Lilacs and Cherry Blossoms and All That

It's Spring— in spite of the drought.


Nice view!!
This owl's job is to discourage the morning doves from nesting in the trees in the yard of a friend who lives nearby. He has some help—others of the same ilk—but they're not at all effective. The doves carry on, as if to say, you look sort of real. Or maybe the doves are so intent on following their own instincts that an inanimate owl doesn't even register for them. You see these composition owls around the city of Albuquerque. I've noticed them suspended from the under supports of I-25 as I pass under it driving various east and west streets that lead from the Heights, through downtown, to the Valley of this city.

May you hold your sorrows in great kindness and compassion

Sometimes, an abundance…water from the overflow of the Rio Grande

Loving Kindness

Polychrome clay Tree of Life, Mexico

May you be filled with loving kindness.
May you be safe from inner and outer dangers.
May you be held in tender compassion for all your sorrows.
May you be well in body and mind.
May you find peace, and may you be free.


(words of meditation borrowed from Jack Kornfield)
