PAINTINGS

I like to walk in the mornings. These photos show me, Warren and Sunny on trail in New Mexico at early dawn. The long shadows of the yucca plants look like indigenous people.

Carrizo Mountain is full of mystery. Indigenous people and the Columbian mammal roamed there. Rock formations and the sky tell their stories.
