Valentine from the Southwest

Red Pepper Heart

Red Pepper Valentine @ 2010 Bo Mackison

Happy Valentine’s Day to all my Valentines.

Red Pepper Valentine especially in honor of Sherpa. You’ve added lots of spice to my life!

And big hug to my son, my best Valentine gift ever. Valentine’s Day, all those years ago? — I remember as if it were today!  Happy birthday, Jeff!

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.
