tonight the moon rose like a big orange in the sky.
i could see it perfectly though the black boney trees, across the river...

a touch of beauty, a touch of color, in the middle of winter is
such a treat...thank you moon....

ive been trying really hard to fight the winter blahs, but it is difficult.
so i put the sound machine on "summer crickets"
and will make visits to the orchid house...

another thing i do is tramp around the web in search of eye candy delights.
here are a few for you.

monday's beauty.

We have not come here to take prisoners,
But to surrender ever more deeply
To freedom and joy.

We have not come into this exquisite world
To hold ourselves hostage from love.

Run my dear,
From anything
That may not strengthen
Your precious budding wings.

Run like hell my dear,
From anyone likely
To put a sharp knife
Into the sacred, tender vision
Of your beautiful heart.

We have a duty to befriend
Those aspects of obedience
That stand outside of our house
And shout to our reason
"O please, O please,
Come out and play."

For we have not come here to take prisoners
Or to confine our wondrous spirits,

But to experience ever and ever more deeply
Our divine courage, freedom and
Light!

yeah,.....

my next adventure will be a trip to death valley.
why? because i have always seen myself driving off into the
desert sun, wearing my dusty boots, staying at funky little motels
with really bad curtains and bedspread displays.

i like places of isolation and solitude. i want to feel the wind and i want
to hear the buzz of a bug. i want to have an open road and wide skies.
i want to collect stories from an old cowboy...
...something about this area scares me a little, which is something i also love.
(dont worry mom, i promise not to pick up any hitchers).

if you have taken this trip via vegas, and know of some good stretches or little joints to stop at along the way, i would love to hear from you...


thanks...peace out

this is a fab new site created by my incredibly brilliant friend, swirly
girl.

this is another fab new site created by my other incredibly brilliant friend,
allison

and these are the boots i have been coveting, which is most definitely inappropriate.

which leads me to believe i should spend less time wanting,
and more time creating things like my brilliant friends.

and that's all i've got,

have a good weekend folks.
