reconnect with nature....a little backyard macro







Wild geraniums I brought down from the mountains and one of the grasshoppers that eats my hollyhocks. Cute little guy, isn't he?

under the utah sky







Bone collecting, rimrock wandering, rabbit hunting, (Pinto, that is), and an awesome cowboy dinner with a bottle of wine on the mesa.
If only these days could last forever.

flowers everywhere







As if all this beauty wasn't enough to make me smile....it was all a part of knowing I had returned. Hummingbirds and swallows flew along with me as I walked and crows called to each other in the distance. Flowers covered the earth. The promise of rain was in the air. Springtime had welcomed me back to my mesa.

utah 61











A quick, last minute trip to Colorado, finding myself sidetracked in Utah, and packing a whole lifetime into three glorious, if not cold and wet and snowy, days.
This is the place I lay my heart on the sand, the place that smells of holy sage, the place I always return to. It's the place where the present, the past, and the prehistoric collide and become one, blowing in on the storms. The phenomenon leaves me in awe, my arms stretched to the sky, beckoning the gods to rain down on me, to drench me in the wonder of life.
May you enjoy the earth's secrets, mysteries, wildness, and weather as much as I do.

This weekend, chase your dreams.

the road less traveled

and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost
