A week ago today we spent an exhilarating morning at Meow Wolf's House of Eternal Return. We met Bonnie's college roommate the day prior, and spent an afternoon with her at the Georgia O'Keefe Museum. Both museums represent creators who were "out of the box" for their time; both reinforced the notion that it is ok to be wild once in awhile and to follow your heart.
When we arrived at opening at Meow Wolf there was a line; when we left, the line was twice as long. Moral of the story: if you plan to go, get there at opening.
The best part of the weekend was spent being with Bonnie's former college roommate, Lynn.
The Holy Spirit of God rested upon our two months in Las Cruces.
We met Anthe Ruth last year! At that time we saw her at Woodcarvers every session we attended. At the end of our stay she gave us oven towels she had made—the ones which hang from an oven or refrigerator handle. This year we discovered the wonderful relationship she has with her son.
Travel back in time 50 years. Macrame was the fad. Anthe and her son published a book of phenomenal macrame creations, each one he had designed and built. Traveling forward in time she and her son started a venture of photographing melting flowers after having been frozen in a pail of water. The photographs were sold in a Santa Fe shop. Today, her son is a doctor. Today, Anthe continues her art in the form of wood carving.
