I am going into my 10th year in Mexico. I first came to Mexico in 1973 to San Miguel to study Spanish at the Instituto Allende. I have travel extensively all over Mexico to search for Mexican Folk Art, recently in Guatemala as well. Some have described my apartment as museum of Folk art and I have an extensive collection of Embroidered Traditional Blouses and Shawls. I have an extensive library of books on Mexican folk art. I also am a jewelry designer and I collect beads from all over the world.
I teach Psychology and Social Work online through a University in California and I am a psychiatric social worker.
Another passion is organic gardening. I took a year long class in Organic gardening and I have green house roof on my back patio and have plants on my roof as well. I have five crates of worms that are for compost and regularly make worm tea, liquid worm fertilizer. I go to the Saturday organic market weekly to get the veggies that I don’t have in my own garden.
I also enjoy swimming in the local Hotel Aldea pool and going to the hot springs at La Grueta.
