As the earth moves to the degree that aligns with my first breath, I am whole, having learned to tend to myself as if for the world. I journey to a reminder of my origins. Crumbling orange bluffs, salty air, and windswept cypress trees. To the mother who knows my deepest truths and cradles them… Read More Aligned with My First Breath
I carry him on my back uphill. A broken pelvis, healed without intervention, disabled his body long before he was mine. Cool green manzanita leaves and prickly pine needles shake off their snow like birds in a bath. Beside them, I march; enjoying each boulder, each seed-bearing cone, each sage brush adorning snow. I slouch… Read More I Carry Him

North out of Yellowstone, a two-lane road snaked along the hillside and next to a dark blue-green river, white ripples cascading from rocks. Around a bend, traffic slowed to a stop and go. I pressed and released the break with patience born from heart full of bison, caribou, and mineral pools.
Onto a straightaway, we saw a bull elk down river, and knew the traffic jam was for him.… Read More Children of the Earth and Sky
Hills that beg you to keep seeking the other side. The sky that calls you to fly up and above to the mountains of your dreams. My Grandfather, who I never knew, grew among the grasses and hills, the deer and moose and grizzly, and under that sky who called. … Read More My Grandfather’s Sky
