This is about my life in Mexico. Come along as I write about my thoughts and impressions from day to day.
My small village boasted only three residential streets, crisscrossed by two side streets until the development of a palm orchard near the lagoon. It sits back from the shore where it was located until a Tsunami wave wiped it out in 1985. The town was engineered and rebuilt by the Red Cross.
This bit of land is a bar between the ocean and a Laguna which shelters some of the most amazing wildlife in Mexico.
Why do I love being there? Here are a few reasons.
I love the children kicking balls from house to house. I enjoy walking by the casas interspersed with little storefronts which might only sell sodas, onions and chips.
And I love how I am when I am there.
I don’t worry about purpose. I can read a book until I fall asleep and wake up any time of the day or evening and walk to the beach.
I have solitude when I want it but am not alone. Everyone greets me by name. If I’m not in a conversation I am still lulled by the constant sound of voices, or music, or the sound of waves, or…
If I am hungry I can go to the beach and order a small taco or a large fish. If I’m cooking and forgot to get peppers, I can walk a block to the little store, go to Carmen’s corner stand, or wait until the next day for the produce pick-up truck to go by.
Life is simple.
Life is good.
