The most exquisite paradox... as soon as you give it all up, you can have it all. As long as you want power, you can't have it. The minute you don't want power, you'll have more than you ever dreamed possible. ― Ram Dass

For a moment of night we have a glimpse of ourselves and of our world islanded in a stream of stars—pilgrims of mortality, voyaging between horizons across the eternal seas of space and time. — Henry Beston

It's beautiful here in the desert, and my friend Tamara's photos really capture the magic. I've been lucky to go on a (sunrise--yes, me) shoot with her and I hope to go on a few more (although perhaps sunset next time)!
This past week I have been spending time with landscape photography with the Sonoran Desert as my subject. Mostly at sunset, but this morning I was out there for sunrise.  Typically landscape photo...

Story
Tagline
Professional artist. Writer of weird sci-fi.
Introduction
"I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning." 
J. B. Priestley 

Where do I fit into your circles? 
Here's a little more about me

 - I'm an artist. I work in digital and traditional media and am fond of lyrical abstraction. I come from a family of artists. We're all a little weird, but it's how we make a living.
 - I'm also a writer. I write science fiction, either the existential sort or the pulpy sort, or some combination of the two. I adore reading nearly every type of speculative fiction. The more fantastical and cerebral the better. I believe writing and reading are the best drugs on the market.
 - I live in the desert. It's damn hot here, but I love it.
 - I'm married to my inspiration and he's got the most wicked, wonderful smile.
 - I love cats. For many years, I worked as a professional groomer who specialized in grooming cats.
 - I'm a longtime Mac user and I drink enough coffee to be called an addict.
