Full Moon/Spring Equinox/Snow????

Posted on March 23, 2019 at 12:00 AM Comments comments (0)

I lost the post somehow I started yesterday, the first full day of Spring 2019.  It was to be the beginning of my writing for this blog and the book that keeps burning inside my head and heart, the book that others keep telling me I have to write!  What does it mean, this full moon thing that engulfs me so, that each month I am drawn to photograph, or simply sit by and watch as it streams slowly across the sky shedding its brilliance over rock and metal and wood and sentient life in...

GONE WALKABOUT...March 1, 2019

As I begin this journey to write more, clean up my website, and expand my horizons beyond what is comfortable, I will share the MINDBURSTS...the many thoughts, like clouds, that pass through me when I go WALKABOUT with the dogs.

Today's walkabout was to honor my sister's dog Abbey--Abbey's ashes were scattered in the backyard by the dog-bench Sunday, laid to rest among the trees and wonderfully swampy preserve bordering my sister's new house near the Inland Waterway south of Wilmington, NC.  The walk was to honor Abbey--and Gus, who 'passed along' March 2014--and ALL THE INCREDIBLE DOGS that have been a part of our lives over a time span of 50+ years.  Little did we know that this week we would face yet the...

Family is Everything!!

Just got back from Carolina Beach NC, seeing my sister Christy and my aunt Faye and being there for nephew Robbie's 30th Birthday party.  Bev kept the fire burning here at the farm-LITERALLY; fed the critters; and WALKED the dogs!  FAMILY IS EVERYTHING!  It's family who love and support you for who you are and vice versa...doesn't matter whether it's by blood or spirit that 'families'gather and share, it's that they feed your soul, your spirit, in this moment!  Ahhhhhh.......

Walkabout Thought this morning:  Thoughts steal us from the BEAUTY OF THE MOMENT!

Today is Freeke's 95th Birthday...for those who do not know me, Freeke has been like a mother and mentor for just shy of a century-yes, 50 years!!  I cannot make sense of that amount of time in my head.  What I do know is that I want to live with the same passionate sense of well being she portrays to this day...to do well by others, to create the art that fills me, and to share with those I love and encounter throughout my life all things given, all things received.

Ground Hog's Day 2016

It's time to "Make It Happen"!!  That's my this year's "Go To" mantra...make it happen!  Time to write that book, publish those photos, write that article, draw, paint, color, dye, and when that's done, go walkabout/rideabout!  It's all there, within each of us, waiting to erupt, waiting to emerge--beat the pavement, walk the walk.  There really is NO time like the PRESENT...the snow from Jonas is leaving and I watch the streambeds swell with the transformed snowflakes of ...

FEBRUARY 15TH: Coldest Day This Winter To Date / 'A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE'

Posted on February 15, 2015 at 7:25 PM Comments comments (0)

When I headed out (the only part of me exposed--my nose) this morning just before dawn to check on the sheep at the barn it was 3 degrees; The wind chill -25.  All was well, but the sheer cold cutting through the seams of my coat and Carhartt coveralls made me sense how little I enjoy the cold at 65 years of age compared to how I embraced it at 30 and at 45!  It has NOT been a bad winter--this week being the first to hold us hostage below the freezing point for more than a day. ...

Took a few lambs to market yesterday...always hard for me, especially this time of year.  It does pay for the feed needed during gestation and lambing, a 'give back' so to speak.  But I wrestle with knowing they are being slaughtered and I am not personally able to manifest a peaceful death, so I meditate and sing for them when they leave me.  It is the best I can do.  Coming home after getting chores done, going for a walk with ALL the dogs, I walked behind the barn to he...

Wrong or Right? Good or Bad?  There is a BIG difference no matter the source of the question we ask!
