A Part of This



Dark woods surround us

Snow coated trees attest cold

Give-welcome home scents.


Mother Earth



short hike


Captain Planet, Mother Earth & Sugar bear on top of Saddleback Mt. in ME.

The Captain sailed up this mountain…me, not so fast.  False summits are tough.  I had just sat down at the top, proud I did it, when two strapping young men literally ran up this mountain…they laughed when they saw my expression of disbelief.  Really?  I’m still proud… it was a tough trail for Mother Earth.
