Iron Horse

When hubby’s twin sister was here visiting, we decided to go to Tubac AZ.  It’s a wonderful artist community where you can find original works of art of all genres and some really great restaurants, too. I love it there and if I was wealthy, I would buy something from every store 🙂  All of the shop owners and artists we met were so nice and helpful with information about their offerings.  If you’re ever in southern Arizona and want to spend a lovely day, Tubac is the place to go.  Just don’t do it in the summer; way too hot!

The photo is of a horse and his sidekick, complete with sombrero and guitar, that I spied along one of the streets.  This particular piece was priced at $3800. Sounds pricey but the work that went into this had to be huge.

I’ll be adding more photos from our visit there as time goes on.  Namaste’

Paper Camera

Today’s photo is of some tulips on the kitchen table that I shot with my phone, using an app called Paper Camera.  It does all kinds of cool things.  I recommend it highly if you have an android phone.  Namaste’

It Always Works Out

For a long, long time I have believed that all things work out if our intention is that they do so – for the highest good of ALL concerned.  My son just recently told me that he is being laid off.  Apparently the company he works for in Texas (which he really likes) is outsourcing the whole department that he’s in.  And on top of that, he has to move, so he’s packing up his place and filling out rental applications.  Ugh!  We all know how icky that is!  In one of his emails he said, “when it rains, it pours … all over me.  Ha!”  At least he has a good sense of humor about it and doesn’t feel like a victim.

The whole point of this is that we’ve all found ourselves facing things that just seem to come at the wrong time.  And at first glance, we can feel like the Universe is picking on us. But it really isn’t.  They’re opportunities for growth and intuitive advancement.  We just need to see them as such.

We all have the same number of hours in a day and access to all the colored pencils in the box.  Namaste’

Just Chillin’

Some people say that I can find a picture in the strangest of places.  Well I guess that’s because I seem to always have my camera close by.  Some people also say that my camera has become an extension of my arm.  Hmmm … this picture is probably evidence of that.  Sitting by the fire the other night with an almost empty glass of Chardonnay with my feet up on the hearth.  Hmmm … camera was in my right hand.  Hmmm … fire + wine + relaxation + camera = picture.

Yep, guess I’m guilty of guilty pleasures. Ha!  Namaste’
