Changes in life...changes in attitude...now living a life in Mexico...opened a gallery, travel around a bit to find art for the gallery...  I have been a photographer almost my entire life so it's fun to have a place to show my fine art photography.  I've closed down my portrait studio back home and for the time right now, will continue to live most of the year here in Melaque then...go back to Bellingham, Washington state for visits and Canada sometimes too. 

Life after cancer for me meant do what you love.  And try to do what is right for those around you...your family and friends.  Poetry became a new vehicle for me...something I needed to do when family problems gave me release the turmoil.  

Now, I'm hooked.  I am loving that I found the Soup and all of you great poets out there to learn from.  Gracias!


Going to Guatemala

Blog Posted:9/18/2019 2:38:00 PM

I will be gone for the next couple of months, first with a trip to Guatemala for 6 weeks, studying Spanish and then back to Mexico, where I will immediately leave for a buying trip for my gallery..

 

So....I am not sure how much time I will be having to spend on Poetry Soup with contests etc...internet is not the best in Guatemala.  But I am sure I will have time to write most days and keep my poetry brain fresh.

 

I look forward to catching up when I get a good connection and will miss reaading all of your wondreful poems each day.

Jeanne
