I’m Back…with Apologies and News!

This is what Baja Magic Lodge looked like 4 months ago… concrete and rebar.

Dear Readers, please forgive my temporary absence!

You know how they say when life gives you lemons make lemonade? Well, sometimes when life gives you an ambitious husband who decides to build an eight room private lodge on a remote island in Mexico in four months before your clients start arriving for the season you have to make… everything.

Shopping, decorating, driving stuff 800 miles, painting, cleaning…you get the idea. It was breaking my heart to put the blogging on hold but when you see the pictures I hope you’ll forgive. I had to help him make it happen.


This what Baja Magic Lodge looks like as of June, 2013. Open for business!

Meanwhile, my ideas for The Metaphysical Circus 2.0 have been percolating. More on that soon.

But for now, I have lots of news and book reviews in honor of the Clarion Workshop Reading Series at Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore in San Diego. Read on!

And although Baja Magic Lodge doesn’t have anything to do with writing YET, I’m thinking writers’ retreat one of these days… hmmm?

    Hmm. Photography, writing and building a lodge. Could all this be a precursor to “God and Mr. Gomez” on steroids?
