Sundresses & flannel shirts, Allman Brothers, Acoma, petroglyphs and the Gila Cliff Dwellings.
As of this writing (which is mid-afternoon) I am wearing a sundress with a flannel shirt. That should give you some idea of the fickleness of New Mexico weather! Layer, layer, layer. Hot, cool, on, off. Not always fashionable, but functional at least.
Continuing work today on the new sacred sites guide. I have just completed the section on the Gila Cliff Dwellings. Such a beautiful, isolated and sacred area. I am now starting on the section for the Petroglyohs National Monument in Albuquerque and am including a video we made there a few years ago. Another magical place in this great state of New Mexico. If you haven’t been there, it is an easy trip just off I-40 in Albuquerque.
We have had a few sprinkles this afternoon and it is a lazy-feeling day. I long to be headed out I-40 with the Allman Brothers in the background, pulling into Acoma at the foot of Mount Taylor (whose section in the new sacred guide I will be working on soon) . I am always traveling while I write, either literally or in my mind. But we are still working southern New Mexico so until then it’s back to work here!
Wishing you an enchanted evening on this second day of September from under these New Mexico skies.
