Thanks to Rebecca


My husband and I are lucky enough to live in Prescott and to be good friends with the beautiful Rebecca and her husband.  Last night, after the Oaxaca Street Childrens’ Benefit Auction closed, we were invited over to their awesome home for a scrumptious dinner of salmon - that was marinated and deliciously grilled on cedar planks…the hands down best any of us have EVER had - with artichokes, baked potatoes, asparagus, nopal salad, and exquisite homemade dipping sauces.  Sweet burgundy wine flowed freely, with chasers of Rebecca’s specially brewed ruby red jimaica…to keep us all honest! 

 The auction itself took months of work to organize and execute – and for that, Rebecca surely deserves sainthood!  I was able to see her beguiling shrine firsthand and couldn’t get over the magnitude of its beauty and soulfulness…it’s truly a magical piece.  The auction turned out to be a huge success, thank to all her tireless work, plus that of the many artists who accompanied her on this phenomenal journey.

A heartfelt thanks to you, Rebecca…

for all that you do

all that you share

and all that you are.

  7. Dawn…you have certainly captured the beautiful spirit of our friend Rebecca. Sometimes it seems surreal. The magic we shared together in San Miguel.The continuing journey of gratitude, love, art, haikus, support and community here. I am missing all my Brooks Girls and just wanna sip some tequila and dance with you all.
