Christmas In The Desert.

With so many people making merry, please be extra careful on the roads. Stay safe, keep warm, be careful and have fun.

Happy Holidays! 

May 2009 be the best year ever.

Silent Night, Holy Night,

All is calm, All is bright.

 Christmas Eve, 2008.

Sunset on Christmas Eve.


Peace on earth, good will toward men.


Reaching for the stars.


Watercolor skies.


Sleep in heavenly peace. 






The Terriers on Christmas Day, 2008.

The day after Christmas, 2008.


Winter Monsoon storm clouds.


Saguaros in silhouette.


Day is done ...


Gone the sun ...


The pink of dusk.


Dusk meets the night.


Day is done, gone the sun
From the lake, from the hill, from the sky.
All is well, safely rest.
God is nigh.


Thanks and praise, for our days,
’Neath the sun, ‘neath the stars,
’Neath the sky.

 As we go, this we know,
God is nigh.

  4. Thank you, Dara! I hope your holidays were wonderful. My terriers say thank you! Or, they would, if I could pull them away from their toys (each had their own stocking) from Santa.

    How is your new puppy? Are you completely and thoroughly wrapped around that little paw, yet? : )

    And thanks on the photos. Monsoon season is the real benefactor of such breathtaking scenes, with all those clouds at sunset.


  5. Hey Kat! Hugs back at you. : )

    I’ve been thinking of you, too, my friend. I’m behind on emails due to a few writing deadlines that had me working through the holidays, and some beta reading, but I hope to catch up through the week.

    Did you remember to light your candle at noon on Christmas Day?


  6. Thank you, Dube!
