I enjoyed walking through the arts and crafts village of Tlaquepaque (pronounced Tla-keh-pah-keh). Built in the 1970s after a Mexican village, the word means "the best of everything." There are some 40 shops and restaurants to explore. I had lunch at the Secret Garden Cafe--an amazing garden burger like none I've ever had. Delicious! I met a man there who said he had "flown up from Phoenix" to have lunch there. Made me laugh...probably took him as long to fly as it took me to drive...although it would have ben a beautiful day to fly.
As I was driving from photo op to photo op, eyes wide open to all there was to see, my mind was busy running through graduation talk topics. Yes, the seniors have asked me to speak for their graduation. I am beyond honored to have been asked. I've spoken for graduations before, so it shouldn't be a big deal. Only it is. I've literally given hours and hours of thought to what I would speak about and have yet to land on the perfect thing. All this pre-writing, though, it's been good for me. Just hope it turns into something written soon!
