Sometimes, he shares a photo of New Mexico.

A fellow blogger mentioned feeling drawn to New Mexico. I’m sharing this photo for her.

I took this picture myself in August, 2010. I don’t recall the exact location, but it was somewhere on the drive back to Albuquerque from the Valles Caldera.

Of course, not all of New Mexico looks like this. The area where I live (just a few miles from the Texas border) is flat and generally tree-free except where people have deliberately planted them. It’s not a desert (in fact, I really wish the weather in the summer was a bit less humid — it wasn’t like this when I first moved here), but it’s nothing like the alpine meadows and mixed forest you’ll find up in the Sandias, for example. (Portales is near the western edge of the Llano Estacado, one of the flattest places on the whole planet. If you don’t like difference in elevation, hills/mountains, or anything that can block your view of a flat horizon meeting the huge blue sky, this is a good part of New Mexico to be in.)

About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.
