santa fe, new mexico

altitude about 7,000


trying to stay upbeat



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

Love reading the different nuance and thoughtfulness that goes into your thing I can say, your not a one trick pony.

Lovely art, enjoyed.

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
