Santa Fe & Taos – Retreat! Retreat!

To keep from pathetically staring at one another wondering what to do with ourselves with this new way of life for Richard called ‘retirement’, we decided a road trip was needed and headed to Santa Fe and Taos. 

 Richard captures moments and places with photographs.

San Jose de Garcia Catholic Church (1780), Las Trampas, on the High Road between Taos & Santa Fe. 

This is our favorite photo…until Richard did the black & white one of the Taos Pueblo graveyard. So much works on this photo…

We saw a couple of great exhibits. One at the Art Museum: “It’s about Time” with some of the best written exhibit labels I’ve ever read. So a history exhibit at the Art Museum and we loved an art exhibit at the History Museum “Illuminating the Word” (Wow!) & “Contemplative Landscape”.

The opening panel at the sacred art exhibit at the History Museum: “Creativity and spirituality have been a pervasive social phenomena from the beginning of human history; without an interest in the humanities, in personal ethics and values, as manifest in everyday life, we lose our ability to contribute to the greater good of humanity.”  Well said.

“Jesus says buy Folk Art” greeted us outside Ed Larson’s gallery on Canyon Road. Seems like Ed has a lot to say artistically…
