not ripe yet

but these prickly pear flowers have closed
and are well on their way to becoming
plump and juicy fruits.

under the spell of fun

Flip Orley, known as a "comic hypnotist"
was recently at the Tempe Improv
(Rural and University Road)
Flip first became interested in 
hypnotism when he came across the 
book "how to pick up girls through
hypnotism" in the 6th grade. Seems 
like most things of importance can 
be traced back to getting a date.

feed your creative energy here

utrecht art supply store, located at rural and 
university drive, is one of my favorite places for 
paints, pens, pencils, paper and the like.

purple lake

the light rail bridge is beautiful at night. in fact, roads and 
bridges magazine named the tempe lake light rail bridge 
the 10th best bridge built in 2008. LED lights
illuminate the sides of the bridge and the water below;
 lighting up as the train passes over every 10 minutes or so.

Hidden Treasures

I love that Arizona is a place where desert tortoises
thrive. Rarely seen, I chose my own backyard tortoise 
for this month's theme, hidden treasures. check out
a sampling of AZ's treasures by visiting the other 
Arizona blogs:

big breakfast

I recently ate at Matt's Big Breakfast in Phoenix. 
Matt's BB is a tiny retro-style restaurant with 
 a big reputation. there's always a wait - mine was about 
an hour, but it was worth it - the food was delicious.
