It boggles the mind that a creature could have trod so long ago on this very spot!  Something with 3 toes!  The American southwest is full of delightful surprises like this.  It makes me feel small and insignificant in the vast scheme of time.  But Christmas reminds me that I am a child of the King of kings.  I was important enough for God Himself to step down from His throne to become a human baby; to come to all of us to save us all from our self-made miserable little lives.   Merry Christmas and thank you, thank you to my heavenly Father for the best gift of all, Jesus, Emmanuel, God-with-us!

Traveling with a sister
What joy to slip
Between the slot canyon walls!
Pictures snapping all around
The colors, the lines, the space
So sinuous.
We are amazed.

Antelope Canyon

Swift as an antelope
I’d want to be
When the mighty waters
Rush these walls.

How can such utter
Force
Leave breath-catching
Beauty?

Lines of light
Reflect the sun
In surprising ways;
Colors the eyes can’t even see.

Quiet canyon now;
Stop and listen
As the mind searches for sound.
Still silence, moving walls.
