First of all, I have to explain that I live in a Mexican house with 20 ft. high domed ceilings and rooms that serve as perfect echo chambers. Also, that the plumeria tree is in bloom directly in front of my typing table and although it is beautiful, I am allergic to it. The result is that I’ve been letting out 4 or 5 tremendous sneezes per day that echo through the rooms and sometimes hurt my own ears. The climax came today when I sneezed and every dog in the neighborhood started barking–my two included!!!

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.

    Hahaha! Every once in a while I have sneezing fits — last time I was in Santa Barbara, my friend in the other room asked me what that noise was — he thought it was gunshots!! I can just imagine your triggering all the neighborhood dogs to bark!

      The brick and stonework here is amazing. This was all done by hand.. and it comes out perfect. I met someone who watched them make it and they told me the process. My living room/dining room is one huge dome and my bedroom another.
