Santa Fe Update

Yours truly spent Christmas in Santa Fe, New Mexico - the Land of Enchantment. Visited with our older sister Maureen Freyne, the stuggling artist. Haven't seen her since 1988. Time flies.

It's been a tough struggle for Maureen. Unfortunately, her talent with a brush is not matched by her commercial/marketing skills. On Wednesday, Annie the Artist's Rep, who we recently met at the Langdon Street Cafe in Montpeculiar, arrived in Santa Fe from Arizona where she had been spending the holidays with friends. Curious Annie wanted to see Maureen's paintings for herself. And what she saw blew her away!

Took her out to the storage lockers on Thursday where Maureen keeps a rather voluminous body of work. Her specialty is painting the old churches of New Mexico in a way no one else paints them. In fact, you'll be seeing a few of them back in Vermont in the not too distant future. Cool.

Then on Thursday afternoon a little of the white stuff started falling. This is not known as snow country, but it hasn't stopped since. We're positively, absolutely snowed in. Buried in the stuff, and New Mexico is not a state with a whole lot of snow plows. Meanwhile, Vermont remains on the warm and brown side.
