Dateline .... Belen, New Mexico .... It has been 4 days since my last post ... you'd think I am too busy. Being off the road is totally different than being on. Am settling into my "home" routine and I can't think of anything that exciting to share with you, yet. The most interesting thing on the horizon is what is happening with our gas wells out on the mesa ... and we must wait another 2 weeks.
Tomorrow is Summer Solstice and my community does celebrate, and we are. A potluck and ceremony in the Eastern mountains. Michael Moore is coming to town with his new movie "Fahrenheit 9/11" and a group is forming to go to Albuquerque to see that on the 25th of June. The gardens are growing, the Farmer's Market will soon open, and the lazy daze of summer are here!
What is SOOO nice is the blue sky, no clouds, no rain, no storms, no wind, just the birds, the bees, the butterflies, summer sounds, the faraway train whistle, and the summer heat just kinda goes with it all. The swamp coolers work just swell, keeping the proper moisture in the inside air.
Here is a summer scene from my photo collection. I took this picture on my way home through Colorado in August 2003.
