Day 20: Green

Day 20: Green

I took this photo in El Yunque, a rainforest in Puerto Rico. I mainly grew up in the Southwest, so this much greenery is foreign to me. I don’t think I’ll ever forget the majesty and tranquility of that area.

That, ladies and gents, is an honest-to-goodness chicken crossing the road. Well, it may be a rooster, but you get the picture.

Day 18: Sign

Day 18: Sign

A sign I’m close. Close to being a legit writer, close to having my books rub spines with the literary greats, close to the dream. Not to get all mushy on you guys (it is Valentine’s Day, though, so surely I’m allowed, right? Right?) but having my story selected for this anthology was one of the most delightful surprises of my life. I still grin like an idiot because in that book is something I wrote. Me. It is an amazing feeling and I’m only going to get more gooey if I try to describe it and you don’t want to read about that. (If you do, because you’re a masochist, or you have time to spare, or both, see my contact information).
Anyway, just seeing this cover makes me smile. It’s a sign I’m on my way.
Happy Valentine’s Day, all!

Day 17: Old

Day 17: Old

San Xavier del Bac, a beautiful mission in Tucson. On weekends you can go to the little booths set up outside the parking lot and buy fry bread and other cool things. The inside is just as impressive.

Day 16: Blue

Day 16: Blue

No, that’s not Elton John. That’s my BFF’s son…and now I’ve said BFF because I thought it would save time, but instead, I feel silly because I said BFF. And now I’ve said BFF four times. Gosh, I hope it’s not like a Beetlejuice thing. Anyway, these are the magic blue glasses – these babies and I go way back. The world looks amazing behind these things. I share them with loved ones, and it generally makes for interesting experiences. Lol, they’re blue glasses. It is what it is, people.

Day 15: Awe-inspiring

Day 15: Awe-inspiring

It’s one thing to see the Grand Canyon in photographs, and a completely different thing to see it in person. It is absolutely beautiful, and that doesn’t come close to describing it. It’s vast and scary and full of history. It’s also a big hole…but it’s an amazing hole.

Day 14: Sad

Day 14: Sad

I love elephants. And though I appreciate being able to see animals in a zoo, I do feel bad that the animals are not wild and free in their natural habitats. I can only hope that they’re treated well wherever they may be.

Day 13: Flowers

Day 13: Flowers

Birthday flowers are among the Top Ten Types of Flowers. Well, they’re not really a type of flower, per se, but getting flowers for your birthday is always really nice. These fat pink roses were beautiful, and the scent lingered throughout the house so that I sometimes thought I’d stepped into an early 20th century parlor at tea time.
