Today was all about the journey to Taos, the chance to reflect, get some perspective. Drive, baby, drive. If there’s a better time to ‘flirt with disaster’ courtesy of Molly Hatchet than on the “high road” to Taos, I don’t know when it is. Thank you, radio stations named Coyote and Mountain, for the Doors, Stones, Van Halen, Eagles, Bob Seger, BTO, 38 Special et al. What a soundtrack for a nearly six-hour round trip.

Spectacular day. Perfect weather for open windows and loud music, taking in the mountains and blue sky, letting everything go except focusing on twists and turns in the road. Such special moments at Santuario de Chimayo, Cafe Tazza and the Taos Pueblo.

I am blessed.
