Living Between the Lines

Happy Birthday, December!

To Everyone Born in December May you always have a fire by which to sit and think. “I sit by the fire and think of all that I have seen, Of meadow-flower and butterflies in summers that have been; Of yellow leaves and gossamer in autumns that were there, With morning mist and silver sunContinue reading “Happy Birthday, December!”

The Wrath of Grapes

Clouds Over the Vineyard The sticker in the window stated “My Governor is an Idiot.” Sheesh! What kind of person puts that on display? What thoughts and feelings prompted someone to make that sticker, another person to sell it, and another person to buy it? I mean, what the hey? I guess there is nothingContinue reading “The Wrath of Grapes”

Windom Peak

July 2022 Windom Peak is the highest summit of the Needle Mountains range of the Rocky Mountains, located approximately 28 miles north of Durango, Colorado. I did not know the name of Windom Peak growing up in Durango; I saw it whenever we drove to Grand Junction, and that was enough for me. I neverContinue reading “Windom Peak”

Santa Rosa Creek

October 2022 Claudia, June Bear, and I left Cambria and headed for Paso Robles via the Santa Rosa Creek road. Claudia was driving, which left me free to watch Santa Rosa Creek peek in and out of the trees. I was also free to get quite turned around in where I was on the planet.Continue reading “Santa Rosa Creek”

Happy Birthday, November!

To everyone born in November May your pilgrim soul have a “wanderful” day. June Bear and her friend agree with Oscar Wilde: “Life is too important to be taken seriously.”

Black Cat

Rocks or Sand Some people think you should take care of the big things first and the small things last. It’s like filling a jar with rocks first and then sand. Everything fits. If you put the sand in first, there isn’t enough room for all of the rocks. But what do the rocks andContinue reading “Black Cat”

The Air of the Fowls

Kings River at Cricket Hollow Park Although you may not see them, about a million birds hang out in the trees along Kings River. Occasionally a little fellow will flutter to the ground to check things out, but then he will head back to one of the branches. The grass is cool, the soil hasContinue reading “The Air of the Fowls”

San Juan National Forest

October 2022 On Highway 160 between Cortez and Durango, the desert scrub gradually gives way to mountain greenery. The speed limit is 70 miles per hour, but when I was child, it seemed like it took forever. When I was sixteen and newly licensed, my dad and I made that drive with me at theContinue reading “San Juan National Forest”

The Beach House

September 2022 This painting was inspired by sketch I saw. I don’t remember the name of the artist – if I find it later, I will revise this post to give him or her credit. I painted in the house my family owns in Cayucos. It’s fun to see the place in this setting. HaveContinue reading “The Beach House”

Happy Birthday, October!

To everyone born in October May the universe always give you a song. “Come away, O human child! To the waters and the wild! With a faery, hand in hand, For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.” William Butler Yeats
