An Artists Retreat at the Mabel Dodge Luhan House with David Costanza
It is with pride that we present to you this series of artist interviews made at the historic Mabel Dodge Luhan house in Taos, New Mexico.
David and I share all sorts of criss-crossed relations. He has been my landlord, I have been his employer. His wife has been my yoga teacher and his music partner one of osteriavarvamingo’s prized knitters. It is a small town after-all but also so deep with unique and independent spirits like David.
Mostly, I have truly enjoyed the music of Art of Flying. It makes me cry and, well, sad songs make me happy. It’s the kind of sound that washes over your soul and cleans it. I know, right, “soul-cleansing” music? Well, have a look-see for yourself. He’s more than just a mighty fine looking cashmere model. He’s thoughtful, crafted and committed to his art in a way we should all take note.
“I try to get up in the dark, do the little yoga thing, have tea and play the guitar and write before I hit anything practical: any news, any phones, any computers.”
