Fly like Angels!

Thank you Daily Post contributors for many years of great prompts and responses. I’m deeply disappointed this is stopping and grateful for many years of inspiration.

I’m reposting this beautiful girl who has captured my heart and how she reminds me daily how enlivening play is and how life is where we are rather than in the stream of seemingly endless thoughts.





Flying Raccoon-Angel Dog



It’s crazy how much I love this dog:

she’s silver strands if I am a crow

if a pirate, she’s my mountain of gold

by sea at night she’s the northern star

and my sun & moon & light near & far


(Joya picks up almost anything and turns it into a toy that she flips in the air, catches, chases, since everything is animate and joyful play in her world.)


Release and Embrace

P1060582 - Version 3

Re: the past year, past

decade, all the past, the

hurt, disappointment, confusion,

sadness, loss,

e.e. cummings said it best:

let it go – the
smashed word broken
open vow or
the oath cracked length
wise – let it go it
was sworn to

let them go – the
truthful liars and
the false fair friends
and the boths and
neithers – you must let them go they
were born
to go

let all go – the
big small middling
tall bigger really
the biggest and all
things – let all go

so comes love

P1060313 - Version 2

so begins the brilliance of this moment

with its vibrant shadows and color…

may each day bring peace, kindness, joy



Solstice spontaneity: The Sea Tree

Creation’s force uses whatever is around to pay tribute, express, memorialize. One man, playing volleyball by the time I walked by, gathered and sculpted driftwood toward the sun on this longest day of the year. As they arrived, friends added feathers, cones, trash, seaweed, a scarf she’d brought, until they’d collectively created “The Sea Tree.”

Too many beautiful naked people surrounded this piece so I chose to capture only the top half, but it was grounded by tall driftwood pressed close as if a single truck with seaweed dangling about four feet above the sand to the right of this central truck .
