Art Imitates Life

In spite of my devotion to Sir Oscar Wilde, I'll beg to differ with him here. The past six years have been instrumental for me as a person: like a runner catching stride, a dancer finding the groove a singer hitting just the right note. I have found my muse.

When I look around me, my surroundings speak to me in a comforting voice, and a language I understand. Of course there are times I disagree; koyaanisqatsi-but, I recover and quickly return home to my muse, Arizona.

Peace and purpose

Absolutely lovely. Isn't that funny how sometimes you have to step away from what's right in front of you before you can appreciate it? And congratulations on your blog milestones. Bravo!

Beautiful! I love the feeling from your post and the warm. I love the imagery of a runner catching her stride, etc...*sigh*

Your pictures, your jewelry, and your writing are all infused with LIGHT.

And thank you for your generous words on my last post at Mama C--I really appreciate what you have to say, and think about.
