It was 3° F when I woke up this morning…





Last night, when I arrived home from work at around 11:00 pm, I found some remarkable gifts/works of art on my window! It was tricky to clearly capture the textures of the frost (focus and light seemed to have a mind of their own), but the floral patterns were so remarkable, the technical details didn’t seem to matter…


It was also impossible to choose only one photo to share, so I hope you enjoy these several… And Happy 12/12/12!

lookin’ out my front window in the morning…

Well, actually it’s my front window… But you get the idea…

My first morning in my new home, and this is what I’m greeted with.

I’m not sure I’ll be able to hang window treatments over this view!

It’s so great to be here in Pagosa (and to have learned how to properly pronounce “Colorado”). Don’t have much besides the views, but that doesn’t seem to matter.

Here’s hoping you’re all doing fantastically!

For my dear friends Tauno and Lisa…

a jewel of a hidden corner…


(this is a stream near my house… I enhanced the colors and sparkle in Gimp… although the stream truly has a magical quality…)

To my dear friend Babajij… always near…
