santa fe, new mexico

altitude about 7,000

 

trying to stay upbeat




scale

 

it's a sunny bright day

and i'm on my way

but everybody wants to send me down

to the valley of tears

 

lyrics: Dave Bartholomew, Antonio Domino

Gillian Welch version

 

~

 

i love this little blue-doored house

the little backyard patio

with shade and sun   the little cafe table

 

the two little chairs   we live 

in a world of little

 

~

 

i love the velvet night sky     

the brilliant

high-altitude daytime sky   the sangre de cristos

 

sky and mountains

on a grand scale

I like this poem, and a humble attitude to life is liberating.

It sounds wonderful. How could life there not be grand? You convey so much in a small piece. Bright blue doors always look great on very old houses.

Life at high altitudes as natives live it, small within, huge without. Well done.

Reminds me of miniature art, or a locket , or the beauty of the Fettercairn Jewel
