Thoughts on December 31, 2007

Another year has come and gone
Did it go by faster, or am I wrong
The coming times are sure uncertain
The world has changed
For many it's a burden
In my little corner of this planet
Where sunflowers grow real tall
I look to the future and know I'm in it
But how much longer I don't know at all
The rocks and trees
The sky and breeze
Is in a song I wrote long ago
It tells about a world where we
are all one but I don't see
That others share my point of view
I know my song is not new
It has been sung many times before
If others don't sing with us soon
The rocks and trees will be here alone
They won't mind, will you

Went to the dentist in Mexico

I had never been out of the country, really, until our day in Palomas, Mexico to go to the dentist. It was a 4+ hour drive and not a bad trip. Went down the interstate after leaving home at 4am. Came back through the Gila and was beautiful as ever. Okay, so David and I are standing in front of some guitar player, duh, outside of La Tienda Rosa (The Pink Store). They had shopping and dining of which we only did the latter. The other statue is Pancho Villa. I would much rather visit Palomas than to go to Juarez and sorry, Texans, El Paso.

All in all a good day and we made it safely back into the good ol' USA!

Happy Winter Solstice

Wishing everyone a very happy winter solstice from Sunflower! It is a cold and blowy winter's day here on Rainwalker Mesa but it is nice to be celebrating the solstice and the welcoming of longer days. May the Universe Bless you in all you do.

Nichole's Shawl

This is a scarf or more accurately, a shawl, for my future daughter in law. It is pretty tightly woven and didn't turn out as I expected but it is so soft and will be very warm around her neck and shoulders. I won't get to send it until christmas eve but she will get it in time for the cold Arkansas winter!

Beautiful Snow

It snowed and I love it. I would move to Alaska just to have all the snow I could ever want but I like it here too much. And ain't it beautiful? I went out and took these pics just as the sun was coming up in my P.J.s and boy was it cold. I think our lowest has only been 5 degrees with wind chill factors about -5.
I love watching the snow fall the most but I like it to stick to the ground and last a while and this one has. We have had it for a week now and it is supposed to warm up (which is nice too) and then another front is coming thru just in time for the Solstice and Christmas.
