Yes, I'm GLAD I'm a Woman, because we are ALLOWED to change our minds! Actually, all of you changed my mind.
I have been inundated with phone calls, emails, people stopping me on the street and, of course, the comments on the blog post about having nothing left to say. It has been an eye-opening experience.
I had no idea that the blog, or my writing, has had such an impact on so many. From the decisions to travel to San Miguel, move to San Miguel, move to Mexico, or to enjoy the antics of Matilda and Sebastian........it has all touched my heart.
A funny thing also happened in the ensuing days since I wrote that post. I saw something - it's the photo above of Bella, the Basset Hound laying in the middle of the sidewalk in the jardin. I snapped
the photo thinking, "Oh gosh, that is such a photo of what it is to "just be" in Mexico. And, then I
had a momentary mental pause when I realized that I was no longer going to be sharing these little
scenes with all of you.
The photo above says a lot. It's about the pace in Mexico. It's about the tolerance of others in Mexico. People walk around Bella and no one thinks any of it. It's about the serenity that Bella
feels safe enough to lay there, unless of course, someone happens to bring her a treat.
Yes, as all of you know I love Mexico. I love San Miguel and my life. And now, I'm grateful to
each of you for letting me know that the blog along with your coffee in the morning is how you start your day.
Here's another photo that I took of the fields of cosmos that were everywhere recently.
