Spring 2015

In winter months

The mountains take rest

From the busier times of year

Weather is crisp

Granite rocks occasionally covered in snow

Never quite enough moisture these years

And winter endures

Anyway

Along comes Spring

Life springs into motion

Springs open and flow

Plants breathe and soak in sunlight

And life resumes again

The mountain is alive with life

The Creative Healing Arts Center is raring to move things along

2015 is going to be a great year

Let’s Go!

The Programs page and the Gallery page have been receiving the most attention from me lately, along with the ranch itself! I hope you have watched the video that Charlie Griak shot, edited and produced about the CHAC and the ranch on the Home page. I’ve seen it many times and I am continually amazed at how much beauty Charlie was able to capture. The ranch and nonprofit are long term projects for me. I am fairly certain they will be with me for the rest of my life and I hope to do a lot of good through them. So, stay tuned for more updates and thank you for your interest.

Sincerely, David

The springs are flowing!

I’ve been keeping my fingers crossed for a few big snows in the mountains of New Mexico this winter, but the moisture has been meager so far. Nevertheless there is water flowing from the springs and I will keep my fingers crossed for some later winter rain and snow! These pictures were from a little dusting of snow in early March.

Exciting News

I received some exciting news earlier this week that a proposal I had submitted to the Partners Program of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service had been accepted. This means there will more programs moving forward on the ranch this Spring. These programs will be centered around creating more habitat for wildlife and will coincide with the programs I have already started resulting in more work on the springs, ponds, sage removal and grass establishment. As well there is a rare plant (Small-headed goldenweed) that has been identified growing in the local area and we are hoping to find it on the ranch, and protect and propagate it there. All in all this is very affirming to me because I feel myself being supported in multiple ways getting the vision of the Creative Healing Arts Center more alive and into action.

 
I also wanted to thank Monique DiGiorgio for helping me in put together the proposal. She has proved to be a wealth of knowledge and information and is one of the reasons I am feeling more supported these days. Monique will be adding her voice to the blog as we do a better job keeping you guys informed of activities going on with the ranch and the Creative Healing Arts Center. Welcome Monique!
