spending time in albuquerque kinda made me wanna live in a little adobe bungalow. a little adobe bungalow with a bright blue door. and i'd wear a long flowy skirt, an armful of silver bangles, and a vintage ring set with a giant chunk of turquoise. wanna come over and join me for some green chile and blue tortilla enchiladas?
one highlight of my friends' visit was a hike in Eldorado Canyon State Park. it is a gorgeous place and the trails were practically empty. we watched a bunch of rock climbers and confirmed my desire to NEVER EVER rock climb. i admire folks who climb but i prefer to stay on the ground.
there is a human or maybe a gorilla face in the rocks in the bottom photo. can you see it?
my a fanciful twist mushrooms arrived this week. they are my favorite new toy. i love moving them around and seeing how they look in different spots in our apartment.
right now they are living on the bookshelf in our main room. i think they like to read almost as much as i do.
vanessa also sent me a packet of her lovely postcards. thank you vanessa!!!!!!!!
the art in the above photo is an original piece by jen corace (top), a postcard advertising a show in soho by josh george (bottom left), and a metal postcard reporduction of a piece by eduardo chillida (bottom right) bought during our honeymoon in spain.
there is a fabulous museum dedicated to chillida's work located a short drive from the city of san sebastian. it consists of an outdoor sculpture garden and an old farmhouse which holds some works on paper and smaller sculptures.
if i could be anywhere right now i might choose to go back to san sebastian, where i could eat fabulous food, drink txakoli (a basque white wine with light bubbles), visit the chillida museum, search out the chillida sculptures above, and maybe find my first wedding ring (which was lost at the beach).
