Under Santa Fe Skies

by Susan Tungate

A Drive to Taos on Sunday Morning

Santa Fe has been cold and windy but on Sunday morning the sun emerged and I did, too. I drove to Taos and back in the morning, just to see the Rio Grande curve with the mountains, to view wild sky extend forever, to feel my small place in the midst of it all.

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” Albert Einstein
