Annalie's hat first caught my attention. She was taking photographs of the labyrinth in the courtyard entrance of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi in downtown Santa Fe. She and several friends from Las Cruces, New Mexico, including her sister seen in the background, came to Santa Fe to attend the Santa Fe opera rather than the Indian Market, although they won't miss any of those festivities either. They have seen two operas already and said that Thursday night's performance of The Last Savage was fantastic. They are eagerly waiting to see Faust next. Annalie is the Administrative Director of Congregation B'nai Zion in El Paso Texas,, a conservative congregation affiliated with with the United Synagogue of America.
