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. Treat each guest honorably. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grat

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 […]

The ship of my life may or may not be sailing on calm and amiable seas. The challenging days of my existence may or may not be bright and promising. Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights, I maintain an attitude of gratitude. If I insist on being pessimistic, there is always tomorrow. Today […] The

Oh, the chill we’ve had as of late! But how the frost pretties up the landscape makes braving the icy winds worth it. Cuddling with my favorite newborn! Made this beautiful cheesecake in celebration of the little one’s parents and grammie visiting. I gilded the lily by dousing it in caramel sauce. No one comp

inside out This and the two above: Linda Fleming Most handsome and best companion Greetings from Friday night! It is exceedingly rare for us to have two events in one day, so you know it’s pretty special when we do.

Hello, and happy Monday to you! Friday afternoon, I had the very special pleasure of attending a dissolution ceremony of a Mandala honoring the Compassion Buddha. Monks from the Ngari Institute spent three days creating this exquisitely fine and intricate work of art. It was then swept into a pile, distributed among atte

Wednesday morning welcome –  a most delightful change in the weather. And then yesterday, velvet fog, which will, forever and always, be the softest Portland mornings, waking up cold and happy in a blanket of mist. <<>> And just because – a little Stevie Ray Vaughn. Sometimes I need more guit

If hot red is for anger and rage, pink is the color of a soft burning – hot enough to light up the dark corners of sadness and grief, but cool enough to be tender, innocent, open. Ibi Zoboi The post Soft Burning appeared first on

Pike’s Peak in a cloud hug! I volunteer at a retirement home, spending time with hospice patients. One of my ladies, when asked if she had a nice view, said, “It’s nothing much.” Not taking her at her word because I am a woman of my own mind, I glanced out and saw Pike’s Peak. […]

  I am who I am. A coincidence no less unthinkable than any other. I could have different ancestors, after all. I could have fluttered from another nest or crawled bescaled from under another tree. Nature’s wardrobe holds a fair supply of costumes: spider, seagull, field mouse. Each fits perfectly right off an

And over one more set of hills, along the sea, the last roses have opened their factories of sweetness and are giving it back to the world. If I had another life I would want to spend it all on some unstinting happiness. I would be a fox, or a tree full of waving branches. […] The post

Good morning from a slow unspooling of morning in Avon. We rose with the sun and sauntered along the Eagle, reveling in the rich light. How lucky I am, truly – to have such fine companions, to be able of body, light in spirit, and have the infinite glory of the beloved West at my […] The post

Hey there! Off we go on last weekend’s most beautiful almost fall road trip. The best traveling dog we know takes time to savor the view – literally! How cute is Juniper carrying her own weight?! The one downfall is her lack of awareness about her increased girth, bashing into legs (mostly mine), trees, and [

 A playlist to represent a little bit of everything I love: Ella Fitzgerald – “Blue Skies” – My favorite singer of ALL TIME. The scatting! Look it up and whose photo does it show? ELLA! The queen. John Coltrane – “Blue Train” Miles Davis – “Stella by Starlight”

Oh gosh, the morning air lately. I wake up chilled and cuddle the hubster while the light changes. Sometimes we chat of all that woke up swimming in our brains. Funny stories, dreams – little and big, rages and raves. Then we’re up and out and walking and taking in the beauties of this great and […]

Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you. You must travel it by yourself. It is not far. It is within reach. Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know. Perhaps it is everywhere – on water and land. Walt Whitman The post

The living can’t quit living because the world has turned terrible, and people they love and need are killed. They can’t because they don’t. The light that shines into darkness and never goes out calls them on into life. It calls them back again into the great room. It calls them into their bodies and [

Peace demands the most heroic labor and the most difficult sacrifice. It demands greater heroism than war. It demands greater fidelity to the truth and a much more perfect purity of conscience. Thomas Merton The post Purity appeared first on

Oh gosh, we are so tired around here. After hours and hours of landscaping and gardening, all that moving to and fro, to and fro, fingers sore, arms so very brown from such labor, I am ready for stillness. To not wonder if I have time to walk with Greg and Juniper come morning or […] The post

The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic, as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.  Alan Watts The post Meaning appeared first on

Hello! Juniper models for our latest bit of progress. I spread the remainder of the mulch this morning, woot! What a relief to have that behind us. And now, we are t-minus three days to the reason for the BIG push to get all these home projects completed. We’re hosting our cousin’s seventh birthday party [

  Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!” Hunter S. Thompson The post
