So today is Christmas here and I am 6 months off from when Dad's letters are written, he is in June and just turned 26. Here we had a good week, took the Railrunner from Albuquerque to Santa Fe, we went to the museums on Wed (free day for NM seniors - I now qualify). I was interested in seeing the photography exhibit of contemplative photos of New Mexico, some were from Christ in the Desert. Along with them were pages from the St.Johns Illustrated bible, these were also interesting though I liked the black and white pictures of NM better. Then we went to the Art museum and looked at some pictures that Tim had remembered from childhood and also some woodblock prints. In Albuquerque we visited with friends and celebrated Hanukkah. Today we went to Meeting and sang and worshiped and feasted on treats that people brought. In the afternoon we skyped with Jenny and Chris in Houston and called and spoke with Carol. For our big meal we made curry and an onion dish and sweetpotatoes, a regular vegan feast. Quite a wonderful day all around. I enjoyed dad's advice too.
