The Northern Summer Solstice occurred June 20-21. The blazing sun stood for the longest time over our small, unique blue earth and its vast solar corona spread its illuminating and life-giving heat over our world and upon all living things here, including humankind and all creatures and all seed that is planted and growing for the mutual sustenance of life.

The sun is the ultimate natural blessing power of our existence as we know it. It is legitimate to postulate that the sun is also a metaphysical and supernatural blessing power, part of an as yet ultimate mystery, unique and fortuitous, because the Summer Solstice ignites the deepest appreciation of its spiritual and religious aspects as well, in every tradition known to humankind.

For the first time, the boundary of the heliosphere has been mapped, giving scientists a better understanding of how solar and interstellar winds interact.

"Physics models have theorized this boundary for years," said Dan Reisenfeld, a scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory and lead author on the paper, which was published in the Astrophysical Journal. "But this is the first time we've actually been able to measure it and make a three-dimensional map of it."

One beautiful morning, Ole Johnny Mudd went to see his friend Socololito. He was a Native who, like many Indians, lived in an adobe house. The houses were built one above the next all the way to the height of five stories. Many families lived together for protection from invaders. They used to call this unity of houses "The Red Village" because at sunset, the door frames of the adobe houses seemed to turn very red. Socololito was sitting on the roof of his home enjoying the daily sun. When Ole Johnny Mudd got there, Socololito was already waiting for him.

The Guadalupe has appeared in my work for years. I don't know how many times she has made me paint her. Evolving from the sweet, protective Madre Morena I drew in Catechism to a force of nature erupting out of the earth with apocalyptic force, she wields retribution in one hand - and pours life-giving water from the other.

When was the  last time you really listened to the sounds of nature? The wind in the trees, the birds chirping, the sound of water flowing? Or welcomed a pollinating bee? Or noticed the change of the arc of the sun across the sky?

The Phoenix is a fantastical castle complete with turrets and towers, rising above the sage-covered desert landscape. Full of whimsy, warmth, color and texture, this earthship shows that sustainability can co-exist with luxury and comfort.

For those with a metaphysical bent, the onset of the coronavirus with its unprecedented global disruptions is hardly a surprise. It was only a matter of time before the unconscious, destructive and self-destructive behavior of the human race caught up with it.
