DSC_0006  First sunset of 2015

There was no fog over the Bay…for once…and I was able to watch the sunset on the first day of the year. This is taken in the Marin Headlands, one of my favorite areas in the San Francisco Bay Area, I wish I could bottle the smell there and bring it home with me.

I’m not one for marking the significance of a new year, but 2014 had some pretty rough spots for me that I’m happy to say goodbye to….2015 just seems brighter. Here’s to 2015!!



As a Christian, my thoughts have been consumed with the question of how Christians, Muslims and Jews can in some way draw upon what connects us and not what divides us.

I know this is happening in some parts of the world and I long for it to be the norm and not an anomaly.

How can peace become what we are accustomed to among the “big three” and not animosity?



“But perhaps the most important lesson I learned is that there are no walls between humans and the elephants except those that we put up ourselves, and that until we allow not only elephants, but all living creatures their place in the sun, we can never be whole ourselves.”

-Lawrence Anthony, The Elephant Whisperer
