A (Not So) Silent Night in Mexico

Please click on photos to read captions and enlarge pictures.

With the exception of the last photo, these were all photos taken on New Year’s Eve at my house. What started out to be a silent night turned rather loud once the fireworks started and every dog in town started to bark, but at least did serve to illustrate the brightness in the song.

The last photo of Santiago tucked into bed with the stuffed dog I got him in the States
was taken by his dad a few days ago. He is Yolanda’s grandson. I’ve been staying away because
of the corona virus, but I have held him twice–both times right after I had a covid test so I knew
it was safe.

Happy New Year everyone!!!

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.

      Thanks, Sam. Happy New Year. After staying home last night, I’m heading out for a New Year brunch with a friend in a garden restaurant. We’re hoping everyone else will be sleeping off last night.

        Oh I was going to go outside an shoot some old fire works, started watching a movie and next thing I knew I had dozed off and it was 12:30 – terrible thing being an old man but I sat up through a lot in past year~?

    Happy new year to you too, Judy. Dan and Rhonda reported that hundreds of workers at the resort project were sick, so we postponed our departure for a couple of weeks. So we’re headed to a Santa Cruz beach with a picnic instead. Having “high” hopes for 2022! Love, Laurie and Dan
