We reached Marfa after an arduous travel day that started at 300AM in Maine and included a mad family dash through Houston airport to catch a flight for ELP, and a wonderful three-hour drive across the desert with our chere amie Valerie. Glad to get here. Spent our first night ever in our house. Pat Rogers had parked our Chevy outside the Texas theater on Highland Avenue. At 700AM H & I walked over in the dark and brought the truck home. Yesterday evening was glowing when we headed out on the Pinto Canyon Road.
