Play, search the stars, chase the clouds. It has taken millions of years to create that “reality suit” you are wearing. There is nothing on the earth like it. Respect it, explore it, use it. Yes, there is work. There is suffering. There is justice that needs pursuing, but rest, play and wonder. Lay on a hill, feel the synchronicity of all the world in motion and give yourself the gift of play.

The things that mushroom will do to take the spotlight. Venture into the surreal with clouds so full and clear with a pink and gold confection.

Living among the Blue Ridge Mountains in Southwest Virginia, I am surrounded by overwhelming beauty every day. I have taken to cloud chasing.

Hot Round up

When I was a teenager this was my favorite ride. Feeling the centrifugal force press me against the wall was the most comforting feeling.

We have so little time at the carnival. Give yourself time to play.
