Let me know what you thought!
My life now is simple,i go about without makeup( no need for it), don't put on layer upon layer of winter clothing. The food is so fresh and natural..etc,etc.For the first time i can say that i am living whereas before i was simply existing.
I will be visiting SMA in a couple weeks. Is there a chance to get together over coffee to talk about life/moving to SMA?
I loved your film. As soon as I watched it, I wanted to write you a long letter about how it made me feel but it seems that my job has gotten in the way. . . I know that you understand. Since seeing the film and planning my move, I have struggled with just not walking out the door at work--and that is so not me. Any way, I just wanted to let you know how wonderful your film is and I will figure out how I got the information and write you a longer letter. Thank you so much for making me excited about the future again!
Like many other boomers, I feel it is time for me now. I feel that if we don't make the move now, we'll get too old and just settle in like our friends.
We’ll be moving away from six grandchildren. For years, I have hosted all holiday dinners and celebrations from Easter to Christmas. After cooking and cleaning, I am left with a pile of dishes and more cleaning the next day.
We want a simpler life now. We are going to try to slow down and enjoy every moment. Thank you for your film that really spoke to us.
I am from Birmingham, AL. And I am a recent widow. But to make a long story short, my brother has been visiting San Miguel de Allende for the last 27 years. I have visited 4 times, and FELL IN LOVE WITH SAN MIGUEL, the very first time I was there. My brother was there for the month of March and found out about your Documentary and has bought one. I saw it and cried ALL THE WAY thru it. It was so PERFECT and it related my feelings fully. I had always told my husband that we were going to retire there, but my husband passed away at the age of 61. But, I have not given up my dream of going to San Miguel for at least 6 months of the year. My son is having a fit, but I KNOW that is the only place I will find myself again. I have told my family it is the only place I will be able to find peace on my heart!!!!! THE VERY MOMENT I get off the plane in Leon, I feel San Miguel gathering me up in a "soft peaceful blanket" and calling me to "come on home to where I belong."
I hope this does not sound real silly. It is just how I feel. I feel safer in San Miguel than I do here. I have read many, many books on retiring to San Miguel and know there are other widows or single women living there and doing fine. I know a few people there already and would like to volenteer and in some of the things that "expats" do there. I am also sort of an "artist".
Well this old southern woman did not make this short, did?!?!? When I do get down there I would hope we could met and talk a little.
THANK YOU FOR GETTING OTHERS AND YOURSELF TO PUT INTO WORDS WHAT SAN MIGUEL DE ALLENDE MEANS TO THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
