Hanging Laundry Outside: Mexican Retirement Meditation

It’s always sunny in Mexico. This means that I don’t need a dryer. I really enjoy hanging my clothes out on the line. I hear the birds, say hello to my neighbors (I don’t live behind a large wall), feel the heat of the sun on my body and sometimes want to slink back into the shade. When I come inside, I can hardly see because my pupils have closed down as far as possible to block out the blazing light. It makes laundry a whole different animal in Mexico than it was up in the Pacific Northwest where it was almost always rainy — or misty — or drizzly — or just plain soggy. Laundry is a sensory experience now that I live in Mexico. It’s not always convenient, particularily during the rainy season, but it’s enriching.
