"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

Off to Santa Fe

Tomorrow morning, I am off to Santa Fe!  This is, next to New York, my most beloved city.  I spent  11 glorious Summers here....  I haven't been in four years....my Ex (and Bofie) invited me to meet them this year...so, armed with a new camera, I decided to go! I will take a lot of photos of *my* Santa Fe...and look forward to sharing them with you.

Chimayo...a beautiful Church - which also has a fantastic restaurant next door.   

The Santa Fe Opera House....a truly unique and enchanting place to experience live Opera!  The sunsets are magical...and the performances don't start UNTIL the sun begins to set...sometimes, there are thunder/lightning storms - which heighten the experience.  I will only be there for a few rehearsals, bt it will be wonderful to be there again.

No trip to the Southwest would be complete without......Margaritas!   Deliciouso!

I'll be back in a week....and just MAY be able to post from there.....  (we'll see....more on this later).

Sending you all many hugs and much love!  Via con Dios!

♥ Robin ♥

  10. "I am off to Santa Fe!"

    Better Santa Fe than Kabul Baghdad, I always say, and I bet you do too! I think it was just last year that Dennis Hopper was buried up the road in Taos.

  11. An amazing place that can become addictive.
    And be careful, you may come back wanting to paint!

  12. "you may come back wanting to paint!"

    And why would she come back? What do you think, Robin, could you see yourself living in Santa Fe? It's kind of locked away as a cultural oasis, I know, but all that wide open country in New Mexico is awfully beautiful

  13. waiting to hear all about this trip....i love santa fe - there is something so very mysterious about the landscape there!! give a pat to bofie for me!
