Glimpses from Taos

This is the Mabel Dodge Luhan House where the writers Spa was held.

I stayed in the Gatehouse which was a separate building. You can see my car through the archway. It was just a short walk away from the main house.

This was the door to my room. Luckily we never had to use the ladder.

The top floor was all glass and here you can see the chicken sculptures that adorned the building.

A close up of one of the chickens.

I loved these birdhouses, I took lots of pictures of them. You'll be seeing more pictures in the days to come. They had pigeons in them.

A picture of our little sitting room. I spent a lot of time sitting on that couch and writing. It really was a peaceful place to be.

The Pergola was a little shaded area where our coaches were during our writing sessions. If you needed to discuss a project or needed help with blocks or whatever this was the place to go. It was very nice and I got some great advice in this very spot.

Here is Kelley my roommate, and she is from Oklahoma. She has a really sweet soul and a good heart. She wrote poetry at the Spa and it was beautiful.

Here is is Mary-Antoinette from Seattle, she is a professor in English at Seattle University. She was our housemate and another beautiful poet that I really enjoyed spending time with.

That's enough for today...

It looks absolutely peaceful and serene. I can see it would be a great place to write but also to do art there. I'd feel very inspired I think.
