Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Inside looking out.



I really like the lines and the flow of color on this one.


No one

I'm taking my dreams back. You can share them if you want. But don't buy into this sacrifice "for the greater good."

Solstice snow

The first snowfall of the year in my high desert was about a half hour and melted as soon as it fell.

Last night I was keeping vigil, well, sort of. My knees don't like me these days, so I can't kneel in front of the fireplace for extended times anymore. But I was still feeding the fire and still meditating. About 22:30 or so I noticed that the streets were wet and I thought that was the rain we were expecting. Then I noticed that the car had snow on the top. So it was a very wet snow. Somewhere about 4 it started sticking, and as I write this at 8:22 it is coming down slowly but steadily.

Today marks the last day of Starwell, my version of the solstice. I'll need to go check on my mother later. Obviously I don't want her going outside in the snow.

I'm winter-born, so a good snow always touches my soul in a quiet joyful way. I could watch it for hours. I did watch it for hours.

Mostly my high Arizona desert gets mild weather. Not too hot in the summer, not too much rain, and not too much snow.

I'm thankful that I have snow, a fireplace, and a big set of windows to watch it this day.

Take joy in the day as the light returns.
