I love holiday lights, and I’ve seen some spectacular ones: the Phoenix zoo, Tucson’s Winter Haven neighborhood, Carlsbad from a boat on the Pecos. Now Santa Fe has a small but very sweet array at the Botanical Garden on Museum Hill. It is elegantly lit with limited but repeating motifs and globes that change color.
Best of all, Christy Hengst’s ceramic birds are in residence, including many of the flock that began its existence as part of “Wendover Landing” at 516 Gallery, with images of Wendover, Utah and text from my poems and one-line haiku.
I happen to be lucky enough to have two in my garden, so I know the shape is enhanced by being outdoors.
It is very festive and I highly recommend a visit.

In addition, Christy’s new project–mugs based on specific places and peoples’ recollection of place in Santa Fe–will be on display at Tune-Up, our local bistro mecca, this Saturday 2-5pm. Come early to buy your favorites! You can also participate in the project and fill out an interview.
I feel very blessed and inspired to be connected to these events!
