Sky blue pink

I always wondered what that color was and now I know.

Beauty of the ‘tween time.

Mountain Dragon

The mountain dragon slips down from the east as unsyncopated rain taps on the window.
Perhaps the mountain gods are angry refusing to let the sun emerge
Creatures are all hidden and the only thing moving are falling leaves.

Charcoal Skies

Deep gray sky with charcoal clouds
The rain has fallen all night
Clay seeps through the damp no longer dusty earth
Thunder rumbles the house shakes
Nature at its bold and confident best
Gives warning of power held in trust of what is to come.

Dawn has come another magnificent day.

Wire-Less Re-Cap

Wire-less re-cap

I promised I would report back what it was like to be unplugged and wireless.

I chose to do this on an adventure to the Sea of Cortez. Of course, within hours of arriving I momentarily wished I had my smart phone to look up information which I should have done before traveling but the feeling passed quickly.I had no smart phone to translate, to convert money or to capture photographs. Of course no TV or other devices.

I did think of you and want to blog photographs and stories but a promise is a promise. And I soon forgot about being connected.

What I did do was sit on the beach at 5:30 every day to watch magnificent sunrises and to really see them. I stood in the Sea of Cortez with dolphins and pelicans arms distance away and experienced it.

I never wear a watch so I never check the time and ate if hungry at any time. I walked the length of San Carlos meeting wonderful people, a few too many Americans and Canadians, drew sketches of the mountains, landscape and home.

By the time I returned home I really did not turn on my electronics although I did contact my family. Since then I have used less, seen more, and felt more, experienced life in a free and gentle way.

Another outcome is my art has become more proficient and imaginative.
