Greetings from snow-bound San Cristobal. This week a coyote watches me from the sagebrush along the Rio Grande in Pilar, NM. A flashback to a photo tour/workshop five years ago.
This week I’m recovering from surgery on my left foot! Had I realized the lack of mobility I’m experiencing, I would have prepared a post last week. So, when I threw a virtual (numerical) dart at the archives this image came up. It’s one of my favorites so I’m putting it out here. I posted a close-up version five years ago, but I like how this more expansive view represents the whole encounter.
I hope you’ll forgive the single image post this week.
… and as always, thank you for looking. G

Hello Geraint, I really love the choice to include the expanse of landscape, the textures and colors are just gorgeous. The gaze of the coyote feels entirely self possessed, such a strong, clear presence. Beautiful piece, captures so much.
Sending healing juju your way, G
I think we can learn a lot about being present from coyotes. Thank you, Gianna. G

Thank you, Alison. I hope you are well. G
I’ve been pretty much horizontal with my foot elevated after surgery to repair things. It’s finally feeling better. I should be able to put weight on it after the coming weekend and walk without crutches.
It’s quite a process!
Still a ways to go, six more weeks., but getting there.
Thank you everyone for checking in. It means a lot. Stay well.
