This is from out last backyard practice.
We’ve rehearsing in my back yard, and now that it’s getting really cold, in the garage. With the doors open. And space heaters!
We have a gig! Yes, that’s right. While bars are closed, we are playing from a garage during the Luminaria Stroll.

April Fool’s Journey – the trip through the major arcana continues!
I’m continuing to paint! There are currently four pieces in the works. These are the latest in progress – the large one is close to done, the other two are at the beginning stages. I don’ have a shot of the fourth piece.
Many of the pieces from Sky Pixel have sold, and I am looking to have limited edition archival prints made as well.
Yoga in the Yard
Written by Jessica Barnes: Come practice community yoga with your neighbors right here in West Flagstaff! Let’s gather for an hour to engage with yoga, movement, healing and each other in a beautiful outdoor setting – the park! Many people in our neighborhood have a personal yoga practice (or are interested in starting one) and we are blessed to have many folks who have also trained as teachers. Let’s create a space and time for those interested to come together and create a community of practice and see what evolves! This week’s session will be led by the fabulous Holly Troy!
Let’s meet for yoga practice:

Quick Update (personal stuff, eek)
Since I last posted a “Happenings” post in August, I talked a bit about going through a rough time. I am feeling much better! Still making the map as I go, and it is turning out that besides the brutal year it has been, there is a physical reason for my fatigue and depression. Send any good juju you have to my thyroid! I have felt it slowing down over the last several years, and now it’s officially clinically hypothyroid. Next week will be the decision with my doc on how to treat it. (This is getting pricey, but I value my health over everything).
My Aunt Penny, who lives with and takes care of my mom, had a heart attack in September. She’s OK, but she can’t take care of my mom as easily. My sisters have been helping to take care of mom. I almost went out to help, but there is a mandatory 2-week quarantine in New York, and the last thing I wanted to do was travel and bring Covid to my 79 year-old mom and 75 year-old aunt. And, my sisters told me to stay put.
It turns out, one of my sisters, while helping take care of mom, got Covid. Mom, Aunt, and other sister all tested negative! Phew. My sister who caught Covid is doing better.
Paul is still pretty down, this year has been unrelenting for him. Completely losing his way of making a living and losing his buddy, Duke has been devastating. And I don’t seem to be very helpful. I’m doing my best to be caring and patient, while figuring out my own stuff (especially energy issues). And I haven’t been very good at making him laugh – not even with my silly dances. The Paul McCartney documentary we’ve been watching seems to be inspiring, which is hopeful. Good vibes, good juju and good cheer his way, please. Hopefully the darkness will pass soon.
Finally, it’s my birthday! A big one! I’m turning 50 on Christmas Eve. Normally, I don’t talk about my age, or my birthday for that matter, but screw it! Everything is changing and I’ve made it this far. (Believe me – it was a miracle I made it to 18, and back then I thought, “gosh, if I can make it to 21 I’ll most certainly make it to 35, and if I live to be 35, I’ll make it to 85.” At this point, if I remain healthy, and I expect to, I’ll live to be 100. That’s probably good enough. And if I don’t, I just want to live as healthily as possible).
I wanted to celebrate this birthday year by riding my bike across Ireland. The universe had other plans for me (and for all of us). I don’t think travel is going to be happening, at least overseas, for about two years. Just a feeling. So maybe in two years I expand my trip to include time in Barcelona, maybe some time on the Comino de Santiago. I suppose it’s time to start figuring out the dough for that trip. And yay! Something to look forward to!
Perhaps a bike trip/hike/some outdoor journey along the Pacific Coast will suffice this year. Time to dream up some possibilities!
Much love, happy holidays, and happy New Year to you!!!
