William's Canyon

William's Canyon is still beautiful, but dangerous to hike since last summer's flooding. I fear some fool will hike there when it starts to rain, something bad will happen, and make it even more complicated for those of us who are smarter about such things. What used to be a path, has been washed away and burnt pieces of wood from Waldo Canyon are piled along the stream. Cave of the Winds continues to expand its amusement park distractions up above. Yet I still saw Towhees, Hummingbirds, Ravens and what I think are Swifts along the canyon walls.

Estate Sale Finds

I find it so sad to see all of someone's junk laid out next to their prized possessions, all for sale and people pawing through it to find a bargain. You can still smell and feel the presence of the person who recently passed. You can see their life -- you're walking through their home! I try to be respectful, and hope that they'd be glad someone else is finding joy in their belongings, passing them on to future generations.

Living with Light

My morning coffee with a banana walnut scone and organic strawberries;
reading the beautiful Axel Vervoordt: Living with Light book.
