putting on my thinking cap

I used to write all sorts of helpful and informative blogs about being a newbie to Merida.   Things to help with the day to day trials of living in a foreign culture, dealing with life’s little hiccups, and circumnavigating the endless reams of process and paperwork required for even the most mundane task.

I haven’t done that in a while.

I then moved in to my everyday life kind of stuff, shopping, cooking, exotic new fruits and veggies.

Then my activities, theatre, animal rescue, helping with a group home for girls, just whatever you get involved in when you live somewhere.

We’ve been here 8 years now, I feel like I’ve run out of interesting stuff to say.  I’m not prosaic, I don’t weave fanciful stories, I’m not a particularly deep thinker…

I also find myself doing more with facebook, which disturbs me, but it is what it is.  Now also, and because of that, I think in shorter more concise little soundbites.  Stuff I think is too short for a blog post.

But then I remember a few years ago, a blogger who no longer blogs used to post little short bits, a foto, a few words, just a little view in to his inner sanctum.  I liked those posts

About Debi in Merida

I moved from Colorado Springs, Colorado USA to Merida, Yucatan, MX in January 2006. I love to read, garden, travel, and hang out with friends.

    Please do Debi, It’s always good to hear your observations. And tell Marjorie about Beth Knepp. Who knows where to shop better than she does.

    The joy of blogging is that our subject matter changes as our lives do. Try the short blurb method. You might like it.

    As someone who has yet to move to Yucatan (waiting for Semarnat!) I like your how-to articles. Does any one know of a “shopper for hire”? I am going to need someone who really knows Mérida stores to help me get all the stuff we need to furnish our soon-to-be finished house and get the stuff to the beach.

  5. You could certainly do that. I encourage you. And I think you are a deep thinker.

    I think we moved to Mexico about the same time as you – and I share your condition regarding writing Blog entries – probably time to move on….
