Spring has Sprung!

I've been waiting for the rain to subside so that I could capture a shot of the cherry blossoms that have been appearing in our neighborhood over the past few weeks. Wednesday afternoon I remembered to take my camera along when I walked the dogs. Of course, they are not really very interested in holding still while Mommy stands around making clicking noises with her silly machine, so a lot of the shots I took were rather blurry. I guess that's what you get for trying to multi-task.

A Valentine

In honor of my sweetheart, husband, soul mate,
I share this poem for Valentine's Day:

salamander days, desert voyages,
misty pre-dawn mornings;
with you, magic is not illusion

with you, coyotes call at midnight
heralding safe passage,
blessing our journey

with you, action becomes effortless
touch becomes language
thought becomes reality

with you, earth bares herself
embraces me
welcomes me home

with you, I am beauty
I am peace
I am whole

Emerald Isle

I've been poking through photo files and found this, one of my favorite images from our September hike up Mt. Whitney. I spied this tiny island of moss and grass in Lone Pine Creek near Outpost Camp. It must certainly be a happy home to some miniature denizens of the wilderness?

The Land of Enchantment

My husband and I had the extreme pleasure of traveling to New Mexico to spend the Christmas holiday in Taos. I had wanted to go somewhere "wintery" and I certainly got my wish. We had snowy days and bright, sunny, below-freezing days - and all of it was perfect. Naturally, we packed as much into our time there as possible, visitng art galleries and seeing the sights in both Taos and the surrounding areas. Because I faced a crisis with an ailing dog for a couple weeks in January, I'm still working on getting some of my photos ready to put on my Zazzle site, but in the meantime I thought I could post the slideshow we created to share our journey with family and friends.
