I met Akasha in the Sage Bakehouse in Santa Fe, NM. When she walked in with her notebooks, I waited 'til she was settled before I approached her for a photo. Originally from Massachusetts, she has lived here for 13 years with her 9-year-old son, Rowan, whose portrait she proudly showed me: a handsome young man posing with their parrot. They live with birds, fish, and a cat. Akasha stays busy as an instructor of yoga and her own landscape design business. I hope to run into her again, and if I continue to roam the city early in the morning for photo ops, I just might see her here or perhaps somewhere else.
