lunar eclipse, blood moon

End of an Era

Total lunar eclipses are supposed to signify the end of an era. Not the end of a chapter, but perhaps the end of a book. It seemed fitting to honor tonight’s eclipse as my father lies in hospice. For our family, it will soon be the end of […]

Tree Fingers

To stay in balance, I need time outside, in nature. Quiet time, not on my smartphone or listening to music. On a recent hike, I saw tree fingers everywhere I looked! They were young, old, and bent out of shape. Clean-shaven or mossy, straight or bent, there were […]

An Awkward Moment

It was an awkward moment. My husband and I were on the way to the Chihuly exhibit at the botanical gardens and stopped off for lunch nearby. It was a snooty part of town and we were a bit under-dressed for the restaurant. The waitress came over and […]

Connecting with the World Outside

I forget that it’s all inside. There are the five elements – earth, fire, water, air, and ether. The first four are well-recognized ancient building blocks of everything. The fifth one is occasionally forgotten. Sometimes, I long for something that is REAL. After all, I work in an […]

Colorado, golden aspens, Golden Gate State Park

Change in Perspective

My dog and I recently spent the afternoon at a local state park. As I took pictures of the trees, a lesson in perspective again asserted itself. All I had to do was move a few feet one way or the other to snap a dramatically different photo. […]
