  • • Y O S E M I T E • I've spent the last couple days working on my website and getting it into a less-bloggy looking place. It's coming together. I made the updated site live yesterday and would love to know your comments, criticisms and strengths, link on bio. Here's a grab from my last visit in Yosemite. I've been tracking the stories coming out about the government shutdown affecting our National Parks and it's disheartening to see and read how so many visitors are mistreating our nation's wilderness playgrounds, especially in our holy temple, Yosemite. I wish they'd shut down all the parks. Americans need the parks shutdown to understand and know deeper the intolerable sin that is our government so routinely shutting down, as it has over the last decade. Reading that the Yosemite wildlife, which were weaned from human food, have gotten into the bad habits of eating discarded trash and human waste is discouraging, especially in consideration to how long (decades) it took to wean the wildlife off a human diet.

  • 🎶Feeling my way through the darkness, guided by a beating heart. I can’t tell where the journey will end, but I know where to start. They tell me I’m too young to understand. They say I’m caught up in a dream. Well life will pass me by if I don’t open up my eyes. Well that’s fine by me. So wake me up when it’s all over. When I’m wiser and I’m older. All this time I was finding myself and I didn’t know I was lost.
