Notes Towards Belonging started in 2010
It was my first foray into expressing myself online.
Was amazing and exploritory.

It truly does document my journey from being very very lost to BECOMING who I am meant to be.

For sometime I have been busy with life and art and not done much journaling here.
But you can find my art projects and my journal of adventures at my

Da ranch

When a long time friend invites one to a ranch called
one must say YES!
morning wake up view from new tent
wander the 200 plus acreage
 fields, flowers, bugs, corrals, horses,
negrita is in chipmunk chasing heaven

serious grasshopper and frog invasions
afternoon downpours




really need to catch up
so many amazing adventures this summer
lets start with CARMANAH / NITNAT
Big trees
Big adventure
Big talks matched with big silences
with my buddy Andrea D.
This is where we slept
on the shores of Nitnat lake
on my stripy wool blanket
I slept outside under a huge sky of stars
clouds, moon and satellites
The mountains were
  black silhouettes drawing 
bodies laying on backs
old faces staring skyward
a photo can't do justice
many of these pics taken by the great Andrea Dorfman
Negrita scooping any shady spot she can
view from the top 
amazing details and innovations found everywhere
magical moss, light, lichen, roots and ferns
scale down
way down
we are tiny
scale up
way up
we are brutal giants
tree bush
tree yoga
lumbering around the forest in our underware
cause it's hot and cause we can
getting grubby like wild forest kids
swimming in wild bodies of clean clear water
 definitely some of the BEST, ENDLESS days of summer had
thanks for coming west and deep into the woods Andrea
Big LOVE to you forever friend!


Where I at

been a long time
been a long time
been a long lonely lonely
been doing lots since last post in Jan.
a time of extremes living side by side
something AMAZING matched with something AWFUL
But lots of large spaces, best friends, big love, beautiful blossoms
to many to list here


Mind Blowing

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.
We have created a society that honors the servant but has forgotten the gift.
-Albert Einstein
Intuitive mind=Right brain
Rational mind=Left brain
Essentially I am a right brain being living in an ever increasing left brain dominated world.

  Humans have spent much time dissecting, categorizing, attributing facts 
and conclusions about how the brain functions and minds work, 
yet, for ages, have failed to realize they were only 
using one side of their brain to do it.
 Essentially we like to think we know the ABC's of left brain / right brain.
But here is a reminder, a new POV,  that re-informs how we think and act at this point in our evolution. 
And how we NEED to re-open the flood gates of our right brain!

 Here are a couple videos that have expanded my thinking about my brains capacity.

An incredible women who is a neuroscientist who observed how a brain functions
while having a stroke!  Her insights are brilliant, funny, emotional, and revolutionary.

 This animation explains how our ‘divided brain’ has profoundly altered human behavior, culture and society. 
A lot of info, I had to watch twice. Second time I paused to read the captions in the animation.
