It’s been a brutal winter for many of us. Cold and snowy, icy and slippery. As I write this post, heavy wet snowflakes, though delightful and beautiful, descend upon my area of the world. Forecasters predict it will snow until tomorrow with accumulations of up to one foot of the hard-to-shovel white stuff.
I’m not a hot weather person, as many people are. I tend to stay out of the sun, a fear of wrinkles since I’m now over 30. However, it’s been such a harsh winter, I’ve been dreaming of sunny days, vivid colors, the salty ocean. A margarita or a tortilla on the beach. It doesn’t matter because I am finding myself, like many other of our literary travelers, craving for that golden ball in the sky.
Maybe that’s why I chose our latest series of Mexico articles? Or perhaps it was the fact I had such a good time in Mexico when I visited there – the warm people who suffered through my terrible Spanish, the delicious street food that I never got sick from once, the colorful festiveness on every street corner.
Whatever the motivation, I’m happy to introduce our Mexican series, complete with three inspiring articles about Mexican literary travels and an interview with Peggy Stevens Falkenstein, Mexican travel writer.
Stay warm and explore your literary imagination in sunny Mexico!
