It’s always summer in my heart.

It’s no matter that I have lived in Las Vegas, NV several years now with the dust blowing around me and the rocks beneath my feet; it will always be summer in my heart and soul.

Me below at the Starbucks in The Stratosphere. The photo was taken a few days ago on the 11th of November. 

I was born in Tucson, Arizona, also the desert Southwest, but for over 40 years of my life. Southern California was my home.

I was old enough to truly appreciate the blue expanse of the Pacific Ocean around me, the palm trees  calm of the beautiful flowers and all of the other  extraordinary scenery  of California.

It is where I went elementary school, Middle School, High School and college graduate School. Where I was married and 15 years later unfortunately divorced. But it’s also where I began discovering who I really was deep inside after being true to my inner voice, as I call my intuition.

I would love to lease a place there and yet keep my place in Vegas. That way, I could enjoy the uniqueness of both and do work with my old clients and discover new ones.

There are no perfect places to live, but ones that can never be forgotten, like the special people who have helped make me who I am.

I hope that what’s coming for me is like my paper whites blooming with twice the blooms they were supposed to have, my goals exceeding my expectations.

Do you live in a big city like I do? Share what it looks like at this Winter wonderland time of year in words. 

Do you live in the country away from the hustle and bustle of city lights, where it’s quiet enough to hear crickets chirp at night? 

Share what your holiday looks like and feels like seeing  through your unique eyes. 

If you make your words picturesque enough you won’t need photos and instead will allow the readers to use that great, underused thing called “their imaginations.”

Me at The Canonita, Mexico City Soul Food restaurant at The Venetian.

Surreal lookingsuspended in the air in the Bellagio Conservatory.This was the hardest to photograph and actually have it come in clear and it took quite a bit of photo editing to really make it look 3-D like it does.

Me at The Bellagio Conservatory last night with Leonardo Valencia behind the camera.

All the  polar bears you see are covered with flowers!

Another winning photo “Leo” Leonardo Valencia took while at The Bellagio last night. They decorate the several times a year and people come from all over the world to admire and take photos.
