Here is my idea of peaceful sleep: my head in someone’s lap, feeling secure and safe, and not a worry to keep me awake. My doglets, Radar and Sergio, have their sleep perfected. Radar is the one at the top, and Sergio is the larger one.

When I get a phone call or an email or a text or a knock on the door, I am motivated to answer immediately. Actually, I’m more than motivated, something inside me says I am required to drop… Continue reading Instant Needs

It’s been a week of celebrations in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. And in San Miguel, a celebration always includes parades, fireworks, crowds, color, and family gatherings.
