Who wants to make a cute videoetry of these items to post on my site? Hmmm? That would be fun!

A "Crystal Road" Less Traveled!

Hi All!

Today's videoetric offering (how's that for a new word?) is from a poem I submitted to The Lyricist - a statewide poetry magazine produced by Campbell University.  I gave them three poems and they are publishing two.  This one didn't make the cut, but I have a videoetry that's been waiting to be published.

I have videoetries ready for the other two when the Lyricist folks give me the OK to put them out there.

The poem was inspired by a drive home in pristine snow.  (No one else was crazy enough to be out in it!)  The photographs are from around my house when snows and ice have come for a visit. 

So here goes "Crystal Road"!

Happy Easter With Beautiful Desert Sunsets

Good Friday to you!

Since we have now come into the spring season and Easter is almost here, I wanted to post this videoetry with gorgeous desert sunset shots.  Again, Arizona amazed me with its beauty.  I would never have imagined such amazing color in a desert setting.  Very moving!

These shots were taken near Cottonwood, AZ and on Lake Powell.  I was dining with friends who live out there (lucky folks!) at the Wahweap Marina when that brilliant pink one turned even the lake pink!  Whoa!

The poem is about self reflection which I was able to do while putting around for hours by myself with the wind in my hair and the feast in my eyes.  OK, so I romanticized it a bit.  I was in a Corolla with the AC on - not a convertible! - but you get the picture. 

Have a blessed Easter and enjoy "Painted Desert".

Ciao for now!

"You're So Vein"

Hi Again,

No, it's not that I can't spell, but it is a play on words. 

This poem came to me last October as I was flying back from Denver.  Looking from the plane to the river valleys below was interesting.  They look like capillaries, but of course, rivers and their tributaries work in reverse.  Instead of bringing fluids to the bitter end, that's where the water collection starts.

I didn't have a decent camera with me to take photos of the river valleys in October, but as I was flying to Phoenix last week, I shot these. 

Thus completes the videoetry!  Have photos, music, and a poem and we're dealing!  Remember, if you have any material to share, I would love to see it.

Hi There!

Have you missed me again?  Sorry to take so long to get another videoetry in the works.  It's been a busy month so far. 

Have had a smashing good time in Arizona and am sad to leave tomorrow.  Back to humidity and Southern skies.  Hey, that isn't all bad!!

Sedona has jumped Yosemite for my favorite place on earth (though, to be quite honest, it's a close race...).  I have created a videoetry to show you just a few shots from that beautiful place.  The color and the enormity of the rock formations there are awe inspiring. 

Hope you enjoy "Sedona"...

Ciao for now!
