Pictures Speak

petrog

Here are some petroglyphs from yesterday’s hike.  After dancing all night and walking the labyrinth in celebration of the winter solstice I didn’t feel like hiking this morning.  I will be out there tomorrow and post more photographs for you.

Courage

Courage takes many shapes.

It forms into smoke when I desperately grab for it and sinks into the deepest waters when I turn to look at what sparkles just out of reach.

This morning I caught a ride on a rodeo bronco

But I  held on for the ride.

Tomorrow I go to a resort for a week.

One week of self indulgence

and if you don’t think that tool courage

I have spent my life fighting for others, afraid to stop and do anything for myself.  It was not easy to do something for me. I am not self indulgent or ego centered and it scared me, seriously scared me. Isn’t that what courage is doing what scares you? So tomorrow my adventure becomes one for me, for the first time, me, and I will enjoy this new experience.

Remedy

Now that it is cold and flu season I shall once again share my remedy with you.  Grate 1/2 an onion or a small onion, 1 or 2 cloves of garlic, the juice of one fat lemon and include the juicy fibers too, and a couple of shake of red cayenne pepper. Boil it all up in water, an enamel pot is best.  Drink while it is hot and you will feel better by morning.  Some may need a little honey or pure maple syrup added to their cup.

All I know is it has worked well for me and I am doing better. I also use pure organic essential oils from Dottera, check out my site at mydottera.beautywalk and feel free to order straight from my site.  http://www.mydoterra.com/beautywalk

Down for a Short Count

I traveled through Mission to Trinidad,CO where I met delightful people and really wanted to stay but unfortunately the fracking mining is causing earthquakes and methane gas to come through the water pipes.  The gas not the earthquakes although I am sure they do rattle the pipes.  I really loved it there and it was difficult to leave. Next I drove to Flagstaff, AZ.  Did you see the sunrise I posted? At the hotel I met two fun and informative young men.  Motel 6 in Flagstaff who shared stories about thei lives and their friends.  We must have spoken over coffee for almost 2 hours standing in the lobby at 6 AM.  From Flagstaff I drove down to Montezuma Lake to check out a cute studio for rent.  The location was perfect but the studio dark and as hard as I tried to convince myself it would work I knew the darkness would get to me.  The landlord was fascinating and if I had a place to live I would love to learn more about him and his life. So out of frustration and in need of a place to rest for a moment I drove to an old friend in Phoenix.  Unfortunately he shared his cold with me.  I was afraid this might happen so I left after 2 nights and my the time I reached Las Vegas I could feel it in my ears and throat. Today I am in Vegas having difficulty swallowing but using essential oils and healing touch to get better,  I may have to take a days rest and leave Wednesday not Tuesday.  The next leg of the journey is to Utah but who knows what the winds hold and where I may end up.
