Land of Enchantment

Land of Enchantment

Hey Writer Pals Worldwide,

Next time you are moseying around the Santa Fe area, I suggest you take a drive east, through the Glorieta Pass, down Route 50 to the Village of Pecos, where there is a honest-to-goodness river, AND the Hummingbird Cafe.

When you get to the Pecos intersection – you’ll know when you are there – turn left. The cafe is across from St. Anthony’s Church. You’ll find it. Cafe is open Thursday through Monday 9 til 3.

It is a throwback, the real deal. Say Hi to Tess and Nancy, eat some food, hang out, buy some local art and crafts. Write a scene in your novel, while sitting at one of the funky tables. I like the one with the carrot-print tablecloth.

Last Saturday, the marvelous Tess put together an Author’s Night – the first time this cultural experience happened in Pecos, as far as we know. Four authors read for 30 enthusiastic locals. I was glad to lead the program by reading the first chapter of The Magical Mrs. Iptweet and Me. I gotta thank the sound guy – his microphone was so good, none of my P’s popped. It was brilliant.

And books were sold that night. Thanks, Pecos!

I love the Hummingbird Cafe vibe. Writing and Storytelling groups are forming, planning to meet there. Artists are everywhere.

Will try to get a photo of the Hummingbird to post soon.

Write on!
