If The Shoe Fits...

If these shoes could dance...oh, but they have! If these shoes could sing...seems they've done that too. But, don't be fooled-these shoes aren't meant for walking! They are meant to strut about on one of the greatest stages in the world-the Santa Fe Opera. Note, though, that they are not shiny and new in appearance, but intentionally aged and given a much worn look. That is the cool thing about the arts-especially the performing arts since they require every aspect of art in order to make it happen. If you live here in NM, make it a point to at least take a backstage tour-it will be well worth the $10 you'll spend!

Daddy's Pancake

Park benches can make for lovely and unexpected shadows-not to mention that it is a wonderful invitation to sit down and take a load off your feet!

I was making some pancakes last night (so that my boys would have them in the morning-knowing that I wouldn't have time to make them then). Funny, how every single time I make pancakes I flashback to my childhood days on Molokai-growing up in our house in Kalae. Sunday mornings. I have 4 brothers and a younger sister-she is 10 years younger than I. I don't know how all of us fit in one car to go to church every Sunday morning. I can't even remember our 'seating' arrangements! But, we'd head off to the 7:30 am mass in Kualapuu. After we got home, preparing breakfast would take place. We often had pancakes and my dad and my brothers would go off and deliver the newspapers while the food was being made. They'd be done and home by the time everything was ready. The last pancake I'd make would be the biggest one of them all-mostly because there wouldn't be enough batter to make two more, so I opted to make one big pancake to use up the remaining batter. That pancake was reserved for Daddy. It was Daddy's pancake-and he was the one who would eat it.

So many years later, to this day, I find myself still making that last pancake the largest and I find myself thinking in my head and in my heart how that pancake would be Daddy's pancake.

Hello Silence My Old Friend






"Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted
In my brain still remains
Within the sound of silence"

How many of us who are old enough to know the album, "Bridge Over Troubled Water" by Simon and Garfunkel and hasn't played this song, "Sounds of Silence" over and over again? I still love it, decades later. The whole album is just incredible.

I know that you might be wondering what that object is that I photographed and I am embarrassed to say that I honestly don't know. I was at the Botanical Park a few weeks ago and someone had a table out with cactus plants and this one had a function in a culture somewhere, but for the life of me, I cannot remember. It happened so fast and I was on my way out of the park. But, it is cool presented in this manner, isn't it? Let's just go with that!

Here's To The Red, White And Blue of Independence!





The American Flag has three colors and each represent a different meaning. Red in the American flag has the meaning of hardiness and valor. White means innocence and purity. Lastly Blue signifies vigilance, perseverance and justice.

Here's to the red, white and blue!! Have a safe 4th, everyone (who is celebrating it).
