The acequia system in northern New Mexico is centuries old but is alive and well, providing the life blood for farmers both large and small. A branch of this system runs through Casa Gallina in Taos. Owner Richard Spera says that regardless how much ice builds on the surface during the winter, the acequia water always flows beneath it. Double clicking will enable you to see the ice detail.
Even icicles eventually change form and release waster to the earth.
So as the curtain is raised on 2013, may the water of life nourish and inspire us to respect, cherish, and nurture all that is Planet Earth.
until next year,
