A shoutout for this link to one of my very favorite sites: nonduality.com which delivers a newsletter of spiritual insight to my desktop daily – Nondual Highlights (from issue #5167). Apparently one of the hotels has a cenote.
A few years ago we visited the newly opened Museo de Cacao near Tikul, Yucatan. I’m reminded of that delightful trip because I’ve stumbled on a blog written by an Aussie, a philosopher of science who fancies chocolate. (The museum can be enjoyed as part of the ruta de puuc bus trip, which departs from Merida; it’s in the same region as the pyramid at Uxmal, which is also included in that trip, I believe.)

Groundhog Day, February 2, has long been a favorite holiday of mine. I have especially enjoyed the movie of the same name annually, with Bill Murray. But now I recognize the date for what it was: a pathetic ploy to con myself into surviving another dreadful winter. Why live in place seriously devoid of sun when there is warmth enough to sleep with the windows open all winter just a few thousand miles to the south? (There’s a small pool in the backyard, although not big enough for the guest depicted above.)
Six more weeks of winter is mostly a lie. (*Many northerners also call the groundhog a woodchuck, thus ‘Chucky.)
