"Feral ~ from feminine of ferus wild: having escaped from domestication and become wild"...




Monday



Thank you for your kind words,

for sharing,
and
for just listening.

I am thankful for you!


After the 2012 Wildfire

We visited Yellowstone for the very first time.

It was exactly what we needed.


The following is a series of photos 

I shot while there.

e.e. cummings word's 

frames them
perfectly.


And for those who left comments in 2012 &2014;


They were fun to read again :)


They are our blogging memories, together.


Feel free to add more!


:)




Happy Thanksgiving to everyone,


every day!

I thank You God for most this amazing day:



for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and
a blue true dream of sky;



and for everything
which is natural 
which is infinite
which is yes



(i who have died am alive again today,

and this is the sun's birthday;




this is the birth day of life and of love and wings;





and of the gay great happening illimitably earth)




how should 
tasting
touching
hearing
seeing
breathing
any -




lifted from the no of all nothing -




human merely being doubt unimaginable You?





(now the ears of my ears awake
and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)





 i thank you God for most this amazing day

E.E.Cummings on video with the most moving words and voice, unbelievable photos of what must be the most beautiful place on earth, and you my dear dear friend putting it all together after the year you have had makes me so happy and thankful for finding you and us both living where we do.
    It is not my Thanksgiving but I am truly Thankful for all of this today and everything everyday, I do not need a day to tell me that BUT I am happy it brings people together no matter what they believe or are going through.

  14. Well I am thank full that I saw your blog on someones list I went to check out and was drawn to come check out your blog. Something I do very rarely. What beauty you are surrounded by and the ability to capture it so spiritually. E.E. Cummings is also on of my favorites. You are living the life I dreamed of in my early 20's. I have achieved much of it just don't have the body to keep up with it all physically anymore. Many blessing to you. Carrie

I am feral, so although I dont respond at all like most domesticated bloggers, I will try my best - Thank you for even wanting to leave a comment, as it may draw me out from the woods from whence I came!

Or under a rock, it depends most days...
