Changes in life...changes in 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!

Hey everyone....I've been away a couple of weeks...went from Guatemala to Mexico...and once back into my home I've been busy with storm damage repairs, another buying trip for my gallery and now I am busy getting the gallery repainted before I set up for my show opening on December 1.  It's going to be a busy season here in Mexcio while I run Galeria Amiga, do fundraisers, buying trips and try to fit in yoga and exercise...oh yes, and see friends who come only for the winter season to excape the north.  So I may still be away a while more  before I get back to my writing times...I miss the writing prompts and reading all your wonderful poems...will try to peak in when I have a moment and look forward to having my quiet time back again once the season is over....happy writing my poem loving friends.
