My wife Melody and I are heading out for Mexico today—our 13th year at our favorite mini-resort, Petit Lafitte, situated about 6 miles north of Playa del Carmen, on the Caribbean side of the Yucatán peninsula.
But normally I spend my time reading and writing—the only extended stretch of creative time I seem to carve out every year. So our second week, for me, is a continuation; for Melody it’s a vacation from yoga and an exercise in her own reading.

Needless to say I seldom finish every book I take! And I don’t know if I’ll have the energy or inclination to post—the beach and bar take precedence—but if I can muster the concentration you may hear from me a time or two.
Hasta pronto y un fuerte abrazo…
