cloudy taos is just about as beautiful as sunny taos, for sure. it rained on and off today, here in the mountains and most of the things i had on my schedule were outside projects. so one adapts... one beer, yoga, a bike ride thru the town looking at the clouds, and two beers a dozen:)
tomorrow the howell creative is officially open, i open the doors from 12 to 6, which really doesn't change my day much except i'm locked into the studio. hoepfully i can drag some folks off the street and back to the studio? its been a fun start up, and i've had some great support already. tonight a toast to my last night of unemployment... cheers taos.
great day on kit carson road and in the park... old truck show that i missed:) bikers a plenty and a rumor that jack nicholson was in town and going to be on a bike, for dennis hopper night. no spotting and later we heard that he was in a car, which makes sense at 80 years old. the damn band played in the plaza and me and my two beautiful friends listened from the roof top, ending the evening with easy rider on netflix:)
two snows this month in taos, but always sun:) don't think you'll hear me complain much about the weather. there are always good things to look at around here. today there are tons of people walking around town for the lilac festivals... to bad the snows froze out the buds and we have no lilacs!! later today there will be a swarm of motor cyclists for the dennis hooper day, memorial.... camera is charged and ready.
it is the one week count down for me, and if i can get the sign makers to get in gear, im all set to open. i may have a soft opening (keg of beer) this weekend, and have a grand opening in june. fingers crossed on this endeavor, stay tuned.
one of the unexpected joys i have been getting out of taos, is being on the bike at least once a day. its flatter here so i get out on more hard rides, and living down just tempts you all day to be out on the cruiser. today i took the long way on the cruiser to get some paint. the west side of town has some groovy views and the traffic is nil. reminds me of a good ole church hollar ride with my boonies. if you come and visit, bring your bike it is one of the better ways to see taos, and its all you need downtown.
