The sun is coming up over the mountains where I'm staying near Los Alamos...early for me to be up, but worth it for the view. My friend Patricia and I have just a few days left out here. It's been a great trip...we're making it up as we go along, other than a few appointments and meetings, and yesterday's trip to Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo for Feast Day (where we were invited to the home of one of her colleagues to eat.) We saw dancing there, including the Buffalo Dance. Later on we headed for Taos, which was one big traffic jam on that hot afternoon. We kept going and found ourselves in Taos Pueblo, which was beautifully serene, remote, and spectacular. It is the oldest continually inhabited village in the country. There was dancing there too, and just a few visitors...an unforgettable experience.
Today and tomorrow I am hoping to get back to Santa Fe and see some art...we were there just briefly on Tuesday, when I dropped off paintings at my gallery, Darnell Fine Art, and then met up with four Santa Fe artists--only one of whom I already knew personally--the others were Facebook friends. I'll post pictures and talk about that and a few other artists I'm hoping to meet when I get home. It was social networking of the most rewarding kind.
