Weekly challenge - "Mexico"

"A creative person has to create. It doesn't really matter what you create. If such a dancer wanted to go out and build the cactus gardens where he could, in Mexico, let him do that, but something that is creative has to go on."
Katherine Dunham

This week let's be inspired by that most colourful of countries - a land seeped in history, warmed by the sun blessed with beauty.

Right now I am obsessed with Mexican food and enjoying setting my tastebuds on fire.



Let's light our creativity and see what inspires you about this wonderful country.

Perhaps you will be thinking of golden sandy beaches and tropical holidays?

Might it be the bright colours that light your fire?


Will you be inspired by others?

Or taking a history lesson?


Will a seasonal tradition allow you time to think of departed loved ones?

Whatever creative outlet you decide to follow, I can't wait to see the results next Sunday. To enter, simply post a link to your creation in the comments to this post by 12pm EST then come back later to see all the entries showcased.
