Ideas Come When…

leave a comment »

My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living. -Anais Nin

Ideas come when you:

say yes more often.
get outside.
drink coffee.
are open to inspiration.
dream.
celebrate the ordinary.
love.
surround yourself with creatives.
are intentional.
live passionately.

Travel and Food Go Hand in Hand

with 2 comments

An exploration of my recent taco quest in Baja, where I was reminded that all it takes in life is good food, from good places with good people.

“…food in itself is a form of travel, letting us explore no matter if we’re in the country of the food’s origin or thousands of miles away.”

Via.

Friday Photo: Colors of Mexico

leave a comment »

In need of some color today, so went back to some Mexico photos from this fall. I visited right before Dia de los Muertos, and everywhere you looked there were decorations. These flags covered an entire alley, fluttering in the wind against a bright blue sky.

Friday Photo: Mexican Bike

Walk five minutes in the opposite direction of tequila tastings and persistent questioning, “Taxi? Mexican boyfriend?” and you’re immediately swept into everyday life of this city. The streets are narrow, the colors are faded by the sun and doors stay open as if welcoming you in to the heart of the families that call this place home. As you walk, you smile at everyone you cross. They return the gesture, an emanating warmth that you don’t get at home, particularly not in the dreary weather of late fall.

The lone bicycle stands propped against the wall. A basic addition to a colorful street. Its owner is no where to be found, but it’s not locked. Just sitting, waiting to be taken out for a spin.
