The second big winter storm of the season hit the ranch this week, another example of the Wild Core of Nature. I love the feeling of vulnerability that i get from this reminder of the creators presence.
That feeling was compounded when i ventured out to go to the barn and found myself stopped in my tracks by deep snowdrifts and strong winds. What normally was a sort trip to the barn became like a journey to the South Pole through snow caves and crevasses. I thought of how it was in the early days of the first settlers of these Great Plains when they would be trapped and isolated by all this white stuff.
Well i am off to experience that deep spiritual passion within the natural world. Now where are those snowshoes and my facemask ?
