Mis Estimados
Compadres, Amigos y Compaņeros.

I am having two of the walls in my casita painted
with abstract art by Carlos Alcarza,,,
The walls are each about 12 ft. by 12 ft. ...
It is part of my flowering as a human being.
I no longer care about money - only beauty...
The beauty of art, the beauty of music, the beauty of form,
the beauty of architecture, the beauty of other people and the beauty of life...
I will take pictures of the walls when the paintings are done, next week, and
put them on this travelblog.....

The artist is a free style artist, so I will not know what the paintings will look like until he has done them.. However, I have given him some guidelines, which he has agreed to.
I want bright, loud, strong colors.. Yellows, reds, greens, blues maybe some purple.....
I do not want any recognizable figures in the paintings - maybe a little tiny human figure in a corner of the paintings, something that is not very noticeable in the painting.. I have noticed that he likes to do that in some of his paintings....
 . 
Someone recently told me that I had a strong personality....
I found that an interesting comment...
What did they mean by that....

I think of strong personalities as being dominant, domineering, assertive, aggressive...
I do not think that I am any of those things, I am just a nice guy........
However, I do not really give a shit about what anyone thinks of me anymore, and
I do not take shit from anyone anymore... Maybe that gives me the appearance of strength..... 

Also, I have seen people that appeared to have strong personalities crack under pressure or under a strain... I do not think that I would crack under pressure or a strain,
so in that sense I do think that I have a strong personality... a strong inner strength....
One person that I saw crack under stress, the same stress that I was under,
and which was not a serious stress - it was more like a major inconvenience or irritation
or annoyance  - I found very surprising, because it was so unexpected...
It was an indication of how fragile many people are inside of themselves...
I have wondered about that - it may have something to do with their appearances and how they want to appear to others and how they think that they appear to others and their expectations of and for themselves... Or it may have to do with their loss of control of what is happening to them - if they are not in control, they lose control, of themselves........ ...  .  
Their perception of themselves may depend on what they think
other people's perception of them is....

I think that I am starting to get bored doing this travelblog....
I have nothing new to say and the well is starting to run dry..

Although I am enjoying myself and having fun,
I am spending a lot of my time doing really boring stuff.
Doing boring stuff is like working.. I did not retire to do boring stuff....

I have made at least 8 to 10 trips to the Mexican Immigration office to establish my residency here in Mexico... The bureaucracy here in Mexico is a big joke in Gringo circles.....
Opening bank accounts here in Mexico is also another exercise in Mexican bureaucracy..
Opening a bank account with a bank here in Mexico usually takes 4 or 5 visits...
Bank bureaucrats are almost as bad as Government Bureaucrats.....
Registering for my Spanish classes - registering for Life Long Learning classes -
These are all things that take time and are boring...

I went to a meeting here in San Miguel that was put on by the Canadian Embassy,
for Canadians in Mexico..... It was 2 hours long, only 10 minutes involved giving me information that I wanted or needed - it was boring, borrrrring, booooooring.... really boring..
There was only about 100 Canadians at the meeting - it was very poorly advertised...
We were only given about 4 or 5 days notice about the meeting... I was surprised that I did not see one Canadian at the meeting that I knew..   Canadians are borrrring!!!!! 

Viva La Mexico
Adios Mis Compadres, Mis Amigos y Compaņeros.
