How do we heal?

Sadness mixes with anger

how do we live in a world

where the unfathomable happens?

It’s not possible to avoid the news.

My choice is to focus on the beauty,

the beauty that surrounds me.

If only nature could impact others

in the ways it does me.

Three dogs and a trail

Friday morning, before the 70 degree weekend melted most of the snow, Charlie and I joined 2 canine and 1 human friend for a snowy hike.

It was a fun challenge with sunny skies and new dog in the mix. Charlie and Laine, the Springer Spaniel, ran and chased their usual dance, tiring each other out. Cleo, who seemed to want no part of their chaos, aligned herself with the humans.

These photos are from a rest stop near the end of our hike. As you can see, Charlie’s puppy energy was still in high gear and Laine isn’t the least bit tired.

Continental Divide

I remember a John Belushi fish-out-of-water movie from the 1980s named Continental Divide. It may have been my first exposure to the beauty that is Colorado.

This exquisite view, snow capped peaks above tree line is something I appreciate every time I see it.
