Recently the thought of re-decorating my world whether a new house in Mexico or a condo or apartment around Miami has been piquing my interest. I do not look forward to changing my life (or maybe I do) but some facets will be fun. Today I set out to visit Miami's new Design District and look around as a possible place to live.

I never got there. I did get to ride the MetroMover -- an elevated people mover that circles the Downtown, Brickell and Design areas. I rode the wrong one, returned back to my starting point and decided to visit the Miami Art Museum where I truly enjoyed a show of Ruffino Tamayo's paintings and a fine video installation from the MOMA in New York. I plan an article for Blogcritics Magazine on the shows. Miami is hardly a hotbed of culture but is doing its best to improve the selection of shows, galleries, performing arts and other un-southern activities.

Here in the US, in Miami I am receiving some snail mail but the existence of Skype, broadband and my email accounts has made a great change in the way we run our lives. Still, when I set up shop -- a homestead -- mailboxes will still be expected. It may as well be interesting.
