I looked out to the canyon this morning and roosting on a large snag was a Red-tailed Hawk, poised for the hunt. A little while later, I heard the gentle flute-like sounds of the Sandhill Cranes flying high overhead. Please enjoy these two photos of winged victory 🙂

Bringing Coherence, Peace, and Orderliness

Coherence, peace, and order are established not by force or control, but rather purification – like dirty water, nothing is accomplished by spraying it violently, or keeping it contained. Only by filtering it does it become pure again, and fully life supporting. This is similar to the way peace is brought about, by the steady,Continue reading “Bringing Coherence, Peace, and Orderliness”

Celebrating a Peaceful Morning

The International Space Station (ISS) was due overhead at 5:47am this morning, first visible at 27 degrees altitude, due West, heading Northeast.

Nance Canyon Gamecam Photos and the Bat

A few months ago, I moved my gamecam from the back fence down to the property line, further into Nance Canyon. Here are seven photos, including one of me, and the final shot of a bat just now feeding under the eaves of the house. Enjoy!
