Mark Johaningsmeir has been a resident of San Miguel de Allende since early 2011. Why did he move here? Not because of the architecture. It was because of a woman! Judith Jenya and Mark met in September 2010 and were married in November 2011.
He is a retired United Methodist minister, who is happy not to face a Sunday morning writing deadline every week. 
Mark grew up in Waukegan, Illinois, and spent most his adult years in Minnesota.
He has two adult children, a son near Saint Paul and a daughter in Milwaukee 
and two superlative granddaughters. Mark is gratified that his off-spring live up to the high standards of Lake Wobegon, Minnesota, “where the women are strong, the men are good looking and the children are all above average.” 
One of the projects Judith and Mark tackled in San Miguel was the planning and construction of a new home in 2014. Neither had experience in building a house. He is happy to report that they are delighted with their new home – and the marriage survived. 

Founded in January of 2016, Poetry Café Bellas Artes meets monthly, September through April. This all-volunteer community organization features local and visiting poets (established and emerging) sharing original work in a casual setting.
Please arrive a few minutes early. Seating will be first come, first seated.
