- Reconnecting with children I used to teach and their families and knowing how proud they are that I reached this goal.
- Being on panels and in groups which connected me with authors of distinguished status.
- Being part of Apollopalooza in July as the world celebrated the 50th anniversary of landing on the moon.
- Seeing my book on the shelf at a bookstore or library.
- Hearing feedback from children and parents that they love the book.
- As of today Aliana has 62 reviews on Amazon for which I am sincerely grateful.

What’s your definition of a perfect day?
Running and romping with a friend, punctuated by a cool beverage and even a little dip in the water? Maybe a snack? These boxes were all checked yesterday when Charlie and his sweet friend Meadow got together.
Mesmerized by the moonrise
not able to wait til it rises fully
to capture its beauty.
An evening at Red Rocks Amphitheater is a dream for many performers and concert goers. I’ve been fortunate to see a variety of performers there since I’ve lived in Colorado.
Sunday night, with Joe Bonamassa on the stage, we were treated to a second show in the sky. The waxing gibbous moon rested between Saturn (not pictured) to the left and Jupiter to the right. The first image was taken during the show from a lower row and the second was taken afterwards from the top level behind the seats. The point of reference provided by the Amphitheater is the same and gives great perspective.
Summer rains are common and fleeting in the mountains. Likewise, summer rainbows make brief but frequent appearances.
