SPA: Turquoise/Beltane

SPA:  Turquoise

It's that time in Alaska where any sight of turquoise is a good thing.  Turquoise in the sky, in the sea, in the flash of forget-me-nots and blue poppies soon to follow.  As far as color goes, it's a good omen, especially in spring.

Beltane Blessings to all.  Here's a bit of Loreena McKennitt with her Beltane Fire Dance.

4x4 Treasure

Raven is a notorious chaser of treasure.  From all things shiny, to all things junk, you never quite know when you'll see one take off with a find in its beak.  In Southeast Alaska where there are nearly as many ravens as there are trees, the big bird makes for an interesting watch.  This one flies the currents with a bony friend on his back and sequins in the sky to catch.

Dog Is Love.

Time to get my fingers inky...I was delighted by a local story that I've been following now for a few days. A ten-month old golden retriever/black lab mix was abandoned in a nearby village, Kake.  Pup was placed in the informal kennel, what amounted to a a few dog runs in a chain link fenced area.  He was given the weekend to find a new family.  That's when local writer and very cool friend of canines stepped in.  Kathy I. arranged to have pup flown to Sitka on Harris Air, set up an appointment for him to have shots updated, and even has a forever home arranged for him on the other coast.  She does good things for dogs.  Here's a picture of said pup taken by Kathy I. and posted to Facebook:
Look at that smile!  So what better opportunity to put to work my new Magenta stamp. It was released about a year ago.  Proceeds from its purchase were put towards canine rescue and assistance due to the tsunami in Japan.  So pup rescued by Kathy I., stamp used on card for Kathy, and charmed stamping time on a Monday night.  Win, win and win.
