I made this piece at the request of a dear friend. Well, she requested a round , black stone and I took it from there. I’m forever and always inspired by this grand universe and onyx is a modern gemstone of Saturn and this is what came together. It almost called to me and it […]
On the vernal equinox, I spent most of the day doing one of my favorite things, abandoned house hunting in Wonder Valley. The weather was perfect, as were the clouds. I’ve amassed quite the collection of photos of these homesteads over the past few years. The crazy thing is, I’m not even close to having […]

In the years I lived in Albuquerque, I somehow never managed to make my way to the Gathering of Nations. I decided it was due time to change that. Following what was my first good night’s sleep and two substantial New Mexican meals, I took my semi-coherent self to the pit. Although attending alone, I […]
I really saw a whole heck of a lot. Being that I’m starting to feel like I have weeks of posts about the ol adventure, here’s one that’s a little condensed. Randoms and the places they were found. Navajo Twin Rocks, Utah Chimney Rock in Ute Mountain Tribal Park, Colorado Old San Miguel Mission, Socorro, […]
