Peace and quiet were encouraged at Ojo Caliente Hot Springs. Not only did the management have people walking around with “Whisper Please” signs when it seemed people were getting too loud at the pools, cellphones were prohibited in most public places, the rooms did not have phones, and this was the public telephone. I was struck by another mild anxiety attack this afternoon, perhaps brought on by more prospective storms, so I am home curled up with Mr. Man, and remembering being happy and relaxed over the last two weekends.

Quote of the day: “I’ve begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own.” — Chaim Potok

Daily gratitudes:
The man holding two tiny toddlers hands crossing the street this morning
Cowboy boots
Lunch outside
Cold milk
Mr. Man’s paws crossed on the computer


MKL and I have been off the grid, spending three blissful days at Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs in northern New Mexico. It has taken me some time to grow to love New Mexico, and some of the landscape is still too stark for me to feel it in my soul, but the sky is a clear blue that I have never seen anywhere else, the quality of light is magical, and the earth has little to hide. Ojo Caliente was historic, lovely, and soothing. They had six soaking pools, and each had its own energy. I”ll share more pictures from our trip this week.

Quote of the day: “Even today the most jaded city dweller can be unexpectedly moved upon encountering a clear night sky studded with thousands of twinkling stars. When it happens to me after all these years it still takes my breath away.” — Carl Sagan

Daily gratitudes:
Birds flying motionless on air currents
The trees in the yard whipping in the pre-storm wind
Being away
Coming home
Cinnamon red dragonflies
