Kind of a Metaphor

While looking for a specific image today, I came across this one that I took on July 14th, 2014.

July usually marks the beginning of monsoon season in Tucson, which is something we all looked forward to seeing. The rains would come sometimes with a fury and relieve the sweltering summer heat. I always found it so exciting to see it happen so I practiced looking up at the sky every day.

On this particular day, as I looked up, I couldn’t help but notice the sheep and the dog. And I laughed because to me it looks like the sheep wasn’t about to succumb to being herded.

Kind of a metaphor for us humans, isn’t it?

Something to think about.

Maybe She is Crazy

I attended a wonderful brunch yesterday that a dear friend hosted.  Had a lovely time and ate waaaaaaay too much, but c’est la vie. 🙂

When I left her house and walked outside I noticed these clouds in the sky over the Catalina mountains.  Now I’m no weather or cloud formation expert, but I found them to be something that I’ve only seen once before.  I’m not sure that the image (taken with my phone) even does them justice.  Seeing them with my own eyes was one of those moments that takes your breath away.

People think I’m crazy when I express that I think we have visitors from space.  So if that’s what YOU think, hey, that’s fine with me.  I just happen to personally believe that we are not alone in this beautiful universe and that our little blue planet is not the only one with life.  I don’t believe in aliens (the kind that Hollywood depicts as being malicious).  But I do believe that our star brothers and sisters exist and that they are benevolent in nature.  Namaste’

Do You Think They Know?

So … while traveling around the Old Pueblo the other day, I happened to notice a pretty interesting cloud formation.  Sitting at the stoplight, the thought occurred to me that the clouds could indeed be cloud ships.

Yeah, lots of people will think I’m crazy and I just might be, but I truly don’t believe we’re alone in the universe.  I mean, how egotistical is that????  What if our star brothers and sisters really do exist?  What if they’re all around us, just waiting for an invitation to be observed?

Feel free to comment and let me know what you think.  Namaste’

Balancing Act

This image was taken at the same place where I took Eyes of the Future. Whoever balanced these stones must have had some help. ‘Ya think?  Each stone is at least one foot high, some higher.  Wish I had been there when this was done. Namaste’BalancingAct.signed

Summer Storms

For those of my readers not familiar with southern Arizona, it’s typical this time of year to have what we call the “monsoons.”  Big thunderheads build up in the afternoons and can produce some wicked storms.

Sometimes they never materialize.  Like this shot of the clouds to our north.  Big clouds, no rain.  Oh, well.  (I took this with the Instagram app on my phone.)

We see them coming and always hope that they will be big “producers.”  I keep hoping, day after day.  Every little drop of rain is a gift in my book.  Namaste’

A Rare Sight

It’s a rare sight around here to be able to photograph the sun.  There was just enough cloud cover last night to let it shine through without burning my eyes (I hope).  Today is all about indoor activities, like cleaning out some files, because we’re supposed to hit 113 or higher today.

I heard that Las Vegas, where it will be even hotter than us, has set up temporary cooling stations around the city and in Henderson.  Bravo for you guys!  It might save some folks from heat stroke, especially the homeless.  Stay cool … namaste’

Independence Day – 2012

Happy Independence Day to all of you beautiful people!

Independence Day, the commemoration of America’s independence of the British Crown on July 4, 1776, has somehow gravitated to wishing others a Happy 4th of July. What’s up with that?  I don’t understand.  That’s like saying Happy 31st of May instead of Happy Memorial Day.  Our forefathers fought hard and a lot of lives were lost so that we could be a free country.  FREE = INDEPENDENCE.  So I say to you … Happy Independence Day and may God continue to bless us all.

One of my fellow bloggers wrote a great post for today and I’d like to share it with you:  WE THE PEOPLE.

The photos are of today … first one of our flag and subsequent ones as the summer storm hit and flooded our back yard.  Yee Haw!  Lots of lightning, thunder and rain … glorious rain!  I was so excited to see our parched desert get a gigantic drink of water.  Namaste’
