Mind = Blown. Gracias New Mexico.
New Mexico. Traveling, searching, exploring, filming, shooting, laughing, raving, living, breathing, burning. We found the magic. My 2nd trip to New Mexico has ended, I find myself having time-and-space-jumped back to my Copenhagen life in order to plan an epic soon to be revealed 2013 project after 7 weeks in the land of enchantment. Land of Magic. As cold as it is here, I still feel the scorching hot desert sun of New Mexico on my skin, in my face, now burning permanently in my soul. New Mexico. Mad and Magic New Mexico.
Something happened, some kind of karma high. Bit magical. Far too many stories to relate now, all in good time when the words flow out of my mind less jumpled. Unfiltered emotions, freedom, exceptional feeling of freedom, exploring, making pictures every day, filming a documentary, meeting awesome and inspiring people, making new friends, dreaming and then creating a new future, allowing great and magical things to happen. Zozobra, Pie Festivals, Rodeo, Very Large Array private tour, standing on a Spaceway, high school football, Cowboy Symposium, UFOs, nuclear bomb sites, hot on the trail of Billy the Kid all over Lincoln County, driving through wide open spaces while pounding some serious bass in the RaveMobile, 5000 miles through New Mexican towns and landscapes, a loud moment as a storm hits Ruidoso, a quiet moment in the mountains, an awe-inspiring moment standing in a VLA dish, a goose-bump-inducing moment running on a Spaceway, a blindingly bright moment in White Sands, hysterically funny moments, magical moments.
Friends, amazing friends. Charlene Winfred, best rave buddy ever on the most epic of road trips ever. A massive thank you to Daniel Milnor, Brian Miller, Ana, Liam, Sebastian for brilliant friendship and hospitality, letting me into your homes and lives. Laura, Ora, Kim, Deb, great Peru crew re-union, thanks so much for the fun and hospitality in Santa Fe. And all the awesome people I met on the road. Gracias.
Freedom. An exceptional feeling of freedom and unfiltered life and emotions. Living without filters and letting everything in, let people and things really in. Magic. Making stuff happen. Karma. Yes yes, much to tell when the words flow in a more orderly fashion. New Mexico, Mad and Magic, burn, burn brightly. Loco y Magia.
Seven weeks of documentary filming and photography. Yes yes, suits me perfectly, the movie is soon to be released, the images soon to be developed and shared. More to come.
Goodmto have you visit NM for short while, Flemming. It was great getting to know you and witness your wonder at New Mexico. Can’t wait to see more images. 🙂

The railroad track is miles away,
And the day is loud with voices speaking,
Yet there isn’t a train goes by all day
But I hear its whistle shrieking.
All night there isn’t a train goes by,
Though the night is still for sleep and dreaming,
But I see its cinders red on the sky,
And hear its engine steaming.
My heart is warm with friends I make,
And better friends I’ll not be knowing;
Yet there isn’t a train I wouldn’t take,
No matter where it’s going.
PS. personally, the second picture is a winner imho, no matter what Brian says 😉
It’s freaking awesome!!!!!! Brian is seeing things, bit too much tequila and mad spring water (it just comes out of the ground!) from TorC!
Pffffft, that pose is due to too much spring water, and tequila. Just sayin’. Calling it likes I sees it.
You have one track vision I say. And it’s all related to ah… not so dressed men making alcohol.
Ana has ruined me on that book cover 😀
‘pound some beer’ !
