Time for Tuesday Beauty


Here in northern Colorado we’ve been bombarded with visual images of the fire that rages in the foothills to the west of us.

Our skies are smoky; our hearts are heavy.

And four days into it, we’re already exhausted, even though this looks to be a long battle.


I need to shift gears for myself, and I thought perhaps, you’d like it as well.

Just for a little breather.

I feel relaxed just looking at this picture of Mija napping beside the blooming clematis.

What I really want to do is crawl into the grass beside her, forget everything for a while, and simply be with the flowers, green grass and purring cat.
