I am a writing student at the amazing Santa Fe Community College (NM).

My Sony CyberShot goes everywhere with me.  The pictures practically take themselves.

  1. Hi Susan, I’m enjoying your photos and poetry very much. I found you because I was looking into moving to Eldorado and I read your kind thoughts about a pet duck and the Chicken Wars. I am stepping back from Eldorado. I would rather move to a community where the people don’t look for problems in their neighbor’s back yards. I am stunned that the association would sue it’s residents over their chickens. I have no interest in chickens, but what if I decide to have a party? Will I be sued? Or maybe I’ll want to paint my front door orange. Is that acceptable? In my current location we have no disputes and I live in a townhouse. I can’t even imagine what kind of people can’t get along with all that acreage between them. Wishing you all the very best. – Edie Layland


    • Thank you Edie! I enjoyed looking at your portraits of children as well. It’s unfortunate what we are going through here in Eldorado. It’s gotten more and more stringent since I moved here 12 years ago. I’m glad you found a peaceful place. Did you check out Santa Fe?


      • Hi Susan. What lovely words and images you produce. I happened upon your blog url upon seeing your ‘duck-love’ message on Eldorado Daily after I read Gershon’s commentary on “fiduciary duty’ there. Then I remembered we met at the last Eldorado Annual Meeting after you and several other members offered eloquent pleas for the board to stop its destructive actions. I was a bit surprised, since I had been working with the defendants and others supporting them and had never met any of those who spoke up. I think I remember [my memory tends to lack detail] asking you for your email or phone number as a possible supporter [I’ll check my contacts list later]. So, your commentator, Edie Layland, confirms what a realtor friend told me: people are being turned off by Eldorado, not because of a few pet hens but because of a board with a ‘corporate’ anti-empathetic view and even authoritarian attitude toward their members rather than compassionate community perspective. Well, I won’t ramble on; just wanted to say, thanks for the support for community. ~ Bob Christie, Hensforth!


      • Thanks for your kind words, Bob! I do remember meeting you at the annual meeting. I really look forward
        to this issue being resolved and hope that we have some good candidates for the next election.
