Doors in New Mexico

In addition to the narrow winding streets in Santa Fe and Taos, I have an appreciation of the doorways of the adobe homes in these old cities. Here are a few that I want to share. These have not been Photoshopped or edited.

There is a strong presence of Our Lady of Guadalupe on buildings and in artwork. Some homes have small mosaic images or a fresco of the beautiful mother. Since I have a strong goddess practice, I find that she looks more like Ma Kali, who stands on Shiva or the ego.

Coming from Wisconsin, I find gates and fences made of branches to be a unique architectural feature. These structures are coyote fences. For anyone who has ever heard the singing, howling and calling of a pack of coyote during the night, the concept of a strong and secure coyote fence can give a sense of security.

Thank You to Wild Magnolia who created a nice little blogger party for me here in the internet ethers and on her blog site. I am happy to meet Teri and Terra, both bloggers from California who came to my little blog site through Wild Magnolia. Thank you Ashling, for also attending the little etheric gathering via Wild Magnolia. I appreciate meeting with other women and will continue to come to Wild Magnolia, My Grandma's Soul (Jo) and Karen L's blogs.


  1. Love these entryways. They could be the foundation for a fabulous book.

  2. Oh what Beautiful images of Santa Fe. I too am drawn to the beautiful old Buildings and especially those made of adobe. Our Home is almost 100 years old and built of local Rock, Railroad Ties and Adobe... that type of Architecture lends itself well to Desert living and lasts.

    I Love images of the Virgin of Guadalupe and I have a Tile Mosaic of the Blessed Mother that I have yet to install, it was created by a gifted Mexican Artist & I just have to find the right place for it.
