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.

    Hi Judy,
    Thanks for sending this. I really enjoyed reading it and got a little nostalgic. Even though I only visited that one time last fall when Gina and I stayed in Ajijic for that week after our retreat, I liked being there and feeling like I could be a part of the bigger community when I came again in June and for a longer stay in November. Well, here it is June and my plans, like an entire planet of others, got waylaid. Sigh. I don’t know if you all have talked about it at all, but I doubt we’ll be traveling in November either. Sigh again.
    Oh and I meant to tell you earlier: my friend Jill Hall had a poem published in The Poeming Pigeon “Cosmos” issue and as I flipped through the pages of the copy she sent to me, I found you and your “Stars” poem. What a delightful surprise. You poem brought back memories of sleeping outside, sneaking out bedroom windows, babydoll pajamas and all that adolescent milkyway of emotions.
    Love always, reading what you’ve written, on your blog or otherwise.
