Blood & Thunder Release

I had some prose included in Blood & Thunder this year.
We enjoyed the release reception on the beautiful
OU campus this evening.

This publication is always filled with great
artwork and writings musing on medicine
through the arts....

NATURE: Mostly walks around Prairie Hill

A prairie garter snake traveled through our wild back yard, 
or maybe it has made a permanent home here... not poisonous
 or aggressive (and pretty) so it's welcome to stick around.


I can't get enough of the sunsets lately.
I walk Prairie Hill at this time just to see 
the last burn in the sky and in the lake.... 

I've also been spooking a lot of deer.
And I think about the coyotes that roam this
way and it makes me walk a little faster. ha.

We celebrated our anniversary this week.
I love him so.

Craziest thing I have found yet on Prairie Hill. 1+5 = $6

Something I made for the table which was inspired by
this moment in my backyard (July)....
Though it's more of an autumn scene now.

Wish you a HAPPY week!

TRAVEL: Austin, Texas

Austin is fun!  I feel comfortable here, maybe because I once lived near here for twelve years....
We dined, we shopped (I bought that prairie dress on the right!), we visited the
Bob Bullock Texas History Museum, we walked 6th street.
It's only a six hours drive from our SW, Oklahoma. 
A friendly neighbor - Texas.

TRAVEL: On the way to the Pedernales River

the river finally
they're called Cowpen Daisies!  
and they were everywhere as we got closer to the pedernales river!
a~buzz with bees and a~flutter with monarchs - 
i stuck my nose and my all right in -
into their intoxicating smell and mesmerizing yellow aura!  
it was heavenly!!! 
 these daisies grow from april - october,
so we were fortune to enjoy their beauty still this late in autumn.
