In light of the news lately, one of my dear friends asked me, “What will you do if he follows through on his threat to close the border?” My answer? “Party on…after all, I’m on the fun side of the wall!”
This past year has felt both toxic and chaotic beyond the point of description. I am happy to see the winds of change blow 2018 on out the door. And as the cacophony of church bells peel outside my window near the Jardin in San Miguel de Allende marking the approach of 2019, I feel those winds also blowing in the promise of hope. As the old Chinese proverb goes, “When the winds of change blow, some build walls while others build windmills.”
I am eager for the change brought forth by a new year with a profound degree of hope that we will soon turn the corner toward a more respectful society, smarter use of our natural resources, and a more inclusive direction for our country; one that works not behind walls, but with a global vision.
May peace, happiness, abundance, and good health be with you in the coming year…

Beautiful fountain inside San Miguel’s biblioteca, or library.
Beautiful Mercado SANO (Sustainable, Artisanal, Natural, & Organic)
Organic SANO market used to only happen on Saturdays, but now 7 days a week,

This picture makes me laugh, as the two women have their noses buried in their phones as these characters walk by (or maybe they are faster than me, and they are already posting to instagram!)
This restaurant has a giant window open to the street, so you can watch what’s cooking.
“Mexico is the sh*t.” That’s a compliment, right?
Not exactly stealth…
“The Frankenbug” with California plates. Wonder if it drove down?
My brother Don’s Navion, just back in San Miguel’s RV park after a year through Guatemala and Honduras.
The three-dimensional door leading in to Fat Boy Grill and motorcycle museum.
Fat Boy’s Bar and Grill…great burgers!
But my favorite is still Andy’s Street Tacos. Best Tacos al Pastor I’ve ever tasted!
A four dollar dinner. Tacos al Pastor with cilantro and a sliver of pineapple, topped with a grilled green onion.
HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE JARDIN!
