Sunsets from my roof


Olive likes to hang out on my roof and watch the sunsets.

Weds. Market in Ajijic two weeks ago

I am falling down in my duties. I did not take any market photos last Wednesday. These are from two weeks ago.
I love this mask.
Ross is buying a necklace for his woman friend. Ross is a wonderful person!
Check out the road. They put flat bricks all down the middle of the road and it is so much safer and easier for walking.

Morning Thoughts, The Eternal vs. the Everyday

I have been trying to figure out how I managed to lower the pixels on Carlos' drawings so I could put one on with each of my Morning Thoughts but I have given that up for now. I am already having lots of internet problems that haven't been solved. So this post will be without a photo or drawing.

It is another Wednesday market day. The sky is dark and I am hoping it doesn't rain while I am grocery shopping. I will be glad when the rainy season is over. I don't like the humidity in the air. Otherwise, I am happy to be back to Mexico and settled into my daily routines.

I went to the spa yesterday and swam. It was wonderful to do that again. While I was riding the local bus out there I had one of those transcendent experiences. You know the kind. The ones that just flood over you with no warnings. It is when everything in your life is in place. There are no worries in the background. And all of a sudden you realize that you are exactly where you want to be and you become overwhelmed with the beauty of the place and filled with love for your life.

These kinds of experiences are to me like a gift from God or the universe or whatever you believe is in charge of our lives. They are our higher power's way of telling us that we are on the right track and doing the best that we can to make our personal lives worthwhile and happy. These experiences can't be forced or predicted. They are just gifts to enjoy. Whisperings from the universe that say, "Yes, life is worth living."

 Maybe this is the reason I could not get my ex husband's drawing on here today. It was done not long before his suicide. He had already decided that life wasn't worth living and his drawings reflect that. They are transcendent but they put no value on everyday life. Only the eternal mattered to him. I believe that the everyday is sacred. The eternal can wait until after I die.

After parade on the Ajijic Plaza

After the Parade photos

I thought the parade started at ten but it started at nine so I missed it. I got some nice photos after the parade.
This is the very end of the parade.
