The combined effect of living above an inland lake surrounded by mountains and being 40 miles from Colima Volcano—one of the most active volcanoes in North America—makes for interesting weather during hurricane season. No wind, but our usually sunny mornings turn overcast and misty. The air is a bit cooler than usual, and when the volcanically-heated mineral springs empty into my pool and hot tub, it makes for some very atmospheric scenes. Pasiano was in the process of clipping and cleaning up, getting ready for the lush growth of the rainy season. Morrie, as usual, made his mark on the occasion. Who could have staged that? Who would want to? Hope you enjoy these scenes of my terrace, pool and garden.
