pagosa springs

We'll the blizzard didn't spoil my plans. Thankfully if fizzled and I didn't get trapped at home.

One of my Christmas presents was a trip to a hot springs but it couldn't be scheduled until this weekend. Pagosa Springs, a beautiful small town located at the base of the famous Wolf Creek Pass in Colorado is home to the largest collection of mineral pools in the world. There is a rich history to the springs and the famous resort, but the new Springs Resort Hotel is a great addition to that history. There's nothing like a soak in the healing waters to soothe the body and mind. However, notice whose half-naked body you do NOT see in the photo! Yes, I prefer to soak at night.

There are a total of 23 pools in various degrees of warmth. This photo shows how the minerals have built up over the years creating beautiful and colorful mineral flows.

Now I'm feeling a bit refreshed and looking forward to a week of creativity. What cool getaway do you recommend?

spring snow

I have a song on my Sacred Age CD called Midwinter Dreams. It is a tone poem representing a beautiful snowy, moonlit night where a peacefulness floats over the valley. 

Now it is Spring and the snows are falling big time. Yesterday was so sunny and 'almost' warm that I wore shorts, but another blizzard came through last night and this is what my today will look like. Maybe I'll write a new piece, Spring Dreams.

Today has been scheduled as a play day - my first in months. I'll keep you posted. What do you think I should do?

Old Blog Image

Welcome to the new face of RickyTims.com. I hope you will enjoy the new look and new features - such as this - my personal blog. While the LOOK is new, it will take some time to spiffy up all the content - especially the quilt galleries - so be patient while we do that. 

New on the site is a video link as well as a completely revised Online Store. It's sort of like Spring cleaning -only better! Above is a snapshot of the old site for reference. What do you think?

I've just returned from teaching at the International Quilt Festival in Dubai. There's a few stories to tell, but first - here's me on a camel.
