A Few Words…
I’m Tom. I don’t run Discover New Mexico for profit. On the contrary, you might say it’s a costly endeavor. But numbers in a spreadsheet can’t always gauge the intangible things, like the ones that boost our spirits and add purpose to our lives.
I’ve adored New Mexico since my first visit — it’s charming, perhaps even enchanting. Inscrutable and unforgiving at times but doubtlessly beautiful. Exploring and documenting all corners of our state is an aspiration that comes naturally.
For the most part, I do things solo.
You won’t need reminding of all the chaos we’ve faced in 2020 & 2021. This uncertainty hampered many of my best-laid plans and I was forced to focus more time on the newsletter. But, undeterred, I will be getting back to the ambitious plan of publishing many more articles on New Mexico’s natural beauty. I also can’t wait to explore a photojournalism project, which will offer a window into some of the most interesting people I’ve met on my journeys.
Even after completion, this appeal won’t offset all my costs. However, with some encouragement, I decided to launch it as a means of helping toward some new and much-improved photography equipment. After all, every little bit helps.
Once again, keep being awesome and thank you.
Tom of Discover New Mexico.
