Mobile in the Palisades of Cimarron Canyon, New Mexico from Junebug57 on Vimeo.

This is the reason I didn't take a photo of the Palisades. I was videoing it. I did not even realize that I had captured it on video.

Palisades of Cimarron Canyon New Mexico

Mountains thrill me. I could so live near mountains! These are the Palisades of Cimarron Canyon in New Mexico. I borrowed the first two photos from Towanda of Santa Fe. I don't know how I actually missed photographing these as we were driving by. I think I was so in awe I forgot until it was too late.
If you enlarge the photo below you can read the historic marker.

I truly loved the scenery starting in New Mexico and all the way to Colorado. It was a feast for the eyes.

Flower Power

Glorious morning

Hidden jewels

Two young lovers

Star of the show!

And do the other things

We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.

I Have a Photograph

I have a photograph:

My step-mom, MaryAnn, and my dad around December 1985.

Old Friends
Old Friends
Sat on their park bench like bookends
Newspaper blowin' through the grass
Falls on the round toes
Of the high shoes
Of the old friends

Old Friends
Winter companions the old men
Lost in thier overcoats
Waiting for the sunset
The sounds of the city sifting through trees
Settle like dust
On the shoulders of the old friends

Can you imagine us years from today
Sharing a park bench quietly?
How terribly strange to be seventy...

Old Friends
Memory brushes the same years
Silently sharing the same fear

(Musical Interlude)

A time it was
It was a time
A time of innocence
A time of confidences

Long ago it must be
I have a photograph
Preserve your memories
They're all that's left you
