Lapis Lazuli Blue

Just so you know, green is my favorite color. I had a lovely string of malachite beads that I used for my prayerful meditations. A friend who was going through a difficult divorce, needed some extra encouragement, and so I gave them to her, as green is her favorite color too. When looking for a … Continue reading Lapis Lazuli Blue

Ants in your pants

That's right folks, it is time for another adventure from the ranch! When we got our property, it was overrun with thistles. That first summer it was an everyday job to spray them with weed killer, made specially for them.

Hands off!

A turtle walks into a bar, but the owner grabs it and throws it out. It came back five months later and yells, “Get your hands off me!” The phrase hands off implies the establishing of boundaries. It is behavior characterized by non-intervention and non-interference. My word for this year is Freedom. I am working … Continue reading Hands off!
