Priming the pump of creativity...

Desert dreaming....




This is the first spring in close to twenty years that I haven't been in the Arizona desert when the cactus bloom. As if the photographs posted over on Midori's blog weren't making me miss Tucson enough, I had to go and stumble across the video above: "Two Silver Trees" by Calexico, shot in the bar at the Hotel Congress (one of my favorite places, just down the street from my old art studio) and other Tucson locations.

Spring is lovely in Devon too, with wildflowers in the hedgerows and bluebells in the woods...but today I'm missing the desert heat, the chili rellenos at El Charro, the bounce of a pick-up over rutted dirt roads, and coyote howls by moonlight....

We miss you too!

Oh, that is beautiful. For some reason, I especially like the quick glimpse of the Madonna holding the two flat stones.
