Thanks, Becky.

One of the many gifts of having beeen on the road for so long is all the wondrous places I have had the privilege of visiting...and capturing, either on film, through my art or both. (Pretty much all the photos on my blog and web site are mine.)

I love the photos...the Rio Grande is one of those mythological places that are wonderfully muddy and at certain times of year shallow. I waded across it last year when I was out in Albuquerque at the Harwood Art Center for my talk "Show Me the Way to Go Home" interweaving songs, commentary, and poetry from my book "Sightlines: A Poet's Diary." I just hitched up my skirt one morning a waded across from forest to forest and loved every sandy drop of it.
