Horse on a foggy day

Mr. Ortega’s Horse

  Magnificent in carriage, royalty on four flashing hooves. One with earth and sky, restless, going from grazing to galloping, just like that! Eager for attention, yet shy. Gliding across the field, allied with the natural world. Sailing with ease over golden grasses, haughty and humble at the same time. Optimal energy in every stride,… Read More ›

Book Signing

The Signing Experience

I’ve done several readings at Tome on the Range in Las Vegas, NM, featuring my books. Every time I do one, I’m a wreck and second-guess whether I said the right things and whether people received my reading well. On Saturday at my most recent reading and signing, my friend Jim Terr recorded portions of… Read More ›

Joy Riding

Happy Halloween

Hootie tunes and shrieking screams scary thingies in your dreams. On this haunted, hunted night what next on tap will give you fright? Creeping, leaping, jumping, sneaking is that a ghost at whom you’re peeking? Tiptoe back, slither down the hall when spooky phantoms on you call. Get into a warm and comfy bed, pull… Read More ›

EVERGREEN

EVERGREEN

  Ever green is the evergreen, stately, piercing the blue sky. From a distance I see an outline of a metropolis on some distant planet. On a trail in their midst I am a midget next to a giant, a flittering moth flashing through sun rays that pierce the shade. Surrounded by pine and spruce,… Read More ›

Chili Ristra

Autumn’s Favor

Come autumn, Mom couldn’t pass up a roadside farm stand. She had to stop, shop, buy. The bright array of produce – juicy apples – plump pumpkins – piquant chili peppers – green and yellow squash and more, much better than any store. Vibrant color, mixed aromas of melons, dirt from the field, sawn wood… Read More ›

In Bloom

Get Ready

  Life is not about big moments; it is comprised of many small events. Some leave you cold and confused, others plant tiny seeds of love. Big moments come and go, we’re never entirely ready for them. Small acts of kindness take root and re-form who we are. Get ready to be surprised by joy… Read More ›

Leonora - Light

INSPIRATION

Tea, dark and strong, bearing a type of beauty in its shadowy depths. My jaded spirit rises on wisps of steam. I feel the Leonora of my spirit, right, faithful and true, not some sleepy sprite, but a song of focused certainty leaking out of my brain one word, one line at a time.
