Wind-in-the-tall-trees

I knew the wind in the tall trees before I knew God the father. I knew the way the sunlight dappled in the leaves and on the speckled ground around me. I knew of waiting for the fig to ripen on the branch and of climbing the plum trees in the back yard. I knew…

My dog

Oh what glorious stanzas my dog might write if she could. She might pen passion filled ballads about the desire to lick the sliver of avocado off my top lip when I’m eating my salad. About her dedication to her seat right in the corner in that shadowy spot between the table and the wall….

Training wheels on a dirt road in Colorado

There’s kind of a rythym you find when your young children learn to ride without training wheels. You set out with a decent stretch of straight pavement. You run along side of them for a good couple of strides gripping the seat. Eventually though you must let go. I guess you realize “you know what…

She said her name was Mary

My mom has been visiting and it has been a very sweet time. As I have gotten older I have certainly come into a new place of relating with my mom.  I brought her into our local Starbucks so she could get her chai tea latte on the way to the airport. She made her…

Perhaps

​Perhaps  You are a beauty because in your face I see someone I once knew. She is gone. Far away from me now In another world. another place. Walking from her condo to her job. I’m glad for her How fleeting life is. I’ve already lived a hundred lives And I will live a hundred…

She said  “I do know that,” pause… “God’s timing.. is.. crucial”   the last word being punctuated by the final bowed note from the orchestra performance of a Vivaldi piece. And with the…

A meteor crater

I went just yesterday to the Meteor Crater on the high plain in northern Arizona, near Winslow. Sitting in the courtyard soaking up the sun I was pleasantly blessed to see so many people notice and enjoy this framed view. Framed view of the San Francisco Peaks from the Meteor Crater visitor center The Crater…

Little Usa

When I was 11 I changed my name.  Before you think that I grew up in a progressive household where I changed my name to moonbeam or rainbow think again! ……I grew up in a hippy household where I changed my name from Musicwind. Essentially I didn’t completely change my name I just dropped a…

Creating a memory

I am passionate about creating a memory! It’s probably the thing that drives my photography the most. We all know that we can’t STOP time, but the camera is a tool that can help freeze it. To freeze the moment. To capture droplets of time, to crystallize  morsels of colour and to suspend these droplets…

This is MY spot!

This is my spot! I found it. I haven’t brought any one else to my spot yet. It’s not so much that it is a secret spot. It is, in fact, in plain view. And I am sure every one who lives in the town of Bisbee knows how to get here. It’s just that…
