they were waiting

This city — Santa Fe — has wonderful museums. We bought the four day pass and have been making good use of it. This morning we went to the Georgia O’Keefe Museum (not part of the pass) and spent time among her beautiful landscapes, her flowers, and watched a short film on her time in Abiquiu where we’ll go in a few days. A couple more hours in the Museum of History, then up to Museum Hill (you follow the old Santa Fe trail…) where there are more museums still. The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture was extraordinary — the exhibits of the pueblo pottery, the baskets, the sense of deep history, in place, and of place. Small bags of seeds, water jars, blankets of vivid reds and blues. We also went to the Museum of International Folk Art which was overwhelming. Gallery after gallery of toys, textiles, puppet theaters, kites, and (almost) best of all, a gallery of wooden animals from Mexico, many of whom we recognized from home.
