crazy wind-The Chinati

There is a wall of dust surrounding the land in front of El Cosmico (my front yard) and the wind is howling out here in West Texas today like a madman. Its crazy! This one has a scary personality.
March brings the WIND. Like you have never felt. It drives us crazy, uneasy...unsettled. But today, this one is exciting! There's a celebratory feeling around town. Maybe because this particular wind is so determined and angry, a real bastard. We were just talking the other night at Padre's about how our Marfa wind needs a The Santa Annas in California or The Scirocco in Africa, reputedly so strong and maddening a wind that husbands are let off from beating their wives and a more lenient sentence given to those driven to murder. I'll call this wind The Chinati.
For me, the wind drives me to think of other places. Traveling. Blowing around the world with a good book and a bag. India.
Guatemala. Thailand. Cambodia......Morocco....

New at JM

We just returned from a shopping trip and we have some cool new things! Next week, heading down to Mexico with Marfa Brands pal Ginger to scour for Topo and Sol bottles, take pictures, drink micheladas and eat the best and spiciest Aqua Chiles (seafood cocktails) I have ever tasted.
While we are there, we will be sure to pick up some JM favorites including...Roooster belts, Classicos Matches, scapulars, pottery, the virgin statues we love and whatever other fab treasures we come across! I am on the hunt for more Iguana Balm and some nice Copal for burning. Check in next week for new photos and adventures from the Border! In the meantime, stop by the shop if you are in town and see what's new. See you there!
