outside of Albuquerque

couple of nights ago… reaching the mountains, east of Albuquerque, with a sky clouded (but dry by that time), thinking to myself, what a shame: with the clouds there’d be no stars, no moon – had been looking forward to this part of the drive so as to see the show – when(!) there it was: this one pretty shooting star came by low enough to travel below the clouds – I mean, still, you’re up there above the 6k feet elevation… it was traveling east (too) as I was looking out the window of the u-haul (looking north); I’d almost turned to cut through the mountains, west of Albuquerque, north to Santa Fe – would have missed it had I. thank you prettiest star of the night. kept me from disappointment; and I smiled.

About KatherinePopeWolcott

currently compiling thoughts/writings -- notebooks full, pulled apart and put back together and then something new, and here it all comes. two books being finished in the interim. Sometimes really frustrating. I remain with little interest in attempting to learn the "how to" parts of blogging because I'm technically inept, so multiple limitations are always present; just try not to think about... but other creations coming soon -- I think I am able to scan/pdf; what I am currently working on (paintings and photos and painted photos) once finished; or get someone else to do it for me.
