Sorry…

March 5, 2017

I just drifted off. It’s March. It’s cold. And, a bunch of Daffodils can only do so much. Close your eyes and picture this. A tiny poured concrete casita in the Mexican desert. One bedroom, one bed, one bath, an indoor/outdoor kitchen, a pool and a private beach. Perfect.

The Perfect Rx

February 27, 2015

Nothing puts me on the road to Winter recovery like the first of March. And, with the first of March comes that perfect shot in the arm…the Daffodil. Simple joy and happiness found anywhere and everywhere by the generous handful for a couple of bucks. Is there anything quite like their gentle fragrance and burst of color when Winter is still trying to dig its heals in with bone chilling cold?

Doesn’t it always come?

February 26, 2014

Spring…yes, it does eventually get here. Patience is key as Spring is officially still weeks away. This experimental watercolor by Lourdes Sanchez reminds me how faint washes of color appear through the wet melting gray that was winter. A peak of blue through the heavy skies…the pinking of buds awakening in a monotonous landscape…the slow greening of moss with the help of a little sun.
