Back in the saddle

We returned late last night from nearly a week in New Mexico, where we attended a splendid family reunion.

The countryside is beautiful this year -- abundant rain has turned the prairie bright green -- and the air was clean and fresh (if a little thin during my morning walks at 6,600 feet above sea level). A nice change of pace from the smoky skies that have plagued us during the forest fires here in Northern California.

Finished the week at a backyard barbecue in Albuquerque, drinking mojitos and talking books with witty friends. Doesn't get much better than that.

Now, it's laundry and groceries and catching up e-mail. I'll post something fun later today. Stay tuned.
