Staying Grounded on Earth Day!

Today, the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, is a great day to reflect not only the changes we can make to help the earth's ecosystem, but also why. For me my child's future, health and happiness is more then enough reason to do my best for the earth. I want her to be able to roll down the grassy hill in summer, lay down under the Aspens in fall and be amazed by the contrast of golden leaves and blue sky, to build snowmen in the winter snow, and the experience the rebirth of spring each year. My daughter keep me grounded and aware of how my actions effect so many things.

We all have our own reason to help the earth's ecosystem and the important thing is to do our best each day. Whether your contribution is small or large, it is a step forward and when we add up each small step we will realized that all those small steps have created real change.

Have a beautiful day,

Dreaming in Spring

I dreamed of soft white blooms against a sky blue.
I dreamed of the warmth of the sun on my skin.
Dreaming in spring of things that are true.

Spring Emerges - Tulip

The days grow longer and warmer. Birds sing the songs of spring while beautiful greens, yellows and reds emerge from the ground.

I have yearned for spring for the last few months and finally it is here.

Enjoy the beauty.

Spring Snow in Santa Fe

One of my favorite streets in Santa Fe is Garcia Street. It is just off the famous Canyon Road, know for it's many wonderful art galleries.
The gallery I work for part-time, Mark White Fine Art, is just off this street and I took these photos a couple of weeks ago just after the last spring snow and right before work. The sky was gray with the threat of more show, but it was so beautiful.
If you ever visit Santa Fe this is a great area to visit. There is a great little coffee shop called the Downtown Subscription that serves the best cafe mocha, Garcia Street Books, and the Photo-eye Gallery and Bookshop, in a small corner just a block off of Canyon Road. On Canyon road there are many wonderful galleries with all types of arts and crafts represented.

I hope you enjoyed! Have a wonderful and warming spring!

I can't decide!!

Eight people entered my contest and each had a great title or two. They were all so wonderful that I could not decide on just one, so I putting my favorites in a poll and the person with the most votes will win!
The polls close in a week and the final winner will be announced on Monday, April 19th.

Now for the winner of the ACEO. There were a few people who I entered their names, because they put it on Facebook and let me know via email. The number generator came up with 1 which is Kaelin (who tweeted and facebook-ed). Yea for Kaelin Cordis, she will get to choose the ACEO she likes best!

Thank you to all who entered my contest and helped spread the word.
