I don’t know what’s going on with famous people in spirit stopping by lately, but it’s increasing for some reason. Yesterday when I was driving to Taos after feeling “called” (not been there for quite a while) in the Pojoaque area “When Doves Cry” came on 98.5 FM. Almost immediately I felt strong tingling, which is my sign that someone in spirit is arriving. All of a sudden, I clairvoyantly saw purple (despite the fact that, supposedly, Prince’s favorite color was orange) and he identified himself. He apologized for threatening to sue me years ago due to an innocent 14 seconds long Instagram video I posted (he was known to be litigious). He also told me that when he was in a physical body he was greatly misunderstood. He did acknowledge, though, that he now realizes he could be difficult at times.
He has found Vanity on the Other Side and is happy about meeting up with his old friend in spirit. He said he’s with two babies. I knew he and Mayte Garcia had lost a son shortly after birth, but had to Google his history to see if there could have been another baby in spirit, and sadly, yes there was another loss. https://hollywoodlife.com/2016/04/22/prince-mayte-garcia-second-child-baby-died-broke-up-marriage/
He loves Mayte very much and is watching over her until they meet again.
Here’s an excited and quick video I pulled over in Espanola to record yesterday.
Once I got to Taos, I stopped to take MORE pictures of St. Francis of Assisi Church in Ranchos de Taos and then decided to quickly visit Dennis Hopper’s grave again. For those who don’t know, he lived in Taos for decades after he discovered it and fell in love with it while filming Easy Rider. He came to me in spirit the first time I ever visited him years ago. When I had asked him if he had any advice for those of us still down here, he replied with a simple but powerful, “LIVE”. Anyway, when I went to drive Ruby (my 2015 Honda Fit…NOT a 4×4) into the small cemetery, I saw that it was muddy, but thought we’d be fine. WRONG. I got Ruby badly stuck in deep, pudding like mud. I did everything I could to wiggle her free, to no avail. I keep an old yoga mat in the car that I put on her windshield at night so I don’t have to scrape ice off at 5:45 a.m. when I go to work, and tried putting that under one of her front tires to get traction, but, no luck. I didn’t know what I was going to do and was getting concerned when this good Samaritan couple came to help me. They had driven by and seen me struggling, and went home to get a different pick-up truck with cable that they hooked onto Ruby’s butt to tow her out. These people were angels! Before I could give them some money, they took off. Here is Ruby stuck.

Shit!! Ruby is helplessly stuck in mud at Dennis Hopper's cemetery! A yoga mat didn't help at all. A nice couple is getting a rope to tow us out. I can't believe I did this! #taosnm #taosnewmexico #taos #visittaos #landofenchantment #newmexicophotographer #newmexico #newmexicotrue
And here is Ruby after she was freed! What you need to notice here is Grandma Taos Mountain looming in the background…watching me…and plotting. LOL

Ruby is freed! Thank you to the kind strangers! Grandma, this was not amusing! I know b you're trying to keep me here. This is reminiscent of my 9/2016 dream. #taosnm #taosnewmexico #taos #visittaos #landofenchantment #newmexicophotographer #newmexico #newmexicotrue #mountains
Here is Dennis Hopper’s grave. It’s always interesting to see what people leave for him at his final resting place.
Just before the kind couple came to help me, I suddenly had that dream from September 2016 I’ve blogged about before pop into my head. In that dream, I was driving from Denver to Taos and got badly stuck in mud! Grandma Taos Mountain either loves you or hates you (well…hate may be too strong of a word) and will go to extreme measures to keep you in Taos if she wants you there, or will kick you the heck out if she wants you gone. I had this strong feeling while getting Ruby deeper and deeper stuck and getting mud all over me, that Grandma was trying to get me stuck in Taos! I looked up at her (swear she was smirking) and said, “Not funny!” In fact, even the woman who helped me mentioned that Taos forces people to come who it wants to be there. I have met SO many people who’ve ended up in Taos for weird reasons like their car broke down while passing through and then they couldn’t leave or they closed their eyes and threw a dart at a map and it landed on Taos so they moved there, etc.
Here is the old blog post about that 2016 dream. https://bridge4spirit.wordpress.com/2016/09/07/taos-dream/
The rest of my day trip was great and I visited ReTails, a cat café and thrift store, where profits go to the wonderful no-kill shelter, Stray Hearts, walked around Taos Plaza, and then went to hear my bass playing friend’s great band, Out of Nowhere, play at the Adobe Bar in Taos Inn.
Here is a photo and video of Grandma Taos Mountain, while I talked to her as I do.
Well, that’s all for now. I hope everyone finds their special place, like Taos is for me.
