Do all we can to protect our planet and those that cannot speak for themselves!

A native of L.A., I came to Maine in 2001 for the serenity and pristine beauty abundant here. I chose to live in a country setting and enjoy being surrounded by nature's forests, streams, rivers and the abundant wildlife here. On my pond I can see beaver and deer, hear ducks and loons, and watch the occasional bald eagle that makes its home in the St. Croix Island on the River for which it is named. 

Although it is breathtakingly beautiful here, I will be moving back to the West Coast to be closer to my children and grandchildren and will be looking for property in WA or OR where I can rescue some wild horses and retired race horses before they are sold to slaughter.                                                                                  

My mission is to save our wild horses from the illegal activities of the BLM and to save our wolves by any means possible

 A child of nature I was born 
A spirit gifted with love and freedom
Nurtured by wisdom borne of goodness
And reverence for all that is of the earth 
The gentle breeze, a ray of sunshine, a thunderstorm
The fragrance of wet grass from a new rain
A trail littered with leaves t
hat crackled beneath my feet as I ran free
The smell, feel, and love for horses
The sense of freedom, and the wonder of solitude as I rode along the wooded trails s
heltered by majestic maples, giant pines and scrub oaks
Lying in a field of wild grass watching the clouds float swiftly by, c
radled by the feeling of contented solitude
and rocked within the loving arms of nature

Even as a child these things were all that was good
I never felt fear from the thunder 
Instead it brought me a sense of excitement 
I know not why, yet still today I feel the same
As a child, I felt the embrace of love and a warm hearth 
Felt the splendor of a hot bubble bath as I listened to the howling wind outside my safe haven 
Love for all the elements was taught to me
Or perhaps it was a gift of birth 
Perhaps a bit of both...
I am not certain   
The earth speaks to me
The forest calls to me 
Has it always been thus? 
I believe so, for in the wisdom of my years I look back now and recognize the same feelings I had as a child 
The same yearning for all that is beautiful and free 
 Yet, somehow along the path of life these things were all but lost to me 
They were still there, but I was not 
I suppose, upon reflection that it was I who was lost
For nature remains steadfast in its beauty 
How does one lose the way, I mused? 
That is a complicated issue, I fear...It matters not
I could say that perhaps it was the city life and social pressure 
Few trees there
Only buildings, tract houses
A marriage, two cars, two children a
nd a life style that was expected
Would this be the truth?  Perhaps
Does it matter?  I think not   
What matters is now for I have returned to the person that I was born to be, knowing my destiny is the evolution of the person I was born to become 
Like a butterfly that leaves the cocoon
Beautiful and
A part of nature and all its surroundings
The answer was formed in the majesty of the mountains Within their forests the wounds of the past inflicted upon my senses slowly healed
I became whole again 
There was a time I examined everything with scrutiny 
I was skeptical, I was cynical, and I was a non-believer 
I doubted and second-guessed my own sense of what was real 
Faith was a missing component 
I suppose this can be understood. for there was much in humanity that made me thus
I realized that although I was always there for those who needed me, they were seldom there for me
This was not problematic for I never gave with expectation 
Hence disappointments were minimal
I learned that mankind was a disappointment in general , bent on destroying nature’s beauty through carelessness and greed
I felt apart from this multitude of the masses
Was I better than the rest?  I think not 
Was I different?   It would seem so 
Thus, I felt a sense of separateness...a spiritual being alone in a material world gone amuck 
I learned that I could not trust
Giving love to anyone other than my children, parents and siblings was dangerous and painful   
And then I let it all go
I asked for and received my answers
I became content within myself and looked for serenity within the beauty of the gifts bestowed upon us by the Creator
The majestic mountains, forests, lakes and streams 
The love and reverence for all His creatures 
The wild animals that live with honor and are true to their species 
I am one of them 
For a time I doubted that there was another being on the planet I could relate to
No one that could understand my soul
Therefore I was destined to walk life’s path alone
But I was not bitter nor did I feel lonely
Somehow I sensed something was coming 
I knew not what, yet I was ready  
Was I told this in a dream?  I know not
Perhaps it was a sense of destiny... a sense that something was about to happen
I began by listening to my inner voice, or was it God answering my heart?
It was surprisingly easy after that first experience 
The fact that I could feel it within me filled me with a sense of joy and wonder 
Now I listen to my instincts and heed my feelings
I listen to my heart
I have learned to pay attention, and not to doubt the things I feel
I have learned to trust myself 
My spiritual essence has risen victorious from the wars of life for I know my soul
Through God’s grace, I can give and receive love with a free spirit and an open heart
Through God’s grace, I have found spirits kindred to my own
Special beings who cherish the earth and are connected to all that dwell here
Who can recognize and understand who and what I am
I am a believer.

About Me Born and educated in LA, I moved to ME from CA in 01 escaping the city to embrace the splendor of the four seasons. Now retired, I pour my energies into the cause closest to my heart saving our wild horses. I enjoy reading/writing, gardening/cooking, have a passion for music, a dedication to and a love of horses, enjoy riding, theater/art, dining/dancing as well as fishing, boating, walking, camping and sitting by a campfire playing a guitar.
There is something spiritually fulfilling in the haunting sound of the loons on a moonlit night; thundering hooves beneath me as I ride across open fields; the warm, soft muzzle of a horse in the early morning; wind howling though the trees as I sit by a cozy fire; snow gently falling outside my window; once verdant trees resplendently transformed into brilliant hues of crimson and gold on a crisp autumn day; leaves crackling beneath my feet as I stroll along a country path; the pungent fragrance of the damp earth after a new rain; birds rejoicing in the coming of spring; a gentle breeze on a warm summer day; water lapping the side of a canoe as it glides through crystal water; the wind upon my face while sailing on the ocean. These are but a few of the treasured gifts that nature bestows upon us all. I am blessed to live surrounded by such beauty, and will do whatever I can to protect it.

My Philosophy Live well, love much, laugh often
What Gives Me Hope Each new day!
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Appoint an unwaveringly honest and capable individual as Secretary of the Department of the Interior who will reorganize the BLM and put the interests of the people and the wild horses under their protection above those of welfare ranchers who want to use our public lands to graze their cattle. We need to put a stop to subsidizing these ranchers with taxpayer dollars and let the horses run free on the lands allocated for them by the Wild Horses and Burro Act of 1971. Not allow special interest groups to make donations to political campaigns. Clean up our elections and keep big business out of politics.
What/who changed my life and why "Never Cry Wolf" would be certainly one, because it taught me the family structure of the pack. We should all live with such love, loyalty and ethics of these beautiful creatures.
