Whenever I visit my aunt in Colorado I never, ever want to leave that place! Denver is seriously so cool it hurts. Last week I hiked, maintained a regular sleep schedule, partook in an herbal tinctures class (we imagined lab coats and goggles…we were wrong), ate fresh vegetables from the garden, spent way too long in Innisfree Poetry Bookstore in Boulder, got reprimanded for sneaking photos of the Tom Wessleman exhibition at the Denver Art Museum, and drove through windy, rainy mountains in Golden. More importantly, spending any time at all with my aunt feels like a spiritual retreat (she has degrees in horticulture and chinese medicine, is a practicing acupuncturist and full time nurse at a center for juvenile boys- where she started a book club….. you get the idea.) with a good bit of hysterical laughter. Nothing better.
