Guess What? I know nothing about Mexican Folk art or this handsome fellow. I only know, he lives with me, and keeps me company in my temporary lodgings. He performs in the early morning between 3:00 am and 3:23 am. It's something I have been exposed to before, however, have never studied, or learned much about it. I would like to, and probably will now that I am here. I'm sure it's a fascinating subject. I have seen this sort of dress at festivals .. years ago in Mexico city. I remember them dancing in a circle, lots of fire works and of course, music! Very quiet day today. I think I needed it. My mind was a little boggled last night and I was cranky. Usually a sign I need to take a breather. I didn't budge out of bed until 2:00 pm!!! Oh, I was awake. Calculating budget for the house, what I would need to purchase. Answered e-mails. Wrote e-mails. Talked on the phone. Finally at 2:00 I felt like moving. It was a glorious day. Clear blue sky onward and upward forever. I took a lovely walk. Down to the Jardin. Spent an hour of so having a "Limonada" in an outdoor cafe people watching. Eye Candy was available today. Mexican policeman riding his horse .... hmmmm. I walked the long way home. Stopped for some fresh avocados and mangoes. Yum. Tomorrow I am going to Delores (the ceramic and tile city) with people whom I have never met. Last week I put a note on one of the popular San Miguel sites asking for advice on where to look for old doors. Consequently, I was invited to go to Delores with a couple who are taking their father in law there for the day, will be going to the factory shops and are stopping at a wonderful place outside Delores who stocks old doors! What could be better! This place is amazing. So, tomorrow I will be going on a little adventure. I'm still tired tonight. It's early to bed, and up early in the morning. I will report on my excursion tomorrow.

Let me say, there was a time in my life, not that long ago, when the quote below scared me spitless! Only now, am I beginning to 'get it'.
