Day 1 Moving Beth Adventure (part 2)

These are not exactly in order... this is the view from the plane
goodbye for now, Pacific Ocean...

you can't have a trip to the airport without Downtown LA and traffic
there were no lines at the airport ... so I ended up with much more time at the airport
What do you see in this picture? Do you see the green animal with red teeth??
texture ... as we were landing in El Paso
gorgeous views from the airplane as we landed in El Paso
Sage outside Beth's museum ... Las Cruces
and a sculpture outside the museum, Las Cruces
Mountains outside of Cruces
We had a light show all the way to Socorro...
New Mexico wanted to make sure Beth would remember to come back...

including a double rainbow...
amazing ...

Poetry Thursday, Rumi obsession continues...

Hardship may 
dishearten at first, 
but every hardship 
passes away. 
All despair is 
followed by hope; 
all darkness is 
followed by sunshine.
~ Rumi

Day 1 of Moving Beth Adventure

12 hour travel day for me starting 6:30a (pacific) and ending 7:30p (mountain).
Starting point
Favorite view from train 
Stop 1: Los Angeles Union Station. These are a few of the gorgeous details. 
was posting this from my phone where are the pictures live ... and it decided to not save the last half, so, there will have to be a part 2 to Day 1... as I try to keep up with the movements.  Next up will be travel day 2 (to Denver) after our resting day in ABQ (no pics, sorry).

Poetry Thursday

Great peace
is found
in life's
little pleasures.

Got to spend time with these lovelies last week... truly this is pleasure.

Pre-road trip planning

Some of my preparations seem routine, others not so much:
1) wash clothes
2) research road food 
3) choose reading material
4) finish work
5) watch The Last Mimzy with niece
6) go through cochinadas to give to rummage sale
7) order supplements for dad
8) order office supplies for mom
9) cook three course meal and make another two dishes for tomorrow. Oh and appetizers. 
10) check in and print boarding pass
11) pack
12) sleep
See you on the road - and for Poetry Thursday

Poetry Thursday

Your task 
is not 
to seek 
for love, 

but merely 
to seek 
and find 
all the barriers 

within yourself 
that you 
have built 
against it.
~ Rumi

 Never lose hope, my heart, miracles dwell in the invisible.

 Going through my sister's things, we came across a camera with a photo chip (I can't remember the technical term). 
 These gems were the silver lining of the grief inducing trips down memory lane.
 Seeing her little love through her eyes...
 imagining her asking him to hold up the mountains...
 her capturing his attention to fishing....
 and that face that leaves you wondering what travesuras he was plotting...
