I will



hike to the outdoor chapel . on a hill where the sky feels so close

mo2011



marvel at unique blooms of bold and soft shapes . tender yet vibrant colors

laugh with both daughters in this summer place of work and play

love of my life



relax in their home away . tucked in the vast hills of far away tree tops

embrace it all beneath a west texas sunset over a cool river

some of these outdoor photos are from my trip last summer

then sisters posed last month on mothers day . a gift

now a needed break from blogging as I reconnect

with two that define joy and art in my eyes

in a land that quietly shines

be well friends

back soon
