Santa Fe

I am traveling again, this time to Santa Fe for a Mark Pharis workshop. I just love Santa Fe, so it was easy to say yes when Susan, who I met last year at the Bray, asked if I wanted to go.

This morning the first thing Susan asked me was, where is the closest Starbucks.  Never fear my trusty Around Me app got us to the Starbucks near the Plaza.  Not only was I able to have my favorite beverage but I have someone to imbibe with me!  This is going to be a good week!  We visited the Georgia O’Keefe Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, galleries, before heading back to get the car to drive to the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture.

Bill Daley told me when he taught in Santa Fe years ago he took all of his students to see The Staircase.  “You must go see it, Charlotte”  We did – what an feat to build this staircase with two 360 degree turns and no visible means of support.
