Taking it all in… My latest artistic endeavor – this will be a bookmark and will not have the white bit at the top. So far, so good. Amazing how wee bites of artichoke can fill a person up. Or, maybe it’s the butter… Frost and burning fog always make for a pretty picture or […] The po

Homemade marshmallows! This batch, for the holidays, were peppermint, and oh SO good. A niche shelf with the painting of Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak I bought in Manitou Springs and promised to show you. No tree this year, but the holiday mantel was pretty lovely!

Whoa! I don’t know what happened, but it sure looks cool. That’s better! My friend Bebe is one of my dearest companions. She is funny, generous, kind, and smart. We love to bead together (making jewelry, mostly), and can talk up a storm on any and every topic. She’s also fearless and lived all over: [&#

In keeping with the work I did with the Belong book, on examining my life and friendships more honestly and with the goal of surrounding myself with the kindest and most positive, there’s been a slow winnowing of people, these in particular: The woman who wants everyone who doesn’t agree with her locked up an

There is a story of a woman running away from tigers. She runs and runs and the tigers are getting closer and closer. When she comes to the edge of a cliff, she sees some vines there, so she climbs down and holds on to the vines. Looking down, she sees that there are tigers […] The post

Our morning walk is a cold one. Hats and gloves and puffs of hot breath. Most days, though we live smack-dab in the city, we see no other humans. We see their gravelly footprints. We hear their cars racing and spy their contrails flying to greener pastures. At least, I hope. It is so curious […] The post

A Ghost Story – a beautiful meditation on grief and our deep connection to people and places. A bit magical, too. Sweet Bean – Oh, gosh, gosh, gosh. A fil-um about really recognizing what is important. Kindness. Small joys. Connection to others. Making food that brings joy to others. Lean on Pete – Writ

Lighting it up in Manitou Springs. I know I have mentioned it before, but I must reiterate my delight at this tiny town. How it takes me right back to my eight-year-old self off on a jaunt with my family. A time when gift shops were filled with rock candy and honey-colored plaques and boxes […] The post

Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you’ve got a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies- “God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.” Kurt Vonnegut The pos

This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor…Welcome and entertain them all.

Have you ever felt so drawn to a place that it defies explanation? Round a bend of highway where you have never lived and felt the most incredible sensation of home? That, to me, has always, always been Southern Colorado and New Mexico. For fellow travelers who know where I-25 bends just south of Larkspur […]
