Slowly discovering San Antonio's secrets. The sly summer sun dresses everyone in slow smiles, this discretely magical place unveils itself slowly, it wants to be discovered not devoured.

Layer upon layer is revealed, depth hidden behind tradition. In the shadows of abandoned cars, the sparkle of wisdom's eyes, radiated from hearts which shine through the shadows strewn behind heat packing pockets.

Simplicity and community are key here, ask and it shall be given, shine and supportive waves will wash over you, goldfish grow grandly with room to stretch and explore, courage not competition.

Family expands beyond blood, language expands beyond words, old values aid new growth breathing new breath into the beyond.
