Mary Jane and I have just returned from a place that is…dream like…peaceful…and serene. Santa Fe, New Mexico.
‘Santa Fe, New Mexico’s capital, sits in the Sangre de Cristo foothills. It’s renowned for its Pueblo-style architecture and as a creative arts hotbed. Founded as a Spanish colony in 1610, it has at its’ heart the traditional Plaza. The surrounding historic district’s crooked streets wind past adobe landmarks including the Palace of the Governor’s, now home to the New Mexico History Museum.’ Santa Fe City in New Mexico.
‘Santa Fe is the 10th-highest city US city by altitude at 7198 feet.’ wikipedia.org
Last Sunday, or our first day there, we visited the Spanish Market…that is a annual event in the heart of Santa Fe.
The artisans and, Tin Artists who’s art is known as hojalata, were extraordinary in their complexity and diversity. Mechem, introduced us to one of her friends who had made some very beautiful pieces of Tin Art.
Santa Fe is surrounded by mountains.
Being with Dear Ron and Ira Kaye, is always a joy and a pleasure! Also, being able to visit with the wonderful Carson and Mechem and their delightful children was a special treat!
I went on the most pleasurable walk with Ron and Ira Kaye…that was both invigorating and feast for the eyes and senses!
Mountains captivate my imagination! It appears to me that Santa Fe…could provide an artist…or a dreamer…a lifetime of inspiration!
