Over Time

Remember my post about Time...  
The one I wrote about making the most of it.
Well, today I made some for myself.

But Time's twin nature which the ancient Greeks called Chronos and Kairos is playing havoc with me lately.

Chronos is keeping track of time.
Kairos is taking her sweet time.
Chronos is determined to find the time.
Kairos has plenty.

Chronos is in a hurry.

Kairos is not.

We do in chronos.

In kairos, we're allowed to be.

Chronos is time at her worst.  
Kairos is time at her best.
Chronos plays it safe.
Kairos let's go!

Chronos is a delusion of grandeur.

Kairos is transcendence & joy.

Chronos is either sink or swim.
Kairos is floating.  
Chronos requires speed so it won't be wasted.

Kairos requires space so that it can be savored.

It only takes a moment to cross over from Chronos into Kairos, but it does take a moment.
I've missed you dear friends and am looking forward to plenty of Kairos with you all!

Good Morning Santa Fe!

Make mine sunny side up!

On our recent trip to Santa Fe, my mother and daughter joined me every morning for breakfast on the patio at La Posada.

Yes, this is blog-worthy news. 
You see, my mother & daughter are not morning people, and the daughter doesn't generally do breakfast.
photo Lisa Porter
But, holy guacamole, get the girls on a little vacay and they rise & shine & dive right in!
On this particular morning, I went for the Huevos Rancheros and my Taylor enjoyed the Eggs Benedict, with milk, tea, oh & coffee too!

Gallery hopping and fabulous shopping were at our beck and call.

On Canyon Road.

Canyon Road in Santa Fe has over a hundred art galleries in a mile stretch.  These include world-class Native American, Contemporary, Historic, and Internationally recognized artists.  
Historic architecture, sculpture, and gardens oh my!

Ok, and a little stalking did occur. 
photo Lisa Porter  This little beauty was tucked behind the gallery where I discovered artist Lisa Linch.
Titles usually give insight into the artist's vision of a particular painting.

I finally felt myself slowing down to Santa Fe speed.
My mother's favorite stop is always
for antique Native American art.

She pulled up a chair and had a chat with the owner while Taylor and I had a look around.  Nana's been up & down this road many times!

He was really quite loveable in bronze,

all the way down to his massive paw!

Across Canyon Road we found
Selby Fleetwood GalleryAn amazing sculpture that seemed to be catching the breeze, by
Christina Chalmers
Chalmers gives the formless form using materials in both an organic and intuitive way in each unique piece!

There is so much to enjoy about Canyon Road. The art, the architecture, the gardens, and even the unexpected.
