One of the blessings of living in San Diego is the close proximity to Mexico.
Despite the recent years of drug cartel strife, Mexico remains a vibrant, vital and soulful place.
Art, music, cuisine, writing...Mexico is a hotbed for all of it.
Our co-mingled histories are fraught with miscues and misunderstandings. I guess any meeting place of culture and identity will always be a combination of potential and danger. Maybe the best path is to celebrate the differences and enjoy. There is so much to gain and nothing to lose.
