Shimmering white dunes, shaped and contoured by the wind into smoothly rounded crescents, stretch endlessly before the eyes of wanderers in the White Sands.

Welcome to my world. No…not the world of being there…the world at my computer. I had so much fun processing this image, and of course it is a rough draft. I have been in ICU for a month.

College student has been harassed by her administrator, Dr. Fidel Trujillo for too long. She filed for a restraining order on him but he knows the judge, Abigail Aragon who let him continue to harass her. This judge also let a women get away with murder because she was friends with his mother. The courts are so controlled by connected families in Northern New Mexico who do political favors for each other, specifically in Las Vegas, NM and Mora, NM. So Please reblog and spread the word so something gets done about all the corruption!
