Suffering for Their Art

The crowd at the bi-monthly reading on the Nueva Posada terrace was about 1/3 the usual number of readers and listeners.  The wind off the lake didn’t help to mitigate the already cold weather, and as the reading progressed, there were fewer and fewer listeners and less and less to see of the ones who remained.  I was the last to read, and although the comments were positive, they were few and far between. What was first and foremost on everyone’s mind was to go into the restaurant for a warm meal. And you thought Mexico was always warm???

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.

    Last week we enjoyed unseasonably mild weather, with temps above freezing day after day. It felt like March, compared to the -40 we often get between Christmas and New Year’s. So maybe El Nino puffed the chilly your way. 🙂
