Then they hung it over the fence, the snake twirling
around to every side like
a fish without water.

Then all of a sudden it stayed motionless.

Everything returned back to normal
we had a great evening.

This blog will feature work by and about the young participants in the Borderland Youth Documentary Arts Project. The project's mission is to use creative mediums such as photography and creative writing as ways to add the personal, familial and cultural stories and perspectives of young people from the Texas/Mexico borderland in order to enrich and broaden the understanding of the area.
