Garage Sailing

Saturday's are all about that favorite Santa Fe pastime Garage Sailing.
If I am not hosting a retreat or workshop, Saturday mornings will find me up, and out early. Intent on finding that "sucha deal" I will have started my preparation the day before. Carefully perusing Craigslist and the New Mexican I plan the route, letting my intuition be my guide. I set sail for myself and my friends, they know to put requests in for that special something for me to be on the look out.
 I must say yesterday was a banner garage/estate sale day even by Santa Fe standards.

My first stop was an estate sale which held me hostage for almost 2 hours.
It was the last day of the sale and everything was half off.
Great finds included a mola, an Indian tablecloth, 3 rugs,
 and an amazing photography book "The Pleasure of Ruins"

 Sweet vintage children's books at such a good price I am embarrassed to say.

Fun finds for visual journaling.

All things considered I was a good girl.
I left many, many treasures for others to give a good home.

Desert Rain

In the desert, the first righteous rain of the summer monsoon season
 is cause for celebration.
All of nature rejoices..with thunder and lightning..the pungent smell of sage and the
the remembrance of moisture in the air, and on the skin.
No matter if plans for the evening involve Friday night Gallery openings,
 so much the better an excuse to get wet.
With the rain comes permission to settle in and light the outdoor kiva.
Quiet, starring into the fire..the sweet smell of pinon heavy in the air.

Taking the first step

Taking the first step.

Why did I think creating a blog was as easy as 1-2-3? 
Bear with me as I learn my way around here.
