The Road to Taos
|We traveled to Santa Fe for the annual
meeting of The American Society for Aesthetics.
While we attended some excellent sessions [A conversation between
feminist artist Judy Chicago and feminist art critic
Lucy Lippard and a meditation on "Shades of
Blue" were among the highlights. David's paper on "Aesthetics
& Ethics" went well too!], we have to admit that our central
focus was the stunning environment, the native cultures and EATING!
Food first! We had an exceptional dinner at The Anasazi
Restaurant [In The
Inn of the Anasazi, named for, and partly owned and run by, the Anasazi,
whose tribe were the predecessors of the pueblo Native Americans.]
On the last night we ate at Corn
Dance Café, which specializes in Native American foods.
Not as good as Anasazi, but delicious and in pleasant surroundings. In
Taos we ate lunch at La Folie,
an over-the-top postmodern bistro with an southwestern/asian flair. Sally
also ate lunch in Santa Fe at the local hangout, Tia Sophia's, where her
server was dressed as a nun! It *was* halloween.... but she looked
and acted the part!
