I was trying to add a picture of Bunny to the previous post but for some reason the picture disappeared! I walked across the street to the lodge where I had to perch on the stair landing and I guess cross my fingers and pat my head! The desk clerk finally went upstairs and turned the router off and on. Voila! Bunny’s picture reappeared! So here she is. She sent this photo as she was leaving to make a presentation to the elementary school.
For all the food freaks, Peggy invited us to brunch with some of her friends. There was ham, hash brown casserole, asparagus, the jello cottage salad, and fresh grapefruit that Peggy brought from California. We needed power food for the day ahead.
Peggy told us about some lesser know canyons so off we went. Dry river bed and lots of rocks!
Next stop after we carried 30 pounds of rocks out, was Red Canyon and Bryce Canyon. The beauty there needs no words. Wonder how long it took God to create this masterpiece?
This spot was called Wall Street. When you got to the bottom and looked up you knew why. Lynn walked over to Sunrise Point and meditated. We both just sat and watched as the light and shadows changed. We tried to figure out what the rock formations reminded us of. And we just sat in silence and listened to the wind.
Today was so beautiful. I am in awe of the land in southern Utah. The scenery changes so fast. The towns are few a far between, the roads wind through high mountains, low flat sage covered fields, and even pink, fine grained sand. If you ever doubted there was a Creator, just come to Utah.
It was a long long day and we just arrived back at the Red Brick Inn. I just wanted to post one photo tonight and leave you with an image of this beautiful country that we live in. Details tomorrow friends.

Zentoni Number Seven
It’s said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Again, focus. Look at this drawing and you will see the world moving around us. People are talking, horns are blowing, so many sparks of energy going this way and that. Do we stop to look into someone’s eyes when they talk to us? Do we ever stop to look into our own eyes? I don’t know where I first heard or read of this exercise, but looking into the mirror and gazing into your own eyes is quite an experience! It is the first step to loving yourself. And I don’t mean in a narcissistic way. We spend all our time trying to fixing things, making sure no one gets their feelings hurt. We go out of our way to care for someone else. That’s not a bad thing, but there has to be some balance. So today, look in the mirror, and not just at the lines on your face or the imperfect nose, but at your eyes. Look INTO your soul. Spend one minute, sixty seconds and go deep inside of you. Tell YOU how much you love YOU. Feel the shift inside your heart as you connect with your soul. Just think how great you will feel if you do this every day!
HAVE A BEAUTIFUL AND JOYFUL DAY
Zentoni five changed color again! I used the brown fine point Sharpie on this one. Notice this piece has a border. I started with that thought in mind. Confine the piece. Put all the squiggles and lines INSIDE the rectangle. Keep it contained. Is that what we tend to do to ourselves sometimes? We confine ourselves, limit ourselves to our so called comfort zone. We suddenly find that thoughts inside our bubble become crowded and chaotic. It’s hard to make any sense out of it. Today, try expanding beyond those limited thoughts and beliefs. Get out of your box! See what magic there is beyond those borders.
Miriam Webster defines the circle as a closed plane curve every point of which is equidistant from a fixed point within the curve. In sacred geometry the circle represents the spiritual realms.
Circles commonly represent unity, wholeness, and infinity. Without beginning or end, without sides or corners, the circle is also associated with the number one. Circles are often seen as protective symbols. Standing within a circle shields a person from supernatural dangers or influences outside of the circle. Conversely, a circle can also be containing, keeping that which is inside from been released. http://altreligion.about.com/od/symbols/ig/Geometric-Shapes/Circles.htm
Zentoni Number Four is about connection. It’s about the collective consciousness of this universe. The circles represent all of humanity and all beings from all worlds and how we are interlocked with one another. If we realize that every person, every living cell is connected to us, it might just change how we choose to treat others. If we throw a pebble into the pond, it causes a ripple, sending out a reaction to the entire body of water that is connected to that one little spot where your pebble made its splash. If you treat your fellow beings with love, it will travel out from you to the next being and so on for ever. Each day, be more conscious of your words and your actions. Remember that what you say and do goes out into the pond of the universe, and as circles do, will eventually find its way back to you.
