Treasure in earthen vessels...

This little Pueblo pot will remind me 
of many things from the Taos trip.

Did you know you have fire inside you?

Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, NM

We visited Ghost Ranch.
This land inspired Georgia O'Keffee's paintings.

 Attack of the tumbleweed...

Abiquiu was spectacular!
I'm also inspired!!

Thanksgiving in Taos, NM

San Francisco de Asis Mission Church  

We spent Thanksgiving in Taos, NM.  I'm always enchanted with this land. Always.

The Rio Grande Gorge 
I spotted a Big Horn Sheep!

The Pueblo Site

Even though I'm back home now, I can still smell the pinion fires and sage.
It was brisk, beautiful, spiritual and earthy.  
I met some 'strangers' in a supernatural way - sisters in Christ and we prayed together.
A Pueblo brother and I embraced and blessed each other. 
And that lone ram for my eyes and soul...

Give~away Follow up ~~

 I'd like to follow up on the recent give-away ~
I've already mailed off some leaves (earrings),
but did not have addresses for Joy & Spirit & Sage.
Please e-mail me your addresses and 
I will send you a little packet from Prairie Hill.

GOD IS GOOD!  I'm shouting it from the rooftop, 
from the mountain, from the roof of my mouth,
from my mountainous being!  

So many good things have been happening to me,,,
my cup is running over... the saucer is running over,,,

There are obvious outward blessings,
but I'm also sensing the the invisible spiritual seeds
in me are blessed as well...

Gracious Glorious Days

Anniversary Weekend: Oktoberfest and Museum in Tulsa

 Inside and out…. flowers!

  The Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa is one of my favorite museums!
I would travel really far to see it, but fortunately  it's only 3 hours northeast from here.
  The museum is an Italian Renaissance villa and garden!  Here's the history
Philbrook has an amazing permanent collection and spectacular exhibits.
 We were amused by the bright and bold Warhols this time.  It suited me 
perfectly as I've been craving color under a few grey days around here. 
Oh, we also enjoyed a special three generation Wyeth exhibit.

Behold! We put on Dirndl and Lederhosen again and celebrated one last
Oktoberfest in Tulsa.  I couldn't believe it!  The guy who won the
Bratwurst eating contest consumed 66 Bratwursts!!   


We celebrated our 5th anniversary!
October (and it's not over yet), was a grand month for us!

Oktoberfestin' in Austin

We headed to Austin for our Fall Break.
It's what we did last year.
This time we checked out the annual Oktoberfest. 

We enjoyed gelatos, Americanos and listening to poets reciting under a crescent moon…

The next day we checked out Barton Springs and the Zilker Botanical Gardens. 

Some food and shopping…

Austin keepin' it weird.

I spent time looking through old photographs in the antique stores 
and only bought these two.  Just unique enough with those double 
exposure images.  I will probably just glue them into my journal 
to remind me of this fun and wonderful trip.  The weather, by the 
way, was anything but fall-like.  It was 85 and sunny!
