Two Kinds of LIght

“There are two kinds of light – the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures.”

 ~James Thurber

Good Morning from Minnesota!!!

I don’t know about you, but I dearly miss the badlands sunrise! The quietness and the solitude. That is the hardest adjustment so far, but upstairs are sleeping two little wonders, Amaya and Ellie, and their energy and personalities far make up for the lack of Dakota landscape. They are our 10 and 8-year-old granddaughter’s and they are spending the week, along with their 13-year-old sister who we pick up this evening. We are going to watch her pitch in a fast pitch softball game.

Michael, my husband, has been working hard clearing a spot in our woods along Wells Creek for camping this week and even found a nine-person tent for a home away from home that we will set up on Wednesday!

Our part of Minnesota this morning is blanketed in fog! the moisture is dripping from the trees and the humidity, of course, is high but still cool. The green goes on forever and ever! Green everywhere—grass, corn, beans, hayfields—all thick and lush–no end to it! Green—did I mention green? The birds are singing and last night Ellie asked if I could shut the bedroom window because the tree frogs were announcing the night in consistent and loud decibels.

But here we have Bob’s Brutus illuminated by early morning light on Sunday, June 21st on top of the Boicourt Ridge with several other bands. I had the immense pleasure of chasing the sunrise with my dear friend, David Jones that morning, and later in the day meeting two new amazing people Amber and Elizabeth!

I hope you bear with me as I relive moments over the past few months. It will be my connection to the land of the wild ones and keeping me motivated to Fly Without Wings!

Have an amazing day in your part of the world! Thank you for the heartfelt comments on my last post! You made me teary!
