First time in Albuquerque since my dad's death. Glad it was to celebrate my mom's 88th birthday. Had a nice time seeing everyone. Nieces and nephews are growing up. Beginning to resemble real people. Good weather there and back, but didn't see a lick of wildlife. Nothing. The San Luis Valley was just starting to wake up, though the countryside was still ochre and umber and only a little touch of gold.
Got some writing done this morning. Came reluctantly after the hiatus, but all in all the effort bore fruit.
Pretty day today. Beautiful, in fact. Cool, sunny and nothing but blue skies.
