Spending the day in hospital waiting rooms while a loved one has surgery. Not serious — a cranky knee with a few torn bits that needs some repair. Wish us luck!

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.

    Beautiful flowers in beautiful colors! Nothing like purple and yellow. Mother Nature knows what she is doing. May you loved one quickly mend from the surgery of the cranky knee.

  4. Wow! Love this flower!!! Good luck to hubby – hope he’s being a good patient!

  5. Purple and yellow are complimentary colors, so it’s awesome to see them on a flower for such a great photo.
