Death and Life

Yesterday, I received some very sad news about a friend's brother.

He died after what seemed to me to be a very troubled adult life.  He does leave a legacy of his family, who are a very wonderful group of people. 

This morning, we had another of our beautiful sunrises, and, as I took a morning walk,  I couldn't help but think of how his soul has been set free and his spirit released from the demons that plagued him here on earth.  I can't help but feel there is a promise of a more magnificent and glorious life for us (and him) beyond what we know here.

RIP Mike

Paintings of a New Mexico Sunrise

These images are from a sunrise about a week ago.  I made them look like oil paintings just to give them a bit of texture. 

I just love how a few minutes can create such different colors and patterns in the sky.
