DeGrazia Music Room, Gallery In The Sun   Leave a comment

“I want to be notorious rather than famous. Fame has too much responsibility. People forget you are human.”
– Ettore “Ted” DeGrazia

Ted DeGrazia earned two undergraduate degrees — one in music education, one in fine art and a master’s of fine arts. Known as Arizona’s most prolific artist, it is understandable that most people may not be aware of his shared dual passions for art and music.  Both helped him pay his way through college, painting during the day and leading his big band at night at Tucson’s Fox Theater.

His love of music was passed on to his son, Domingo DeGrazia, who today has his own band, the Domingo DeGarzia Spanish Guitar Band. We first saw Domingo and his band perform at the annual festival, La Fiesta de Guadalupe at the Gallery of the Sun.

Over the years, I have called groups of saguaros everything from a group, grove, and family.
Recently I was told that the correct term is “legion.” So, here you have it.

A Morning Hike In The Park   Leave a comment

Morning In The Park-72A Morning Hike In Saguaro National Park Hike-East (01/03/20)– Image by kenne

On the trail a morning haze

Slowly disappears as the sun

Lifts over the mountains

Across rocks and cactus

Leaving behind still air

Warmed as the sun

Moves desert shadows

Plants shinning with dew

A picture I try to capture

Lost in the passing moment

Hiking the desert trails

Looking down the miles

Collecting memories

To be lost with time

But not in mind.

The early morning sunlight created a golden glow in the canyon.

See you on the trail

Dancing creosols stir the air

Lost in the beauty.
