Thanks @sk8pics. Istanbul is an amazing place!
I published a new blog post a few days ago. It's about our arrival, and adjustment to our new home in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. We're here for five months. Time to stop travelling for a bit.
I love your writing @alilou! And the house looks lovely (now that it's been decluttered)- very colorful and cheerful.
Thank you so much Belle. You made my day! We like our home in SMA now. I wish I'd taken before pictures, but I was so distressed all I could think about was making the space habitable.
You're amazing, ali, the way you work through things. I think your little home is very pretty now. Good for you for hanging in there. I look forward to more of your stay in San Miguel!
As ever, enjoying your continuing adventure.
Thanks @sk8pics. It's the old making lemonade from lemons thing I guess. Don was so clear about coming here that I couldn't question it. I think our home is quite livable now, and so far we have each found some excellent healers for our ailments. That may end up being the main reason we are here.
Thanks @skatesindreams. This move has been an interesting adventure so far that's for sure
I'm sorry that you didn't arrive in SMA before Toller Cranston's passing.
I understand that he made - and left - a lasting impression!
His final resting place is in the cemetery, there.
One of the first things we did in SMA was go to a showing of two Toller videos in one of the several charming tiny cinemas here. They showed one of Toller's grandiose 1970's made for TV spectaculars - the one about him being an astronaut and landing on another planet. It was giggle-worthy at times, being so dated. The Besiks were in it, and Ozzy Colson! It was followed by a locally made documentary that showed a lot of his gallery, garden, and house. It was poorly edited, but still interesting. The most interesting thing for me was his statement (paraphrasing) that his artistic style came to him fully formed when he was about six years old and never changed.
Everyone in town knows/knows about Toller!
That was "The Magic Planet".
After almost six years it's time for a new thread
