Time to hit the road again

It's nearly evening in this land of glowing red rocks. Zory and I are enjoying cocktail hour complete with hors d'oeuvres. OK, I lied. I'M enjoying cocktail hour. Zory is hiding under the bed. Had a wonderful day hiking and taking hilarious pictures and being in awe of this area of Sedona. Last night I was trying to figure out how to make a living here because this is an absolutely astounding area. Blasts of energy swirl around in the oddest places. The sunshine is healing. The red rocks of Sedona are filled with other worldly presence. I am so glad we came.

But as of this afternoon, I know this is not the place for me to live. Come to heal and hike and learning? Absolutely. Put up with the windy roads and construction and round abouts? Nah. The homes on the hills do not blend in with the landscape no matter what the building codes. Color and curved buildings do not make landscape art.

So off Zory and I will go tomorrow. That is IF I can get her out from under the bed. She has been there almost constantly since we arrived in Sedona yesterday. Verrry odd! She has been terrific up till this. Even sitting eagerly on the edge of the bed when I'm packing each morning. But here, she's not happy. Sigh!!! I thought she'd be as goofy about the place as I am but no. I'll let Zory have her own sensibilities about life as she does for me.


  1. The grey sky has melded with the darkening snow. Pampass fronds wave hello! like delicate lacy handkerchiefs. Bunny tracks and the inevitable pebbles they leave behind pepper the yard and Shep has made sure to mark the paths through the snow. The farm has settled in for winter and the long wait for your next visit. I can't help but recall the flow of energies that we felt on our trip out to western Nebraska as I read of your journey. Such an amazing opportunity for you, this journey towards home finding you. May your way be filled with wonders and joys and every door a welcoming one...

  2. This blog stuff is odd. I check each day to see if there is a new post and today I find one from Thursday. Sounds as if you are having a lovely time. Hope the journeu continues to be fruitful
    and that eventually you find what you are looking for. I am about to put lights on the tree and tomorrow we will decorate. Enjoy!
