This is how you watch the #sunset in the #mountains #taos #newmexico
This blog is aptly titled as I have just done the crazy most spontaneous thing a person can do … besides wake up with a hankering for peanut butter and skydiving in a storm… I sold my possessions and moved to Taos, New Mexico.
When I arrived here I was sleeping in a tent in Kit Carson National Forest. I won’t lie, it was fucking cold. Lows at night were in the 30s. I then found this awesome room in the Laughing Horse Inn. It really isn’t an Inn anymore but like a long term hostel of sorts. There are 6-10 people that live here. We all have our own small private rooms and we share the living room, kitchen, and bathrooms…oh and awesome gardens. It was a printing press when it was built in the 1800s. They printed the Laughing Horse paper. It was added onto in the 20-30s and famous revolutionary people lived here and wrote and planned and plotted here. The Earthship part was built in the 70s and is full of ivy. This is the part I live in.
I found a job a day after finding a place to live. Housekeeping at a local hotel. I don’t mind the cleaning at all. I find it to be very therapeutic…however the pay is crap and they nitpick to the exact detail of what plug to use for the lamp on the nightstand. In order to put up with that bullshit I would need at least $12 an hour. So I am in the looks for a new job until I can get my New Mexico massage license.
It has been interesting to note my reactions and the energy here. I feel like I am home. I am just missing my friends and daughter so much. My daughter will be here soon, I hope, and so I am meeting people often and hope to find some Taos friends. The energy here has been amazing. People really are kind here as well. I can’t tell you how many people have offered me free weed. So opposite from Oklahoma. People here have been very generous. I hope to make a positive impact here as well.
