Tim and Laurie Price live on a magical spot in the Land of Enchantment. Tim shares a lot of fantastic photos at his blog, Off Center & Not Even. I was honored when he said I could “claim” one of the trees at their place. He gave me a choice of some grand trees. I nearly chose that beautiful blue spruce (click over to see it), but the first image (see at the end of this post) of a pair of splendidly gnarly old trees called to me. You can see all of the trees I could have chosen in Tim’s post (link at the end of this post).
Years ago, Tim was inspired by “Atonement, Tennessee” to create his imagining of the house and graveyard. He also reviewed the book in that post. I’ve wanted to write “Desert Atonement” ever since. Click the link. Notice the cat (perched on the tall white grave stone) with a black feather in the image above. It is always a wonderful thing to me, when someone can see my stories in their own life or location.
Anyhow, here is the rest of Tim’s post with all the trees, beginning with the pair I claimed. That setting, with the shed and the truck also makes me think of Atonement, TN. I hope you’ll click over and visit him. Hugs on the wing!
Teagan, of Teagan’s Books, and I have been following each other for years, and for some reason, Teagan had not claimed a tree. Here are the remaining cottonwoods on the property and a Blues Spruce she can choose from. If none of these seem fitting, there are a lot more trees in the bosque.
