New Mexico

So far all I have seen is the landscape leading up to Santa Fe. And it is beautiful. The colors are blue, red, brown, and green. The most earthy combinations. I can see how so many artists were inspired to pick up a paint brush and try to trace nature’s lines.

We’re staying with such a generous family. There’s a cabin in the back of the house with an old Gutenberg printing press, where they sit with food and wine listening to music and make prints when the sun goes down. The two dogs, one little and one big, are constant presences. And the sunset is the most incredible locus of yellow and orange I have ever seen in the bluest hazy night sky.

Dinner was a picnic of burrata, our Libellula extra virgin olive oil, garden tomatoes, pesto, cannoli beans and baked prosciutto. Now to bed!
