Sunset in Canyon View

This view from my home in Tucson never gets old.

After living for so many years in the Florida Keys, I never thought I would ever find a place that I could love as much as I did that place.

But I have. The desert has gotten into my bones. I love everything about it. Even the heat in August. There are always so many things to see. I could watch the road runners and lizards all day.

When I die, I want my ashes sprinkled at the base of a saguaro.

In 22 months I will be living here full time.

Pink Collage
In one week we will be on our way out to Arizona for 10 relaxing days at our home in Tucson. We are all looking forward to it. My grandson has been working hard all summer as a camp counselor  and he is especially looking forward to a restful time with no small children to look after.  Of course it goes without saying he will enjoy sleeping late as well!

It has been 4 months since we have been out there. Too long really.

Recently I unearthed my gelatin plate in order to get some interesting painted papers for collage work. I love the serendipitous nature of the gel plate. I am working a bit differently with it this time. I am not trying to make a piece of art with it. Just painted papers. It is fun and relaxing.

Well, that's it for now! See you next week from Arizona!
