Beauty Everywhere

This Stone.
Rocky Butte Picture.
Can you see everything as clearly as I can?
Red Hills
Rainy Sunset Sky with the sun shining through
Green Shrubs growing in the pale sand
You can see the rain!!!

Lately (hah- as long as I have been here) there has been so much beauty here in Petaluma
in so many ways: the houses, the spring flowers growing wild and beloved in yards that we get to see on our evening walks....

Even all the sadness has a kind of gorgeousness to it: solitude is becoming an amazing experience. I am reading a book called Broken Open about how the most challenging things in life can be flames we rise from transformed and even fuller.

I am off to research cupcakes: it's a tough job, but surely someone must do it!!!

Pretty stone. Good luck with those cupcakes - I am avoiding the work that needs to be done at my real job by doing apple spice cake research! Must make dessert tonight.
