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.

    I agree that people are basically the same everywhere. Kip and I always imagine ourselves living in the towns we travel through. I’m still enjoying the road trips because there is so much I haven’t seen before.
