My sister-in-law passed away so we made a beautiful urn in her memory. I etched a poem on it that I would like to share.

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle Autumn rain.

When you wake in morning hush.
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I did not die.

Pat's is in the earthy colors. I also have two more images of urns that we have made so if you have any need for an urn let us know. Life continues. Enjoy yours!

Solar Eclipse

The sky was getting darker and rather suddenly these mystical crescent shadows appeared! I photographed them dancing on the barn, the glass and even the horse, Fancy! Northern California won't see this again for 54 years. I might miss it.....

Odyssey of the Mind Fundraiser

"So the anniversary gift looks different as the sun moves - amazing, but it's official name is The Odyssey of the Moon in honor of Scott and the night of the Super moon!" Supporter and proud Grandmother.

We want to thank everyone for their support of the Odyssey of the Mind Fundraiser. The three teams are off to the World Finals May 21! It was a huge success. I couldn't be there since I was with family in Ohio. My sister-in-law, Pat, passed away and I shared very special, memorable and incredible time with my family. Leslie Lohse pulled it off though! Thank you Leslie!
