In person once again

Plans for a fall trip to New Mexico and Ghost Ranch fell apart yesterday as I realized I had failed to read my calendar properly. I am deeply disappointed that things have gone awry. This will be the first year in a while that I have not made such a trip. I had already begun to pencil in an itinerary that included attending a Menaul School football game. After spending a few days in Colorado, I realized anew how much that part of the country feeds my spirit and nurtures my soul. But this year, it is not to be.

Disappointed as I am, I recognize that this “problem”  fails to amount to a hill of beans in this broken and battered world. After a primal scream of sorts, where I acknowledged my privilege, I have begun making plans – plans for what I will do in the New York city area during those days – and plans to increase the likelihood that next year, I will view this in person once again:

 

Assuming I have read my calendar correctly this time and assuming I can make the plans come together, my alternatives for the fall should result in a fairly significant, in the extremely privileged,  not amounting to a hill of beans sense of significance, announcement late in October or early in November.

See you along the Trail.

Purple flowers, Ghost Ranch 5

A picture posted a couple weeks ago
shows a bee enjoying
purple flowers at Ghost Ranch.
This photo was taken over a year after the first one.

It cannot be
the same bee.

Perhaps a descendant?

 See you along the Trail.

Working in chronological order and recognizing that photos of purple flowers have not been taken intentionally, this one comes again from Ghost Ranch – a reminder of the purple diversity that exists even within the same area.

See you along the Trail.

Purple flowers, Ghost Ranch 1

Ghost Ranch
Abiquiu, New Mexico

It has become a series. Purple flowers. Not a celebration of Northwestern University. Not a purple haze. But a purple phase.

A photo of purple flowers will appear each Monday – at least as long as there are photos to post. The shades will vary. Some may argue that certain flowers are not purple. That could be the case, but my decision will be final.

I will name few, if any of the flowers. I take the photos for the color and because they interest me. As far as possible, I will identify the location of the flowers and the date of the photo.

See you along the Trail.
