  • This happy holiday time always translates into fun ‘way out here in the mountains. My friends, many in my age group, still send hand-written messages on Christmas cards. Yes, the list gets shorter every year, sadly. Some of the old Gascon Gang have now weathered their last storm. And some even read this column on the internet. I am flattered!

    SATURDAY SÁBADO

  • Submitted to the Optic

    Santa Fe Pro Musica will present its holiday tradition, “A Baroque Christmas” today through Tuesday at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. each evening at the Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe.

    Winter is a time of celebration for families of many faiths. Gathering in the warmth of the fire, we tell stories and sing songs of the ages. Outside, the scent of chimney smoke lingers on the cool, crisp air, as the last leaves fall from the trees. In this atmosphere, we celebrate the passing of an old year and the coming of a new.
