Some people want to see different parts of the world. But traveling is costly. Sometimes we just pay the bills and stay home.
But we can walk around nearby and see and hear things. Today Michelle and I walked around the neighborhood.
We talked about ways to save money.
“What do you do with those slivers of soap that are left?” I asked. “I have slivers of white, pink and green. What would happen if I put them in the microwave?”
“When it gets down to the little,” (wonderful phrase!) Michelle said, there are many ways to make do. She said her mother takes slivers of soap and puts them in water until they’re liquified, then puts that liquid into empty liquid hand soap containers. The substance isn’t just right but it works.
Before we got back home we took phone pictures of an old beige building with a black wrought iron balcony that reminded me of Mexico. Those elegant simple arid but inviting intriguing mysterious places with balconies I’ve seen in pictures of Mexico.
A heart can ache not being on a balcony in Mexico. It can hurt not to look out at the night while a soft breeze and an acoustic guitar lull me faraway. Maybe someday.
