Sedona Secret Revealed

When I first glimpsed this home in Sedona, AZ I was livid.
Who dared to "spoil" the landscape? 
Then I thought maybe I'm just a wee bit jealous because...
I'd sure love to live here (but only if I have a housekeeper
and groundskeeper). 
I was curious as to who owned this perfect spot when...
lo and behold a comment on one of my photos from a kindred spirit
had the answer.
Go here for it. 
Scroll through the beautiful photos until you, too, find the 
secret revealed.

Fierce Rabbit

"This is a fierce bad rabbit;
look at his savage whiskers,
and his claws and his turned-up tail."
--Beatrix Potter
Not really...but try telling that to my dog; 
he chased the poor rabbit away...

Bottomless Pond

While some men believe in the infinite,
some ponds will be thought to be

Most people in the city rush around so, 
they have no time to look at a flower...
I want them to see it whether they want to or not...

Fire in Los Alamos, NM

 This fire at Los Alamos, NM scorched a section of the Tech Area 49, used for a series of underground tests with high explosives and radioactive materials.
Here, the sun tries to penetrate the smoke at Los Alamos. Hopefully they'll soon get the fires under control.

In the Sea

...touching on
the crystal architecture
of the sea anemone...
I want to tell you the ocean knows this, that life in its
jewel boxes
is endless as the sand...
Enigmas by Pablo Neruda

Beloved Little Lady 
Child of Sunshine,
Child of Starlight,
Child of Moonlight Grace.
Shine your joyous light of love
on all who find this place.
In memory of Lori Meislin

And Why This Tree?

I'm posting a picture of this special tree in honor of a blogging friend. You can find her link here:  Pam has 40+ Christmas trees every year. She knows how many hours I spend at the computer, so she gave me this special tree that plugs into the computer keyboard! It's so special, with lights and stars, that I decided to keep it plugged in all year round. Thank you, Pam!
