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 ūüôā ¬†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’
