Last day of May...

As much as I was dreading a long week was an easy week.

I took my bike out a few times, visited with friends and met a few new locals.

The weather was iffy dictating my activities.

I have a few days of work, a couple errands to run and weekend plans in Boulder and Vail.

My Sunday morning routine always seems to start off the week right.

An easy start, a little prairie home companion, a few practical moments and the rest comes easy.

Sowelu; rune of wholeness; I can of mine own self do nothing

an oddity about men

Last night I had a dream about DJ, it hit me like a brick.

I was searching for him, in apt buildings full of beds and people.

I was stopping people and begging them...where is he where has he gone?

I think I knew he was far away, but I kept feeling that I was catching glimpses of him.

It was unsettling.

On an entirely different note,
I've decided men are like ice cream
some flavors are good, but I would not go back for seconds.
some are new & exciting, but they are usually on limited edition,
so you never know when you will get a chance to have it again.
many are great, so you can always fall back on those flavors in a pinch.
I keep looking for the one that will blow my mind!

It's been a quiet cloudy day...I have enjoyed it.

back to spring...

My return to Colorado is colored in spring...
blooming purple & white flowers on the trees
greenery everywhere.

I don't even mind the rain... it is cooling and inviting.

I slept all day yesterday dreaming of island life as if I was rejecting my return.

But today, I feel ready to embrace spring and my simple life in CO.

The cool fresh air and the eagle river outside my window has helped me ease back into my life.

The great thing about adventures is returning with a bigger perspective, however the challenge is trying to keep that perspective as open and new as it is now, because soon the reality that surrounds me will take up my thoughts.

I'm glad to be home...

Sorry..I didn't realize

A month has past.....since my last post.

The ski season is over and on a rainy Sunday like today it feels like Spring.

I have been busy, last month I earned my Wilderness First Responder Certification; it will open opportunities for camps next summer.

This summer I am sticking with the Meet the Wilderness gig....

It has already provided two weeks of work; taking forth graders to Colorado National Monument.

It has been fun hiking, climbing, camping and chasing lizards in the desert.

I still find so much joy in work where I can travel and play.

When I return home, I appreciate my life.

I have been hanging with the locals @ my favorite spot.

It is I am off to Puerto Rico to visit my padre and friends in St. Thomas.

New friends have helped me a ton in the last month and old friends have reappeared.

"make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold;
a circle is round it has no end, that is how long I will be your friend!"
just a simple song that the 4th graders taught me :)
