Myself and my son (TJ)

66 years gone,

thank you friends and family

for the adventures!!


February 4

Snow lays quietly
making winter here, some how . . .
the wood chuck – six weeks.

Why do we worry?
A loved one very far away
Hiking in summer.

My son is in New Zealand walking the Te Araroa Trail through South Island.  I think the internet makes it harder. I watch the New Zealand weather reports and the Te Araroa facebook page.  And I worry. I think that comes with being a mother.
