I’ve been neglecting my blog, my art, my exercise too.  I just cannot fit it all in.  How do people who work 30- to 40 or more hours every single week get anything done’?

love IS everything it’s cracked up to be

July 13, 2012

I found this great quote from Erica Jong over on dailyplanetprincess‘ blog

check it out

Do you want me to tell you something really subversive?

Love is everything it’s cracked up to be.

That’s why people are so cynical about it. . . .

It really is worth fighting for,

being brave for,

risking everything for.

And the trouble is,

if you don’t risk anything,

you risk even more.

We have a ‘soterano’ / root cellar

May 6, 2012

There is a story behind these pictures I’m gonna post…..

Back in the summer of ’06 in Lama, New Mexico where we (Len, my honey and I) are building a geodesic dome home,  he had had a pit dug the year before.    Hence the word ‘ soterano’,  in Spanish it means root cellar.sotarano being dug

Now this summer of ’06 was hot and sometimes wet and we started to hear frog like sounds coming out of the open soterano.  There was a puddle of still water in this 10 x10 x10 foot hole in the dry high desert landscape of northeastern New Mexico.     And we were hearing frogs?         Hold on now,

but sure enough if we sat really still on the edge of this pit we could see little itty bitty movements in the mud.  So of course we went in.  We slipped and slid and Explored!!!!…..

You need to understand that this pit, this hole in the ground was just dug up for the first time in probably human history.

That this dirt hadn’t been exposed to sun and light and open air since who knows when.      And here were these amazing teeny, tiny little brown baby lookin’ frogs with HUGE round, green as grass eyes;  singing and mating, chasing, catching and eating flys.

WHERE did they come from?  There are no frogs that we’re  aware of  on this high mountain mesa in north eastern New Mexico.

We, Len and I, think that they emerged after being dug up and exposed to the elements that they needed to come alive.  So we believe

Anyway……. on with the story;

So here it is springtime of ’08 and we now have a house floor

into the hard-packed earth to create steps down into our root cellar so  I was spending a lot of time there and saw a few more interesting things……

These mountain lion prints showed up after a rainy cold snap this summer.  Nice huh?

We’ve looked them up and can’t seem to make much since out of them other that that they are mushroom flower looking plants:

Anybody have any idea or are they an ancient flower/mushroom?

Here it is May 6, 2012

We now have a solid lived in for 3 years geodesic dome over this soterano, and I’m missing all that beautiful heat of summer down in there. Just thought I would repost (and it’s raining, yeah, or sprinkling anyway)
