Indian Market 2017 was amazing. I somehow found myself in the best position to observe and enjoy the diverse cultures within the Native American population. A highlight was jewelry shopping with the legendary actress, Ally McGraw from movies such as “Love Story” and “The Getaway” with Steve McQueen. The latter was filmed at the prison in my hometown, Huntsville, Texas.
One of the coolest parts of my New Mexico experience is watching the Hollywood invasion. Recently, our Albuquerque office was surrounded by the crew filming the new series, “The Brave”, starring Anne Heche and Mike Vogel, produced by Universal Television and Keshet Studios.
I happened to have a great vantage point from my local office window to capture the crew in action.
I live for off the road adventures and my latest trek was to Shiprock, New Mexico. I had heard that it was a must see place in the state so I’m thrilled to have seen this site.
Since my college days, I have had a fascination with the artist, Georgia O’Keeffe. Already an accomplished artist, O’Keeffe moved from New York to New Mexico after visiting and becoming enamored by the place during the 1940s. I get it, the landscapes are breathtaking and the colors of the mountains change constantly depending on the season or time of day. Here are just a few shots from my day trip.
I know that I am fortunate to call one of my work offices New Mexico. We accomplished so much this week getting ready for open enrollment 2016 for the health plans. I enjoy working with my team, and not a bad backdrop for work either.
