I should probably know my mountains better, given how long I’ve lived here. But I do know that this view is from the porch in front of our room at Cottonwood Hot Springs, looking west up to Cottonwood Pass. Last month when we were up there, there was still considerable snow, so we didn’t try to make it up to the top in Greta (one of MKL’s vintage BMWs), but the sight of storm clouds crisscrossing the mountains like friendly giants was too pretty to miss.  The last time we were on Cottonwood Pass, we salsa danced at sunset. The next time, we plan to hike the high pass.


Our next hot springs trip is only two weeks away, and it will be a new experience for both of us, so I’m looking forward to being able to share it with you!

Quote of the day: “Women and men who have established no-lie relationships talk about them with reverence, even when they are not permanent and, in fact, even when they are not romantic. Why? In the no-lie relationship there is acceptance of who each partner is, rather than a shallow idealization. There is a genuine commitment to the relationship beyond the immediate. You each act as though you are in a real partnership that will last.” — Dory Hollander

Daily gratitudes:
My ruby slippers
Thunder that shakes the house
For once, not taking the high(est) road with my ex
Vintage nightgowns
The argument overheard at the bus stop about the Abbott and Costello “Who’s on First” sketch (which was almost as good as the sketch itself)
