Moments of Zen in Mexico

I've recently discovered a blog that has me fascinated. The writer of "Tales from Zapata Street" lives in Michoacan and shares his daily insights about life on his ranchito with "La Señora Guapa". His words and pictures are poetry, his calm and peaceful look at life make me sigh with pleasure. I've only just begun perusing his older posts, it's like a moment of Zen when I am able to sit down and read his lyrical musings. I am just starting to immerse myself in the photos of his beautiful ranchito and the surroundings filled with flowers, plants and wildlife. If you are looking for a positive slice of life blog from Mexico with a poetic flair, I highly recommend immersing yourself in "Tales from Zapata Street", it's a soul-pleasing read. Be sure to see his photo site as well, some lovely pictures to behold!


I was looking at Ranchito's pictures, and OMG!!! Im drooling here!!! Love it!!!

Isn't he just so ZEN? That is the PERFECT way to describe him! I found him earlier this year and while I haven't read in a while, I devoured his site for months. And the love for La Senora is palpable.

How you feeling? Did you get Dolly today (instead of yesterday)? She started about 24 hours late down here. :)

Momto3- Aren't they gorgeous? The ranch is just lovely, what a peaceful and joyful place.

Harvest- Ahh, he is perfect for relaxing. I'm doing ok, hanging in. We got the worst of the rain on Monday, after Dolly fled. Back to normal now, how about your gang?

Heather- Ooommmmmmmmm. Peace and love baby.

KW- Glad you liked the site, I think a lot of people will find something really poignant there.

Beth- Enjoy, he's a beautiful writer and yes, he lives in a fabulous place.

Paul- Hi and thanks for stopping in. I'm enjoying reading your blog as well, economics was my worst subject, lol, so it's nice to see you put things in a very simple way. I am very happy to have discovered both yourself and Zapata Street, great new reading!
