New Mexico

Red sand
glazed everything
my hair
my teeth my
My cheeks blasted
near Shiprock
leaning to stay upright.
In the bottom of the
the last grains
of being there
slip over
my fingertips.

Spring is coming and I love all the new green in the world

Mardi Gras is coming and I love the joy and absolute hedonism

I love contact with old friends- who knew me when - keeps me grounded

Old German Paper Mache Easter eggs

and need we say more

Dig This

A friend posted this on my Facebook - wanted to share it with you as well -


Bollywood- I love Indian movies - the color - the music- it gives a view

into a place not too many folks have visited -yet soooo many people live,

it reminds me that certain things are universal - love- romance -tears -drama

Getting new music - I love getting new music - it takes me right back to being a teenager again the excitement and pleasure of hearing something new

Driving- anywhere anytime - my longest love affair has been with the road

Organic Souvenirs- rocks, shells, pieces of drift wood, found objects, memories of being someplace, the day ,the journey, encased in the thing carried home.

The New Craft Movement- reminds me we all love the handmade and homemade, it is heavy with a sense of timelessness and rejection of the impersonal mass produced object- reduce-reuse-re-cycle -re purpose- rebel-

Dances to bring back the spring

life full in her belly

The fires in the home hearths blaze

we stand in the path between

the solstice and the equinox

Goddess of poets

unloose my tongue

with the honey of creation

so I can sing to you
