Mi Corazón es tan lleno…. te amo

I know you are

But, what am I?

https://youtu.be/gm_WBeh4enw

Sorry I couldn’t resist!

Tell me, have you seen a sunset
Turn into a sunrise?
Kiss right through the night?

‘Cause we should try that sometime
Hold you ’til the mornin’
And if I said I’m fallin’, would you just reply
“I know you are, but what am I?”

😁

Much love

Soul talk

The new me,

Blessed and grateful in this moment.

Internally: I truly am…

What is meant for me will come to me.

Internally: when? The tiredness, ache in the soul.

Those who care, show up, show it.

Internally: empty

She carry’s on…

Still breathing… alive…

La Vida

La vida gives me another year.

To celebrate I was taken to Santa Fe. I’ve been wanting to go, since it had been so long since I had seen it.

The plaza is almost as I remember it. The Native Americans sit against the wall and sell their handmade jewelry. I’ve always loved this. The shops around it are quaint and southwestern.

The rail yard is way cool! There’s a farmers market! Fresh veggies! Breads! Crafts. Kinda like the mothership calling me home. Not to mention there was an REI right next to it.

This place!! Mexican food! Who’s doesn’t like mexican good? That address pulled me in, that and a local lady I was talking to. She said I’ve been eating here for years. In we go. Omg, the burritos and sopapillas. Check out that address. 😊

Speaking of the women of northern NM. Ok, so we kinda were. They are so stylish in their own way. Baggy linen pants or skirts . T-shirt, cute unraveled sweater. Some wear their little hats. It’s not a style that can be copied. But it’s in the way they carry themselves. Confident and aware. You see the tourists try to imitate but these ladies with their understated elegance don’t have that harried try too hard way about them. These ladies are calm and have a knowing… they look you in the eye, smile and just know.

The Museum of Contemporary Native arts was pretty amazing.

Meow Wolf… ok, this place is awesome. It’s interactive art at its best. We spent about 3 hours there. It’s hard to explain but, if you’re ever in the area, you really need to check this place out.

Love yourself cafe, the perfect ending to an amazing long weekend. They start you with a gift. It has cucumber, apple,celery, silica and goodness. Everything is vegetarian can be made vegan and organic. My kind of hippy place!! What? You know I had to try the waffle. My favorite thing! 😆 My compadre had the skillet. That first pic is their ceiling.

I’m sure I missed quite a bit. But Santa Fe is still a beautiful place..

Much Peace and Love…

Doing just fine?

Coming out of my cage
And I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this?
Only a kiss, it was only a kiss

✌️♥️

Not today

No good morning texts

No pumpkin spice for my coffee

No person to fix what he was supposed to

Someone strung my weed eater backwards

Passive aggressive?

Mosquito the only love bite on my shoulder

Not today!

I got this

In Sias words

I got drinks to drink, and men to hold
I got good things to do with my life, yeah
Oh, I wanna dance in the open breeze
Feel the wind in my hair, hear the ocean sing
I got good things to feel in my life, yeah

✌️❤️

Lunch at Devils Hall

What a beautiful day! Perfect weather…

I have completed 2 of these trails. So 2 to go!

Today’s trail was Devil’s Hall.

It’s starts out pretty nice a little elevation but nothing really strenuous.

Still lots of pretty wildflowers out. 💕

This is where the fun begins!

You just follow the wash all the way. Lots of rocks and big boulders.

It was a really great day.

Ever feel like you’re being watched? 😆

She was having lunch too..

Yum!

Back to the local trail for now.

Wheeler peak is calling… 😎

✌️❤️

P.S.

Because I still wake up every morning and first thing I want to do is see your face..

Aw The daughter and I watched P.S. I love you. Again… She says you know mom, I heard Gerard Butler is quite the whore… lol I said if I looked like him I would be too! As a matter of fact if I looked like him I would wake up every morning and Thank God for me! To which we both about died laughing. No, we weren’t drinking.

It had been a long time since we had seen it and it was like watching it for the first time.

There are only a couple of men I really love watching on screen and this is one. If you know me you will know the other. 🧜‍♂️

Hilary Swank is one of my favorite actresses though, and I love her dresses in the movie.

kissing her would be the end of life as I knew it. 💕 his truth.

Funny how all romance or romantic stories seem to be such fantasy.

This is another with letters!

Not long ago someone told me it’s all just a game.

Of course he was angry and inebriated. But for some reason it has stayed on my mind.

What am I getting at?

None of us leave this world alive..

If we meet it will be the end of life as we know it.

✌️❤️Raq

P.S. Guess what?
