“In the morning light, I remembered how much I loved the sound of wind through the trees. I laid back and closed my eyes, and I was comforted by the sound of a million tiny leaves dancing on a summer morning.”  – Patrick Carman

The 100,000-acre mountain playground of the Valle Vidal is home to some 2,000 elk – the largest herd in the state – bears, deer, coyotes and amazing bird-life. This “Valley of Life” sits in a high mountain basin of the Carson National Forest, about two hours north of Taos. Elevations here range from the 8,000 foot grasslands to more than 12,000 feet on Little Costilla Peak. The Valle’s massive open meadows dotted with ponderosa pine, radiant groves of aspen and streams lined with cottonwoods.

“Even if I teach you where the path is, you won’t be able to see it because the wind is always changing. If I show you the path in the wind one minute, the wind will shift and the path will disappear the next.”

“Then how do I find it?” Masakichi had asked, worried he’d never be able to do it.

“You must find it anew each time,” his grandfather smiled. “The only way to see the path in the wind is to become the wind itself.”  – Leza Lowitz Shogo Oketani

“When the path ignites a soul,
there’s no remaining in place.

The foot touches ground,
but not for long.”  – Hakim Sanai

…”the wind has its reasons. We just don’t notice as we go about our lives. But then, at some point, we are made to notice. The wind envelops you with a certain purpose in mind, and it rocks you. The wind knows everything that’s inside you. And not just the wind. Everything, including a stone. They all know us very well. From top to bottom. It only occurs to us at certain times. And all we can do is go with those things. As we take them in, we survive, and deepen.”  – Haruki Murakami

  • I wanted to tell you that these blogs are a HUGE part of my day. And, therefore, a HUGE part of my life. I peruse the photos. I read the words. I jump off the cliffs into the ,meanings.
    I thank you.

    It takes a lot of work to be persistant. Even beauty takes persistance.
