About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      Thanks, Janet. I had to do it so fast because my battery backup was running out of power. Didn’t even have time to check it. Forgottenman found my typo and corrected it.

        You have no idea how many times he’s helped me. Did you read the post where I described how he found my camera stolen in Ajijic Mexico–from Missouri, where he lives? It was amazing. And he’s the one who found the article where my stats were compared to Donald Trump’s and also a critique of one of my poems in a New Delhi Sunday Newspaper Supplement. He’s amazing. Not to mention catching all of my unclosed parentheses and it’s its errors. Some good Karma was happening the day I met him online.

      I’ve looked and looked for it. In an email on April 26, 2016 I mention posting it, but can’t find it. Sheesh. I’ve put forgottenman on the recovery detail. If he can’t find it, no one can.

        Wow! Once again your okcman has come through for you! Thank you both for hunting and for finding this post That’s an amazing story — and how wise the lady was who removed the cards from the camera!
        As to my name — I started this blog on Xanga shortly after I had retired from Sallie Mae (Wall Street call letters SLM), and slmret was a good way of making it anonymously mine. It didn’t take too long for me to be a bit more open and use my first name on line as well, but the slmret moniker has stuck. I do understand about not being able to differentiate between ‘l’ and ‘i’ — I have the same problem quite often these days!

        So luckily back when I didn’t know your first name, you didn’t even notice I was calling you simret??? Ha!! When okcfm skyped me that “It is slmret, not simret.” I teased him that he’d typed the same think twice–exactly as I’d spelled it! It took a lot of convincing that he hadn’t.

        I didn’t notice — but you would have had a hard time finding me with it spelled the wrong way! It just added to the anonymity — lol ! I’m glad, though, that okcfm’s eyes are better than yours or mine, and that you now know the rest of that story!!

        Well, you were favorited so I never had to type the URL–just use it in comments. Or replies. I think I asked you fairly early on what your name was, though.
