I first journeyed to Los Cabos – San Lucas and San Jose in 1984. It was deserted, its unique beauty of desert meets the ocean creating a stunning, magical landscape. I recently returned to find that it has been discovered, filled with tourists enjoying the rare splendor. I returned recently to spent the day with a friend in Lover’s Beach, Playa de los Enamorados. It was a beautiful day of exploring and photo-taking. My husband and I first visited this beach immediately after I produced The Groundlings entry into the 1984 Olympic Arts Festival, Olympic Trials: A Chick Hazard Mystery, an improvised murder starring the incomparable Phil Hartman. We were bone tired and Baja replenished our soul. We stayed at The Twin Dolphins which alas no longer exists. We spent most of a magical day at Lovers’ Beach alone. Later we were joined by Sam Elliott and Katherine Ross on their honeymoon in Los Cabos. There was plenty of room on the beach for two sets of lovers.
Ventana al Pacifico
Window to the Pacific
The fishing guide attempts to hold the tiny boat steady in the rough waters of the Sea of Cortez. We are dangerously close to the spot where the Sea of Cortez waters crashes into the Pacific. It’s rocky. We are looking through a mystical cave that opens on a vast ocean that continues for 6,000 miles before colliding with the continent of Asia.
The light is going crazy — strobing while I attempt a rocky snapshot.
I start to stand. I am unsteady. Mi amigo Hector grabs hold and pulls me back.
Unsettled and a bit frightened, I decided to create art that expresses emotion, not reality.
Reality can be scary.
Emotion opens the heart.
