This is going to be amazing! I lived in Silver City and my youngest son was born there. My oldest daughter, went to college there and received her BA in biology. She too loves the landscape and all the beauty Silver city has to offer. I wish I could join you guys but work has me tied down to here. Please take a lot of pictures and enlighten me with your work… Have a great time and be sure to see the cemetery that used to be down town and then moved, yes moved to a new area and Billy the Kid’s mother is buried there…

How fun Dawn! Hope to be able to at least say “Hi” while you are here! You can see one of my pieces at the Copper Quail gallery on the street in the adobe wall. Mark and I created the wall for the gallery owner at the time, on Texas and Yankie. Hope you have a good turn out and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy our town!

Rachel, absolutely we must see each other! I can’t wait to see your piece at the Copper Qual gallery. Your “Work that is Real” piece is right outside my writing room. It now has several inches of snow on and around it. Beautiful! You and Mark created the wall? I think you showed me pictures. Can’t wait to see and can’t wait to see YOU. xoxo Dawn

Susan and I will miss you at this event. Thank you so very much for making the drive in Oregon to attend. I just connected with Susan and she said to send you a Hello and a hug. We’ll be thinking about you during this time of deep writing, deep retreat, and deep friendship.
