I am posting this from Ned’s laptop, sitting at an outdoor cafe in Telluride, Colorado. I am feeling so good, it is hard to believe. Mountains everywhere. It is just nuts, how breathtakingly gorgeous it is. I hope Cape Cod is not jealous of how much I love Colorado.

The tiniest bit of Natguilt, but I have talked to Stephanie everyday so far and she tells me how smiley he is, doing horseback, swimming at Glenwood Springs hot springs and doing big water slides. He left me a dear little message last night on my cell, while we were taking a gondola to the top of the mountain to look at stars!!!!! His message said, “Hi, who’s this? It’s Nat. I love you [this was prompted, I could hear her doing it, but I care not. I heard his Sweet Guy voice and I saved it.]

I will try to post Tabblos of each day, and I have Day One, the flight and arrival in Aspen, when Nat was still with the fambly of five. I have trouble posting your comments so don’t be offended if they sit in Blogger limbo for a few more days, it is not you, it’s me.

Thanks all of you for pushing me to go on this trip. I feel ten years younger (which makes me 15!)

Tabblo: Colorado Trip:  Day 1

On Saturday we flew to Denver, to spend a week in Colorado while Nat went to a camp in Aspen.  Here is how the first day went. … See my Tabblo>


so glad you are in Telluride-it is so pretty there. Is the mountain air not the best? there may be no ocean within 1000 miles but the air in the mountains can do wonders-that total silence when you are out there is my favorite-especially when the wind blows through the trees. there is a really cool house there-that sits on a cliff with a waterfall-I have it as my screensaver. too cool. good to hear Nat is happy-the pool in Glanwood Springs is huge-warm and total fun for kiddos of all ages. we go in the dead of winter-the hot water is great. too bad you are notthere when the film festival is-it is great fun. nice of you to share pictures too-fun to see!!!

God I’ve forgotten how goregous Colorado is. It’s breathtaking. I lived up, up, up in the mountains for a summer two years ago with a friend in Estes Park CO, and it was amazing to walk out your front door every day. I’m sure Cape Cod’s not too jealous! 🙂

Nat sounds happy!
