Zapotlanejo, Jalisco, Mexico
Poetry with Cyrus Cassells
Originally from the west coast of Canada, I’ve lived and worked in Italy, Uganda, China and Brazil, but Mexico is the home of my heart. I moved with my husband and sons to Jalisco ten years ago, where we raise milk goats, sheep, hens and cows, and foster street dogs and cats on our biodynamic farm. My BA is from the University of Calgary and my MA from Royal Roads Universitym in subjects unrelated to writing or farming, of course. In addition to being a student in the care of ruminants and soil regeneration, I also am a student of temazcales, languages, mysticism, horse therapies, my second novel and my second poetry chapbook.
