poetic license

The venue

The audience

The book signing
It was a successful outing for the author of The Reach of Roots and Seeds. Peggy Purcell's fans were out en mass to applaud her latest work. She started things off on a humorous note:
"People ask me if I miss my children since I moved to Mexico/ I tell them no/I would have missed them more/had I seen them more before! " This struck a note with many ex-pats here, mostly women of a certain age who are self-exiled from ex-husbands and grown children and their old lives. San Miguel de Allende is to aging females as Key West and Palm Springs are to aging males.
For a truncated intro and reading
