A Quick Update

In 2010, we moved back to the small town in Colorado that I never stopped missing while we lived in Mexico. Now I sometimes miss Mexico, but I wouldn't travel as freely as we did when we were there, camping out in remote areas and so forth.

I just went fishing around on Kelly’s hard drive (love networked computers!) and found a few recent photos: The wiring here is something else. Kelly took a whole series to try to understand what’s going on in our street. This critter blends perfectly into its surroundings. “Song is the voice of the heart,” says this […]

April 15, 2006 — I wandered around our yard, taking pictures for this article, and came upon baby bananas just emerging: We are in the tropics, but being at 5000 feet elevation means it’s rarely extremely hot. It isn’t known to freeze here. No wonder people say the Lake Chapala area, where we are, has […]

March 26, 2006 — For those of you who love photos, take a look at Kelly’s photos of Mexico that he has uploaded to flickr recently. One of my favorite parts  is a “street animation” he did last year in Guanajuato. It shows best as a slide show. As we drove into our town on […]
