A coconut treat on the street – Mexico


Chop off the top. Pour the coconut water into a plastic bag for the buyer to drink. Scoop out the coconut. Sprinkle on some chili, And a squirt of lime. Enjoy!   http://www.darlenejonesauthor.com Original link

Parking in Mexico


  Found this fellow parked on the street in town the other day. When I approached he pulled back abruptly. His owner, a little old lady, told me that he only liked her, no one else. I’m guessing that these two have been together for years. The owner changed from a baseball cap to the hat you see on the saddle, before mounting and riding away with her bags of groceries hanging from the saddle horn.   http://www.darlenejonesauthor.com                                 Original link

Fond of a font


The publishing industry professionals are up in arms. Well not all of them, but the traditionalists are. There I go tainting a swathe of friends unfairly. Let’s start again. A year ago at a writers’ retreat in Greece (Limnisa.com) I launched my imagination into space. LL-Publications, who publishes my ARIA Trilogy and INCREMENTAL short story collection, said, ‘Nelder, we want a science fiction novella – a series.’ I admit that the scifi story in me bursting to get out is a trope: crashlanded spaceship lands on a barely inhabitable planet and need to survive / check possibility of human settlement / watch for nasties. Where it is different is that the natives are a million years ahead of Eart...

Little Fires Everywhere – Celeste Ng

Little Fires Everywhere by [Ng, Celeste]
I cannot get this story out of my head. The intricacies of the characters’ relationships, the depth of emotion, the shattering of lives left me with an urge to dive into the novel and sort everyone out. If you’d just mind your own business, I screamed in my head, If you only knew. A vivid depiction of the importance of knowing the facts before acting and then asking yourself, “Is this any of my business?” Blurb In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned – from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding ...

Dia de la Revolucion — Mexico Independence Day


Mexico’s Revolution Day (Dia de la Revolucion) is a national public holiday that celebrates a 10-year revolution that began in 1910 to end the struggle against dictator José de la Cruz Porfirio Diaz Mori. Our town celebrates with a grand parade comprised mostly of the children — school groups, dance groups, sports groups — with a few cowboys and their horses thrown in. After all this isn’t just a beach town. It’s also ranch country. Here are some little revolutionaries.                                             And their ammo.                         More revolutionaries.                                         http://www.darlenejonesauthor.com Original link
