I apologize for not posting. First it was the call of the great outdoors and gardening. Gardening feeds my soul in a way nothing else does. It also helps me recover from the long Chicago winters which I am finding more and more difficult to endure. Next came a couple of really nasty emails about my teaching at the National Museum of Mexican Art. Both people felt I should not because I am not Mexican. These perplexed me.I wish I could also say that they did not bother me, that I have grown past caring, but it did. Lastly, I got a book deal! So I have been interviewing, writing, researching, and editing for 8-12 hours a day. This also shows that once you get out of the habit of doing something, it's tough to get back. However, I promise I will post more often as I have a lot to share and this blog is important to las puntadas del alma. You'd have to kill me if you didn't want me to support them. Happy creating! Life is full and good.
