Mexican Festivities

There is a festival/celebration/holiday/fiesta/parade or some other kind of excitement happening in San Miguel de Allende almost every weekend, and often during the middle of the week.

Change for the Better?

San Miguel de Allende is different from any other place I’ve lived. Of course, that can be said about all cities. Through the years I’ve been aware of the energy or heartbeat of towns, even if they are neighbors.

What Does That Song Mean?

I’m a whistler and a shower singer, so I’ve been interested in the idea that whatever you sing probably has something to do with what’s going on in your life. That may be true, but sometimes I find it hard to correlate my music selections with my desires/wishes/traumas/happenings going on in my life at that… Continue reading What Does That Song Mean?

It’s All in the Beat
