March 27, 2009 – I was wandering around west of Fort Worth, TX looking for fields of bluebonnets that grew as far as the eye could see, not just the familiar patches growing along the highways. Unfortunately I would not find such a place on this balmy day but there was plenty of cow pasture in all directions where new grass and tree growth was revealing signs of spring.
A trough of low pressure on this day brought rain to the area and helped to create this serene space. The view of Silver Peak, Catalina Island from Mulholland Drive on the mainland reveals a calm, quiet and peaceful Pacific Ocean in between.
April 7 2010 – The bluebonnets are the most widespread I’ve seen in the Texas Hill Country in the last four years and they are growing everywhere in Marble Falls, TX. The colorful flowers meander beyond the trees to the left on this small corner of a huge homestead off Hwy 281 just north of the Colorado River.

There’s a children’s picture book series out on the horizon called the “The Cloud Seekers”, written by Robert L. Calixto. It’s still in the early stages due out next year but the concept is about a group of friends who explore the possibilities in what takes shape in the clouds. A simple concept, reminiscent of a time I remember and certainly fun to share with little ones.
