Traveling to Taos….

What is it about Taos, New Mexico? Magic is in the air: the Sacred mountain where God was created, the art of Georgia O’Keeffe and Ansel Adams, the birth of the collective consciousness of Carl Jung, daring novelists D.H. Lawrence and Willa Cather. Early Spanish history…the uncomfortable clash of animism and Catholicism. The Rio Grande snakes across the volcanic field underlying 12,500 feet of mountain. Taos is truly the top of the world.

On Wednesday we set off for Taos and will live there for three months to discover the magic that still reins, more subtly now than in the 20’s and 30’s. And, what for?

To research the third historical novel in the trilogy beginning with Cairo Diary: an Egyptian fable, continuing into Etruscan Evenings set in Italy and now showing up in Taos. The mysterious letters of D.H. Lawrence challenge Justine’s sense of self. What fun.

Keep track of our travels and discoveries on this blog….Linda
