I had the pleasure this week of being the guest blogger on C.M. Mayo's Blog, Madam Mayo. C.M. Mayo is a wonderful prose writer on Mexico (and other themes), as well as a captivating, poetic fiction writer (check out her novel: The Last Prince of the Mexican Empire--just the title makes you want to read it!!!). Her blog is multi-faceted and deals with travel, creative writing, books, literary translation, and even pugs!!! Asked by her to write about a theme connected to my new book of poems, The Park of Upside-Down Chairs, I chose to blog (briefly!!!:)) on five inspiring world museums that I have encountered over the years and which, somehow, fed into several of the poems in my book. Feel free to read this "musing" on museums, as well as the blog posts of the other writers and artists she's asked to contribute to her site. It makes for colorful, informative reading!
