hills of Los Angeles. The Yaqui were hard workers and while working on the railroads in the southwest traveled and sometimes lived on the trains with their families. Refugio Savala the Yaqui Poet lived this lifestyle and called himself a "Hobo" with humor. My Greatgrandfather and many of his family worked on the railroad also which afforded them many opportunities. This Blog is in honor of my Great Grandfather Reyes Torres.

Setaka or Neon Flower Power Everywhere

The Yaqui have a word for Flowers and the Power that come with them, feeling it is close to godliness "Seataka". When I went to the El Rey theatre I was hypnotized by their sign and it's beauty. I have a better one of a close up of the sign on my phone which I cannot download for the service is disconnected. The clothes are Prada SS2013 line which I am crazy about.
My Grandmother always had flowers growing in her backyard and her favorite being yellow Roses which I got two dozen for the holidays. "Setaka" and Happy New Year!

    "Dream is forbidden, nostalgia is forbidden, to be too sweet is not good. Everything we used to feel historically, now you can't enjoy. The clothes are the expression of this impossible dream." Miuccia Prada was in existential mode backstage tonight, talking about sentiment and feeling—both our yearnings for a more innocent state and the futility of those yearnings. No wonder there was a lot to unpack on the runway. The flowers, the pervasive Japonisme—here we had Prada embracing traditional tropes of femininity and womanhood, a geisha's servitude, even. And yet in her signature way, she couldn't help turning those notions inside out.
