What I Want to Do:

Lovin Livin the Mountain Life
I just moved away from Missoula, Montana, now living in Flagstaff, AZ for the summer. I just graduated from college, and in the fall I'm doing an internship in California at the San Mateo Outdoor Education center for a year working with 4th and 5th graders from around the area. It's an hour north of Santa Cruz and an hour south of San Francisco in the middle of the redwoods on the coast...I can't wait! My passion is teaching children about the environment through creative expression. I hope to plant the seeds for little stewards who will grow into environmentally conscious adults. I also love to explore new places and see what I can see, so I'm not going to be in one place for too long for a while!

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined! As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler, solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness." ~Henry David Thoreau

Here is some of my poetry
(I figured it's appropriate considering my writing is mostly inspired by nature)

This is about my childhood:

Living my little life
Running through familiar trees
Sun sparkles on dirty blonde hair
Curls wave with the leaves

Crawling through the cattails
Squishing mud between my toes
The juice of wild raspberries
Stain my ripped up clothes

Singing with the bullfrogs
Dancing to the pond's soft edge
Tufts of white dandelion wishes
Wander through my head

Taking a breath I blow, eyes closed
Releasing my dreams into the harsh wind
Into the reality of the world
Beyond my woods and wild kin

This is about me:

I'm a wildwood wind drifter
I travel with thick-soled feet
I'm an everlasting soul searcher
My eyes so heavy with dreams

My heart is an open book
Changed by the people I meet
The pages as clearly colorful
As waving butterfly wings

I soak in the love and again I'm gone
The leaves dance as I walk on
And the wind whispers a traveling song
To help me on my journey

Another new place, another new page
The whiteness empty, waiting to be played
I learn from my past, but savor the present
Knowing I will always be this hungry

Quotation My help is in the mountain
Where I take myself to heal
The earthly wounds that people give to me.
I find a rock with sun on it
And a stream where the water runs gentle
And the trees which one by one give me company.
So I must stay for a long time
Until I have grown from the rock
And the stream is running through me
And I cannot tell myself from on tall tree.
Then I know that nothing touches me
Nor makes me run away.
My help is in the mountain
That I take away with me.
