Leaving Los Angeles, at dawn.

Palm Springs wind farm.

Somewhere in the tail end of Arizona or the beginning of New Mexico.

This turned into a real hum-dinger.

Just outside of Las Cruces.

I had a big thing here about life, and directions, and all sorts of furrowed brow type things. Too much for this morning. Instead, I’ll tell you that I am drinking rocket-fuel coffee, enjoying the tiny shampoos, and absent-mindedly watching the end of Sabrina. It kills me: they had to try to make Julia Ormond look homely, so what do they do?

Stick some glasses on her. Ah well. Nicole Kidman earned some cred with me when she started wearing glasses to the Oscars.

These amazing mountains are right outside my door, so I’m going to get ready and then see if my meagre photography skills can do them any kind of justice. But if the pictures make them look too picturesque, I’ll just do what the pros do: stick some glasses on them.

  1. Ahhh I love wind farms! They are amazing, I don't get why people don't like them!

    Although a friend of mine is doing a PhD on the psychological effects of living near windfarms.. apparently the noise affects people, and she's helping to design new, quieter blades. I still love them though!

    Hope the rest of the trip was fun!

  2. I love the mountains! And the clouds! And the shadows of the clouds on the mountains! So are you out and about for fun? I'm envious, for just a moment.

    Have fun! Take it all in.

  3. p.s. Yeah, I don't understand that glasses thing. Glasses can make certain people look hot. Unless they're thick and huge, then it might be time to upgrade B)

  4. So this is your New Mexico State U visit? Are you holding a Masters class? Looking into teaching possibilities? Inquiring minds want to know! 🙂 BEAUTIFUL pics Emily – drive safe please!
    PS I can't WAIT to get me some thick rimmed, New York style retro glasses – they are all the rage you know. I'm only half kidding here! 🙂
