May's wrapping up, all too soon, and without the amount of travel, seeing places, and checking in with people I'd love to see.
Another new normal for me, unfortunately.
At least there's lots of color around, thanks to what water we have and my lovely kids...

Again- at the Cabin!

Fires everywhere these days, even though official fire season is a ways away.
Heat and lack of water.
It's the new, um, normal.

Finally burned the branches and assorted offal in the yard.
Good times.

He's Always Outside!

He's not only a highly dynamic young man who sees the world around him in a unique and irresistibly exciting manner, but he has some good brothers and sisters who keep him well-stocked in hardware and ideas to stay engaged with the gargantuan amounts of resources and fun around him.

Snowbird Conference 2018

I decided rather tardily that I needed to go to this years 'Promising Youth' conference up at Snowbird, so props and thanks goes to the eminent artist and gentleman Abe Kimball for letting me use his room as a base of operations and much more.
One of the best parts of this year's time spent was talking with him and watching him work through a piece of art in progress.

Mimi at 98

Birthdays aren't that big a deal, really. There are tens, even hundreds of millions of people every day who have one, for heaven's sake.
But this one was more special by orders of magnitude, as far as I'm concerned.
My Mimi turned 98 years old, and that's pretty amazing.

Gotta Love May

Not much to say but it's a great time to be alive, no matter the problems or what lies on the horizon. Summer may be good or it might be a long slog of heat and not enough irrigation water, but May is a time of magic.

Full Sanpete Spring

The possibilities are endless, here in the month of shootingstars and lilacs.
(That's not a lilac. It's a scented geranium. Cool, also)
