Painting of road, mountain, and rain, Santa Fe, New Mexico alvin September 10, 2019 - 5:11pm

I don’t remember exactly where I saw this painting, but I know it was somewhere in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Probably inside a large hotel I can’t remember the name of at the moment.

History of the Eagles (an American band) alvin August 18, 2019 - 10:06am

I had a chance to watch part of the History of the Eagles when my RAV4 broke down and left me stranded in New Mexico, and it was good. If you like The Eagles, you’ll like the documentary.

The road from Colorado to Santa Fe, New Mexico alvin July 21, 2019 - 9:04am

Here’s part of the road (I-25) from Colorado to Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Driving from Boulder, Colorado to Santa Fe, New Mexico alvin July 20, 2019 - 9:05am

If you ever need to drive from the Boulder/Denver, Colorado area to (or from) Santa Fe, New Mexico, the gray route on the left in this image is the most scenic, the one to take if you only get one shot at it. Lots of mountain views and ranches, and many small towns.

Once you get off of I-25, the blue road that goes through Taos is also very scenic, and is particularly pretty in the winter. I usually take the gray road back to Colorado, and the Taos road down to Santa Fe.


Santa Fe, New Mexico art museum sidewalk

This is a photo of a sidewalk in front of an art museum in Santa Fe, New Mexico. (Sorry, I don’t remember the name of the museum and I’m too lazy atm to look it up.)

I applied a Gaussian Blur effect to the cars on the right and the bright stuff at the end of the corridor (using Gimp), and it’s amazing how much that makes the rest of the image “pop” out. Nothing else has been altered.

Tiger Eyes, by Judy Blume alvin June 16, 2019 - 2:15pm

I’m surprised that nobody I know knows the story Tiger Eyes, either the book by Judy Blume or the movie based on the book.

Probably the main theme of the book is about people who are afraid. Presumably they’re afraid of dying, and the result is that they’re afraid of living. Meanwhile, a teenage girl who has good reason to be afraid encounters these people who are afraid of life, and eventually realizes that a fear of life is no way to live. Despite a horrific thing that has happened in her recent past, she makes a conscious decision to live her life.
