FALL IS HERE…IN JUST TWO WEEKS…MY CALENDAR - The summer of 2017 has been busy, intense, rewarding, demanding, short…and is almost over. In fact let me declare it over because I leave on my fall road trip in two weeks—which obviously means fall begins on August 26th. The more I get used to this world of “fakery” the easier to live within it. … Continue reading FALL IS HERE…IN JUST TWO WEEKS…MY CALENDAR
PART TWO: THE LUNA, ART AND PLANT SPRING - Since Patricia’s Luna remains the world’s greatest dog, we’ll start with pictures of her, move on to two of my favorite artists and their recent shows, followed by one of my glacier photos, and finish up with plants…Only Then can summer begin. LUNA THE WONDER DOG. AND TWO OF MY FAVORITE ARTISTS: BRUCE DAVIS CHRIS … Continue reading PART TWO: THE LUNA, ART AND PLANT SPRING
PART ONE: THE SPRING OF SARA AND KALIA - In New Mexico things have happened; I’ve just been writing something else and neglecting my blogs. Now there’s a whole spring of photos to post…What comes first in order importance? Kalia, Sara’s new puppy of course. Oh yeah, besides Kalia, Sara did graduate high school and is off to UNM this fall.  She chose to … Continue reading PART ONE: THE SPRING OF SARA AND KALIA
SUNDAY WITH FRIED RICE AND A NEW FLOWER - When I don’t blog it feels like I’ve forgotten something. But I’m so very busily writing so the posts are few right now. It’s been a very nice Sunday and days like this should noted and treasured…First  I wrote and watered my plants, including this new mystery flower that’s grown up next to the bamboo. … Continue reading SUNDAY WITH FRIED RICE AND A NEW FLOWER
SPRING IN NEW MEXICO - Wait…there is no spring here, at least not one a northerner would consider worthy of the name. Here we go from bare branches to full blown leaves with no pause for odes to the season in between. That may be an exaggeration but not by much. No falling icicles, no rich earthy smells as the sun and … Continue reading SPRING IN NEW MEXICO
ALL GOOD (CHEERLEADING) THINGS MUST END - Sara will graduate high school. Sara will start college. Sara is no longer a cheerleader. But back when she was (up until two weeks ago) what a lithe and pretty presence on the playing fields and courts of Albuquerque. Now, however it’s off to UNM and the next move toward real life. I want to tell … Continue reading ALL GOOD (CHEERLEADING) THINGS MUST END
A Tree, a Sunrise, and a Sunset walk into a bar… -   The idea of geography is exciting to me: especially “the study of the physical features of the earth and its atmosphere…”  It doesn’t play out the way it should in my life though—I don’t  walk and climb and hike through it; I seem to be better at staring at it from train windows or … Continue reading A Tree, a Sunrise, and a Sunset walk into a bar…
Back in the Bosque - It was a great relief to be invited back for a walk in the Bosque with friend Beth’s hiking club after whining a lot last time. I was chastised for not bringing water but the walk was only three hours on flat land so I was fine without, although I believe that’s considered bad hiking … Continue reading Back in the Bosque
WHAT DOESN’T KILL YOU MAKES YOU STRONGER - Thanks to Friend Beth’s invitation I walked/climbed 6.6 miles/1162 feet yesterday. Now granted I wasn’t appropriately grateful on some of those long uphill stretches but nine hours in bed and a pain pill later I am ready to offer up an earnest thank you. One of those goldy fall days, nice people, such a much better … Continue reading WHAT DOESN’T KILL YOU MAKES YOU STRONGER
FIRST TIMES -   I walked the 10K Walk of the Duke City Marathon 2016. Did It. Who knew it would be so much harder to walk steadily and quickly (for me) for 10K than just to amble along taking photos every few yards? It Was Very Hard. But hey, I was second in my age/sex group—out of … Continue reading FIRST TIMES
