40 or 50 little fish surfaced for a morning breakfast of bugs. When we walked too close they would splash down all at once. The water looked like it was boiling in one spot. Amazing. If they are eating the nasty white flies I am all for it.

Sorry I missed yesterday. I spent all my free time and some not free time over at the ASU Ceramic research center working with Nora Morse and her daughter Eliza to create amazing clay pods to add to the ongoing Sustainability project. Opening on October 9, 2009.

We traveled to Montezuma's Castle this afternoon. At the end of our adventure this bright little guy came to check us out. When we got too close he flattened himself against the rocks trying to pretend to be roadkill. He quickly decided that didn't work so scampered away into the bushes. Totally cracked me up.

Time to get ready for the Race for the Cure,
Into a sea of legs ready to march on a Cure for Breast Cancer
A sea of people waiting to start.
Passing the starting line takes about 15-20 minutes.
Welcome to anyone that can move.
Even a car is decked out to bring awareness that early detection raises your chances for survival. I am an 8 year survivor. My dream is someday my grand daughter will ask, "Grandma, what's breast cancer?" Because it won't be around any more.
Join the Race if you can, send your prayers if you can't.

Patterns show up in some of the most unlikely places. When I think of the desert I visualize scruffy vegetation and chaotic cholla. Taking the time to look I noticed the patterns in these cacti. I don't think of organization and patterns in the desert but there they are just waiting to be noticed.

Whether I am enamored by the beauty of the moon when I am surrounded by Chihuly glass while at the Botanical Garden or staring at the patterns of light in the water going down the drain, I am the one that decides what is in the frame.

A fellow hiker was watching me take pictures and was curious as to what I was doing. After a minute he saw what I saw, a tiny little finch pecking away in the rocks. He then asked what type it was. I had no idea. I blithely said I would look it up on the internet. That is not as easy as I thought it would be. Anybody know what type of finch this is?

School is back in full force. Sorry I missed yesterday. In one of my classes I am studying Art history-American Indian Art and culture. Right now we are studying basket weaving. As I walked around the park lake I was astounded to see one of the basket patterns in the water. The article read that they didn't know where some of the patterns came from. The light on the water is similar to one of the patterns they were discussing. I took several pictures and this one looked the most like the basket.

Walking along in the park at over 80 degrees and finding a block of ice is surprising until you realize A. it is at a bottom of a hill, B. the ice is melting and C. you look for the 'path' down the grass where the block of ice had slid. Ice block sledding wrecks havoc on the grass but people enjoy riding the block of ice down the hill.

The world is a fascinating place. You look around at everything you see and then you really look and see one thing reminds you of another. I looked at the stop light everyday then one morning I looked at the sun through the pickup window and saw the similarities.
