I Love Santa Fe because...

Real Estate Broker/Owner with eXp Realty LLC NM Broker License 16161


The gift of seeing the sun rise over the Sangre de Cristro mountains in Santa Fe is often where my day begins...looking east at dawn for what nature will paint in the sky next. And this is one of the reasons why I love Santa Fe. There is something special in seeing the sun rise. The experience makes me want to pass it forward.  And today I learned it inspired someone to pass an act of kindness forward. 

After the sun rose, I found myself in a downtown parking lot looking at my "to do" list to get my brake light bulb fixed. As I started my car, I caught a glimpse of someone walking by in my rear view mirror. I rolled down my window.

"Can you tell me which light is out" I asked.

"Sure" he said.

The next thing I knew he asked me to open the trunk so he could pull out the bulb. And then this happened.

He said, "don't go anywhere."

He then walked over to his truck and pulled out what looked like a tool box.

He shouted out, "I've got one!"

He walked back to my car. In a nanosecond he put in a new bulb and began to walk away.

"Whoa, please stop!" I said. He turned, stopped and smiled.

"Let me pay you for the bulb." I said pulling out a five dollar bill.

He kindly refused. He told me our sunrises inspire him to perform acts of kindness everyday. His favorite is replacing bulbs. He encouraged me to do the same and disappeared towards the Plaza.

This is why I love Santa Fe! Do you?

Everyone - a word of explanation. This was posted a few weeks ago and for some reason did not move into the stream of our blog efforts until today. Perhaps it fell into a manhole in the world of cyberspace. The good news is the folks here were able to retreive it. Your take on whether it would be best to tell this story again given what happened would be appreciated.

What a lovely story.

A stranger helped me recently too to jump start my bike. I could wait an hour for a road side assistance and it was getting really late. God bless his heart:)
