La Buena Vida

Shifting gears
back to something so familiar
and making it new--
Taking what you've learned and
adding that to what you already know.
I think that must be growth.
It seems like sometimes we have to change directions
first this way then that way.
I changed direction at the end of the year---
started opening up with the desert landscapes.
A short detour with "The Day of the Dead"
And now I find myself back in familiar territory
but with a new perspective.

Everything is blooming most recklessly;
if it were voices instead of colors,
there would be an unbelievable shrieking
into the heart of the night.

"Strawberries are for Girls" says Kat

I know a place
Where the rose sun shines.
And rain falls
