Taos: Believe It or Not

I love my yearly, weekend trip to Taos, New Mexico. It's a quick 5hour drive from Aspen (and if you don't like Eminem, you better bring your own CD's in my car) over b e a u t i f u l Independence Pass, down through reptile and alien gardens, and shazam...we are off the grid.

There is no place quite like this place on earth, and there is not quite the perfect words to describe it, but still you must fall in love with this little adobe town. By the time I left work on Friday, I was soooooooo spent. By the time I pulled into my home parking garage Sunday evening, I was inspired, revived, enthusiastic and energetic! It must be the water, or the coffee, or the rocks in the water and coffee. I'm serious.

Seriously, there is this little coffee shop with a 'Rock Bar'. For an extra dollar, you can choose to put a rock in your coffee. And for an extra $2.50, you can put three rocks in your coffee to make a 'Rocktail'. Now, if you know me, you know that I have put a dollar in a basket that changed my life, so I can't say that I'm not a believer but at the time, this seemed a bit.....mmmmm......Taosy? Yet I purchased a latte with a Carnelian rock: will bring creativity and passion. A confidence booster, Carnelian can help give you the vitality needed to make things happen. I love it. I'm inspired to host a 'Rocktail Party'.

  1. Great blog. They should have a rock that cures the skepticism ;)

    Well, whether these rocks have mystical powers or it's just the power of the mind, it sure sounds worthy of giving it a try. After all, when in Taos…

    Just sip carefully
