we belong











 



Isn't it strange how we find a place....a place we wander and explore and listen to and learn from and somehow we decide it's our place. It belongs to us. And then, one day, after years of wandering and believing it is ours, we realize that we belong to that place.

We belong to the sun and the moon and the long dirt roads. We belong to the sage and the storms and the treasures we find.

We belong to the place where the earth meets the sky.

Bless our furry, red-bandana'ed hearts, we belong.

  1. Connectedness. That place has your heart and soul etched in it.
    The Sage clan is whole on THEIR mesa under moon & stars and sun. And hopefully snow!
    1902! Is that a dime? Penny? So SO cool!
    And also the skull under the boulder...well, all those images are beautiful and it all looked so clean & clear. A real freshness to the air.
    I just love that place you belong to.

    1. It's a 1902 quarter! Mr Sage found it with his metal detector and from all the yelling you would have thought he found the Holy Grail! ;)
      And yes, we are whole, connected, and complete on the mesa. It's a beautiful feeling indeed.

    1. It *is* wonderful to belong to a place....a place that fills your heart and soul. I know you know what I mean.
      The drawings were something I've been thinking about for a while. I finally had the time to sit on the rim of the mesa and put the thoughts to paper. Glad you like them.

  3. Oh yes! Love seeing your landscape and all that entails. Love those illustrations. Can't wait to see more.
    What is Durango looking up at? I love that!
    Glad you got to get out and about and feed your soul! Give those pups a hug for me:-)

    1. Thanks, Wendy! I had alot of fun with the drawings.
      And talk about laying low....I am the expert at that. Sometimes you just have to drop out for a while, right?

      One more TWD episode this year!! Where did the time go? I'm still hoping to see a little more of the Carol, Morgan, and Ezekiel story line!

      No, I'm not on Instagram. To be honest, I don't even have a smartphone!
