the Road Less Travelled is Less Travelled for a Reason

I'm thankful to be on the road less travelled. But it does seem to be a heck of a lot more difficult!

Happy Thanksgiving!

My lord, two days of cooking are quite something. I'm exhausted, lol and just about to get going again. 

I'm sending out my best thoughts to everyone. Have a wonderful day!

the Eye

I love it when interesting shapes become visible in clouds. The other day I saw an enormous eye. It was too dark to get a photo.

The Touch of Winter

Finding Cheer?

The never ending pressure to turn a blind eye to a sacrificial lamb... slaughtered while the subalpha canines piss all over themselves hiding from the noose.

Where's my integrity now?

Early Morning, Ruby Valley

I got up super early this morning to snap a couple pictures of dawn. I have a lot of great photos, some I think are stunning.  It was an amazing morning for a drive too.

a pattern

I love patterns. They can tell a story, just more abstractly than images. A guide to how a person lived. An erratic journey.

a moment

long hard work versus quick sketching

I just had to chuckle this evening. I realized I worked for weeks on the painting I posted yesterday- but it gets about as much play as work I do quickly. Here I'm trying to be contemplative, but my work is absorbed as quickly as it takes a person to glance or flip through. I think I will post more images of 'the tree from the parking lot'... when I get a chance to take more photos. Ha... maybe get one image that is correctly lit too...

tHe tRee iN tHe pArking lOt

This is a large tapestry (~6'X4') I made for my living room. It is kind of hard to photograph, which is why I am putting two photos up.

It's meant to be a neutral piece, but it seems anything but. 

I've been thinking about the magical in the ordinary. In this case, the beauty of the tree in the parking lot.

A journey

Life is such an amazing journey. Not an unusual or even interesting thing to say. But everything feels a bit chaotic around me, and I'm learning to not absorb the mad energy into myself. Since I'm a bit wound up, if you had never met before you would not be able to tell. I am much calmer than I used to be though. I think learning how to cope with the 'slings and arrows of outrageous fortune' is a big part of finding wisdom.

the Creek Bed

This creek has sheets of ice over sections of it. It looked so clear and cold, really beautiful.

Winter begins... Definitely past fall

Basically a purple color, right? No snow falling, not yellow... lovely nonetheless.

The dog made it to the top... the people didn't!

I was heading back down a trail from my hike, and met up with this dog. He was very friendly and happy. A bit later I saw him with his people heading out, much further down the trail.  I wonder if the family realized the dog finished the trail ... even though they didn't! LOL
