Back from Santa Fe

It's quite a contrast, leaving an environment that's arid and brown and arriving to lushness and green. Each has its own beauty. Have begun transferring images from the laptop into the desktop to see what I really have to work with.

This one is dark, I realize, but it's supposed to be. When I make it any lighter, it loses its mystery. I may change it later, but for now, this is the way it stands. Much more to follow as I get back into my work routine. (Ha! Like I even have a routine!)

Happy birthday to me. Growing older and perhaps just a little wiser. Mortality looming large. Feverish rush to do as much as I can while I can yet simultaneously learning to slow down and savor the moment, like this quiet starry night in New Mexico. ©Carol Leigh
