that this acorn opens up! I asked Barbara what I could keep in there. With a wry smile, she suggested two extra-strength Advil. Haaa. I was thinking of a dodo feather, but hey. Let's get real.
We drank in the sunset at Lizard Head, and reveled in each others' presence. We plotted on how we might get together again.
Everywhere we looked was beauty. When artists convene in the desert, look out. There's gonna be some heavy appreciatin' going on.
Look at those lovebirds! Just seeing them together made my heart fill up.
In such a place, with such lovely people. If only the sunset could have gone on all night.
Russell borrowed my phone and produced this image. Please, borrow it more. It is he who constructs the botanically perfect pendants, articulated, that move and open up just as the plant or flower does. He is an artist, but he's also a mad genius engineer.
Barbara made a portrait of me against a flaming sunset.
I felt more like myself out here than I had in years. Sedona makes me feel hopeful. Like there's a bigger world out there waiting for me, like I'm ready to start a new chapter. Maybe it's in the vortices.
But I think it's probably in the love of new, old, forever friends. Here's to meeting and cementing friendships, and making online connections real, in the flesh.
Now go buy intelligent jewelry.
