I think of us
walking down a trail
You in your
light summer dress,
through your hair.
I in my element
feeling barefoot earth,
green all around
making me glow.
Sun’s rays behind us
We turn to each other
Look deeply into eyes
Our tender lips meet
and we melt together.
Snake River in Oregon. A deer crossed here moments before. My campsite was right on the river just around the bend for an incredible camping experience with incredible views. I’d take a swim in the afternoons to cool off, very cold but invigorating.
I left one of the most beautiful, surreal, and serene campsites I’ve ever been in — it was very private up a mountain, had several brooks and a creek meandering through the middle of it and had a plethora of life — butterflies, birds (hummingbirds too!), chipmunks, deer, etc. It was a perfect respite from… Continue reading
More magic Campobello Island in New Brunswick, Canada (I originally placed it in Nova Scotia, my mistake). You can camp on the island and walk over to the coastal side to these kind of views. It’s a very magical place.

I wasn’t at full strength and I was nervous, especially untying and unloading the kayak which requires quite a bit of yanking and lifting and grunting. The thing about dealing with Mr. Lyme… Continue reading
View from this evening’s meditation on Hawthorne trail near Gainesville, Florida
Today will mark thirty three consecutive days of writing and posting photographs to my blog. Just over a month ago I wrote of an audicious challenge to post every day for a year. The challenge was to get into a regular habit of creative expression to help find my voice. Some days I have struggled… Continue reading
This summer I’ve been swimming daily in the local community pool as part of my healing process from Lyme disease (my acupuncture physician suggested it and I’m amazed at how much better I feel floating in cool water). I made friends with several folks there, including a young lifeguard who was on summer leave from… Continue reading
I had a vivid dream of the future where I was on a spaceship hovering above our planet. We’ve all heard stories about time machines and such where we’d step into them and transport to a different time? These ships were outside the bounds of time and space; they transcended matter, making our people’s stories… Continue reading
