footnotes to October

October was a rich month for me: the exciting and profound experience of traveling with Peggy, a lovely week with my parents in the land of my birth, an impromptu trip with my Tim to go visit College Boy Reeve in southern NM (then road-tripping with Reeve and his girlfriend for a couple of days.) I didn’t get around to blogging much during October, but now that I’ve left it behind, a few blog-appropriate reflections have surfaced: For optimal sense of adventure and  exhilaration of discovery: predawn runs with a camera are highly recommended when one is visiting a new... read more

dawn, coast to coast

local color

Contrary to what the Madison Avenue crowd—with their red and orange images of autumn— would have us think, autumn in Santa Fe is . . . purple and yellow. Nature taking the region’s reputation for nonconformity to heart . . . Shot this on my commute along the railroad tracks (walking, that is) on the way to the Mothering home base. # # # # # # Tags: fall, flowers, photography, Santa Fe This entry was posted ... read more
