Hi friends, it's been a while since I posted due to a number of reasons. First, my health hasn't been the best and includes an abscessed tooth which I'm having a root canal performed on next week. Then, my computer has been barely working, or at the computer repair shop, or not working at all. Its a pain in the butt to update from my phone (my iPod with 16000 songs also died- technology makes our lives so much easier, right?). I'll be returning this machine to the shop next week because, anytime now, it will freeze again.
Speaking of freezing it's been frigid around here and the snow level dropped to about 1400 feet blanketing the local hills in snow- a rare but welcome event. It did add a bit to the "holiday cheer" (is that an oxymoron?). We did make it through another round of the "Holiday Madness". I could go on and on regarding how much materialism repels me but I'll save that for another day when my tooth isn't hurting making me grumpier than usual. Time with my family is always the highlight and I did get some quality time in with my daughter and the new grand kids- Joaquin and Finley- precious angels both. What a remarkable gift they are.
My travel has been limited by the same issues I mention above but I'm bound and determined to get out to Organ Pipe this month. I'll look forward to sharing pictures and stories.
I do sincerely hope that 2015 is a banner year for you. I also hope it's a year filled with more kindness, justice and peace for all of us.
I can't wait to start feeling better and head for Cactus Country.
This will mostly be a journal of my travels. I may include other items that interest me. Feel free to join in.
