RELOCATION


AUTUMN AWESOME SANTA FE, NM

When I look beyond the quarry of my own chains and rowing towards publication, my soul is nourished.

Santa Fe is star power and can shower your life with photographic moments on the half-hour. Like any city, village, or town you have some culture to conform to, or else you won’t be taken seriously.  In Los Angeles, I learned you have to be able to put on cinematic charisma to get a conversation going with a stranger.  Here in Santa Fe invitations arrive if you are believable bohemian, liberal, and artistic.

 My direction is following Lawrence Durrell, “Spirit of the Place,” and living where I would never expect to live.  I wish I could control my impractical, impulsive, and annoying spirit of adventure. I think about architecture, Jewish deli’s, Italian restaurants, at least five movie theaters built in the 1930s, and neighborhoods of unfamiliar lighting, expressions, and conversations.  In my syndicate,08041215581.jpgthere must be a dozen pals with the same unsolved equation. Is it age  that blocks me and maybe you from relocation, or is it the trauma and stress? What liberation to just pack a suitcase and board a plane like in the movies. Separation from the familiar. Ask any soldier what it’s like to come home.
