Just as we were gifted an extended and lovely autumn, winter has come with intensity, making its presence known in our high mesa country lives following the solstice. As I sit across from the computer screen, typing, another wave of moisture is entering the state. Here are some surprises nature left this week.

Icicles hanging from every available upright were complicated as well. The first image shows the full icicle, while the second and third include details of the top and bottom of the ice.
And life would simply not be the same without evidence of animals as they make their way through the snow. The mouse tracks below were crisp and clear as if applied with a very acute paintbrush.
My hope for 2019 is that each of you is able to practice or enjoy art and life, and that only good prevails on Planet Earth!
until next Monday,
