Santa Fe Springtime

We made it to Santa Fe Tuesday afternoon after three days on the road, so were delighted to find this final condo/townhome is exceeding our expectations. Our first sunrise here . . .

Love the classic southwest style bands of color. Even the sky is participating in the artsy atmosphere around here. Santa Fe has a unique look . . .

. . . and some unique people . . .

. . . so we’ve been enjoying our usual walks and people watching.

Spring is definitely underway here . . . Santa Fe Crabapple. . . as my allergies can attest. It seems especially apt this week, since spring is such a vibrant picture of rebirth and resurrection.

Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in springtime∼Martin Luther

If the truth is that after death there comes a negatively spiritual life, an eternity of mystical experience, what more misleading way of communicating it could possibly be found than the appearance of a human form which eats broiled fish? ∼C.S. Lewis

Last year we were in La Rochelle for Holy Week, which was beautiful, and this is another special place . . .

The Loretto Chapel has possibly the most beautiful staircase anywhere . . .

It seems to lift my eyes to heaven every time I see it. Click on this link for the story of the miraculous staircase at the end of the post.

So as we pause our wandering for a little while, we are thinking of all of you who have come along with us, virtually and occasionally in person. We have been delighted by meeting new friends, saddened by the partings, and blessed by the reunions.

Every parting gives a foretaste of death, every reunion a hint of the resurrection. ∼Arthur Schopenhauer

Definitely looking forward to some reunions! And as we celebrate the resurrection here in Santa Fe, and anticipate being reunited with our Fort Collins friends, we wish all of you, near and far, a very happy and blessed Easter.

He is risen indeed!
