… and the moon rises above another year. I wish you all good health and good hearts and laughter and peace. My deepest thanks for your warm, funny, fun, and abiding community here on Instagram. I consider you all friends or friends I’ve yet to make, and I count my blessings… This photo is from the last full moon of 2018, rising over Foxen Canyon Road, in our beloved valley.

Welcoming guests to a celebration this weekend for #talkinbig, His Grace’s just published memoir (if you hadn’t heard). The early winter light just so darn pretty in the late afternoon. Not sure I rolled out red carpet over the road and then they walk up a dirt path. I guess it got them going in the right direction anyway. And in the proper festive spirit I suppose! .
