About

I am an artist by profession. I started writing poetry almost five years ago, and I am enjoying it… I still have so much to learn. I write how I see the world from my point of view. I live in Mexico and teach English. It’s a great job, quite rewarding. This is a wonderful country, full of interesting culture, places to go, and things to do. I love the people and the food!

  1. Hi Pamela
    Glad you are still here. I loved the Mexican coffee. Wish I could smell some right now!

  2. Beautiful poetry, Pamela, I enjoy it very much. You mentioned once a poetry forum to show my poetry. Can you please give me the URL? Thank you.

  3. Hi, Erika, my goodness there are so many…most sites have prompts, but you do not have to write them. Though it is suggested. Here are a few I prefer:

    http://margoroby.wordpress.com/
    Margo has a new prompt every Tuesday, and she is very knowledgeable about poetry. A very nice woman. A small group of us participate there.

    http://wewritepoems.wordpress.com/
    Neil and Irene run this site. They offer prompts on Thursday and you have until Wednesday to post. Though, you can post anytime thereafter…
    And one of my favourites is:

    http://sundaywhirl.wordpress.com/
    My reason for this being my favourite is we are given a dozen words to work with, to try and write a poem. It is a bit like a puzzle for me and I find it challenging.

    But, there so many more out there, if you go to Margo’s site, you will see she has a post every Friday with the different sites. She calls it “the Friday roundup”. It is a good source if you’re looking for something in particular, I hope this was helpful. 🙂

  8. I am so sorry too, I just read your December 31 comment, feel free to contact me at mbahl69@gmail.com as well!

  9. I had family in Long Island, Queens and Brooklyn. Maybe the same month? Small world.

    Thanks for being a teacher – I did that many moons ago for pre-school. Then had my own two… now a grandson.

  10. Long Island is really nice. I have great memories from living there.

  11. good to discover your blog

  12. Oh, there you are Pamela. I went to your old site to see how you were doin’, lo and behold you are now a member of the wordpress gang. Wooo Hooo. Regards, Donald

  13. Hi Amigo! ¿Como estado? I love wordpress. How’s the writing going? I don’t get to wwp much lately, too busy with work. Vacation time in two weeks-woo hoo!

  14. Glad to have found you back, Pamela.

  15. Hi nino, I just saw this now. It is great to see you again.

    I have dreamed of living in Mexico. Can you really make a living teaching English there?

  17. mmt, I have been doing it for eleven years now. We have been in Puebla for five years, and this city is growing, Audi is building a plant here, and VW already keeps many employed. There are lots of people with more than average incomes. I suppose to answer your question, it depends on what you consider “making a living”. I work out of my home and teach university students and young professionals. My classes are a maximum of three people. I love the freedom of being my own boss, and the money is pretty good also. Besides, my husband and I are totally in love with this culture, wouldn’t trade it for the world.

  18. Many seem to agree with your view of Mexico. Nice that you enjoy your place and bring such a lovely sense of it in your poetry.

  19. What took you to Mexico to live? I sometimes think of moving to a new place when I retire. I long to really shake it up and move to another country, but I’m afraid I would miss my friends, and it doesn’t seem as easy to make real friends when we are older. Yes, lots of social opportunity, but true, blue friends, not as much. Any thoughts for me?
