Tuesday was Valentine's Day, and Bill and I were each others' guests for a home-cooked a rack of lamb dinner.
Thursday night brought the opportunity to share tapas at El Meson with a new (as of this fall)collector from Seattle, who came this weekend to Santa Fe for a conference called Creativity and Madness. She's a psychotherapist, and had purchased one of my early pieces, called Introspection. (How perfect and what a wonderful evening it was too)! I am so happy to get to know the special people who enjoy my sculpture.

Today a dear and lovely friend from Santa Fe arrived after lunch. She has an incredible library of Oriental painting and Buddhist literature, which she freely shares with us, along with mixed Greek olives, special Trader Joe's bleu cheese, and Water Crackers. She's a published poet and editor savant, but no website, alas.
Tomorrow, President's Day, will bring a new person, new to Santa Fe, a former attorney and now a calligrapher, from California, wanting to find a community of a kindred spirit, to visit Bill after discovering him nearby on the Internet. (Sorry, too many commas!) Guess we'll share thawed frozen Christmas cookies and tea.
All the conversation on these occasions revolved around art, the art life, faith and persistence - but that's for another post. Friends, and good food, (even your husband of 30 years), what more can one wish for!
