Out and About

“Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.”

― Henry David Thoreau, Walden

Enjoy a quick walk through the Sonoran Desert with me. Much to my delight, the mornings have been crisp and cool, and the rains continue to fall, bringing needed water and life to the American Southwest.

Enjoy the last few days of 2021. I hope they bring you peace, health, laughter, rest, and a Happy New Year’s celebration! 🥳 Thank you for visiting, viewing, and listening. Be well. 💗 Michele

    1. Walking through the desert is very different than walking through the woods. I feel nurtured and more connected when I walk through the woods – trees have a powerful energy that elevates. The desert teaches me to be very observant and to find beauty in life’s prickly, among other things. A different point of view – you are absolutely right. If you desire, I hope you are able to walk through the desert someday… until then, I am happy to share. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. ✨


    1. It is an absolute delight right now after a week of rains, with more on the way. Thank you for visiting. Happy New Year’s to you and yours! My first response to you vanished, then reappeared, so it appears you have two replies from me. 😄


    1. So true! The region is full of unique looking cacti. Sometimes quite funny in their design. 🌵 Thank you for stopping by, Tony. I hope you have a wonderful New Year’s Eve and a year of abundance in all areas of your life! 🥳

    1. It has been so nice, yes! Thank you, Dwight. Those are my two favorite photos. 😊 I also love the look of the sky in a few others. The rain has been an absolute delight. It is looking like it’s going to be a rainy New Year’s Eve night. Enjoy yours!

    1. Is that a flood of memories? haha Bad joke, I know. Thanks for mentioning that – I love taking reflection photos, especially at night, with lights on the water. ✨ This time of year, in the SW, is pleasant – nice to be out enjoying nature.
