Oh my..what a wonderful 4 days in Taos with 6 other adventurous women! We had an amazing time enjoying the beauty of the area and responding to the crystal clear air, the natural beauty and the ancient Pueblo life. I really wanted the weekend to balance art work with exploration of this place. There is so much to see; every little path, alley, cloud, shadows; all beg to be remembered (photographed, sketched, written about). The time flew by and was so satisfying to hear that everyone wished for a few more days in the atmosphere of creative expression and gentle challenges. I just love it there, and I love working with a group of fun, focused folks who are generous with their energy, humor and Taos spirit. Thanks to Ann, Kate, Jill, Devera, Mary and Susie...and Mabel, Millicent and Graham (as in Graham's Grille)! On to New York next month! What a contrast in location...
Last week I followed my son's Constitutional Law team to DC and found five days of (what I call) "adventure journal" time! Heading in the metro to un-known spots, finding perfect benches & perfect boats, perfect bakeries and a perfect paper store. Here is a two page spread of little sketches - the left side was from a boat trip on the Potomac, the right incoporated my CO name tag with a live Sting concert playing in the background. (He was on the mall for an earth day protest). All I needed was an iced coffee, a bench and a moment to capture - it was heaven!!I can't wait to organize an adventure journal trip to NY; although cancelled for this June I am hoping to get a group together to share the fun in the fall.
