House-hunting with my friend today. Daunting. Then we had burgers and fries, which made up somewhat for the ordeal. Here's something I made, a turquoise necklace with a sterling silver clasp.
Up at an indecent hour to go get fasting blood work done for next week's physical. Took an hour, as a little crowd sat in the waiting room, looking at each other. Collectively, we were all as hungry as a regiment. But it got done. Have to keep traveling. It's a long way to Mars.
Hard at work, cleaning up my studio and disposing of the unwanted. Cool breeze through the canyon, signalling fall, which today is the first of.
A day threatening rain, which we can always use. Odd not to see the sun.
In Albuquerque, they have rules....
Chilly today for Albuquerque. East cold front, coming through the canyon. 70 degrees. Time for a trip. Let's row to the Pleiades.
But! Now that I have this b-b-blog, I can post pictures here. Brunch at the Bent Street Cafe, Taos, NM.
New Mexico is beautiful!
Back from weekend travels to Taos, New Mexico and on up to Arroyo Seco, New Mexico. The weather was glorious. The Rio Grande River Gorge sang in the sunlight and the towering mountains were immense and a range of blues and grays. It was grand to be out in the intense views and the silence. See my Facebook page for a couple of views. jeanettecollins@highdesertart.
Began Chapter Four of 'The Death of Jules Bergermann', posted here.
Laboring to finish my new book, 'Emma Winters'.
Waiting industriously for word on the publication of my novel, 'Elena Chavez', by Decadent Publishing.
The noxious word 'blog' is an abbreviated form of 'web log'. That doesn't help. Sounds like a mouthful of tapioca.
Surely there is something else to call a page with comments, but I don't know what it is.
I'm trying to go along with the masses, but if I come across another term, I'm definitely going to use it.
In the meantime, here I am. I do most of my 'commenting' on the 'Words' page of highdesertart, disguised as poetry.
However, to receive any comments or feedback, I now establish this blog.
Hopefully, someone out there will respond.
For instance, how is 'The Death of Jules Bergermann' striking you? I've posted three chapters, but have had no response, except stats tell me I have quite a number of readers. Tell me who you are, and what you think.
I have to call this a blog, or I can't archive my frequent jogs into that intellectual boon, the cartoon.
