Heavier but not as healthy.

Well, we arrived back in DC on Friday evening without incident. And of course I woke up Saturday sick, the victim of being in germ-filled planes and around lots of children. I haven't left the apartment since we returned from a brief stop in two 17th St. bars on Friday night, and I'm going sort of stir crazy. But I should be well enough to go to New Year's Eve at Shannon's house tomorrow. Here's hoping, anyway.

Handful of photos from NM:

Fantastic photos! I haven't had a tamale since I was a kid. My great-aunt made them, and I naively said, "Those were great enchiladas, Auntie," and she retorted, "Well, they were even better tamales, Gabe."

Admittedly this is all confusing, because so many people prepare things differently. Apparently most of the world knows enchiladas as fillings wrapped in corn tortillas, but I grew up with them being laid flat in a Pyrex in layers like a casserole. Not that you can even tell that was their original form in this photo, anyway. :)

The Light Sanctuary! I absolutely loved that place.

Happy New Year, my friend.

Happy New Year, Mark!

I had never heard of the light sanctuary until last week, so I'm glad we got to check it out. But I still need to get inside that damn castle for a tour!

If you ever figure out how to get inside that castle, let me know!! :)

Here's one of the photos I took inside the light sanctuary a few years ago:

I'm sick, too. I think I got it from my nephew. Hope you feel better!

That array looks really cool. That reminds me of the movie Contact.

Happy New Year!

It was the site where exterior shots of Contact were filmed. I feel better today and hope you do too!
