E-mail Print PDF
While returning home from Mariano Lake after visiting a friend and mentor, I was struck at the number of young colts I saw on my way back to Gallup.  Beautiful, strong, spirited and healthy were just a few of the thoughts that came to mind as I watched the young colts and horses along the way.  The other thought I had…I...

Welcome New Moon! On Aug. 5, you’ll notice a shifting down with a spontaneous jump forward. As we’re deep into the warmth of Leo’s Sun, bask in the fire sign’s strengths. Take pride in yourself.

So, it’s not all going according to your perfect plan. But, you’re making the necessary adjustments and making those necessary course corrections. This means you’re on the right path towards greatness. Now is the time to seek out challenges. Stop lolling about. The only fear is fear...

RE: “CLOSING THIS CHAPTER” Gallup Sun, July 14, 2014

July 21, 2017 was a day filled with both happiness and sadness as I attended the retirement event for Mary Ellen Pellington, the director of the Octavia Fellin Public Library in Gallup, New Mexico for the past eight years.  Her last day on the job will be August 01 but her legacy will last forever.
