Spring has finally arrived with blossoming cottonwood trees, lilacs, aspens, fruit trees, and various other unidentifiable vegetation. It's 7:00am and both Seraph and Isabell are sleeping. Seraph has had a sore throat this past week and refuses to go to the doctor, and only doses herself with over-the-counter drugs. For the moment I have the house to myself and I took the opportunity to step outside and enjoy the glorious morning sun as it floods the fields. We recently aquired a new family member named Shilo. She showed up last week at our house, hungry and scared. She's part beagle, and part blue heeler, and just a wonderful dog. We keep her in the breeze way where she has a bed and free roam of the huge yard. I pick her up and place her on my lap as I view "our backyard". Jicarita Peak peers over the foot hills as it's snowy mantle slowly melts away and feeds the rushing streams that go through the valleys. The birds are swooping from tree to tree and others are skimming the fields in search of breakfast. Magpies flitter there wings and there white tips skim along the ground as they fly low over the fields. A new sound has engulfed the area; there is a swampy area nearby where frogs are chorusing throughout.

Yesterday, at school, we had our May festival. Seraph, Isabell, her friend Niamh, and I drove down to Santa Fe where I helped out with painting rocks with kids. Seraph helped out handing out signs and talking with other teachers. We also had a silent auction where we bought a 6x3 Turkish Rug for only $25. After returning Niamh home, we came home to relax, watch movies, and enjoy a quiet evening.

Today, we will go to church, and we have reservations at the Bistro where we will celebrate Mother's Day.

Next Wednesday, I will be flying to Portland to finally sign papers on the house and pack a U-haul. Finally we can move on with our lives and start renovating our little old adobe house in Chamisal. Our lives have been like a puzzle here, and finally the house in Chamisal is the finale piece missing.

Sorry I've been out of touch the last few days

Sorry I've been out of touch the last few days. I started working again yesterday, and I've been sick for the last week or so. I seem to have gotten Isa's cold, plus a little more - yuck!
We had our first celeb siting here in Taos. Last Sat we went to an opening at our friends gallery, and Dennis Hopper was there. Appaently he's in town promoting his own art show at the Harwood that coincides with the Summer of Love celebration (40 years since '69).
