In Big Sky Country the drama of light play over mountain peaks is ever changing, always moving. Storms stampede across the horizon. Wind can be perilous, and the snow is deep. Wildlife visit daily. Life here is spacious and  quiet, but never dull. Yes, we are touched by global tragedies and technological advances just like every other place in the US and the world. Our pace can be rugged and hurried if we aren’t careful.

To be still is a daily, moment-by-moment choice. I try to choose silence, simplicity and solitude whenever I can so that I might have space to welcome others into, and an offering of peace upon leaving.

So, welcome to my kitchen table where sunshine streams in and fresh brewed coffee is ready to be poured. I look forward to your company while exploring stories of becoming, in a fashion where appearance and ambition are of little concern. Here we can dare to be known, even in the rough. If a post is subpar or boring, no biggie, just take a pass. If these reflections bring life and hope, wonderful. In the meantime, these early drafts sans the glory of professional photos and graphics and in desperate need of SEO titles, scannable text, and live links, are straight out of the center of my chest.

Austin Kleon, author of brilliant books like Show Your Work, suggests that if we share what we love, those who love the same things will find us. I’m counting on that.
