travels and stuff

 I had the good fortune of spending 8 fabulous, art-filled days in New Mexico last month with three of my friends.  In the last several weeks, I've been working on a visual journal of sorts; it's mostly my photos along with various bits of paper and postcards picked up along the way.  Working on it has been a joy because it brings back memories of the trip.

 I think Taos was my favorite place but Albuquerque and Santa Fe were also wonderful!

I've had a problem getting things composed here at blogger lately so will put some of my photos up on the next post.
