April, May & June have rapidly unfolded and unraveled us all.

Did you see it? Did you remember it going by. Full moon in Scorpio, lunar and solar eclipses and flare ups on the sun? Fires and a little quake action.

There is a whole lot going on…

WOW !!! I need to reflect a moment on how much has happened in the last few weeks and months. A big chapter closes as desert wonderland goes to new desert lovers and leaves me the Tile House solo. A frenzy of cleaning and shifting energies, a gorgeous sky every day, a tour of wonderland…
