I feel quite frazzled as it is too. But am though like raspberry bushes and roses.
So i imagine the roses and berries to be quite content too having been grazed over by the Elk.
I have so much on the go lately, that i do feel happy but quite overwhelmed.
I did get published as a writer, but am waiting for my editor to say if i can make a link here. He first want you to be able to pick up a copy of the magazine before you read it here.
The magazine is What's up Yukon. It was amazing yesterday when i was skiing on mnt. Sima, how many people read the magazine, and had recognized m being in there.
So know i enjoy this bit of fame, i better keep writing and let the Elk do there thing.
And a little update on the feral horses, luckily the government didn't catch them all. I had a conversation Friday with a horsewoman. And she know too that the feral horses are better of in the wild, than they are being kept in a coral with all the water and food that the owner can give them. She even believes that the rate of survival is very high when they live in the wild.
And i know for a fact that they look healthier than the neighbour's horses.
Let us all roam free!

The weather here warmed up a little bit.
Often when there is a cold spell like this, you do not want to be in town. Here in Mendenhall on those days it's sunny and no wind.
I am still posting photos from New Mexico.
November 24 2010 we often came to fences like this, to keep the cows in or out. we open them , drive through and close them behind us.
And as i like to contemplate on things like that. In life sometimes one has to open the gate, go through and close of the things that now lay behind. In life one can't always go back that easily. when you enter a new period in your life that's it. I already started the journey, but i wonder when i really will go through that gate and don't come back?
It's all in the beholder of the eye , all those good things. And i have to be open to see it. In life the joy often is in the little things. And i feel i have a knack for seeing them. And i feel very happy these days.
But there is something essentially wrong in my life. How long before i go through that gate and close it behind me. I know the treasures i will find won't be better or worse. One side of the fence looks identical to the other side, and it's just a matter of who leases the land and where you want your cows to be. I giggle about that one, maybe i am the cow and i want a different rancher. But i like my pasture with all its freedom within and it's beautiful rocks. It's just my marriage is not good, really actually the thing is we are not on the same side of the fence anymore. The companionship is lost.........

The photo's underneath are at a tat warmer temperatures. Taken November 23 2010
The only similarity of those photos and today
Is that a photo doesn't always show the deep beauty of something
These photos were taken in the Animas mountains on one of my longer hikes in New Mexico, I hiked that day by myself. The photos seem kind of dull, but truly the desert is full of beautiful soft colors in the rocks and the plant life amazing, the ridges steep, the views endless.

Can you believe it? 2011.
And i don't know why i am so darn happy?
Going into 2010 i tell you, i felt quite different, through the endless tears i cried, i cannot remember if on that new years morning if i maybe saw a little light of what was to come that year.
Hey :) nothing really changed in the big picture, here i am sitting behind the computer. From yesterday to today a lot changed; it is -4 C. outside, hot hot hot we call that. Yesterday the wind blew most of that snow of the trees.
I didn't even stay up to midnight, i did not bake oliebollen, still i am all smiles, my heart surges with joy.
I know it's called being loved, i know it's more pathetically than you think.
It's also me, loving me.
It's also my family happy.
I phoned my mom this morning. It happened to be that ALL of them where together (except me and my brother here in Canada that is) I could here them all laughing and noisy as we are (all this quiet here i tell you i am from a very loud family).
Bart (my favorite nephew:) answered the phone. My mom was so happy, she could hardly hear me. She had spend new years eve on her balcony with her best friends watching
the "incredible beautiful" fireworks from her balcony. She lives in the middle of the town. She didn't like the big 'bombs' exploding all day, the house shaking. I do miss the wildness of New Years eve in Holland. Even now i know you still here some firecrackers.
Here, here all is still :) the sky is turning morning blue, the stars are fading, no sound, no wind, when i stand in the soft weather long enough i hear in the far far distance a Raven talking....
