Today I am posting an e-mail comment that I received from a reader of my website who lives in Mexico. Here it is:
“I loved your website! Even I didn't know you had that many articles published, or that much knowledge! It's very informative and interesting! I'm so glad you finally got it running. I was just wondering... You have so much writing and Mexico history experience, why don't you come down here and associate yourself with some journalism organization or a magazine or something? I think you should be here in Mexico because that is what the heart of your writing is about, but I think you need to be here writing or with some organization. You see what I'm saying? I really enjoyed your blog also! The 11:11 thing is kind of freaky. I have noticed it more often ever since your book came out. And the link you have for the wanna-be president Lopez Obrador--we're all hoping he doesn't become the next president because he is a pretty shady character. Have you been following all the legal happenings with him? I'll keep checking back at your website for all the new additions!”
Thank you for your kind words, questions and comments. This is the kind of participation I look forward to. This is one way we can encourage dialogue and discourse.
- Lee Cuesta
- LEE CUESTA, a journalist who worked in Mexico City, has written about the complexities in Chiapas for a decade, acquiring firsthand experience in both Tuxtla Gutiérrez and San Cristóbal de Las Casas. As a fully bilingual writer, the author has been published in periodicals such as Northwest, Eternity, World Pulse, Indian Life, Interlit, Prisma, El Faro and Apuntes Pastorales. The articles receive international response. In addition, Cuesta is the author of the novel entitled Once: Once, about religious intolerance and an independence movement in Chiapas, along with a conspiracy to recapture territory that once belonged to Mexico. In it, he combines the skills of a storyteller and investigative reporter to penetrate the historical, social and spiritual dimensions of this convincing tale. It provides a rare and stunning glimpse into the elements that render neighboring cultures so incompatible.
