Summer's Here

You wouldn't know it from the windy and rainy conditions that have made themselves known the last six months. 

The sun is going to sleep and so is the Earth's hot temperatures with it. Will we see the hot, arid climate of the southwest return before the monsoon? I believe so. Maybe we will catch a hurricane or two from the Pacific Ocean just in time to see our monsoon season close early like in the past two cycles.

I rather have the temperate weather pattern. Not excessively hot, but not subfreezing either. I want to experience the Sonoran Desert the way it was meant to be lived: engaging. 

So I may not live the dream of beaches and cool breezes, but the desert has a charm all its own. What a great way to write about where you live. How do you feel about your weather?

Have a great and wonderful day!

Memory Lane

I have been updating my credentials on Sonoran Dawn Studios.

The books, courses, lectures, and other learning mechanisms I employed over the years were a lot lengthier than I had given myself credit for. 

In a word: wow! 

I am glad I availed myself to not only study but to travel. I have been to numerous historical locations, locations in general, as well as touched history. 

Different points of view is an important skill to have as a creator. I wish I could have done more before I became disabled but while I was healthy, at least I did not hide in my house. I lived. Moments of time, I experienced eras and cultures. I felt time.

So memory lane has really bolstered my passion for knowledge and experience. I hope that one day I can return to what I enjoyed: living out loud. 

For now, I will live to express. 

What have you done today to break out of your comfort zone? 

Have a great and wonderful day!
