Impromptu Dinner For Two



As the sun sets on the beautiful

Sangre de Cristo Mountains of Santa Fe . . .





The table is set for 

an impromptu dinner for two.



Candlelight and perhaps 

a zesty Margarita on the rocks.




The vibrant woven threads of a Mexican serape,

Talavera pottery, and flatware with a "twist"

provides interest and texture to the glass top table.




White cotton napkins tucked in small bowls,

one mustard yellow - the other rusty red . . .





Add a pop of bright color to the white dinner plates

rimmed in indigo and topped with fanciful floral salad plates.



A quiet spot for evening

 conversation with one's companion . . .



As each reflect on the day spent enjoying

the sights, sounds, and flavors of Santa Fe.

The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.
