White Sands

     Following several visits to Colorado’s Great Sand Dunes in recent years, in May 2016 I finally had the opportunity to acquaint myself with White Sands in neighboring New Mexico. Both sandscapes rise like physical anachronisms from the surrounding land and seem to be the product of a painter who wielded her brush in sinuous movements across the canvas. From her palette, she used grey and reddish tints in Colorado, and what appears to be essence of…

Morning Chorus

     As long as I can remember, I have not needed an alarm clock. I typically awake on my own, without having my dreams disrupted by an annoying beeping, and I have always loved sunrise.
