Letting Go

Sometimes I feel like a stranger in my own life. Like, who is this person emerging…showing up in the desert, this small town, the sunrise and the sunset. I’m beginning to wonder if maybe there’s something to be learned here that can be integrated anywhere. Why wait? Why blame? Why not “be” with the swirling […]

Balancing the Coin

Last night, I went to dinner with a woman who moved to Marfa from Mexico when she was 12…she and her 9 brothers and sisters…along with her mom and dad. Her mom was a US citizen (Mexican descent) and her Dad was from Mexico. She raised her kids in and around Marfa. Her daughter joined […]

One Dude with Those Fries

An evening check in and some observations: 1. I heard a siren today. First I’ve heard since arriving here in Marfa, a week ago. 2. Went for a drive and ended up going through my first border patrol check station. The officer asked if I was a US citizen. I said yes and he signaled […]

The Roadrunner

I have a big kid that lives in my heart. She loves symbolism and magic! And so it’s no surprise THIS amazing bird shows up in my yard everyday. Yep everyday!!!! I saw her when I first arrived. She is a roadrunner. Her nest sits in some high brush off the side of my driveway, […]
