Gypsy within…

on

Since I was a young child, I was affected by the change of season, the moon, and the wind… I have always felt the earth in my body, the wind at my back, and the moon in my soul. I grew up in a small town in Ontario… lived close to a river and a lake…explored the river, collecting minnows and various creatures from beneath the surface… I always pushed the limits, so nearly drowned in the lake several times, and fell through the ice into the harsh cold of nearly frozen water more than once:-)… I embraced and experienced life to it’s fullest, partially in an effort to escape reality…

During my childhood, my roots were strong and well established…but there was a turning point…I was transplanted too young and some of my roots were root bound… it seemed that, no matter how hard I tried to stay put…the wind, the moon, and the seasons called to me…I felt them in my womb, in my yoni, and in my heart… calling to me like a long lost lover…I traveled for a stretch, exploring both Canada and the US…most of all, I learned about myself…the ego, the pride, the woman I identify with as self…

Over the past 6 years I have spent on the West Coast, I have learned the most about myself..I see this experience as my vision quest…I was soaked up by salt spring for a time, experienced the beauty of the mountains, the ocean, and the laid back culture of the West…dove into the city life, at glorious food, drank delicious wines, met curious, creative, and interesting people from all walks of life…

But my own land is calling to me… asking me to farm her, explore her, experience her… It is time to go home and maybe even plant my roots… feel the rhythm of the earth rippling through the souls of my feet while the energy from the heavens above ripple down through the crown of my head… while I ride horses, farm the land, feel the heat from a wood stove…seeing what the Ottawa Valley has to offer me…but more importantly, what I can offer the Ottawa Valley…

“It is impossible to imagine a more complete fusion with nature than that of the Gypsy.” ~ Franz Liszt

    hmmm…well, going back home was a dream…I spent 4 months helping out on my father’s ranch, visiting family and friends, only to realize I already have roots… on the West Coast! so, here I am, once again immersing myself in the diverse culture and landscape of glorious Washington State!
