Favorite Places

Tent Rocks National Monument 8

Tent Rocks National Monument – ever hear of it? It’s an out of the way spot between Albuquerque and Santa Fe full of beautiful and unusual rock formations. I’ve been there before and I’m planning to go again. I’m looking forward to it. It’s a favorite place for me full of happy memories. Don’t you love getting out of town?

    a kitchen table with porcelain top and sturdy chairs,
    all of these are favorite places,

But really my favorite place is the nook between your arm and chest, where I fit ever so perfectly— a sight of beauty and the feeling of shelter all in one. Never out of season, always warm and inviting…
