Welcome to my World
Welcome to the domain different--to paraphrase from New Mexico's capital city of Santa Fe which bills itself "The City Different." Perhaps this space is not completely unique but my world shapes what I write as well as many other facets of my life. The four Ds figure prominently but there are many other things as well. Here you will learn what makes me tick, what thrills and inspires me, experiences that impact my life and many other antidotes, vignettes and journal notes that set the paradigm for Dierdre O'Dare and her alter ego Gwynn Morgan and the fiction and poetry they write. I sell nothing here--just share with friends and others who may wander in. There will be pictures, poems, observations, rants on occasion and sometimes even jokes. Welcome to our world!

Sneeze weeds redux
Once I got to looking though, I saw there were some white and red, magenta or dark pink ones as well. I wasn't able to identify them all yet. I 'll probably have to have a sample in hand and really compare closely to the information in the book in order to do so.
I do like to identify things because it makes them feel like friends instead of some exotic specimen or something insignificant seen in passing. For the same reason, I have learned the names of most of the late spring to mid fall constellations and their principle stars, and try to identify most of the birds and beasties I see, too.
Lastly, there were late day clouds as the trailing end of the storm that brought snow to the high country west and north of us, near the Colorado line, blew past us dry but made the day's end interesting. Although not quite as spectacular as the beam a friend of mine, Sue-Ellen Welfonder, featured on her blog Tartan Ink a few weeks ago, here are my rays of light seen last evening. The clouds almost form a "domino mask" with the blue peeking through above the rays! And as a reminder, if you click on any picture in my blogs, they will all come up in another window, larger in size, and you can scroll through them!
