Little Si, Seattle, Washington

“The great affair, the love affair with life, is to live as variously as possible, to groom one’s curiosity like a high spirited thoroughbred, climb aboard, and gallop over the thick, sun-struck hills every day.   Where there is no risk, the emotional terrain is flat and unyielding, and, despite all its dimensions, valleys, pinnacles, and…

Bull Run Trail, Gemini Bridges, Moab, UT

I love Moab!  There is a indescribable beauty in the grandioseness of it all and the tiny details.   It is a photographer’s dream.   It is an adventureland for explorers and seekers.   I can feel the warmth, peacefulness and strength of the rocks, the flow of the rock waves and bowls.   This place…

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”    – Mark Twain I had the most amazing opportunity to go…

So long 2014!

Looking back on 2014, it has been the worst and the best year.  My marriage of 20 years fell apart this year.   Marriage sews two people together and when a separation happens, it is like having your leg cut off.     The more violent and harsh the amputation, the harder it is to heal.    But through…

Delicate Arch, Moab, Utah

“You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again.  So why bother in the first place?  Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above.  One climbs, one sees.  One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen.  There is…

Gift

Ahhh, one of my favorite places to be.  I am back in Boulder for a yoga teacher training.    This day has been filled with a silent hot yoga class, studying, biking all over the city, more studying, practicing, drinking in some Vitamin D with the sun’s rays, listening to the flow of the creek,…

Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies

This recipe is a long time favorite, perfect for this time of year.   Warning:  These are pretty spicy with ginger, so if you don’t like too much ginger, only use 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger.   The key to making these really chewy is to refrigerate right before placing in the oven.   These go quick, I…
