Blowing the Clouds Away

I was climbing a small mountain the other day, I felt unsettled, and the world felt unsettled. When I feel this I wonder, ‘Is it me?’, or am I picking up ‘stuff’ from out there?  Do you ever wonder this?  Sometimes I don’t feel good about life, even without good reason, and I can’t blame [...]

Moving Forward- Path or Wander

My tendency in nature is to wander.  Paths are good for getting from one point to another, but wandering allows for exploration outside of a linear, defined line.  As we go through life, we sometimes need to follow a path, maybe a highway, to get where we want to get to.  Do I continue to [...]

Turning into Autumn

We are already seeing signs of the Autumn here in our canyon. The days are shortening, and the light quality has changed.  The air has become crisper, cooler, and smells have also slightly shifted from that of mid-summer.  And, of course the most obvious is the turning of the leaves.  The maples, cottonwoods, currants, grasses [...]

Go on a Passion Quest

Do you know what enlivens you?  What do you love doing?  I found this reminder well suited for what I needed to remember now.  Sometimes we forget, we get wrapped in those everyday expectations, commitments and habits.  Sometimes we lose touch with what is important to us tied up in all of life's stuff.  But, [...]
