 Eventide begins with a rainbow over the Swan Range. Storms raging to the north with sun peaking through the clouds here and there.
 Rain over the last two months once again swells Echo Lake and the Causeway is swallowed once more. This happened last summer from the snow melt that resulted from the heavy snow pack of 2010 -2011 winter.
As the evening progresses the mountains surrounding the Jewel Basin take on the quiet blues of deep twilight. A peaceful time of the night . Still waters still minds.

Saturday Solitude

Fields of Gold

alpine glow reflected on the clouds

A moment of splendor

Tuesday, July 3, 2012


 It is a Wilding day. The wind is whooshing through the open windows making high pitched whistling sounds. Outside the trees are thrashing as the alternating gray and white poofy clouds race across the sky. Every where in the yard there is a wild feel to it .

 The cat chimes are singing on the front porch in the wild wind. Sometimes tossed with great vigor and flying sideways mimicking the tossing of the trees.
 Wilding involves creating a space where the essential life elements are welcomed in. Wind , Sun , Rain, Snow, and Starshine. A welcoming space for the creatures that inhabit this world. A space to beckon the pollinators . Lush grass for the grazers. Clover for the Bumble bees. A lush garden to nourish body and soul of many.
lillies, foxglove, daisies and wild flowers grow in profusion

happy yellow and red flowers

As subtle as lavender is as a bloom it makes up for it's quiet presence with a beautiful scent. I can only imagine how magnificent an entire field must be.

"I think over again my small adventures, my fears.
Those small ones that seemed so big.
For all the vital things I had to get and to reach.
And yet there is only one great thing, the only thing:
To live to see the great day that dawns
and the light that fills the world."        ~Inuit Song 

Create your own Wilding space. Invite the Sun, Moon,Wind and Rain to be a part of your space.
