Meditation Maze

April 3rd, 2015 · 1 Comment

This seemingly useless display of rocks was actually placed there on purpose.  Known as a sacred labyrinth or a walking meditation maze, the purpose is to walk in, around, and out to either calm you down or allow you time for clarity on a troubling problem/issue.

Kick the Bucket

March 24th, 2015 · 1 Comment

How about we crop the photo to eliminate the bucket and the rickety pergola?  The focus should be on the pool and house.  [By the way, those tall dead sticks are the ribs of a dead saguaro cactus.  It is worth about $500+]
