Ruminations: Constantly Creating/Re-Creating

Here. Now. The soil, the herbs, grounding me. The Spanish chocolate, the pool, transporting my senses to the place I really call home, sometimes. The gecko limerickly welcoming us to what’s rightfully his, and forever will be after we’re gone. And now this, a weekend retreat with the ladies, the art, the laughter, the wine…

Ruminations: A Day Like Any Other?

When I was little, I wanted to be either an elementary special ed teacher or a commercial artist.
