The cold beauty of my sacred Mother Animas River…i took this shot and all others this morning in -15 degrees…


…the first and ongoing Teaching along any spiritual Path?…


…An Attitude of Gratitude. Here in Durango, the birthplace of WF,  cultivation of that Attitude comes easy.  At least for me.

Quan Yin greets the frigid wall of early morning light with Her hallmark equanimity as She greets all who stop by our humble Temple H(om)e.


Snow pillows perched like popped corn atop ancient river stones…


Narrow Gauge tracks lead toward high country adventure…these tracks from my childhood remind me that only through structure (discipline) can higher adventure (freedom) be gained.

Blessed be thy own Practice along our Path borne from wildness within…and without.

Happy New Year,

    Wow. The pictures of the river are startlingly beautiful. A great contrast in temperatures between the water and the air is producing wonderful effects. Along with the early morning light.
    Terrific eye oh WF shutterbugs.
