I did good, cont. again

…Part Three in a three-part series… In the normal state of affairs, I would have blogged in great detail about this whole thing, because I’m incredibly wonky about process and I would have loved to share every excruciating detail about How I Did It, but in this case there were hippie-feelings involved.  Just posting the […]

I did good

You may have noticed, in my gargantuan list of activities from yesterday, that a great many of them had to do with Alchemy, our fall regional Burning Man-style gathering.  Here’s what happened. Last spring, we were on new property over in the Great Eastern Wastelands of Georgia and were thinking we had found a new, […]

Oldie but goodie

Again, on Facebook… I’ve actually blogged about this before… A snark (originally posted 04/27/2007) This email arrived in my box at school this morning: I wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phone? What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets? What if we flipped […]

Sir Christémas: so far, so good

I had pulled together several texts last night which I found on The Hymns and Carols of Christmas, a pretty exhaustive site. If you’d like to second guess me (other than the hundreds I didn’t even look at), here’s a list: http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/a_a_a_a_nunc_gaudet_maria.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/child_divine.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/little_children_wake_and_listen.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/sir_christmas.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/wrapt_in_the_silence_of_the_nigh.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/yule_days.htm http://www.hymnsandcarolsofchristmas.com/Hymns_and_Carols/sleep_my_little_jesus.htm I really liked the Yule Days one, […]

Santa Fe 18: Pro tips

El Paso/Carslbad Carlsbad is three hours away from El Paso, but that is the closest airport you’re likely to find. To save money we took a flight with stops, and we probably will never do that again. The drive from El Paso up to Carlsbad is OK; I would probably make time to stop at […]

Santa Fe 18, Day 7 — Santa Fe

We spent our last day mostly driving, up to Taos and back down. The scenery was stunning, as usual: Our goal was not Taos itself; we didn’t even stop in the little town. Our real goal was the Taos Pueblo.  You may imagine our surprise when the road to the Pueblo was blocked because the […]

Santa Fe 18, Day 6 — Santa Fe

You thought there were a lot of photos yesterday? Today we went to the Museum of International Folk Art. We’ve been there before, on our Cross Country Caper back in 2013, and I’ll be repeating some of my observations from then.  That first time, I was unaware that they encourage you to take photographs until […]
