Why I Want to Live in Mexico
By Cary Griffith

Actually, it's about moving down
a notch or two, not just from first world
to third, but from a place where
digital time is plugged into the
national grid to a place where
clocks, if you have one, are still
wound by hand. Moving to
Mexico is about changing
skies; from wintry, gray, scudding clouds
to angled white Caribbean light.
South of this border they
speak a different language, the peso
has 1/10th the value of a dollar,
children play with toys carved
out of wood, and dreams are
still considered divine communication.
I'm hoping to recover the way,
some boyhood Summer days, I
kneeled beside streams and
watched water flow over rocks
for hours.
