“I was trying to write then and I found the greatest difficulty, aside from knowing truly what you really felt, rather than what you were supposed to feel, and had been taught to feel, was to put down what really happened in action; what were the actual things which produced the emotion that you experienced.”

~ Ernest Hemingway, Death in the Afternoon

    Marianne, I have a series of barbed wire photos… most of them from the Middle East. This one transported me straight back there. I feel such kinship to you and these photographs. All the ones from Taos capture such hope and promise…

      Roxanne, I hope you get to come to New Mexico before too long. This is a place to sit still and find your own yearnings.

      Julie, Thank you! I haven’t taken or posted photos for a long time. It’s refreshing.

  2. I love how the barbed wire cuts right across, like a jagged knife wound…and the barren yet alive plant. So desert-infested.
