Escaping

In these 'worst of times' for modern history, we all have our break out moments.  We need to escape, to run free, wild and feel the wind in our face, the world fading behind with no particular place to go.  And when I say all, I mean all.  This guy was all in for a round trip, 34 mile, 70 mph interstate run with us to pick up groceries-just to escape for a bit.  Gotta love em.  I sure do!


Wow! That’s a lot of wind! 


Buckle up buddy. It’s going to be a long ride. 


‘Earl’ Knievel, AKA Anole Fonda






You would think he’d be ready to disembark once we reached our destination. But noooooo...



That was really great, but think I'll ride up here for the trip home.


Ummm...driver...what's the hold up here? Have to get back to the fam, you know?





And speaking of Social Distancing.....
this couple seemed to be practicing it well although the 'nester' was having some negative feedback from the hungry baby.  



Okay, I think 50 yards is far enough, dear....dear...


But it's so much quieter over here, and I have all this preening to do...


Hey!  Junior's hungry!!!



Gotta love Chuck too!

    1. I thought at first he planned to be our hood ornament but he found a safe cubby under the hood to make the trip home. What a fun trip that was. 😊

  3. I think your passenger was having fun. More like a dog, enjoying the wind.

    Or he was saying, "Oh sh*t!" the entire time. :-p

    1. If he is anything like his drivers it was a combination of both! 🤭😂

  4. That’s hysterical. I love it. Looks like he was enjoying the ride. Born to be wild, indeed. Great photos. You must have been going crazy in the car.

    1. I was very anxious and excited to say the least. We were rooting for him!

  5. Oh man, that's wild! I would have been worried it would have fallen off the car during the drive. Looks like it moved to a more sheltered spot or one with a better place to hold on for the return trip.

    1. That’s exactly what he did Deborah! He even got to see a deer on the way home but we were driving so I couldn’t get a photo. Darn. 😉

Silent Watching....

The elders watched from the precipice of destruction, stoic, unmoved in their constant vigil, feeling mildly perturbed by it all.

The ancient one shivered against the untimely chill that had crept insidiously over the season, forcing his tribe to take to the skies all too soon, seeking warmth- sustenance.

The Great Hunter finished the remains of its meal wondering when the last kill would be as the Keepers pushed further in, stripping away the vestiges of their life’s blood.

They bowed their heads in reverent shame for such disregard of their Mother’s world, their chirping drowned by the clamor of progress, the cacophony maddening.

She made them stewards of her Creation, they hold her Essence in their hands, delicate, brilliant, mighty, precious! How could they betray her trust for gold dust?

Can they not see the universe in a grain of sand, feel her breath in the rush of the wind, see her artistry painted across the  canvas of a blue sky in the  rainbow after a storm?

Her children r…

Memories and Opportunities

The past year was a whirlwind of change for me. I suppose some, more stationary,  people might say my life has been like a whirlwind. We have moved more than a dozen times in 30 years and to different cities, states and even out of country! Before my sons were grown, these moves affected their lives as well. We have become known as “the gypsies”. 
I am a water sign, a Cancer, which influences me to be a nester by nature with an adventurous spirit. It has been tested many times. I have laughed, cried, screamed at the walls and picked myself up by the proverbial bootstraps to carry on. When I was younger I bemoaned the people I left behind and envied those friends who stayed in the same house, the same town, the same city and state so that they were one with their surroundings, family and friends. I longed to hang onto what I had, like a photo in album that you keep forever. Yet we all know that nothing in this tangible world lasts forever. So I keep the images in my heart and memory a…

Changes

Changing, rearranging, adapting, growing...metamorphosis. Sometimes it seems perfectly painless and beautiful, like watching an ugly caterpillar (I think they’re all pretty) spin a cocoon and lie dormant until such time as it emerges-transformed-into a glorious spotted butterfly.



Then there are those changes thrust upon us, life altering events that shatter our ideas about what is normal and perfect, right and wrong, beautiful and ugly. Injury, illness, loss and suffering can leave scars that may be nearly imperceptible to those around us but that loom in our own view as insurmountably ugly.
I feel most things come into my life for a reason and  try my best to understand these events, images and occurrences with an open mind. I feel the same uncertainty, sorrow and frustration as anyone else; but at some point, knowing that the universe is an intricate tapestry of Existence that is interdependent upon every thread that was woven into it from the beginning, I seek reason within the ma…
