Wednesday January 1 to Saturday January 4: It is great having some days to stay put at our Elephant Butte New Mexico State Park campsite with no business to take care of and no errands to run.
One afternoon Clifford and I saunter down to the beach from our campsite on the bluff above Elephant Butte Lake. It is interesting to notice the rock formations, which are most likely a function of receding water, sort of how stalactites are formed, but horizontal action.
We play our instruments outside, not really a warm temperatures, but pleasant enough on the lee side of Cougar in the sun and out of the wind.
I’ve felt that I’m not finding a rhythm to my morning “quiet time,” but the insights of a photographer friend brings an understanding that the time I spend seeking and sharing the beauty of nature is in itself the connection to Source that I am desiring.
We are grateful to be here with the lake below us, sunshine on the solar panels, and decent cell service for the hotspot: email, blog posting, photo editing, posting photos for family and friends, and my Higher Vibration Photo Series are among the things that happen when we have power and internet.
A side note: Australia is on fire and Trump is sending troops to Kuwait. I have concerns for my son-in-law who is stationed nearby.
