Well, golly gee ... a quiet evening at home. The sun is quietly setting, there's no wind and there's a lovely golden hue spreading across the valley below us.
We've been busy with season changes. SW Open School had a musical concert Wednesday noon, graduation Thursday evening and a school picnic in Dolores midday Friday. Poet Art Goodtimes, - a Green Party member, a poet and a San Miguel County Commissioner - was the commencement speaker.
One of the neat parts of the picnic was when Colin's class tested the bridges they built in his class. The student scooped sand into a bucket suspended from the bridge till it broke. I think the most weight a bridge would stand went to at least 37 pounds!
Friday night we enjoyed a concert at the Distillery by Beth Wheeler, Chris Massingill and Marilyn Kroeker ... "Vixen." Good musicians, it was not too crowded and they played some nice oldies.
Saturday morning we took in the Mesa Verde Arts and Crafts Festival, where the girl shown was dancing in the old Chapin Mesa campfire circle on Chapin Mesa. She if part of the Oak Canyon band of dancers from Jemez Pueblo.
