Put Aside Those Little Creeping Negative Thoughts—-Thursday, November 22, 2018

(The next few photos are pictures of the San Juan Mountain Range seen from our farm)

Today is the United States of America’s day of Thanksgiving

The day we give Thanks for all that is real and leave behind those feelings of ungratefulness

The reality is we should be grateful every day, every single second of every day

For, after all, not everyone gets to live to be old


(This is a photo of the Adobe Foothills at the bottom of Grand Mesa and at the end of our lane)

I feel we owe it to those souls who have passed beyond into the veil, to open our souls to Thankfulness

We need to make a strong effort to put aside jealousies and ugly slanders

And create memories of golden precious thoughts, which open us up to the beauty all around us

Not just the beauty of nature but the beauty of those other souls who come into the atmosphere we share

Either on a physical place or this wonderous cyber world.

For no matter what each person, near or far, shares your journey with you.

So with those words, I fling my arms wide and wish to say to each one of you, from the bottom of my heart [as my Momma used to say]

From my HEART to your world,





Curtains of a Chill Autumn Day—Monday, October 10, 2016

storm-coming-inA autumn storm played along the plateau yesterday.   Although the air was still warm enough to go without jackets.

snow-on-the-san-juansThe clouds covered the San Juan Mountain Range…the rugged peaks poking through the clouds show heavy snow in the tendrils of mist

red-cloudsAlthough our mornings comes later every day; the red sky is a beautiful promise of moisture yet to come.

sunshineAnd just for a spell, just before the clouds gathered and shoved their way toward us…the sky was just down right beautiful.

The nights come earlier and earlier now.

SNowStill it isn’t January…of which I give great Thanks!

Your friend,
