I am obviously not in Mexico. My aged mama needed me. For the time being I must manage her affairs, affairs that primarily involve the family farm up on this windy ridgeline where I am staying now. It has required an immense amount of work to make it habitable again, as I define “habitable.” This has kept me busy. If I had brothers or sisters or both, I would shuffle all of this off onto their shoulders and be gone in an instant. On the other hand and based upon my observations of other families through the years, siblings bring more problems than they are worth. So my situation is as it ought to be. I shall rewrite “About the Blog” shortly. In the meantime the photos posted here will portray various aspects of this somewhat remote place as those few I have posted over the past few months do.
