John Simmons in 2011

Here are some photos of my special man, John Simmons.

John Simmons at Burton Park

At the beginning of 2011, it was warm enough for us to go out and enjoy the sun at Burton Park, just at the end of San Joaquin.

John likes to write outdoors

John likes to play music outdoors too

These are some of the last pictures of this guitar. On February 6 it fell off the stand and the neck cracked. It is now with Michael Phoenix Rose and it may rise again as a new instrument.

My Guitar Hero!
Gosh, he sure is handsome

Villanueva State Park

I love this park. It is about a two hour's drive from Albuquerque. You go east for an hour, then north for 20 miles. It is on the Pecos river and cottonwood trees line the banks. It is peaceful and serene.

John Simmons, Local Troubadour

Most weekends and some weekdays, John hits the road to play music on various patios in Albuquerque's Old Town. Keep your eyes open, you may see him there.
