Something strange happened here – kinda cool!

It’s a crazy beautiful black and white morning – Colorado Springs hushed and slow to welcome the day.

Happy Halloween!


Oh, the chill we’ve had as of late! But how a pretty frosted landscape makes braving the icy winds worth it.

The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.

Joseph Campbell
