And by the way, I know old SUVs are not fuel efficient. But it is recycled. ;D

I've never written about a book before and its hard to make something you love so much not sound cheesy or contrived. You want others to experience it too, to take in the amazing ebb and flow of the novel that moves you to multi-year reflection. But when I read what I just wrote above, I realize my interpretation somehow turned Kingsolver's masterpiece into cheap romance novel dust jacket! Hence, the reason why my day job is not being a writer and I will keep my musings on this topic short.

Up close and personal...
In admiration of the rejuvenated Pedernales River...
Some other flowering beauties...
Field of Sunflowers
And last but not least, weathered wood. Half my jewelry is reflective of twigs and branches, of all things wood. I wish I could do field work every day!
p.s. If you can't tell, I finally figured out how to make my pictures HUGE! From now on, better fabulous photos! Speaking of, these pix were taken from an iPhone. Can you believe it?

So what can you do? I guess the only thing that can be done. Take it in and enjoy every fleeting moment.

That spread his lustrous coil;
Still, as the spiral grew,
He left the past year's dwelling for the new,
Stole with soft step its shining archway through,
Built up its idle door,
Stretched in his last-found home, and knew the old no more.
Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul,
As the swift seasons roll!
Leave thy low-vaulted past!
Let each new temple, nobler than the last,
Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast,
Till thou at length art free,
Leaving thine outgrown shell by life's unresting sea!
