September Call to Creatives ~ September Fanta Se

September in Northern New Mexico is pure magic. It is all about the light.
 The air is perfect and landscape golden.

After Labor Day things slow down, and the air is filled with the pungent aroma of roasting chiles. A  chilly nights will have us checking the woodpile, and pulling some sweet seasoned pinon for the first fire of the Fall. By month's end the largest stand of Aspens in North America just up Hyde Park Road will be at peak color. A walk in the golden light of these great Aspens is otherworldly.

Once again I invite your submissions of short stories, poetry, photographs, and closest to my heart: art journal pages in answer to the September Call to Creatives.

  1. Krista -- your photography is as enchanting as Santa Fe! Beautiful!

  2. i grew up in san diego...ocean girl i am. but i had an aunt who raised her children in sante fe. this meant season family visits to your land of enchantment.
    is it any wonder i grew up loving the flickering of light from small folded brown paper bags lining the nightscape? or that the fragrance of roasting chilies is among my favorites? that i long for an earthern outdoor oven just like this to coax ground flours into perfect breads? or that a gold landscape speakes to me with immeasurable delight?

    thank you for brightening my morning....
