Mural Unveiling at Valley of the Moon

There will be an official mural unveiling for my Snow White and fairy/butterfly wing murals at Valley of the Moon on Saturday, October 1st, at 6 p.m. There were many people and forces involved in making this mural happen, Home Depot with it's lovely donated paint and people, friends and neighbors in the Tucson community, and the magic of Valley of the Moon. 

You can still help by donating $ here, for solar lights that will light up the murals at night!

The Potato

I wrote this poem when I was a young teenager.  I pretended it was a plea to vegetarians.  But really it was just fun to personify a potato.

Like a small infant cradled in the ground,
In dark cool soil the potato is found!
Sleeping so peaceful in a land far away,
Nestled at the bottom of a hot summer's day.
A man's hands dig and push soft dirt aside,
He hungrily says, "How would you like to be fried!?"
Potato is scrubbed to his bare naked skin,
Then peeled, shaved and chopped so thin.
Poor potato is fried in a burning hot pan,
Then chewed and swallowed, into the man.
