The Wound of The World, a Gray Wolf Pup And The Ancient Order of Things

Posted on 20. Sep, 2016 by in Blog

In mid-Spring of this year, I found myself driving home with a 6 week old female wolf hybrid. The runt of the litter. Part of a private rescue which required that 19 puppies belonging to three litters of various percentages wolf, be wisely placed in Boulder homes. This little creature, this impossible treasure, who would […]

A Mid-Summer Becoming And A Young Man Leaves Home

Posted on 31. Jul, 2015 by in Blog

This morning I am full of the most welcomed heartbreak. It’s a heartbreak that, as recently as last year, I thought I might not experience in this life time: the mother’s heartbreak of sending her oldest son off into the world to make his way, find his own brilliance and bring it forward. As recently […]

The Songs Beneath The Noise

Posted on 16. Jan, 2015 by in Blog

As a people, those in industrialized culture, we no longer know how to listen for the larger story going on all around us and within us; the story whose substance is what allows us to be here, that when translated back into its original language, sounds like the hum of the land and the song […]

A Flicker, A Raptor & A New Year

Posted on 04. Jan, 2015 by in Blog

This was an extraordinary year. That must always be true, but some years seem to require a more pumped-up celebration at the end, to have me truly feel like something remarkable and complete has wrapped itself up, right at the moment that something else, new and unknown, is sprouting up from its ashes. This year […]

A Lineage of Longing, A Lineage of Beauty

Posted on 30. Nov, 2014 by in Blog

I wrote the poem, below, four years ago this week as I (and my then husband) plowed through the heartbreaking and arduous task of packing up two or three generations of a wealthy family’s collected condensed belongings. My mother was the last of her family still alive, all three sisters and both parents having died […]

“Walking, I am listening to a deeper way. Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me. Be still, they say. Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands.” Linda Hogan, Chickasaw Nation As a people, in industrialized culture, we have lost our fundamental human capacity to be present in our lives; alive […]

This Morning In My Neck Of The Woods…..

Posted on 13. Nov, 2014 by in Blog

Each morning I walk down the hall out into the open room facing South/West with its 10’ wide glass doors framing the fields and the front range of the continental divide. And each morning I gasp, dumbfounded, grab my camera and often run outside mostly naked (in this below-zero weather I put on my giant […]

The Intelligence In Our Full Pleasure

Posted on 07. Oct, 2014 by in Blog

We are taught some dangerous mis-truths about our sexuality. And when I say ‘taught’ I certainly don’t mean literally. For no one ever actually sits down with us and teaches us about this energy or how to touch ourselves when we are children and we are learning. The touch we find our way into as […]

The Care & Feeding of Women, Part I

Posted on 23. Sep, 2014 by in Blog

This morning, once again, there are two roan geldings in the first field. Young, playful, manes and tails full of burs. They canter back and forth with each other, kicking, swishing their bur-filled tails, tossing their heads down and their hind hooves high in the air. They are delighted. They spend hours standing under the […]

Nothing Is Personal – Everything Matters

Posted on 03. Sep, 2014 by in Blog

Tonight I am aware of something, as the mornings get colder and colder upon my waking, watching the elkhound race out to the first field, leaving footprints in the frosty alfalfa shoots, who might imagine they still have a chance this year. I’m aware of how much I am in relationship with this house and […]
