It's a long story.
The short version is this: In two weeks, I am going with my daughter to check out the College of Santa Fe located, quite coincidentally, in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The trip was brought on by one of those - "we need to come to a screeching halt and investigate a change of direction" - decisions brought on by a serious case of buyer's remorse regarding college choice for this coming school year. Not wanting my daughter to be miserable and not wanting to invest my life savings in a mistake, we have regrouped - off to Santa Fe.
A definite upside of the situation is an opportunity to visit a place I have never been. After completing the tedious process of making plane reservations and finding a quaint little adobe motel called The Silver Saddle, I suddenly realized I am excited about the trip. I've discovered a wealth of interesting places to visit and it appears the city has a reputation for being a charming artist's haven.
