It’s been a while since I have posted. I’ve been busy.
First the home. It’s a place of peace and warmth. Thus far I have filled it with all the things I love: my music, my art, and warm natural woods and sounds.
As I type this I’m watching two yellow-tailed hawks circle outside my window. Thus far I’ve seen cougar tracks, dozens of deer, a whole flock of turkey, rabbits, foxes, and a bazillion birds who have taken up residence because I feed them. There is no sound here but the chirping sounds of birds and the wind in the trees.
I am going to be doing all sorts of land and garden improvements to the home. I am turning the pond into a Monet pond, I’m doing a large labyrinth in the front yard, there will be a salsa garden this year, and I’m turning the backyard into a rock garden. I will be sharing with you as I do these. I take any and all suggestions for ways to do things better so I hope you will follow me and chime in with your expertise as you see fit!
I have fallen into Heaven.

Fool that I was, upon my eagle’s wings I bore this wren, till I was tired with soaring, and now he mounts above me. ~John Dryden
So I was minding my own business snapping shots of a heron as the tide was going out. A few baby ducks were swimming about the buoy when all of the sudden down swoops an eagle trying to snatch one of the ducklings. Birds and ducks scatter everywhere and the eagle retreats up into a tree. Right above my head. I say, of course “hey there, Mr. Eagle!” and he cocks his head and stares down at me.
The rain was pouring pretty heavily when I took these photos. It was worth getting wet.
