    Miss Jupiter Moon is traveling with a book of journal tags. This is the text for her stay in Santa Fe

    Miss Jupiter Moon went native during her extended stay in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The first thing she did was get her hair put in dreads. The charms on her journal tag are other mementos of her visit. Turquoise. A chili pepper colored skull that represents the Day of the Dead celebrations she missed. The bone carved bead to remind her of all the East Indian doors and shutters one finds in Santa Fe. She had a small portrait done to reflect her recently discovered inner luminosity.

    There is a curious lime charm. She will tell you that it represents her fondness for agave margaritas. However, this is suspect: the girl drinks like a fish, and that lime could easily represent all the Coronas with lime she consumed.

    Santa Fe is littered with psychics, palm and tarot readers. Jupiter Moon went to several. Here she was told she had a past life in Santa Fe and here she was a mermaid. Miss Moon wasn’t convinced of the mermaid in the desert schtick, until it was explained that most of the area was ocean bottom 11 million years ago. Now she thinks otherwise. This judgement is suspect, see “drinks like a fish” comment above. She had a removable mermaid skirt made.

    She learned that her name can be represented with astrological symbols and she got a small tattoo of them under her hairline. She leaves while there is still snow on the ground from Christmas and hopes she can return someday.

    Frida meets some gals from my doll collection. The little girls love her, and the antique lady is intrigued.

    I am thinking of painting Felicite's face. Or doing something on the inside of her cape. Anyone have dibs on either of these?

    Art Junkie I am concerned that I haven't received Miss Jupiter Moon. Did so love Santa Fe that she took a late flight to Ohio? I am sure her time in Ohio will not nearly be as exciting so, I wouldn't blame her for delaying a few more days. When do you think I should expect her?

    Princess Filagree is having a great time in DC. Since she came here fully dressed, with make up and hair done, she will be getting accessories. She charmed the State Department officials who issued her a US passport and she went to T Mobile and got a cell phone and stopped by Best Buy and got a camera. She is getting a big carry-bag to store them all in, and may find some other souvenirs to take with her on her journey!
