Summer has arrived in Northern New Mexico. But for the first time in two years, we have a week of light rain, low temps and absolute joy. The landscape goes from brown to green, almost instantly, as the patient things that grow do their best to hold their glee. Me, I have my ups and downs. Long-term illness isn’t for the faint of heart. Just when things feel great they can turn for no apparent reason. But is this enough to keep us from doing something, anything? No, never. But success comes in many flavors.
