When I am not running my bait shop in Southern Louisiana,
in my mind’s eye,
I can be found here,
San Miquel de Allende,
a beautiful colonial city in Southern Mexico.
Having visited there several times, I have had the luxury
of a few practice runs.
A day in my life there would include daily visits to the
mercado for fresh fruit and avocados,
and I’d be wearing my favorite San Miguel sandals -
which are perfect for walking the city’s cobblestone streets.
On my way there, I’d greet the store merchants who were sweeping
their front step.
All I would need are these
a few of these,
this skirt ,
and these earrings.
