My life has been so blessed overall–but I/we surely got dealt our lifetime ration of yuck over the past six months!!
In January, my beautiful young Rocky Mountain Horse, Shambhala Sunrise, died ; our local property “caretakers” did the opposite of taking care of us and our property, instead figuring out how to destroy our yurt, and bilk us and the state of California, no more said about them, but we don’t miss them; the son of a (unbeknownst to us uninsured) roofer fell off the roof of our ranch in the Sierras; my truck was vandalized and my wallet and ID was stolen by a ring of sophisticated identity thieves; we had to cancel our long awaited trip to visit our godson in South America when my beloved husband, Jim, was diagnosed (mis, fortunately) with colon cancer; my new horse bucked me off twice and fractured my collar bone. I didn’t feel like talking much about it all! IT seemed like a good time to observe “SILENT SPRING” and wait until the dark clouds passed over.
Today, in celebration of the end of that Silent Spring, we are back on track-marking the end of the winter of our discontent and celebrating our 30th Anniversary with a tandem bicycle trip following the Rhine and Moselle Rivers, More to follow!
