Time Flies


The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.

~Michael Altshuler~


Today is our final day at Hacienda Linda, the beautiful house we made our home for the last month. Our leaving is bittersweet, as if often the case in saying goodbye. I will miss my morning perch, the adirondack chair, sitting in the midst of the breathtaking beauty of the high dessert, the colorful sunsets, the tranquility, the purple finches that sang to us every day. . . I could go on and on but I won’t because pecking away on the keyboard of this iPhone is not one of my favorite things to do. Our time here has been fruitful and we know in our hearts that we have found our new future home in the high desert of New Mexico. In the meantime we head back to our beautiful home in Seattle to enjoy our life there until it’s time to be here.


Bella with her ball
And Hannah chasing geckos
Happy dogs at play


The earth’s raw beauty
Awakens my soul each day
Bringing inner peace


Adirondack chair
An outside office for Ed
Healthy place to work


This will most likely be my last post from Galisteo. Tomorrow we will be in Colorado for our first stop on our trip home. Once home my intention is to continue to write Haiku, keep creating entries in my collage journal and hold on to, and keep alive, the parts of myself that I’ve discovered here in the high desert.

Enjoy your day. Enjoy your life.
