Turning to Other Topics


Sara has added to her Cheerleader Extraordinaire persona by becoming a Jumper Really-Good. Steven and I enjoyed two hours of running jumping shouting laughing healthy good-looking teenagers in the midst of one of Albuquerque’s finest spring windstorms last evening. It was great fun actually. What makes individual sports so much more interesting and difficult than team sports is the competing against yourself aspect.

Sara’s a beautiful high jumper and made it to the last round before downing the bar (or whatever you call it when you knock the bar down). And then you get back up and start all over on a new day.

A few photos before turning back to my new-apartment obsession and neglected writing. But…today…finally a writing day. Tearing myself away from fiddling with placement of this rug, that tchotchke. Writing.

First Sara:


Cheering the Cheerleader

Got a D+ in grandmothering last night. Went to the La Cueva game to see gorgeous granddaughter cheer but couldn’t handle the cold. I did manage to stay through half of the first quarter so here are a few shaky shots of cheering Sara.
