Forever Taos, I Hope

The scenery around Taos often moves us to stop and take it in, wishing always that we had our camera, and grateful that the beauty is ever present.   On this rare occasion we had our camera, and the sunset supplied one of it's more awe inspiring shows.   Though I think that I should never want to live outside the forest again, the view of the mountains from a distance is always enough to make me consider my certainty.

I can't imagine living in any other place that this, and for now it seems that I will be granted the ability to stay.  This week Jeff completed his sixth interview for a company we expect to offer employment soon.  Though it will allow us our ideal location, and the income to breathe enough to enjoy it, it will come at the price of Jeff's freedom and connection to the land around us.  It's something that we need as desperately as we wish it could got another way.  But, if all goes well, we will have bought ourselves time anyway.  Wish us luck in this endeavor?  And then the strength of will to manage the strain of living two lives at once?

Sending good vibes your way. I hope the gig pans out for Jeff, six interviews?! Gosh darn the mountains are beautiful with that light frosting of snow.

I love your blog and I appreciate the honesty in your writing. Things aren't always rainbows and sugar plums. I wish and hope that Jeff gets the job and he can still strike a balance. Thank you for the glorious pictures. I have never stood at the base of a mountain... it is something I hope to see someday...
