ShareI’m having an affair.  I thought you should be the first to know.  You’ve likely surmised as much if you follow my social media updates. But I thought I should come clean with my confession here, in a more intimate setting: I’m passionately in love with nature. “Earth laughs in flowers.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson […]

Share                I love lights and sparkle and glimmer and shimmer as much as anyone, but I think nature can fit the bill for “festive” as well. Today’s Twitter #FriFoto theme is just that; festive.  My mind turned to this one recent favorite snapshot I took of nearby Lake […]

ShareGratitudinousness.  It’s one of my favorite conjured words. And it really works in that gratitude is such a BIG concept…I think it kinda needs more greedy letters “We don’t need more to be thankful for, we might just need to be more thankful.” Unknown Many who know me in my life and on Twitter and […]

ShareI should have known better. Here I thought I had seen all of the magic and delights that my little yet fantabulous artful town could muster, and I was once again broadsided. Oops, “broad-sided” might be actually too apt a word for what hit me recently on another enchanting night at Café Aroma… as in […]

Snowshoeing Idyllwild: What a Way to Winter Wonderland it!

Share I once held the opinion that snow shoeing seemed dull and plodding.  I was foolishly comparing it to my other winter sport of choice: downhill skiing.  Now I know better True, there is the absence of the adrenaline rush, unless you count, of course, the hair curling screams of local abominable snow beasts lurking […]

ShareI figured out my own YouTube account just in time to share some gems from this event I participated in and enjoyed this past weekend.  Which is a good thing, because when it comes to belly dancing and fusion dance styles, words just don’t do it justice!  The entire production was planned and orchestrated by […]

ShareI did it!  We hiked to a real life peak – AND I procured the very coveted Squirrel Card from the rangers at the fire look-out tower! Specs: Tahquitz Peak 8828’ Elevation 8.6 Miles OK, so it’s not a monster, but it’s a fine start I think.  Went up the south ridge trail and by […]
